Motor Trend Presents: The World's Greatest Drag Race 2
4,730 horsepower and 4,037 lb-ft of twist in $1.3 million worth of cars at an abandoned airstrip. What more could you want?
Let's check the math: Nine incredible pieces of machinery -- everything from a fantastically nimble 200-horsepower rear-wheel-drive Subaru to a fire-breathing all-wheel-drive Aventador with 691 horsepower -- totaling 68 cylinders, 4,730 horsepower, 4,037 lb-ft of torque and more than $1.3 million worth of sheet metal.
I know what you're thinking: Please, please tell me they brought all those cars to an abandoned airstrip and had a drag race.
Why, yes. Yes they did. Below, please enjoy Motor Trend's second annual edition of The World's Greatest Drag Race -- The World's Greatest Drag Race ... uh, 2.
WHAT A BUNCH OF BULLS__T!!! They must have had the world's WORST driver in the Shelby GT500 for it to run an 11.6 on their quarter mile. You can see the person in the GT500 "dogging it" on the line at the start of the video. I click off consistant 10.9's (on a NHRA sanction track - Gainesville, FL) all day long in my factory stock 2013 Shelby GT500 with OEM street tires and 93 octane pump gas. I got the car 4 months ago and so far my best time has been a 10.933 - almost as fast as the "millionaire sleds" that ran this race. As usual another Motor Trend "compairison" with questionable (skewed) results.
