Strap in for a good ole fashioned high-speed showdown between the world's greatest exotic cars -- Ferrari, Porsche, McLaren -- and a Tesla???
It's the seventh edition of Motor Trend's "World's Greatest Drag Race" and this year the big boys from Italy, Germany and Detroit are getting some electric competition. To be fair, the Tesla Model S P100D was the heaviest car in the lineup, but y'know what guys always say ... maybe size doesn't matter.
Who do you think won the World's Greatest Drag Race!! Before watching the video I picked the Ferrari. I think the end is going to surprise you.
Alfa Romeo Giulia
Mercedes AMG GTR
McLaren 570 GT
Ferrari 488 GTB
Tesla Model S P100D
Porsche 911 Turbo S
As part of Motor Trend’s annual Best Driver’s Car competition powered by Mothers, we line up the contenders on an airstrip and bask in the glory of horsepower, wheelspin, and launch control. This year, Senior Features Editors Jason Cammisa and Jonny Lieberman give you a quick tour of the 12 competitors before strapping into their insurance-mandated helmets and firesuits and introducing pedal to metal.
This year, the contestants are the Acura NSX, Aston Martin V12 Vantage S manual, Audi R8 V10 Plus, BMW M4 GTS, Chevrolet Camaro SS 1LE, Dodge Viper ACR, Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R, Jaguar F-Type SVR, McLaren 570S, Mercedes-AMG GT S, Nissan GT-R, and Porsche 911 Carrera S—except for one small addition after Jason realizes Jonny’s Dodge Charger Hellcat is parked nearby.
