Audi vs. McLaren – Drag Race

October 10th, 2016

audi-vs-mclaren-drag-raceHere is a big-money brawl between two mass-produced supercars. For those who may watch this video and think that all cars of this caliber are the same, keep in mind that this is the baddest Audi on the menu (an R8 Plus Quattro S Tronic) and the most conservative McLaren (a 570S). Take a look.

This contest will be a dig race between two cars with similar horsepower specs. The Audi is an all-wheel drive coupe and the McLaren is rear-wheel drive but the R8 outweighs the 570S by more than 400-pounds. With 610hp, the R8 bolts from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.6-seconds and has a top speed of 205 mph. The Audi uses a naturally aspirated, 5.2-liter, V10 engine. McLaren has chosen to go with a smaller, twin turbocharged, 3.8-liter, V8 engine that is capable of producing 562hp. This ought to be a good one.

As the drivers assume their respective positions, they share their opinions about the vehicles, then buckle up for some head-to-head action. The starter gives the signal and the Audi jumps out front by a small margin. Surprisingly, it remains that way until the finish with the McLaren getting beaten by the narrowest of margins.
