Epic Hypercar Throwdown

September 9th, 2017

Warning: The sights and sounds captured in this eleven-minute video may cause feelings of false euphoria. Sports car enthusiasts may feel as though they have been transported to some sort of hypercar heaven. Watch at your own risk.

As majestic as the background of this video appears, the most stunning elements are found in rolling stock. Nestled at the bottom of a beautiful mountain range, hundreds-of-millions of dollars worth of automobiles have gathered on a deserted airstrip. These are not trailer queens with no mileage on the odometer; these cars are meant to be driven – and driven hard.

Drag races, donuts, and standing (half-mile) top-speed hits are in order as these elite sports cars – from every continent – let it all hang out. Everything from vintage sports coupes to Le Mans racers are on hand to pound the pavement and strut their stuff.

Notable entries include a Ferrari F12 TRS. This Italian rocket is extremely rare and features a 750hp V12 engine. There is also a Porsche 911 GT1. It is an ultra-lightweight race car with a water-cooled, mid-mounted, 3.2-liter, twin turbocharged engine. You may recognize the Mercedes-Benz CLK GTR from your Gran Turismo video game. It also sports a lightweight racing chassis with a 6.0-liter V12 engine.

This is truly a must see video!
