Ferrari 458 Italia vs. Ford GT
LISTEN TO THAT GT ROAR. Run sets up at 0:25. Ford GT vs Ferrari 458 Italia, not hard racing because of traffic, but still a great time! Chase car is 2010 Camaro SS, and the reason for the crap feedback after the run is a 12" Rockford Fosgate sub that we decided to turn on, so sorry about that...
2011 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG vs 2007 Ferrari F430 Drag Racing Racelegal.com 6-29-2012
Friday night race your ride at qualcomm stadium racelegal drag racing 2007 Ferrari F430 vs 2011 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG The body styling of the F430 was revised from its predecessor, the Ferrari 360, to improve its aerodynamic efficiency. Although the drag coefficient remained the same, downforce was greatly enhanced. Despite sharing the the same basic Alcoa Aluminium chassis, roof line, doors and glass, the car looked significantly different than the 360. A great deal of Ferrari heritage was included in the exterior design. At the rear, the Enzo's tail lights and interior vents were added. The car's name was etched into the Testarossa-styled driver's side mirror. The large oval openings in the front bumper are reminiscent of Ferrari racing models from the 60s, specifically the 156 "sharknose" Formula One car and 250 TR61 Le Mans cars of Phil Hill.
The F430 features a 4.3L V8 petrol engine derived from a shared Ferrari/Maserati design. This new power plant was a significant departure for Ferrari, as all previous Ferrari V8s were descendants of the Dino racing program of the 1950s. This fifty year development cycle came to an end with the entirely new 4.3L, the architecture of which is expected to replace the Dino-derived V12 in most other Ferrari cars. The engine's output specifications are: 490 PS (360 kW; 483 hp) at 8500 rpm and 465 N·m (343 lb·ft) of torque at 5250 rpm, 80% of which is available below 3500rpm. Despite a 20% increase in displacement, engine weight grew by only 4 kg and engine dimensions were decreased, for easier packaging. The connecting rods, pistons and crankshaft were all entirely new, while the four-valve cylinder head, valves and intake trumpets were copied directly from Formula 1 engines, for ideal volumetric efficiency. The F430 has a top speed of 196 mph It's five and a half feet long. It weighs 8.8 pounds. Height of an adult female, weight of a gallon or so of gas—these are the critical dimensions of the carbon-fiber driveshaft running between the engine and the rear-mounted transaxle in the new Mercedes SLS AMG. We note this here because, despite the car's retro-gullwing looks, the SLS is utterly bleeding edge—both in terms of its technical attributes and what it represents for Mercedes' in-house tuner. It is not simply a Mercedes with bigger wheels and a breathed-upon V-8 or V-12. It is, down to its churning carbon-fiber core, AMG's first dedicated automobile and the very antithesis of the overly complex and overweight half. The SLS is a serious super sports car," says AMG chief of development Tobias Moers before taking a shot at the SLR, a carbon-fiber-bodied car that still managed to weigh in at 3858 pounds. "Our SLS weighs only 3572 pounds," he says, nearly 300 pounds lighter than the McMerc. Keeping the 182.6-inch-long, two-seat SLS's mass in check is its entirely aluminum construction (save for that driveshaft and steel A-pillars), a first for Mercedes-Benz. The aluminum structure weighs just 531 pounds, Mercedes says.
Ferrari 458 vs Mclaren MP4 Drag Races
Ferrari 458 vs McLaren MP4-12c at Sacramento Dragstrip. Stock, privately-owned vehicles on stock (non-corsa) tires and 91 octane pump gas. No launch control for the 458-MP4 races.
Notes: (1) the race outcomes were determined by traction. Both cars spun through first gear; the Ferrari would also spin on the 1-2 and 2-3 shift (see 1:32) and the driver backed off rather than risk the car; (2) the Ferrari consistently launched better, approximately 0.1 secs in the 60'; (3) the McLaren has more power once it hooks up; gaining 4 mph on the big end of the track vs the Ferrari.
We agree we want a rematch with sticker tires, 93 octane, and launch control. Stay tuned!
