Street Hits – Ferrari 488 Pista vs. Mclaren 720S and Audi R8

August 20th, 2019

Taking it to the streets (of Mexico) for some supercar street hits. This video documents a rare occurrence in the street racing ranks. Most of these contests are carried out under cover of darkness but this clip is produced during daylight hours. Check it out.

Seems that someone has a new Ferrari and he wants to test it out against elite level competition. The 2019 488 Pista is equipped with a 3.9-liter twin turbocharged V8 engine. It is capable of producing 710hp, blasting from 0 to 60 mph in 2.8-seconds and has an electronically controlled top speed of 211 mph. Both this car and the McLaren are outfitted with Gintani high-performance exhaust systems and both cars are tuned by Gintani for maximum performance.

The McLaren 720S is the lead dog of this pack. It comes from the factory with a 4.0-liter twin turbocharged V8. Like the 488 Pista, it makes 710hp and the torque numbers are also identical. Both cars use a dual-clutch 7-speed automatic transmission. The McLaren has the edge in overall weight by less than a hundred pounds.

Despite the similarities, it seems as though the 720S is a cat toying with its prey, as it effortlessly banishes the Ferrari in hit after hit.

Have a look for yourself. The Ferrari takes on an Audi R8 and a Nissan GT-R as well. Nice clip.
