Motor Trend has been producing its World’s Greatest Drag Race series since 2011. Now look back at a decade worth of amazing sports cars battling it out for straight line supremacy, from the original Nissan GT-R to the McLaren Senna to the Porsche 911 Turbo S. It’s worth watching just for the exhaust notes alone.
Awesome Drag Races
Enjoy watching MotorTrend’s annual sports car showdown? Well, here’s something you’ll really like, a compilation of every World’s Greatest Drag Race from 2011 through 2019. Watch as awesome cars from Ford to Ferrari compete for straight line dominance. It’s a solid 23 minutes of automotive bliss.
In a quest for straight-line supremacy, MotorTrend gathered a dozen of the fastest sports cars money can buy. With cars like the McLaren Senna, Porsche 911 Carrera S, Jaguar XE SV Project 8, and Aston Martin DBS Superleggera, it’s gonna be a tough competition down the runway – first in a 1/4-mile, then in a 1/2-mile drag race.
A 1/4-mile time of 15.495 seconds isn’t exactly earth-shaking. But this is no ordinary car – it’s a small building. Watch as Kevin Nicks‘ converted 1999 VW Passat with an Audi RS4 drivetrain manages to beat a Vauxhall Astra H in a drag race. Apparently the shed has done the same in as little as 14.6 seconds, and tops out at 112.68 mph.
Motor Trend’s annual supercar showdown icnludes 12 amazing rides, like the Acura NSX, Jaguar F-Type SVR, Audi R8 V10, McLaren 570S, Camaro SS and more. We wonder if the results would have been different if the Corvette Grand Sport showed up. Watch them drag race here.
