Ever wonder what it would be like to watch $1.1 million worth of super car hardware duke it on a head to head to head to head to head race? Now is your chance!
MotorTrend.com brought five of the world’s most powerful (and recognizable) super cars to an abandoned air field in southern California and lined them up, side by side, to compete in a timed race.
The racers include an Audi R8, a Ferrari F430, a Lamborghini Gallardo LP560, a Maserati Granturismo and a Mercedes McLaren SLR Coupe. Each of these vehicles descends from a long line of super cars. They all boast power and prestige unparalleled in the automobile world and each is deserving of the title as “One of the world’s greatest super cars.” But which one is fastest across the line? Which of these super super cars would out power, out race and out match the others?
It was all over in just 11.8 seconds. But listening to the engines rev and watching the pure power and speed of these mean machines was worth every second. It stands to reason who the winner is, especially when they run down the numbers in terms of horsepower and weight, but it is still worth it to see this much power (this much value) tear down the track.
