    Motor Trend: World's Greatest Drag Race - GTR-458-R8GT-SLS-LFA-Z06-GT3RS-Boss302-Cayman R-1M-Evora S






    Motor Trend setup an amazing line up of cars for an all out king of the 1/4 mile drag race at an airstrip. The Nissan GT-R with itís 530HP V6 Twin Turbo and superb all wheel drive launch control beat them all to the finish.
    Nissan GT-R: 11.2 @ 121.8 MPH
    Ferrari 458 Italia: 11.3 @ 125.6 MPH
    Audi R8 GT: 11.5 @ 125.1 MPH
    Mercedes SLS AMG: 11.7 @ 124.1 MPH
    Lexus LFA: 11.9 @ 123.7 MPH
    Chevrolet Corvette Z06/Z07: 11.9 @ 122.5 MPH
    Porsche 911 GT3 RS: 11.9 @ 120.7 MPH
    Ford Mustang BOSS 302 Laguna Seca: 12.4 @ 115 MPH
    Porsche Cayman R: 12.7 @ 111 MPH
    BMW 1 Series M: 12.8 @ 110.2 MPH
    Lotus Evora S: 12.9 @109.9 MPH

    No race is perfect, but we would have liked to have seen Porsche represented by the 911 Turbo S and Chevrolet with the ZR1. While the Nissan GT-R did win, itís lucky the race didnít go any further as it would have been passed on by some of the lighter and more powerful cars.
    Current:
    14 Viper TA
    Wsir - 1:28:9
    Buttonwillow C13 - 1:54:1

    Pretty cool race, but if they had an airstrip rented why didnt they race half a mile or 1 mile to let other cars really flex?
    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.

    i wouldnt say it got lucky but this race def serves to its strenths (awd,dct) if it was longer or from a roll we could say well those other cars are lighter or they have more power or bigger engines. 1/4 mile has always been the bench mark so i think its still a fair measure, the new standard should be 60-130, i think thats a great measure of real world performance, to race a mile is cool and fun to watch but that comes to mostly power. in real world performance driving you probably under 130 and on almost any track if you hit 150 or so on the back straight your flying but most of the time your in the twisties under 120

    I felt the 458 was clearly stalking the GTR and over a half mile or mile that GTR falls back in places. But I was more than impressed that it jumped out and stayed there the whole run. The Z06, LFA, R8 and SLS all would swap places IMO.
