DRAG RACE: Lamborghini SVJ v McLaren 720 v 911 Turbo S

The Big Guns Go Head to Head

“Supercar drag races don’t get much better than this! We’ve brought together a Lamborghini Aventador SVJ, a Porsche 911 Turbo S & a McLaren 720S to go head-to-head over the quarter-mile! So let’s check out the stats. Starting with the ever-reliable Porsche, it’s powered by a 3.8-litre twin-turbo flat-six that can put down 650hp & 800Nm of torque. It’s equipped with all wheel drive and tips the scales at 1,640kg. As for the SVJ, it’s lighter than the Porsche, at 1,525kg. It’s also up on power, with a 6.5-litre V12 that’s good for 770hp and 690Nm! But will it launch as well as the Porsche? Then finally we have the lightest car in the line-up, the McLaren 720S. It only weighs in at 1,420kg, and it’s packing a 4-litre twin-turbo V8 that can put down an amazing 720hp & 770Nm! It’s got one key weakness though – it’s only equipped with RWD!
