What do you get when you line up a Lamborghini Aventador, a McLaren MP4-12C and a Nissan GT-R next to each other? The world's greatest and loudest drag race, that's what!
An American motoring magazine did exactly that, and more, when they lined up the above mentioned three cars and six others at the disused El Torro Marine Corps airstrip in California for a race.
The reason? To see which was the best driver's car for 2012 and for the purpose of this video, the fastest over a quarter mile (that's 400m in metric measurement).
The total value of the nine cars participating in the race came to $1.18-million (or about R10-million) and a total of 4700 horsepower. That's a lot of horses.
The cars involved in the race were:
2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, 2013 Ford Shelby GT500, 2012 Jaguar XKR-S, 2011 Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4, 2012 McLaren MP4-12C, 2013 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Black Series, 2013 Nissan GT-R Black Edition, 2012 Porsche Carrera S and the 2013 Subaru BRZ.
Enjoy the video.
