Every year, Motor Trend brings the latest bunch of performance cars for a run down an airstrip to see which one is the fastest to the quarter-mile. The eight edition of the “World’s Greatest Drag Race” as the publication calls it, was held at the Vandenberg Airforce Base in California.
This year’s race included 12 competitors ranging from the latest McLaren Super Series model to an Alfa Romeo SUV. The list of cars that competed this year include -- the McLaren 720S, Porsche 911 GT2 RS, Lamborghini Huracan Performante, Chevrolet Corvette ZR1, BMW M5, Aston Martin Vantage, Audi TT RS, Dodge Challenger RT Scat Pack 1320, Ford Mustang GT, Kia Stinger GT, Honda Civic Type-R and the Alfa Romeo Stelvio Q4 Quadrifoglio -- the first SUV ever to compete in the ‘World’s Greatest Drag Race’.
We won’t spoil the fun by revealing the winner but if you are one of the regular visitors to this website, you likely have a pretty good idea which car is going to win.
