The time has come for this year’s Greatest Drag Race from Motor Trend, and as usual it includes 2018’s hottest metal, a dozen cheerful drivers and a really long runway.
MT returned to the Vandenberg Air Force Base in order to put their three-mile-long runway into good use. And by good use we mean a pretty crazy quarter-mile drag race.
This year’s contenders are the McLaren 720S, Porsche 911 GT2 RS, Dodge Challenger RT Scat Pack 1320, Honda Civic Type R, Lamborghini Huracán Performante, BMW M5, Ford Mustang GT Performance Pack Level 2, Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio, Kia Stinger GT, Audi TT RS, Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 and the Aston Martin Vantage. A Mazda MX-5 Club was also present, but it didn’t participate for rather obvious reasons.
Just by looking the list with the contenders, it’s pretty obvious that first place will be decided between the McLaren, the Porsche and the Lamborghini – with the Corvette ZR1 lurking in the background.
This year’s race also includes an SUV in the face of the Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio, which -Mild Spoiler Alert!- did a pretty impressive job against its opponents. The BMW M5 also requires attention, thanks to its trick all-wheel drive system and 600 horsepower.
Which one is the winner of the World’s Greatest Drag Race this year? Let’s find out, shall we?
