In recent years, the McLaren 720S has been the fastest supercar on the market, but it has a new competitor in the form of the Ferrari F8 Tributo. Which accelerates the fastest? Video response!
The 720S and F8 Tributo featured today are completely original. They belong to Brooks of the DragTimes YouTube channel. Here they are, competing for a drag race. In the first race, the Ferrari driver had a much better start and maintained his lead over the McLaren. Finally, the F8 Tributo crossed the line in 10.45 seconds at 218 km / h just ahead of the McLaren 720S which took 10.47 seconds to cross the line at 223 km / h.
In the second race, the two sprinters got off to a very good start but it was finally the 720S that took the lead in front of its Italian rival. However, once the 400 meters have been shot down, the F8 Tributo is still ahead. But the difference is tiny!
Recall that the Ferrari F8 Tributo is powered by a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 that develops 720 horsepower and 770 Nm of torque. Everything is sent directly to the rear wheels via an automatic transmission with double clutch, which allows him to knock down the 0 to 100 in 2.9 seconds.
On the other side, the McLaren 720S also hides a twin-turbo V8 under its hood, but 4.0 liters this time. It also develops 720 horsepower and 770 Nm of torque, power that it also transmits only to the rear wheels. This is perhaps enough to explain the results so close between the two cars. Enough talk, we'll let you watch for yourself!
