On the internet, and YouTube more specifically, the “Drag Race” event is legion. Absolutely all sports are compared to each other and it seems that one of them stands out. This is the McLaren 720S which, thanks to its 720 hp V8, has managed to calm a bunch of sports cars.
Recently, the Englishwoman has a serious competitor coming straight from Germany. But in this article, we're going to talk about its second competitor, also equipped with a V8, and which comes straight from Maranello. The Ferrari F8 Tributo is recent, it was presented last year. For those who don't know, the F8 Tributo is the descendant and successor of the Ferrari 488 GTB.
Its power has been increased to 720 hp for 770 Nm of torque. Officially, it cuts the 0 to 100 km / h in 2.9 seconds and spins at a maximum speed of 340 km / h. On paper, it is a serious rival to the McLaren, but as you will see in the video, in both attempts the Ferrari apparently fell on a bone.
However, the McLaren 720S also develops 720 hp and accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in 2.9 seconds. Normally, both supercars should cross the finish line at the same time. But this is not the case … It should be noted that the Woking supercar is very slightly less heavy than its competitor from Maranello. With a dry weight of only 1283 kg, the McLaren 720S weighs only 47 kg less than the Ferrari (1330 kg dry). Do these few pounds less justify the difference between the two sports?
