Flashback Friday: Revisiting The Original World’s Greatest Drag Race
We finished our Best Driver’s Car program last year with the World’s Greatest Drag Race. Now with more than 8 million views, the video showed our epic drag race comparing 11 of 2011′s best supercars, sports cars, and muscle cars against one another. Just how epic was this drag race? Among the 11 cars were 82 cylinders, more than 5000 horsepower, 4000 lb-ft of torque, and a price tag of more than $1.5 million. In honor of Best Driver’s Car Week kicking off on Monday, August 20, we wanted to feature the original World’s Greatest Drag Race one more time.
The contenders for last year’s Best Driver’s Car were just as varied as this year’s. The overall winner from our week-long test was the Ferrari 458 Italia, followed by the Nissan GT-R, and Porsche 911 GT3 RS, Porsche Cayman R, Ford Mustang Boss 302 Laguna Seca, Chevrolet Corvette Z06, Audi R8 GT, Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG, Lexus LFA, BMW 1 Series M Coupe, and the Lotus Evora S.
As you might expect, the finishing order in the drag race was a bit different. Check out last year’s World’s Greatest Drag Race video below, and remember to tune in next week for Best Driver’s Car Week, capped off by the World’s Greatest Drag Race Part 2 on Friday. What cars do you think will finish the drag race on the podium this year?
