World’s Greatest Drag Race 2011

Motor Trend is probably one of the most popular automobile magazines around. So when they setup up a drag race, they do it right. They assembled $1.5 million in cars that they named for the 2011 Best Driver’s Car competition. They brought all of them to an abandoned Marine air base in the deserts of Orange County, California. In these 4 glorious minutes, 11 cars challenge each other in a 1/4 mile face off:

  • Audi R8 GT
  • BMW 1 M
  • Chevy Corvette Z06
  • Ferrari 458 Italia
  • Ford Mustang Boss 302
  • Lexus LFA
  • Lotus Evora S
  • Mercedes SLS AMG
  • Nissan GT-R
  • Porsche Cayman R
  • Porsche 911 GT3 RS
