Ferrari 488 GTB measured against McLaren 720S on drag strip

A battle of fairly evenly matched turbo V8 supercars

McLaren 720S has been wiping the floor with all kinds of fast cars on the drag strip ever since it was launched, so can the less powerful and slightly heavier Ferrari 488 GTB do it?

McLaren quotes its 720S as being able to sprint to 100 km/h in a rather ridiculous 2.6 seconds, while Ferrari can do it in a only marginally less ridiculous claimed 2.8 seconds. From naught to higher speeds, 720S can hit 200 km/h in 7.1 seconds, while the 488 needs 8.1 seconds.

How does this translate on a drag strip with the two cars side by side? Well, since you’ve seen the McLaren beating motors much more powerful than itself and the Ferrari is less powerful and slower on paper, we’ll let you anticipate what the end result of the race in the video below will be.
