Drag races are very popular in Russia, and since the country doesn’t lack wealthy individuals, the cars that show up at both legal and illegal races are impressive. Take this stock Ferrari 599 GTO, for instance, that showed up at Moscow’s Unlimited 500+ 10th anniversary event and was pitted against two cars from a completely different league.
In the first duel, the 670hp Ferrari takes on a highly modified BMW X6M developing 760 hp thanks to a PP-Performance Stage 4 kit, while in the second race the Italian supercar is pitted against what is likely a non-official Nissan Juke R tuned to develop 700 hp. The Nissan is the same one from a previous video, but for some reason the owner has detuned it from 750 hp to 700 hp.
We won’t disclose the outcome of the two drag races, but we’ll tell you one of the drivers’ poor starting technique may have had some contribution to the results. Scroll down to see how the Ferrari did against the two “mutant” SUVs.
