Top Gear Drag Races Golf R Against 911 GTS & McLaren 675LT

The idea behind this video was to have a hot hatch take on a sports car and a supercar at the same time,


It doesn’t leave much room to imagination, does it? Nevertheless, surprise factor or not, for those who are still itching to find out just what the difference is between these three cars, here are some numbers.

The VW Golf R is anything but slow. It’s got a 2.0-liter TSI engine putting down 300 PS and 380 Nm (280 lb-ft) of torque. In a straight line, it’ll do 250 km/h (155 mph), while reaching 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.9 seconds with the DSG transmission.

Next up is what passes for a sports car nowadays, the Porsche 911 Carrera GTS, good for 430 PS, zero to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4 seconds flat and maxing out at 304 km/h (189 mph).

Of course, even the Porsche pales in comparison to the McLaren 675LT, which is nearly as high as one can go before stepping to a hypercar like the P1.

The 675LT will max out at 330 km/h (205 mph) and hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.9 seconds. Then again, that’s what 675 PS and 700 Nm (516 lb-ft) of torque will do for you.
