Can A 800 HP Ferrari F12 Beat The McLaren 720S In A Straight Line?

Despite the McLaren 720S proving to be almost unbeatable when it comes to drag races, there often is no substitute for power, and this slightly modded Ferrari F12berlinetta has plenty of it.

This face-off took place in Florida at a recent wannaGOFAST event, and the two cars raced over a distance of half a mile, though their 1/4 mile performance was also taken into account.

In stock form, the F12 has 741 PS and 690 Nm (509 lb-ft) of torque, but this one ups the ante with roughly another 60 horses, which we guess should help it improve on its already impressive zero to 100 km/h (62 mph) acceleration time of 3.1 seconds. It will also max out at 340 km/h (211 mph)k, so at least on paper, the 720S should have its work cut out, especially since this race takes place over half a mile.

Meanwhile, McLaren could be on the conservative side when it states that the 720S has “just” 720 horses. Still, since we don’t want to give anything away, we’ll stop comparing the two right now.

The winner of the race eventually covered the 1/2 mile while doing 168.5 mph (271 km/h), which is very impressive indeed. Who was it? Watch the video and thou shall find out.

    • Infinite1

      I was right, McLaren for the win

    Who cares how fast that goofy looking McLaren is? The Ferrari is fast enough and more importantly, sounds and looks leagues better. It has personality and offers drama that the cold and clinical McLaren could only dream of. Don’t believe me? Watch what happens to both cars resale values and which remains the more desirable.
