If you start scrolling through the technical data sheets for the supercars currently on the market, you’ll immediately notice how hugely different they can be in some cases. just think of Ferrari SF90 Stradale, the Cavallino superconducting hybrid, which, thanks to the combination of eight cylinders and three electric motors, is able to deliver unique performance. Driver Daniel Abt thought of putting it to the test, and put a Cavallino race car in front of one of them McLaren 765LT, a car that delivers equally unique performance, but on paper it is hardly able to oppose the Italian car manufacturer’s style power. However, sometimes the stats can be flipped, and so the professional driver staged three races, a drag race challenge to scientifically prove which one is the best.
As we expected, there should be no history on paper: powering the Ferrari SF90 Stradale is a 4.0-liter turbocharged V8 with three electric motors with An electrified powertrain producing 1,000 horsepower of total power. The McLaren 765LT, for its part, features a 4.0-liter V8 biturbo engine that produces “only” 765 horsepower. However, in this case, a series of bench tests showed that the eight-cylinder Woking could perform better and that the value declared by the British brand is very conservative. Ferrari also has all-wheel drive while McLaren has a rear-wheel drive configuration.
Features the first of the three races Error starting abt This prevented the SF90 Stradale from being clearly separated from the 765LT. McLaren easily won the challenge, reaching 100 km/h from a standstill in 3.56 seconds and completing the quarter mile in 10.63 seconds, compared to a 0-100 km/h time of 4.0 seconds. quarter mile. Understanding the error was a no-brainer for the driver who burned 0-100 in 2.8sec to close the quarter-mile in 9.95sec. In the third and final race, Ferrari won again, improving its performance with 0-100 in just 2.48 seconds and a quarter mile in 9.67 seconds.
