A drag race between the Ferrari 458 Italia and the Suzuki Hayabusa has been caught on camera recently and we have to admit that it is pretty surprising.
Suzuki Hayabusa versus powerful cars is something which was usual a few years ago so when spotting a clip in which the iconic motorcycle goes up against a Ferrari 458 Italia in a drag race just had to be shared. The video posted below has been shot at what seems to be an airfield and it is proving once again that the Hayabusa isn’t good for the scrap yard just yet.

The Suzuki Hayabusa, or the GSX1300R, is a sport bike produced since 1999 and it was the world’s fastest production motorcycle, achieving a top speed of 312 km/h (194 mph). The second generation has been introduced in 2008 and it is powered by a 1.4L 4-stroke inline cylinder, DOHC, 16-valve engine, with 197 HP (147 kW). The Ferrari 458 on the other hand is a rear mid-engine and rear-wheel drive Italian supercar which has been around since 2009. The model is packing a 4.5 liter V8 engine under its hood, with 562 HP (419 kW) and 540 Nm (398 lb-ft) of torque. The unit is connected to a 7-sped dual clutch transmission allowing it to reach a top speed of 325 km/h (202 mph) and 100 km/h (62 mph) from a standstill in 3.4s. The 458 has been recently replaced by the 488 GTB.
