A drag race between two rare and expensive supercars, the Lexus LFA and the Porsche 918 Spyder, has been recently filmed.
As more and more units of the Porsche 918 Spyder get delivered to their rightful owners, we get more and more interesting videos with them which include personal reviews, top speed tests and drag races. This is probably the example of this drag race in which the German hybrid supercar is being placed against a Lexus LFA, at the Vmax 200 Nine Eleven, hosted by Auto Vivendi, at the home of Top Ger, Dunsfold Park. We won’t be spoilers and tell you about which vehicle managed to win the race but petrol heads should know exactly on which supercar to place their bets on.
The Lexus LFA is a two-seat coupe supercar, with a front-mid engine and rear-wheel drive layout, taking its power from a 4.8 liter V10 engine, DOHC with 4-valves per cylinder, producing a total of 552 HP (412 kW) at 8,700 rpm and 480 Nm (354 lb-ft) of torque, at 6,800 rpm. The 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) acceleration takes 3.7s and top speed stands at 326 km/h (203 mph). The Porsche 918 Spyder as a 4.6L V8 and two electric motors, producing a total of 887 HP (661 kW) and 1,275 Nm of torque, which is enough to allow it to reach 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 2.6 seconds and to go all the way up to 340 km/h (210 mph).
