The Ferrari SF90 is one of the fastest production cars currently on the market. The Bugatti Chiron is one of the most powerful. And the LaFerrari is an extremely rare exotic car that needs no introduction. Seeing all three in one place is pretty special, but seeing them running? It is a very special treat.
And that’s exactly what we get in this video of DragTimes. The action takes place on a private drag strip, and to make sure you get the hang of it, the less powerful car here has 950 horsepower. That would be the LaFerrari, wielding its hybrid powertrain consisting of a 6.3-liter V12 engine, a single electric motor and a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission to send all that power to the rear wheels.
His main competitor for this video is also a Ferrari, specifically the SF90 Stradale. It’s also a hybrid, but as you’re no doubt aware, it has three electric motors running off a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8. Power is slightly higher than the LaFerrari at 986bhp, and it’s sent to all four wheels via an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission. And yes, there is also a 1,500 horsepower Bugatti Chiron that makes an appearance at the end of the video.

The bulk of the action, however, is Ferrari v Ferrari. When stationary, the LaFerrari has no chance against the all-wheel-drive SF90. He takes an early lead and stays there, but losing in a LaFerrari is still better than winning in just about anything else. The remaining races all start from a modest turnover, and that’s where the LaFerrari shines. He wins two melee battles, with the SF90 picking up a win in round four. Tied at two wins apiece, a fifth roll race is staged and the LaFerrari ends the day with the overall victory.
But that’s not the end of the racing action. The SF90 launches into an all-wheel-drive, standing-start showdown with a Bugatti Chiron. These two cars alone have close to 2,500 horsepower combined and both drivers get equal launches. Can the Ferrari hold up despite a big power disadvantage? We’ll leave that result to the video to reveal.
