The popularity of drag racing has reached an all time high in recent years where almost all Youtube online channel or publication organizes quarter-mile competitions. There are people like Accelerator chamber, who have a good history of doing exciting drag races and their latest installment once again does not disappoint. It’s a battle of three very different all-wheel-drive vehicles.
Let’s see what we have on the starting line for today’s drag race. Representing pure American muscle power, the Shelby F-150 Super Snake with its monstrous 5.0-liter supercharged V8 engine. It delivers around 775 horsepower (570 kilowatts) and is probably the heaviest of the trio, although there is no information regarding its weight. The truck is priced at $114,030 in the United States.
The pride of Italy is defended by the Lamborghini Urus with its 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8. This mill is good for 650 hp (478 kW) and 627 lb-ft (850 Newton-meters) of torque. The super SUV weighs 4,844 pounds (2,197 kilograms) and costs more than double the price of the Super Snake at $229,495.
Last but not least, there is an electric vehicle in the mix. The Rivian R1S features a four-motor electric powertrain with all-wheel-drive capability and an output of 845 hp (621 kW) and 908 lb-ft (1,231 Nm) of instant torque. It’s quite heavy at around 7,000 pounds (3,175 kg), but is the most affordable of the three contenders at $92,000 in the US.
As you can see by the numbers, these are three very capable and powerful machines, all three powered by four wheels. You will probably be surprised to see that one of the vehicles is significantly slower than the other two, although this is relative since it is not slow in general. See which one takes the win in the video at the top of this page.
