Can a tuned streetcar beat a Formula 1 car in a drag race? To find out, carwow has put together a dream list of some of the most capable four-wheelers on the planet. For starters, the trams are set to take part in the 2011 F1 Championship winner Red Bull RB7, driven by F1 driver David Coulthard. To challenge this legendary racing car, a twin-turbo Lamborghini Huracan and a built Nissan GTR were on hand. Which of these ridiculous machines is the fastest? Let’s find out.
The Red Bull RB7 Formula 1 car is one of the most successful F1 cars ever built. Led by Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber, the RB7 dominated the grid winning 12 of 19 races and securing 18 of 19 possible pole positions in qualifying. The 2011 season was an opportunity for Sebastian Vettel to defend his world title for the 2010 season and prove that he was one of the best F1 drivers to ever take to the track. Now the RB7 is on a drag track ready to take on a Lamborghini and Nissan in a straight line.
At first glance, you can tell it’s not your average Lamborghini Huracan. All of the rear trim panel is gone so viewers can see the custom twin-turbo setup that propels the Huracan’s 5.2-liter V10 to 1,200 horsepower. Pair that nuclear engine with the Huracan’s all-wheel drive system and you’ve got a road cruise missile.
To challenge the Huracan and F1, this Nissan GTR has its work cut out for it. This Nissan GTR may look original, but it is far from a normal GTR. This particular Nissan sports a fully built engine that is pushed to 4.1 liters and produces 1,300 horsepower.
