700hp Supra v 840kg RX-7 v Porsche 911: DRAG RACE

Thanks to everyone who supplied us vehicles for this drag race:
– Toyota :

What's quicker in a drag race – a Mk4 with ₤ 40k worth of mods contributed to it, or a from 1983 that's been definitely stripped out and is now used as a time attack vehicle?

Well, it's time to learn!

So let's see how these 2 compare. Beginning with the Supra, the initial 3-litre straight-six twin-turbo has had one of the turbos got rid of, while the initial automated gearbox has been swapped for an 8-speed ZF transmission from a BMW 530d. It's also fitted with a transbrake that'll assist to build up boost and propel it off the line.

All of this implies the Supra can produce an amazing 700hp and 780Nm of torque. It suggestions the scales at around 1,500 kg, and to purchase this exact car would cost around ₤ 80,000 – ₤ 40k for the base cars and truck, and ₤ 40k for the mods.

Then we have the RX-7, which has had many mods used to it that it's barely even an RX-7 any longer! Under the bonnet you'll discover a 2-litre 4 cylinder from the original Civic Type R which has also had a turbo contributed to it, and it's also fitted with a manual gearbox from a BMW 330d.

Provided it's a time attack vehicle, it has actually been definitely removed and included with tonnes of aero, and it now suggestions the scales at simply 840kg!

But there's also a special visitor contender to handle both of these automobiles – a 911 Carrera T! It's fitted with the basic 3-litre turbocharged flat-six, and this can produce 385hp and 450Nm of torque. It weighs in at 1,470 kg, but the question is, will the power-to-weight ratio aid it propel itself to triumph?

There's just one method to discover for sure … LET'S RACE!

    That rx7 doesn’t have a wing, that’s a WANG

    That time attack RX7 looks like an absolute weapon, but I’m not sure it’s built for drag racing! Also what’s with the BMW transmissions? Are they bulletproof or something?

      They are easy to adapt to the car

    2. Admonitor Avatar

      Not really bulletproof but are easily mounted to those engine, plus those 3L diesel gearboxes can handle a lof of torque.

      Not really BMW but ZF. They make some of the best transmissions in the world.

      ZF trans know how to manage the output from the engine for the best performance you need and they both use the diesel trans to manage a huge torque from the engine

      Wish the Supra also have engine swap from Eli Ayase’s Nissan R92CP tho.

      It’s just uk supras, us ones are a different thing

    3. IMPORT TUNER Avatar

      Yes it works good. But its lower fun, because the driver have nothing to do. Supra with an big turbo, only manual 4 me

    4. B Zilla Avatar

      ​@IMPORT TUNERit’s all good and well running a manual. But no manual Supra is going to beat an auto dragster and that’s just facts. Most top dragsters run 3 speed auto’s.

    5. Corvolet5 Avatar

      Personally 11.6 seconds for 700 hp isn’t crazy at all when the current M4 Competition with RWD does numbers like these while weighing a lot more

    I was expecting Sam is going to whip out the 911 turbo s instead of The 911 Carrea T . Anyways, the brake test is probably expected LOL .

      911 Carrera T still have some lacks compared to Boxster S and 3400S.

    As fun as manuals are, this really shows the auto advantage in racing.

    1. Skylined Avatar

      No, it shows the disadvantage of having a car set up for fast laps with half the horsepower of what you’re up against.

      That said, the Supra is an incredible bit of kit.

      ​@Skylinedthe Supra also has engine swap from the Red Bull RB14 on THE CREW 3 MOTORFEST.

    That Supra !! What an amazing build, and that BMW gearbox tho 🔥 but Sam, he could have atleast brought the Carrera 4S for the drag race, he might stood a chance.. overall all the cars were amazing 👏🏻👏🏻 Mat and CARWOW just getting more awesome day by day..

      rx7 was nicer imo

    It’s so funny when Mat asked Sam, “when did you realise the Mazda came without ABS?” 😂😂

  20. DPCcars Avatar

    That Supra with the ZF 8-speed is a game changer; it’s incredible to see it perform at this level. 💪 And while I love the raw power of that time attack RX7, drag racing might not be its forte. 😅 By the way, the BMW transmissions being used here—definitely speaks to their durability in high-performance situations, doesn’t it? And as much as I’m a fan of manual gearboxes, there’s no denying that autos have the upper hand in racing scenarios. 🏁
