F1 Car vs Rimac vs McMurtry: DRAG RACE

Thanks to everyone for joining us for this race:
: @redbullracing
– Rimac:

Prepare yourself for the most amazing drag race in carwow history!

We have actually got the World Championship-winning RB8 going up against the 1,914 hp and the Goodwood Hillclimb record-holding !

So let's see how these marvellous makers compare. Beginning with the Rimac, it's geared up with four electric motors that can produce an eye-watering 1,914 hp and 2,360 Nm of torque. It's packing a 120kWh battery pack, so as an outcome it's pretty heavy, tipping the scales at around 2,300 kg. And as you can picture, all of that power doesn't come cheap, with the Nevera costing around ₤ 2,000,000!

Together with it we have the McMurtry. This single-seater EV is a whole lot lighter than the Rimac, weighing in at just 1,000 kg. It's also geared up with 2 electrical motors that produce around 1,000 hp, while also loading an extraordinary fan system that helps to produce 2,000 kg of downforce! As a result, it can shoot off from the line like absolutely nothing you've ever seen before! But there's a catch – it's limited to a leading speed of only 150mph …

Then finally we have the F1 car, driven by Red Bull's reserve motorist, Liam Lawson. He's driving Sebastian Vettel's Championship-winning RB8, which is geared up with a 2.4-litre V8 that can produce 800hp. It's easily the lightest vehicle here, at around 700kg, and all power is sent out to the rear wheels just.

So it's an absolutely extraordinary line-up, but will electrical power accomplishment?! Or will the F1 automobile prove triumphant? There's just one way to discover for sure … LET'S RACE!

      Imagine the McMurtry without a limiter!!!!

      ​@Presto_001 it doesn’t have a limiter. It topped out because it was running a gearbox for Goodwood festival of speed. So it topped out in gear, not because of a limiter.

      In race 2, the McMurtry took off like a rocket – I also want to know the distance which Liam stopped in from 100mph, F1 car in the brake test was crazy

      A TT Lambo or R8, ES motor Porsche or a tuned GTR would have been so much better than that F1. It just lacks a lot of power.

    The McMurtry’s second launch was insane! These cars are absolutely crazy because they made a 9.5s 1/4 mile look pedestrian 😂

    12:15 it’s crazy how as soon as the Rimac’s wing went down, the speed shot up from 200 to 220 so fast I’ve never seen anything like it!

    1. TylernolX Avatar

      It didn’t actually shoot off, the McMurtry has hit its speed limiter, good timing though

      McMurtry was cutting the motor down to its 1st setting of the 3 settings it has so acted as a limiter basically. If you watch Henry Catchpoles vid on them you will realise what the McMurtry has done here. The qtr mile it won easily is its 3rd setting the motor and the fans had the full power for that full qtr mile. The McMurtry basically halfs the motor power and keeps both fans on or if it gets an issue with the fan on one side it shuts that down and reduces the motor power by half. Watch the previous vids on it like i said and it will make sense why it seemed to just stop like that.

    Goes to show just how amazing of a job the guys at Rimac have done to make Nevera so easy to drive and do things like these with 0 effort.

    The McMurty is insane. It’s ability to corner is even more impressive.
