How great is this line-up?!

We've got Mat in the Ferrari 296 GTB, and he will go head-to-head against a McLaren 765 LT & a GT2 RS!

So let's see how these extraordinary supercars compare to each other. Beginning with the Ferrari, it's powered by a 3-litre twin-turbo V6 coupled with an electric motor which combines to produce 830hp and 740Nm of torque. This power is sent out to the rear wheels just, and the dry weight of the is 1,570 kg. If you were aiming to get one of these heroic hybrids, it would cost you around ₤ 242,000.

Next up we have the McLaren. It can be found in at a greater cost than the Ferrari, with the cost starting from ₤ 280,000! Regardless of this, it's actually down on power, with its 4-litre twin-turbo V8 producing (you thought it …) 765hp! It likewise puts down 800Nm, and this power is sent out to the rear wheels. It's the lightest vehicle here, though, tipping the scales at 1,339 kg.

Then finally we have the Porsche. It's packing a 3.8-litre twin-turbo flat-six that can provide 700hp and 750Nm to the rear wheels. It weighs in at 1,470 kg, and when new it cost around ₤ 207,000. But if you were seeking to buy one today, anticipate to easily pay ₤ 300,000+!

So how will this one play out – will the Ferrari's power move it to triumph? Or could the McLaren or Porsche nab it? There's only one method to discover … LET'S RACE!

      991 gen Porsche does not have soft limiter – it was the last hurray era of revving to 9,000 rpm

      No 911 before the 992 had a soft limiter

      @Pigeon Poo yep. Add also NASCAR GARAGE 56 car into this drag race.

      Yea there’s a car that breaks down when they bring modified cars, iv never seen a factory car break down 4 times in a video on this channel.

    4. zix zix zix Avatar
      zix zix zix

      @Citrus It didn’t break down 4 times; the hybrid system malfunctioned and they kept using the car without repairing it (that would require a visit to the dealer). So, technically, it broke down once and they were lucky the car actually kept going.

      Wait tilll Tesla fanboys appear and said a 4door practical sedan S-Plaid that cost less can easily beat all three cars in this race 🥴🥴

      It’s like the M3 after a little tuning, which was recently. And which cost a fraction of the price of any of these cars.

    A turbo S would have been very close with the other two. Would’ve been fun to see

      The Turbo probably would have won, because I remember it did 10 seconds flat..

      @kalel Wilson in the most recent one it did a 10.3

  7. venom999333 Avatar

    🤔 I’d say it would be time for these 3 cars to do some track times. Hot lap anyone? 🔥

    1. Mirko Marjanovic Avatar
      Mirko Marjanovic

      It would probably be gt2rs. It’s the second fastest car at nurburgring after black series (I don’t count manthey version). BUT, Ferraris and McLarens aren’t really getting tested at nurburgring for best lap times. People have said that mclarens (outside of let’s say p1 and gt3 cars) aren’t that good at handling at this class, like 720s isn’t at top level on a track, but everybody praises Ferraris on a track. I think the 296 could give the Porsche a very hard time.

    Yianni’s energy alone adds like a 100hp more to the car in which he is 😂😂😂

      I promise you, bro. Plus another 50 more horse power by leaning forward 😂

      @Igor Strzalkowski what about minus 200kgs for Go Go Go?

    The LT is very impressive in my opinion, less power than the Ferrari which has an additional hybrid train which gives it a better launch in regards to acceleration yet they’re almost neck to neck, that’s impressive

    1. Tommaso Capuzzo Avatar
      Tommaso Capuzzo

      But the 296 gtb has only a 3.0 V6 twin turbo.

      Actually not….the 765LT dyno’s at over 850hp with many calling it the 865LT as a running joke….couple that with being well over 300kg’s lighter with active aero then it changes the complexion a bit😉

    3. Miran E. Avatar

      Not less power 765lt has like 820-850hp on a dyno

      after launch the two were similar, so Ferrari extra spec sheet 65 horsepower offset 300kgs of extra weight it carries. Id say if the mc makes more power then so does the Ferrari.

    5. Citrus Avatar

      The ferrari is 100% making 900hp, you should see it racing against sf90. Ferrari took a page out of Mclarens book with the lying about hp figures. i still think the Mclaren is the standout performer here, just like the 720s use to be. heavily aero’d and short geared and its still a bullet train.

    Little advice for the videos, when it comes to the break test why not have a drone hover above the vehicles once they stop and have a line to see who stopped where rather than getting out of the car

    1. minionz Avatar

      Get film at an active airport/runway so they probably don’t have the permission to do so

    2. James Blade Avatar
      James Blade

      @minionz at that point just have a go pro at the end of the runway or a camera on the side so the others can review the footage and tell the drivers who won

    3. minionz Avatar

      @James Blade that have a camera on the side but thw problem with braking is u never know where will the car’s’ stop unlike the 1/2 mile or the 1/4 Mile dats why the have camera crew with physical cameras and matt just gets out and checks them himself while showing us the angles via the camera

    4. James Blade Avatar
      James Blade

      @minionz correct but you could use the camera as a line, if the vehicle is close to it you measure the distance from the camera to the car, the further back or forward the car is you either lose or win

    Love that Yanni always has that confused look at the beginning 2:06, not knowing which car he’s in, like he’s been teleported into the car.

    I love the trio ❤️ And Daniel just looks happy tagging along with Yanny and Mat which make me happy too


    It is astonishng how fast the 765LT is. The 296 beat the SF90 from a roll in another video, and for the 765 to stay with, and maybe even pull up top on the 296 is just crazy.

    You must do this race again when the Ferrari is sorted. It was truly amazing to see it competing with the 765 and winning. I’m sure once it’s sorted it might be a even bigger win for the Ferrari

      @Joonatan Nurminen 992 turbo S is a 10sec car mate on a good day it will win against those

    I don’t know if I’m the only one that feels that way, but the brake tests are always more interesting to me cause if a car has a lot of power but no brakes you’re less likey to use that power unless you know you have enough room to stop. So it basically shows which cars can make use of their power in daily use.
