Ferrari F40 v Bugatti EB110: DRAG RACE

Thanks to everybody for assisting to establish this drag race:
: @PetersenMuseum
– Ferrari :


We have actually got the famous , and it will go head-to-head versus the !

So let's see how these two legends compare. Starting with the Bugatti, it was originally released in 1994, and it's powered by a 3.5-litre quad-turbo V12 that can produce 560hp and 610Nm of torque. This power is sent out to all four wheels by means of a 6-speed handbook transmission, and it suggestions the scales at 1,690 kg. When it was first launched it cost ₤ 285,000, but if you're looking to choose one up now you can anticipate to spend a cool ₤ 1,500,000!

The we have the Ferrari F40. It was first launched in 1991, and it's powered by a 2.9-litre twin-turbo V8 that can put down 480hp and 580Nm. All of this power is sent out to the rear wheels only via a 5-speed handbook, but it's oh-so light, weighing in at simply 1,350 kg! It was initially more affordable than the Bugatti, at ₤ 163,000, however if you're seeking to buy one today it'll set you back a minimum of ₤ 2,000,000!

So the Ferrari is down on power, and it's just rear-wheel drive, so could the weight difference prove definitive? There's only one way to discover … LET'S RACE!

    Disappointed that the eb110 retired but the race between the viper and the f40 was surprisingly good when the launch was taken out of the equation

      Yeah agreed regarding launch since these are rare cars do not want to destroy them..
      but Even more impressive i really thought that Viper with V10 will destroy it but F40 kept closer

      ​@poplaurentiu4148 Viper is heavier, less hp, doesn’t have turbo and was 1/3 Ferraris price. I was surprised it kept up with f40

    3. Visage Avatar

      @BARONyep once that Ferrari hits boost that things shoots off

    4. FirstDragonSlayer Avatar

      @VisageHonestly, if the other dude was a bit braver with the launch, the F40 woulda shot off way faster.

      i came here for the EB110

    I wanted an EB110 or F40 so bad a few years ago, but I opted for a 1997 Civic bc of its bigger boot space

      I think you made the best decision…. think of the appreciation of the civic over the next 10 years or so 🤔

      Yup.. and ofc you can modify your civic but if you had done the same with your F40 Ferrari would give you a bigger boot space cease and desist letter lol

    Respect to the Petersen Museum for even considering this, let alone allowing it to happen. The EB110’s injury highlighted how delicate these iconic beauties are. Like asking grandfathers to run the 100 meters.

      F. That. If these cars cant run why make them?

    3. mhigham1 Avatar

      Only because it’s been sitting in a museum rotting away. Had it been driven regularly, likely would have been just fine.

      Cars shouldnt be like grandpas. If i want to pull a million dollar car it should pull. Really sad for bugatti.

    I love the F40 and EB 110 with all their turbos, but that viper really is a beast considering its naturally aspirated.

    1. greattoseerobinscore Avatar

      The viper is affordable too.

    2. Tstret Avatar

      Should it not be a beast being 8.0L? 🤣 so little HP for so much displacement.

      @Tstretit might not have a lot of HP stock, but that beast of an engine takes boost like a light snack.

      F40 is not pure cause of turbo. Ferrari always were atmospheric. Why they make F50 atmospheric? They should continue to design turbo cars. Instead they retire and abandoned F40 like traitors.

      @Tstret Viper can run lot of thousand kms whitout very expensive and often service. Both competitors are wonderfull but I’d take Viper.

    Matt is a fricking legend for getting these cars to drag race each other

    Shifting the F40 at 5500 RPM isn’t a drag race, that’s a leisure drive.

      That’s the sad thing about racing these high value classics that are rarely driven.

    2. Jackson Avatar

      Exactly. This video is just fake as it gets.

    3. Jackson Avatar

      @Real Joshua okay, but then why making videos of this nature? What’s the point? To make the viewers believe something else? That’s just straight-up dishonesty from Carwow. At least just say it as it is “Listen, we’re going to make the race close because of X.”, or “Listen, we won’t be driving the Ferrari F40 hard, because the owner does not want us to”, or “The F40 would smoke the Viper, so we are going to make it close by not pushing the F40 beyond 5500 RPM”, something like that.

      You need to consider that you overdrive the car and something happens, you will lose your house, lol.

    5. Jackson Avatar

      @Andrei Paul Anastasiu sure, we totally get that. But might as well either not making the video or simply saying it as is “Guys the F40 is not going to be ran hard, we will be running it just for showing off…” something like that.
      They make it seem as the cars go neck and neck all the way to the 1/2 mile mark, which is deceiving and in my eyes straight-up misinformation and dishonesty.

    I love these classic drag races, you guys and TFL Classics. I’d love to see a 90s ZR-1 drag, and maybe a Diablo, or Countache too.

      They should put the zr1 against these

    Hey Matt, you should also add the power to weight ratio in the stats just so we can see how close the cars are

  19. vibeslide Avatar

    Can we just appreciate Mat’s INSANE launch of that Viper?

      Jus Goody

      It looked more impressive as the driver of the F40 respected the car too much.

    2. PIPPO-10 Avatar

      ​@jusgoody Yes this was clear as it generally looked slow. He babied the car, can’t blame Jim though.

    That Museum gets all my respect for letting this happen. Wow! 👏👏
