McLaren Senna v 1200hp Lexus: DRAG RACE

Thank you to his royal highness for letting us utilize his automobiles:

Thanks to for joining us!
Thanks to & for helping to set up this race!

Who's prepared for an impressive drag race!

For the very first time ever, Mat has actually got his hands on a Senna! And he's about to go head-to-head with … A ?!

Well trust us, this is no normal … it's a RC F Drift Automobile!

So let's take a closer take a look at how these 2 cars and trucks compare. Beginning with the Lexus, it might be based upon an RC F, however the only thing left from the original vehicle is basically the Lexus badges at the front and rear! It's powered by a 2JZ engine that can produce an eye-watering 1,200 hp and 1,000 Nm of torque, and it's super light, weighing in at just 1,250 kg!

Then along with it we have Mat in the . The Senna is powered by a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 that can put down an incredible 800hp and 800Nm! In terms of weight, it can be found in at 1,309 kg.

So the Lexus has more power AND it weighs less – but when you consider it's designed to be flung around corners at speed, does it actually stand a chance entering a straight line? There's only one method to find out … LET'S RACE!

      Matt’s reaction: Hysteria

      Dude, you’re overplaying it, and it looks like a cheap comedy

    Love how his brakes went out at like 140 mph and he just laughs it off, what a maniac. Proper driver to handle that beast of a Lexus

      Faked the brake issue. Handbrake worked fine therefore the back brakes were fine. End of

      @Chuck Norris It’s also “true” that it is very difficult to put over one thousand horsepower down on an unprepared drag surface with a car that lacks traction control and a slick automatic gearbox. It is also difficult to stop in a straight line when traveling at over 140 mph with no ABS. The car is very clearly set up for drifting, notice the insane front camber which in turn makes it VERY difficult to keep straight. I’m guessing you’re a 6x drift champion somewhere? I thought so.

    4:26 – Man was doing a burnout for nearly the entire quarter mile! Talk about traction control…

      Agree. It is as amazing as it actually gets.

    2. GRIFFINZXTT Avatar

      Also, those tires are good for drift, not for keeping the car straight, I want the car with tires that grip for the next race lol

    Dude has balls to do a brake test right after his brakes went out. And that save was glorious to say the least.

    1. Jack Quick Avatar
      Jack Quick

      Right! Also The moment he knew the brakes were not stopping the car he just ripped it around with no fear. Dumped almost all of his speed. If he’d waited another .5 seconds it would have ended with a flipping and rolling car. Balls + Skill. Gotta love it!

      Jokes aside it’s AWESOME that they use this format vs. what Hoonigan does with the random drop where you never get an even start.

    Stopping that Lexus when his breaks failed is the best thing I’ve seen so far on these drag races

    I love how Matt never tells em that it’s as soon as the hands go down rather than waiting it’s all the way down than again he is the drag race king with 160 wins under his belt 😂

      @Yousef Hussain Yea it did, normally a drift car wouldn’t have the slightest of traction but he managed to get some sort of traction on the straight line.
