Porsche Hypercar v Red Bull Rallycross: DRAG RACE

Thanks to everybody who helped arrange this drag race:
918 Spyder: @wam_barn
: @RedBullMotorsports
– WRX:

It's time for the almighty 918 Spyder to face off versus a WRX Rallycross automobile!

Let's see how these 2 mighty devices compare. Starting with the Porsche, it's powered by a 4.6-litre naturally-aspirated V8, combined with two electrical motors, which combined produce an amazing 887hp and 1,280 Nm of torque! It's relatively heavy though, tipping the scales at 1,674 kg, and if you're wanting to pick up one of these in 2023, it'll set you back a cool โ‚ค 1,300,000!!

Then we have the WRX rallycross cars and truck. It's based upon a Peugeot 208 rally automobile, and it's powered by a 2-litre turbocharged engine that can produce 620hp. And as you 'd expect, all this power is sent out to all 4 wheels.

So the WRX will be lightning-fast off the line, however will it be able to take down the 918 over the quarter-mile? There's just one way to learn … LET'S RACE!

    Iโ€™m convinced they usually script the second race to give the slower car a win so that they do a best 2/3 cause ainโ€™t no way Matt was slacking on the line like that on the second drag race only for him to have the wildest launch on the next one.

      Ikr? Matt was busy doing his taxes while the Red Bull pulled away from the line.

      Sure, especially when the cars are somewhat unevenly matched based on hp

    The acceleration off the line from the Rallycross car is nuts – gets ahead so well early on that it almost makes up for its total lack of gearing for the 1/4 mile!

    Damn those FIA regs allowing that restricted 2.0 engine to ‘only’ make 620hp.๐Ÿ˜ƒ

    I couldn’t help but imagine ken block drifting around that porsche 1 inch away from the bumpers if you told him to be careful ๐Ÿ˜‚
    Timmy is a great racer though, the way rally cross cars take off is hard to believe ๐Ÿ‘Œ

      Imagine Dia Kurosawa also drifts that 918 0.6cm away tho.

    Man those Rally Cars are proper hypercar quick! And thanks to carwow, we now actually have a proper idea just how racing machines compare with road legal hypercars.

    I think you should include a standard car in all drag races for comparison just to see how bonkers fast some of these cars are and not only compared to each-other.
    Someting like a VW Golf TDI or even a GTI (or similar very popular car)

    1. Purwanti Allan Avatar
      Purwanti Allan

      No doubt. Add also Audi R18 TDI from Setsuna Yuki to this drag race list.
