The Ferrari F8 Tributo faces the McLaren 720S in a drag race!
Two European supercars face each other
The McLaren 720S performs well in drag racing. Indeed, it manages to outrun a number of competitors except for the explosive Porsche 911 Turbo S. Today, however, Ferrari intends to put an end to the reign of the English supercar with its recent F8 Tributo, replacing the 488.
With its logically improved technology compared to the 488, the F8 Tributo should compete on equal grounds with the 720S. Under its bonnet is a 3.9-litre V8 developing 720 PS and 770 Nm of torque. The Italian car sends its power to the rear wheels via a seven-speed automatic transmission.
Facing it, the McLaren 720S puts forward a fairly similar technical specification. It has a 4.0-litre V8 producing 720 PS and 770 Nm of torque. The English supercar is rear-wheel drive and again has a seven-speed automatic transmission. There is no difference so far!
It's only on the scales that the McLaren starts with a slight advantage. It indeed weighs 1,424 kg while the Ferrari weighs 1,435 kg. Will this 11 kg difference be enough to make the difference on the track?
