The Carwow crew have put together hundreds of interesting drag race videos featuring all the best cars you can think of, and this has to be one of the coolest. It’s just the right length, shows just the right amount of action and features a very interesting trio of cars. The most fascinating thing about this drag race is that in the mix we find a road-legal car being pitted against a Formula 1 car, a testament to just how much the automotive industry has progressed. Not just that, but the car is fully electric. The other car in the mix is also fully-electric but is instead a single-seater that’s purpose-built for going as fast as the physics humans can manipulate allows, with literally tons of downforce while at a standstill. This car is also planned for production, and if the future owners are at least a little handy at the wheel the cars should be claiming track records at any track they play on. Representing the world of Formula 1 is the RB8 that won the 2012 constructor’s championship at the hands of Sebastian Vettel, and it’s packing a normally-aspirated 2.4-litre V8 capable of producing 800 hp, and while that figure is far from what the competitors are packing, this car tips the scales at a mere 800 kg resulting in an amazing power to weight ratio. There is a downside to this car though, it’s not made for a short sprint and so battles to get off the line, by the time the aero starts working it’s too late. Also, the car was piloted by Oracle Red Bull Racing’s reserve driver, Liam Lawson, and it was his first time behind the wheel of the RB8 car. Given more seat time we reckon he’d get the car to do even better.
Take a look at the YouTube video from the Carwow crew who manage to keep putting drag races together that feature some amazingly fast, rare and expensive cars. This one is mad and shows just how far cars have come when a road-legal all-electric car is so fast it can be compared to a Formula One car. Sure it's an older one, but it still counts.
