Hey guys! Here is a quick tribute compilation that was inspired by my fellow gearheads online! These guys are all about straight line racing, from both a standstill and rolling starts. In my opinion rolling starts truly show the straight line acceleration prowess of each individual vehicle as it avoids fancy launch control technologies that give many AWD TECH giants (GT-R, 911 Turbo, Etc) the edge off the line.
Now as many know I am a Porschaphile, so here are a few videos side by side drag races of a few flagship 911 Variants. The premiss of these races is a rolling start anywhere from 50 KP/H to upwards of 300 KP/H. Note that many of these races involve Manual Transmission vs Sequential Automated Manuals (AKA F1 inspired gear changes) which significantly increases the acceleration times of every single modern day vehicle equipped with one. Manuals truly are obsolete when it comes to performance and efficiency. Needless to say when a manual car defeats it’s superior cousin, it’s very impressive.
Some of the notable cars included are:
Porsche 911 Turbo (997 and 991 variants)
Porsche 911 GT2 RS (997)
Porsche 911 GT3 RS
Audi R8 V8
Chevrolet Corvette Z06 (C6)
Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4
Ferrari 458 Speciale
