Drag! Mercedes SLR McLaren vs. Ferrari GTC4Lusso vs. Aston Martin DBS

Another week, another drag race. This time, the folks over at CarWow line up a Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren against a Ferrari GTC4Lusso and an Aston Martin DBS Superleggera.

Produced between 2003 and 2010, the SLR McLaren employs a supercharged 5,4-litre V8 up front, sending its 460 kW to the rear axle via a five-speed automatic transmission.

The GTC4Lusso, meanwhile, uses a naturally aspirated 6,3-litre V12, delivering 507 kW to all four corners via a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox. And the rear-driven DBS Superleggera? Well, it offers 533 kW from its twin-turbo 5,2-litre V12, channelled through an eight-speed auto.

Watch the video above to see the three contenders take part in a few drag battles, a couple of races from a rolling start and a brake test…
