The World's Greatest Drag Race Is Better Than Ever

Drag Race

We know which car won best driver's car, but which is the fastest in a straight line?

MotorTrend's Best Driver's Car Competition is in the books and the McLaren 570S has been crowned the winner. The McLaren beat out the last year's winner, the Mercedes-AMG GT S, as well as the Jaguar F-Type SVR, Aston Martin V12 Vantage S, Porsche 911 Carrera S, Audi R8 V10 Plus, Acura NSX, Chevy Camaro 1LE, Nissan GTR, BMW M4 GTS, Shelby GT 350R, and the Dodge Viper ACR. However, the Viper ACR was the fastest car around Laguna Seca with an insane lap time of 1:31.58. But driving isn't about top speeds.

MotorTrend likes to find out how fast each car is around the track, even if it doesn't necessarily determine the winner. With that in mind, the Best Driver's Car Competition also includes a completely pointless, but extremely awesome drag race.

This is the sixth time that MotorTrend has run what it calls "The World's Greatest Drag Race." Former winners include the Nissan GT-R, Porsche 991 Turbo, and Lamborghini Aventador. This year, MotorTrend predicted that the Acura NSX would monster the competition with its AWD and hybrid power. We disagreed and thought that either the Audi R8 or McLaren 570S would probably win. So were we right? Just for fun, a Charger Hellcat is added to the mix to see how it fairs. Which car will win the World's Greatest Drag Race 6?
