Watch Your Childhood Dream Cars Get Destroyed By A Skoda Wagon

Drag Race

Yesterday's supercars aren't as good as today's family haulers.

We live in the golden age of horsepower. It is amazing to think that you can go into a showroom, and buy a family car that would embarrass the supercars of the '70s, '80s, and '90s. To show off its newest Superb 280 Wagon, Skoda decided to film a funny commercial where a group of guys are talking about which sports cars would win in a drag race. They bring up sports cars like the 1985 Porsche 911 Carrera, 1992 Honda NSX-R, 1976 Ferrari 308 GTB, and the 1980 Lotus Esprit Turbo. Then, one guy brings up the Skoda.

With a 278 hp 2.0-liter four-cylinder, the Superb can hit 60 mph in 5.8 seconds. Compared to all of the supercars, the Skoda actually has the most power (tied with the NSX). With Skoda pondering a launch in the US, it is fun to see how good one of its cars really is.
