Who's the Quickest of the Quick Launchers?


All three get you off the lane faster than any supercar.

These days it's almost as interesting to spectators who gets off the line fastest as it is who crosses the finish line last. It's difficult for auto enthusiasts to really enjoy the impact of a power launch on public streets. To really experience the thrill of a powerful launch, the best place to experience this is on the track. Autocar, who are no strangers to a good launch, recently wanted to explore this a bit further by pitting an Ariel Atom V8 with a 600 hp rally cross Citroen DS3 and a BMW HP4 superbike.

All three are specially designed for such a task, but which three impressed the most?
