Ladies and gentlemen drag racers, we’re here to bring you the drag race involving the McLaren 12C and the Dodge Viper GTS-R. We have to warn you that this fight is as brutal as they get.
We will kick things off by talking about a particularities of the two competitors. We are looking at the GTS-R Commemorative Edition ACR, the nod to one of a just 100 white-with-blue-stripes GTS-R monsters Dodge built following this V10 animal’s FIA GT2 championship back in 1997.
As for the Woking machine, this is one of the early cars, namely the 12C – keep in mind that this British automotive producer offered the complimentary power upgrade that took things from 600 to 625 ponies after the first vehicles were produced.
Nevertheless, the soundtrack of this McLaren 12C does offer the hint towards the fact that a twin-turbo 3.8-liter V8 occupying the middle section of the supercar might have received some aftermarket attention.
If we’re to refer to the factory stock specs of the two go-fast beasts, the battle between them has clear… winners. It is all down to the type of brawl one chooses: throw these two at each other on the circuit and the Viper will devour the 12C. If, however, this fight takes place in the straight line, the Mclaren is the clear winner.
Sure, they both come with the power-to-weight ratio of 2.5 kg/hp, but a transmission difference along is enough to give the Brit the consistent edge.
And if you zoom in on a take-off phase of the drag race in this video, you will notice that the Big Mac jumps ahead of the snake as if it had all-wheel-drive.
