Can A Porsche 918 Spyder Beat A Rallycross Car In A Drag Race?

Carwow’s got a new drag race for us and this time it’s between a Porsche 918 hypercar against a Red Bull WRX Rallycross car.

The Porsche boasts a 4.6-litre naturally-aspirated V8, paired with two electric motors, delivering a combined 887hp and 1,280Nm of torque! Weighing in at 1,674kg, this modern-day Porsche icon now demands seven figures plus if you want to own one.

On the other side, we have the WRX rallycross car, based on a Peugeot 208 rally car, featuring a 2-litre turbocharged engine generating 620hp. All that power is distributed to the four wheels.

The WRX is pretty quick right off the line, but can it outrun the 918 over the quarter-mile? Watch the video to find out!
