The McLaren 765LT and Porsche 911 Turbo S have both displayed exceptional drag racing capabilities, as evidenced by numerous videos online where they dominate the competition in the quarter mile. However, the ultimate question remains: what would happen if they went head-to-head? Shmee150‘s newest video sets out to settle this debate once and for all.
In terms of specifications, the 765LT weighs in at 2,952 lb (1,339 kg) and is equipped with a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that delivers 755 hp (765 PS / 563 kW) and 590 lb-ft (800 Nm) of torque to the rear wheels. On the other hand, the 911 Turbo S weighs 3,616 lb (1,640 kg), but boasts a 3.8-liter twin-turbo flat-six engine that sends 641 hp (650 PS / 478 kW) and 590 lb-ft (800 Nm) of torque to all four wheels.
This means that the McLaren possesses the power-to-weight advantage, while the Porsche may be able to compensate for this with the launch advantage provided by its AWD.
