McLaren Senna Lines Up Against A 1200HP Lexus Drift Car In A Drag Race

Mat Watson from Carwow, is no stranger to presenting thrilling drag races featuring powerful cars. In this video, he brings us an epic showdown between the McLaren Senna and a heavily modified Lexus RC F drift car, both vying for supremacy over a standing quarter-mile.

The McLaren Senna is an extraordinary supercar, purpose-built for the track while retaining road legality. Its twin-turbo 4.0-liter engine, nestled behind the seats, churns out an impressive 789 horsepower and 590 pound-feet (800 Newton-meters) of torque. With such incredible performance figures, the Senna can accelerate from 0 to 62 miles per hour (100 kilometers per hour) in a mere 2.8 seconds.

The McLaren Senna faces off against a highly customized Lexus RC F drift car, driven by Ahmad Daham, a five-time Middle East drift champion and a Guinness World Record holder for the longest twin drift. This particular Lexus RC F has undergone extensive modifications, boasting a 3.0-liter 2JZ engine that delivers a jaw-dropping 1,200 horsepower and 738 lb-ft (1,000 Nm) of torque. It’s important to note, though, that as a dedicated drift car, it’s not really designed for straight line races.

Can the 1,200-horsepower Japanese coupe outmatch McLaren’s flagship supercar? Watch the video to find out!
