Ultimate Car Drag Race Determines Motorcycles are Still Faster

Ultimate Car Drag Race Shootout... Still not as fast as any given motorcycle.

This is not motorcycle related except that despite the insane prices of these cars they can barely hold a candle to most sport bikes. 

SKIP TO 5:32 FOR THE ACTUAL RACE
As part of Motor Trend’s annual Best Driver’s Car competition powered by Mothers, we line up the contenders on an airstrip and bask in the glory of horsepower, wheelspin, and launch control. This year, Senior Features Editors Jason Cammisa and Jonny Lieberman give you a quick tour of the 12 competitors before strapping into their insurance-mandated helmets and firesuits and introducing pedal to metal. This year, the contestants are the Acura NSX, Aston Martin V12 Vantage S manual, Audi R8 V10 Plus, BMW M4 GTS, Chevrolet Camaro SS 1LE, Dodge Viper ACR, Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R, Jaguar F-Type SVR, McLaren 570S, Mercedes-AMG GT S, Nissan GT-R, and Porsche 911 Carrera S—except for one small addition after Jason realizes Jonny’s Dodge Charger Hellcat is parked nearby.
