Motor Trend’s “World’s Greatest Drag Race” is all about the cars.
America was well-represented with the Dodge Viper ACR, Dodge Charger Hellcat, Ford Mustang Shelby GT350, and Chevrolet Camaro SS 1LE. Some of Europe’s finest also participated in the race, including Germany’s Audi R8 V10 Plus, Porsche 911 Carrera S,Mercedes-AMG GT S, and BMW M4 GTS, and the U.K.’s McLaren 570S, Jaguar F-Type SVR. The Nissan GT-R Premium and the Acura NSX make up the Japanese contingent.
The ultimate question that’s always asked in the World’s Greatest Drag Race is which of these cars can cover a quarter-mile the fastest.
My money was on the Audi R8, because that’s the one I would spend my own money on if I could afford it.
Watch closely, because the race is over in just over ten seconds.
As indicated in my initial post on this subject titled “My Favorite Cars From The 1920s“ I remarked that there weren’t many beautiful cars until the 1930s and they produced some absolutely gorgeous automobiles in that era.
Cars from the 40s were pretty nice too, but many cars from the 1950s are special to me because that’s when I got my drivers license and my love of cars began. Here are more of my favorites from the 1950s.
