Bugatti Chiron versus McLaren 720S in a drag race

Two well-known and hellishly fast vehicles. Which one turned out to be faster in the race on the long straight?

Racing on a long straight is one of the most exciting ways to find out which car is faster. Everything takes on an extra blush when powerful, strictly sporting machines face each other.

One of the cars that since its debut has performed extremely well in drag races is the McLaren 720S. Many times the car was able to overtake more powerful vehicles, thanks to its incredible body construction. The machine has a 4-litre V8 twin-turbo under the bonnet. The specific model from the recording below has been further modified to generate 849 horsepower, which is about 139 horses more than the 720S basic powertrain.

But on the track next to McLaren there was a 1500-horsepower Bugatti Chiron powered by an 8-litre W16 quad-turbo. Was it enough to beat McLaren, who so far enjoyed the title of a car practically impossible to overtake in the race on a long straight? Let’s point out that the struggle we can see below took place on a 1-kilometre-long track.
