Mercedes-AMG GT R Drag Races McLaren 675LT Spider, Destruction Is Serious

One of the most enticing aspects of the drag racing realm is the randomness that sometimes characterizes straight-line battles. And the sprinting fight we're here to show you easily serves as an example of this. Now, before we move any further, allow us to mention that we skipped a name in the title. To be more precise, the Mercedes-AMG GT R and the McLaren 675 Longtail Spider were joined by an Aston Martin Vantage GT8

As heavy YouTube surfers among you might have figured out by now, these are some of the cars owned by vlogger Shmee150, with the beasts having recently hit an airfield together.

We don't get to feature three-way drag races all that often and given the exotic nature of the machines present in this one, the excitement level goes through the roof.

Keep in mind that the Woking animal is powered by a twin-turbo 3.8-liter V8 delivering 675 ponies. As for the Affalterbach toy, its engine compartment holds a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 with 585 hp on tap.

As for the Gaydon toy, the old-school machine packs a naturally aspirated 4.7-liter V8 producing a healthy 446 hp. Oh and while its opponents come in dual-clutch form, the Aston packs a manual tranny.

In the tire department, both the Vantage GT8 and the GT R pack Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 units, while the 675 Longtail comes with Pirelli Trofeo R rubber.

As for the aural side of the fight, this is where the Aston Martin leaves its rivals trailing in its wake.

P.S.: If you happen to be in a hurry and wish to skip straight to the racing action, you should know this awaits you at the 9:17 point of the video. Nevertheless, you might also want to check out the cheater's edit, which you can find at the point of the clip.
