A MotoGP Bike Drag Races A Formula 1 Car And Modified Porsche 911 Turbo S
Carwow organized a drag race between a Moto GP KTM RC16, an F1 Red Bull RB8, and a Porsche 911 Turbo S modified by ES Motor to see which of the three accelerates the fastest in a straight line.
The KTM RC16, ridden by the skilled Dani Pedrosa, boasts a 1.0-liter V4 engine generating 270 horsepower, all packed into a lightweight 157-kilogram frame. It possesses the best weight-power ratio among them, even though it has only two wheels to harness its power.
The F1 Red Bull RB8 driven by Sebastian Vettel to a world championship victory in 2012, features 800 horsepower generated by a 2.4-liter naturally aspirated V8 engine and weighs 700 kilograms.
The Porsche 911 Turbo S, extensively modified by the Turkish tuner, packs the most power with its twin-turbo engine delivering 1400 horsepower (temporarily reduced to 1200 horsepower for the race) and weighing 1700 kilograms. Mat Watson, the editor, takes the wheel of this German supercar.
