This is a one-of-a-kind drag race, though there’s so many out there that’s as equally unique, so we competence remonstrate with that. However, what creates this competition flattering engaging is a contrariety between a dual Aston Martin supercars.
On a blue corner, it’s one out of a 150 Vantage GT8 units ever produced. It’s owned and driven by Shmee, among a famed automobile guys on Youtube. His Vantage GT8 is powered by a powered-up 4.7-liter naturally-aspirated V8 engine, able of producing 443 horsepower. It also has a six-speed primer gearbox, that could work for or opposite Shmee on a race.
His competition is CarWow’s Mat Watson, who’s pushing a DB11. While his competition is pushing hang and not a fan of forced induction, a DB11 has a 4.0L twin-turbo V8 underneath a hood – an engine grown by Aston Martin with Mercedes-AMG. Its 503 hp are afterwards sent to a back wheels around an eight-speed involuntary transmission.
While a DB11 has an apparent advantage in terms of power, a Vantage GT8 has a possess precedence when it comes to weight. The latter is some-more than 500 pounds lighter than a former, that narrows a disproportion between a power-to-weight ratio of both cars.
Nevertheless, a DB11 won a station entertain mile race, finishing a drag competition in 12.2 seconds. The Vantage GT8, on a other hand, was roughly a second behind with 13.1 seconds time. If we watched a video, we can see that a involuntary gearbox had a advantage with a quicker shifts, contra a primer shifts that would unequivocally count on a driver.
On a rolling start race, however, a Vantage GT8 took a win from a DB11, and so in a stop tests. That unequivocally says something about a singular Vantage GT8 and a naturally-aspirated energy plant. And oh, that batch titanium empty sounded unequivocally good.
