Eeach year for the past five years, Motor Trend has gathered up all the cars in contention for their Best Driver’s Car award and lined them up for a drag race, calling it the ‘World’s Greatest Drag Race.’ It’s a pretty accurate title, with the race usually featuring a jaw-dropping array of expensive exotica, and this year’s edition is no exception.
The three heavy hitters in this year’s World’s Greatest Drag Race are the 650 horsepower Chevrolet Corvette Z06, the 573 horsepower Bentley Continental GT30R and the 503 horsepower Mercedes-Benz AMG GT-S. The Z06 has a clear advantage in the numbers game, but don’t discount the super well-engineered AMG GT-S and the all-wheel drive Bentley.
Behind those three, the Porsche Cayman GT4, Cadillac CTS-V, Cadillac ATS-V, Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG, Lexus RC-F, Volkswagen Golf R and Mazda MX-5 Miata are left to settle their differences. The difference in price between many of these cars make it a somewhat predictable showdown, but that hardly takes away from the entertainment factor.
