1-mile drag race McLaren P1 vs Porsche 918 vs Ducati 1199 Superleggera



The Ducati outaccelerated both cars until it ran out of gear.

Looked to me like the Porsche was first off the line for the first 125 mph or so, then the ducati from 125-150 mph, then over 150 mph the McLaren, followed by the Porsche.

Race starts at 2:55

I expected the bike to do better up to 100.

Motorcycles have wicked acceleration but their aero sucks.
Over 150mph it's all aero.

Controlling wheelspin and wheelies knocks down the acceleration quite a bit compared to a AWD supercar.

This is what is ironic. What I find most impressive is how these two cars stay with the bike.

It wasnt long ago, that you took any factory car (except the veyron) regardless of price and put it up against a 1000cc + bike and there was no contest. The bike would eat the car.

Bike doing 0-60 in mid 2 second range has been the "norm" for 15 years or more. Low 10 second 1/4 mile bikes have been around since mid/late 80s.

For the cars to catch up like this, is what is impressive.

BTW. If you gave me any of the three in this video, I would take them.

You are absolutely correct! I compete in 1/2 mile drags and you've got to clean up your car for every extra mph. Most people don't realize the incredible amount of wind resistance at high speeds...

Not wanting to spend then next 20 or 30 minutes of my life Googling and researching. Could someone tell me how that Ducati stacks up next to a $15k Kawasaki ZX14R? If that's still the latest and greatest Japanese super bike even.

Meet the 2015 Kawasaki Ninja H2R. It is a 300hp supercharged beast. It isn't street-legal, but a street-legal version is coming.

How close to 300hp do you think the street legal version will get?

I don't know. The closer, the better.

Talk is that the H2 is going to be around 220-ish HP.

Pile of crap Porche. I'd never buy one when it loses such a simple race.

Cool vid.

About a 100hp less which is right around the Duck. I'm sure Eric can confirm but the ZX-14 is around 180. Good point about the aerodynamics though, as you get over 150-160 mph it makes a huge difference. Enough that sticking out your elbow/arm from the fairing can actually slow you down a tad.

The cars have four times +/- the HP of the bike. As you go faster the power to weight ratio advantage starts to slip away at a rapid pace. Speed and acceleration are two totally different things and many things come into play such as gearing and aerodynamics. It doesn't surprise me much at all.

Actually, it has more horsepower than that at the rear wheel: Somewhere between 192hp and 197hp, depending on who you ask. It is a beast.
