World’s Greatest Drag Race 3 by MotorTrend

greatest drag race of all time

Imagine being able to get 12 of the hottest production cars in the world, line them up, and letting them rip down a track side-by-side in battle to be the king of the world for a day. Motor Trend for the third consecutive year has pulled off this amazing feat. This year’s crop of cars included the Nissan GT-R Racing Edition, Aston Martin Vanquish, SRT Viper, and a Ford Focus. Looking at picture is not enough to explain this event. This is a “must watch” video for all die hard car fans.

The winner? The Nissan GT-R Racing Edition won, but was closely followed by two more powerful cars at higher top end speeds. The Nissan’s powerful torque and superior traction let it blow away from the crowd out of the gate and hold on for the lead. Last place? Of course, the Ford Focus pulled up the rear, but at 1/4 the price of the other vehicles it provided an amazing performance and with minor tweaking could be major competitor.
