Drag races between high-powered cars happen all the time, all around the world. But if it weren’t for the invention of the internet, we wouldn’t be able to see most of the more spectacular races. Case-in-point, this video of a Mercedes-AMG GT S taking on a Bugatti Veyron, uploaded by GTBOARD.com Oct. 21.
In the video, the two cars pull up to the drag strip for a rolling start, with the AMG GT S getting a little head start. But, can you blame its driver? The power difference between the two cars is staggering.
Even with the head start, the AMG GT S was ultimately taken for a walk by the Veyron in the end. See this happen for yourself by clicking the play button below.
