What happens when 13 of the world’s fastest cars line up? For the 6th version of the world’s greatest drag race, Motor Trend brought something for everyone. Germany was well represented by the BMW M4 GTS, Audi R8 V10 Plus, Porsche 911 Carrera S, and the Mercedes-AMG GT S. For Queen and Country the English competitors consisted of a McLaren 570S along with a Jaguar F-Type SVR and Aston-Martin V12 Vantage S.

Looking for a home field advantage the domestic contingent was Ford’s Shelby GT350 R, Camaro 1LE, and for a Dodge Viper ACR making its Grand Finale. The only sedan in the race was a Charger Hellcat on slightly used tires. Although the Acura NSX is built in Ohio, it is as Japanese as Nissan’s GT-R. At first, you might disregard the rear wheel drive cars for being at a disadvantage, but most of the competitors have some form of launch control. Boost pressure can turn mice into monsters, so maybe forced induction will produce a winner. Needless to say, you will be surprised who reaches the end of the quarter-mile first. Some of these cars have tall differential gears, so tell us who would win the half-mile in the comments below.
