Who’s ready for an EPIC drag race? Mat has got his hands on a McLaren Senna for the first time ever! And he’s about to go head-to-head with… A Lexus?! Well, trust us, this is no ordinary Lexus… it’s a Lexus RC F Drift Car! And for the first time, Ahmad Daham will try not to go sideways!
So let’s take a closer look at how these two cars compare. Starting with the Lexus may be based on an RC F, but the only thing left from the original car is pretty much the Lexus badges at the front and rear! It’s powered by a 2JZ engine that can produce an eye-watering 1,200hp and 1,000Nm of torque, and it’s super light, weighing in at just 1,250kg!
Then alongside it, we have Mat in the McLaren. The Senna is powered by a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 that can put down an amazing 800hp and 800Nm! In terms of weight, it comes in at 1,309kg.
So the Lexus has more power, AND it weighs less – but when you consider it’s designed to be flung around corners at pace, does it really stand a chance going in a straight line? There’s only one way to find out… LET’S RACE!
