By now, anybody who’s spent enough time on the internet knows how the street race looks like. On many such occasions, the level of hp involved is only matched by the egos of those behind the wheel, so it is easy for people to get carried away and take things to the insanely dangerous speeds.
Some street races are longer than others, though, and the one we are here to show you belongs to the kind that is over in the few breaths.
We’re looking at the three-way public road sprint, one that brings together no less than 1,625 horsepower, coming from three contraptions. The speed demons that put on this stunt are the Porsche 911 GT3, the PDK kind, the current generation Audi R8 V10 and the Lamborghini Huracan, which comes in standard 610 horsepower, all-wheel-drive form.
The three monsters come from California and while the police in the state doesn’t exactly goes easy on the drivers who engage in such races, the participants went for a blitz approach.
In fact, this is what sets a street race apart from most events of its kind, as the beasts barely got to third gear. Still, while the take-off phase was rather tight, there was enough time for a result to be far from the photo finish kind.
The speed demons went for the classic one-two-three horn start, it looks like the procedure was accurate enough – many races of the sort are affected by the the fact that a driver who works the horn ends up jumping the start.
