On real roads it will struggle to come close to these numbers. These 2 wheel drive cars are all traction-limited at low speeds. And if it wasn't for those huge tyres and hi-tech rubber, they would never do sub 3 second 0-100 kph on roads.

does this also apply on dodge and chevy ? because those two are the best examples out there along with the king of sideways the old dirtbag ford rustang

It applies to everything that doesn't have all wheel drive. But to lesser extent to your so much hated Porsche 911s, because they have "engine in wrong place" for more weight on the driven axle.

the 9/11 beetle is not a safe car with or without awd, it's another way of executing the public with 4 wheels, naz_i power doing its job without anyone feeling what's coming to them :)

it doesn't matter if the engine is in the right or wrong place, your fate is already sealed when you drive any of the poorshenanigan cars

MT estimates 2.3 in the Huayra BC. Certainly at 1.7 kg/bhp it has the power but for rwd 2.8-9 is more realistic.

Mindboggling. Imagine it does 170 in the time it took the Bentley to do 130 and in less time than it took the Performante to do 150 mph. Even more incredible is it's gentle ride and forgiving nature. Needed better tyres though. The third fastest in a straightline-the GT R was the Iron King of the track. It's a little twitchier and harsher but is a lot cheaper. And the 720s was tezted at 667 m or 2200 feet above sea level!

I doubt the Huayra BC can do a 2.3 second 0-62mph time. The LaFerrari has a power to weight of 1.65kg/cv, but Ferrari claimed 2.9 seconds. Also, the quickest the LaFerrari has done it in is 2.5 seconds, and it has a dual clutch.

9.98 is not "9 second quarter mile time". I would call it "sub 10 second" quarter mile time.

9 second flat. is what 917 does on winter tires lol

FL- In common drag racing terminology, anything less than 10.00 is a '9 second quarter'.

917 on modern tires would beat Hamiltons Mercedes in drag race.

That is misleading, "in the nines" would be better.

i had the chance to play gran turismo sport and decided to see how far por-shee has gone with the gt3 rs conservative bs power, to my surprise it walked away from the 650S in a straight line!!!!!!

we did two more tests up against 458 italia + huracan and we ended up with the same results. the bs vw marketing team are afraid to provide real world hp numbers.

i bet it would walk away from 720s too if they didn't have the gt2 ratatat fake 2wd turbo in their pipeline

Go on custom race and put the hardest difficulty and race against N700 cars. Performance in quick race isn’t accurate, I was quicker than a LaFerrari with the 650S. But on custom race, I couldn’t hang with the Veneno, Veyron 16.4 or LaFerrari.

Is it just me that keeps getting notifications about posts from BR2+ that I can't see, or are others having this issue? @FastestLaps

"hypercar territory" with hypercar power and weight, on paper 720HP, in real world 698WHP = 800+HP.

I think 720S is hypercar - 800+HP/1400kg.

I used this site to calculate the horsepower:

https://www.mk5cortinaestate.co.uk/calculator4.php

It said 698whp is 823hp, don’t know if it means just hp (metric (cv/ps)) or bhp.

823hp = 811bhp / 834hp = 823bhp

If it has 834hp while weighing 1419kg, power to weight ratio is 1.7kg/cv. However, if it has 823hp, power to weight ratio is 1.72kg/cv.

To compare to the Holy Trinity, the 918 Spyder Weissach Package is 1.84kg/cv (887hp, 1634kg), the LaFerrari is 1.64kg/cv (963hp, 1585kg), and the P1 is 1.62kg/cv (917hp, 1490kg).

So the 720S has a better power to weight ratio than the 918 Spyder Weissach Package, but not the P1 and LaFerrari. I’d assume in a roll race, P1 and LaFerrari win because they also have more torque, unless McLaren also underrated torque figures of the 720S.

P1 - 723lb-ft
LaFerrari - 663lb-ft
720S - 568lb-ft

The P1 and LaFerrari also have better torque to weight. But because the McLaren launch control is awesome and gets better and better, the 720S is quickest off the line. Least torque and horsepower, so least wheelspin.
