Motor Trend’s Best Driver’s Car competition is over, but the publication always sends the weeks of testing and judging out with a bang. That is World’s Greatest Drag Race.
All 12 competitors from Best Driver’s Car line up at an airstrip for one final shootout in a quarter-mile drag race. This year, the 2017 C7 Corvette Grand Sport and 2018 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE represented the bowtie brand, but plenty of stiff competition was present. Foremost, MT swapped out the Mazda MX-5 Miata for a Tesla Model S P100D, since the Miata had no chance whatsoever. As we all know, the Tesla is a rocket from launch, with instant torque.
Additionally, the Nissan GT-R Nismo, AMG GT R, McLaren 570GT and the Ferrari 488 GTB were all looking for a win. Can the Corvette Grand Sport or 650-horsepower Camaro ZL1 1LE take down the supercars? Or come close? You’ll have to press play above to find out.
