You guessed it: supercars. Today, we have a drag race between three of the finest examples. There are two Italians represented in the form of Ferrari's 488 Pista and the Lamborghini Aventador SV. 

The last protagonist is McLaren's 720S. 

So what do they all come to the gunfight with? Well, the Ferrari is powered by a 3.9-litre twin-turbocharged V8 with 530kW and 770Nm. It will reach 0-100km/h in under 2.5 seconds. 

The Lamborghini has a massive 6.5-litre V12 engine and packs 552kW and 690Nm, it has claimed 0-100km/h sprint time of 2.8 seconds. 

And finally the McLaren 720S with its 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine produces 530kW and Pista-equaling 770Nm. 

Zero to 100km/h for the British supercar takes just 2.9 seconds. 

Let's see who wins this drag race. 

Carwow says: "Three incredible supercars, going head-to-head over the quarter-mile! Mat's in the Ferrari 488 Pista, and he's going head-to-head against a McLaren 720S and a Lamborghini Aventador SV! Combined, they deliver a HUGE 1633kW and 2230Nm of torque!"
