The chaps over at Motor Trend have been doing this for a few years now. They gather some of the hottest performance cars on the market at an air force base and line them up side-by-side for a drag race. You know the Americans are real petrolheads as it’s only in the USA that the national air force will allow a private company to race on a runway. Over the past few years they have conducted some brilliant contests. You can view the previous encounters on the Motor Trend YouTube channel.

For 2018 they have managed to secure, in no particular order, a McLaren 720S, Porsche 911 GT2 RS, Honda Civic Type R, Lamborghini Huracán Performante, BMW M5, Ford Mustang GT PP2, Alfa Romeo Stelvio Q4 Quadrifoglio, Kia Stinger GT, Audi TT RS, Chevrolet Corvette ZR1, Mazda MX-5 Club, and an Aston Martin Vantage. Barring just two models, we receive all the cars on the list in South Africa.
