700HP Supra vs 840KG RX-7 vs Porsche 911: DRAG RACE

What’s quicker in a drag race – a Mk4 Supra with £40k worth of mods added to it, or a Mazda RX-7 from 1983 that’s been absolutely stripped out and is now used as a time attack car?
Well, it’s time to find out!

So let’s see how these two compare. Starting with the Supra, the original 3-litre straight-six twin-turbo has had one of the turbos removed, while the original automatic gearbox has been swapped for an 8-speed ZF gearbox from a BMW 530d. It’s also fitted with a transbrake that’ll help to build up boost and propel it off the line.

All of this means the Supra can produce an incredible 700hp and 780Nm of torque. It tips the scales at around 1,500kg, and to buy this exact car would cost around £80,000 – £40k for the base car, and £40k for the mods.

Then we have the RX-7, which has had so many mods applied to it that it’s hardly even an RX-7 anymore! Under the bonnet you’ll find a 2-litre 4 cylinder from the original Civic Type R which has also had a turbo added to it, and it’s also fitted with a manual gearbox from a BMW 330d.

Given it’s a time attack car, it has been absolutely stripped and added with tonnes of aero, and it now tips the scales at just 840kg!

But there’s also a special guest contender to take on both of these cars – a 911 Carrera T! It’s fitted with the standard 3-litre turbocharged flat-six, and this can produce 385hp and 450Nm of torque. It weighs in at 1,470kg, but the question is, will the power-to-weight ratio help it propel itself to victory.

There’s only one way to find out for sure… LET’S RACE! Don’t forget to follow us also on Facebook, Pinterest or Instagram!
