Ferrari SF90 Stradale Faces Nissan GT-R In Drag Race Street Style

Big deal, just a drag racing video with two supercars, right? Well, that’s not the case with this new clip from wheel Youtube channel. As we’ve often seen from this YouTuber, the action takes place at Mission Raceway Park near Vancouver. But you won’t see any staging lights, green lights, timer lights, or every lights for this run. That is, except for the lights on the car.

By the way, the video features two very fast supercars. On the long trail we have the unmistakable presence of the Ferrari SF90 Stradale, looking fantastic in yellow. We have no information about this particular car, but even in pure stock, it is one of the fastest production cars in the world. With a combined 986 horsepower from a twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 and a trio of electric motors, it can hit 60 mph in about 2.0 seconds and run in under 10 seconds a quarter mile. We’ve seen him do that in previous videos, so every vehicle lining up alongside the Stradale faces a tough challenge.

In this case, the challenger is the Nissan GT-R and we know at least a little bit about it. Season_gg9090 a look in the rear window leads us to an Instagram account where we see it’s a 2021 model, apparently running on E85 fuel. The video description lists it as having 600 hp, which is stock output for the Nismo trim. However, the IG account mentions FBO, a common acronym for Full Bolt-On so we suspect it’s not stock. If the driver is hoping to challenge the Ferrari from a distance, it’s better to pack some serious upgrades.

This is where things go a little sideways compared to normal drag racing videos. We don’t know if there was a technical glitch on the track or if it was a special street themed event, but no timing system was used. Cars are driven forward into trees and staged by hand, with a track employee launching them with the drop of a hand.

It’s very old-fashioned, and frankly, both drivers are slow to react. Neither car appears to have launch control activated, and the GT-R is very slow. However, it did give the Ferrari a proper race to the track, as evidenced by its screaming exhaust tone. That’s not enough, as the SF90 crosses the line with what looks like a car-long cable.

Analyzing numbers can be fun to gauge strength and performance. But sometimes, it’s nice to see two fast cars go by without lights or stats.
