Most would assume a Redbull RB8 F1 car would be the quickest in a drag race, but when pit against a MotoGP bike, rally car, and electric van in the ultimate drag racing showdown, things are a lot closer than you may think.

Most would think that a Red Bull F1 car would most certainly be faster than any production vehicle, but the Rimac Nevera and McMurtry Spierling have other things in mind.

Lando Norris, a Belgian-British F1 driver, recently picked up his custom McLaren 765LT Spider by MSO (McLaren Special Operations), and it’s a doozy.

Who better to test out the all-new Honda CR-V Hybrid Racer than two-time F1 champion Max Verstappen? That’s exactly what went down ahead of the Miami GP last weekend, and lots of donuts ensued. It’s powered by a twin-turbocharged 2.2L electrified V6 INDYCAR power unit and transmission that generates 800hp, all under a 2023 Honda CR-V Hybrid chassis.
Force India (now Aston Martin) built a motorhome for its drivers during the 2018 season and it could be yours for just over $538,000 USD.
