When you think of a Kawasaki Ninja H2 R, the last thing that comes to mind would probably be drag racing an Acura NSX Type S, that is unless…you’re Edmunds. Why? Well, first off the NSX weighs in at a hefty 3,913-pounds, or at least compared to the 476-pound motorcycle.
You’d think a 1,543-pound Red Bull RB8 F1 car powered by a naturally aspirated 2.3L V8 engine making 789 hp would be the fastest vehicle in a straight line drag race, but the Bugatti Veyron and Porsche 918 Spyder want to put it to the test.

The Alpine A110 Pikes Peak edition is the most extreme A110 model yet and will be competing in the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb.
