My McLaren 675LT vs Ford GT DRAG RACE! Warning: Major Upset

McLaren 675LT Spider vs New Ford GT!
3x races head-to-head and data for 1/4 mile times. Win a dream car and £50,000 cash with BOTB:

It's Shmeemobile drag race time with two supercars against one another with the McLaren 675LT Spider and Ford GT! Both cars are of similar weight, with about the same amount of power, and on paper quite hard to tell them apart with both claiming 10.8 seconds for the 1/4 mile sprint.

The McLaren 675LT Spider has a 3.8l TT V8 with 675hp and 700Nm, against the Ford GT with a 3.5l TT V6 making 656hp and 746Nm, with both cars weighing approximately 1,350kg, having 7 speed DCT gearboxes, and sending all of the power to the rear wheels with a launch control mode for maximum performance.

With three races head to head, joined by Christian from BOTB to pilot the 675LT Spider while I take the wheel of the Ford GT, let's see how they actually shape up... prepare to be surprised!

With BOTB, you can choose from almost 200 different cars to play for including supercars and plenty of performance cars. Tickets start at just 45p and there's also the option to add £50,000 cash to your prize! Enter before midnight on Sunday for a chance to be their big Tuesday winner!

I’ve been supporting BOTB for many years and have met many of their 600+ winners myself. Big thanks to BOTB for sponsoring this video!

Thanks for watching, Tim

    @Jeff Kovacs Not at all an issue. The Ford GT is not particularly FAST. Its kind of a homage supercar. The race version is a different story. The consumer version is better than Honda NSX but still inferior to machines like Porsche 911 GT3 RS, Hurracan Performance, Ferrari 488, Mclaren 675, etc

    Another fun episode Tim... I wonder if the modified exhaust - which is perhaps optimized for sound rather than maximum performance - is part of the issue with the GT?

    Neither will the Ford be faster in a straight line nor on a drag race. The McLaren is way better than any Ford. I suspect that even a Porsche 911 GT3 wud be as fast or faster than a Ford GT.

    I'm sure it would negatively affect track performance and may even be impossible due to the way ford designed the car but imagine how close this race would be if they opted for a v8 in the gt.

    Not surprising at all. We knew the GT was slow when they released the numbers per release of the car. It’s entire value lies in the name and the appearance.

    Wasn't surprised that much of the result since the GT is ~70kg heavier (ie kind of has one passenger more onboard). Also seems like McLaren has done a bit better job with the wheel spin. But this was a great comparison test anyways! :)

    I think both cars are amazing. It is really crazy how the LT is so much faster. The torgue just kicks in earlier and together with little bit more HP it makes the difference I think. The V8. No question the Fords engine is also stunning. I know there can be many more reasons also. Aero, the Transmission so on I wonder wich one is faster on tracks ;)

    Another great video! I too was a little disappointed the GT did not win but then again it is designed to be a track weapon and not a drag race machine. Shmee, if it does bother you I'll be more than happy to take it off your hands and you will not have to look at it ever again. Really, its no problem on my part :) Keep up the great work and continue to stay safe and healthy.
