Default Anyone lining up a 720S vs A8 ZR1?

Is there anything out there? I need these Mexico tests.
I think the Mac would win a roll run in a Mexico test though. Those 2 are 2 of the hottest cars out there right now.

720s will eat the ZR1 alive for lunch and dinner..

ZR1 barely won against a Demon till 120mph, Check in youtube a video of Demon vs 720s... Demon was slaughtered alive, ZR1 will not be any different.

Default That's what the Nurburgrings for! ;)

A 720s driver would be pushing up roses there.
McLaren's not showing up there with these cars for some reason.
Their speedy concept, racing engine - low drag, and weight, doesn't work there!

I saw that video. I donít think the ZR1 will not represent though. It will be up there.

A track race is more compelling, and the ZR1's saving grace. 'A good Ringtime beats Ferrari, and McLaren', right now.
It will be like racing a motorcycle on track.

Why are you so abrasive and toxic? This thread is not a road course or Ring thread. Re read the title. If you have nothing positive to say then this is not for you.

I'm guessing you lost any and all types of sense quite some time ago.

Apples to Apples , speed costs money , how fast do you want to go?The ZR-1 costs 140k , 720S double that , the AventadorS triple that. I am sure when the speed shops modify the ZR-1 it will be right there with the high end expensive alternatives or better...

Kind of your turbo Mercede's concept on 100 octane, is it?

GM intake - Catless, and 100 octane!

A Good Start Magically imposed by GM?

720S is closer to 400k. This is a just a fun conversation.

Few things ....

1. The fact that anyone even wants to see this race is a testament to Chevy. They really built a badass machine.

2. While I myself would actually love to see this race dig/roll i think the trap speeds alone show the 720s would walk away fairly easily and it should for the price anyway.

None the less the ZR1 A8 with some bolt ons/pulley would be right there with the the 720S and probably beat it. That is pretty ****** sick!

Manual ZR1 vs Auto demon ... The question was A8 ZR1 .. It would do much better but still lose to a 720s.

720s runs 9.7 @ 143mph on the OEM Pirelli Corsa street tire
ZR1 so far has run a best of 10.1 @ 135 on a drag radial

It won't be close from a stop or from a roll. But like others have said you could buy 2.5 ZR1s for the cost of a 720s. ZR1 with a pulley and tune should be able to give it a good run.

It's fairly well known by now that the McLaren is pretty massively under-rated. It's likely turning close to 800HP at the crank and it weighs a fair bit less than the ZR1. There's really little chance the ZR1 would be much of a challenge for it.
