Top Gear recently had the pleasure of having all three performance cars to themselves on a makeshift drag strip to pit against each other in an outright test of quickness. Coincidentally, this is a battle of drivetrains as well. All-wheel drive vs. rear-wheel-drive vs. front-wheel drive.
The Jack Rix prediction? GR Yaris fastest off the line, the Civic Type R in second place, and the GR Supra taking the overall win. Let’s see how this pans out then, shall we:
A minute well-spent, if you ask us. Rix was right about the GR Yaris being the sprightliest off the line, but, surprisingly, it beat the Civic Type R to the line, too. No surprise, though, that the significantly more powerful GR Supra took the win.
Frankly, seeing more of this would be nice—simple, minute-long, no-nonsense drag battles. What other ride would you like to see duke it out in this format?
