You will see the full video of the drag race between the 2021 Lexus LC500 vs 2021 Toyota Supra on but for now, I’ll brief you on both cars.
This race shows us that in a drag race, power is not everything. Whenever we use the phrase “drag race” in a sentence with Lexus together, we are most likely referring to the LFA. But this one has an exception as well just as every rule. The drag race video displayed here shows a different Lexus at the starting line.
2021 Lexus LC500 Vs 2021 Toyota Supra in a Drag Race
It is really stylish and also luxurious. It is not definitely your typical candidate for a drag race glory but it possesses a naturally aspirated V8 engine that makes 470 horsepower which is also 350 kilowatts. Even though it is quite a luxurious car, it still got what it takes to be a proper sports car.
Against this awesome and good looking car is a car made by Toyota. And this car is the 2021 Toyota Supra. The 2021 Supra is a brand’s flagship sports car. It possesses a twin-turbo 3.0-liter inline-six engine which is mated to an eight-speed automatic gearbox. And this engine produces a 382 hp which is also 285 kilowatts. I know that there’s obviously a big difference in the power output of the two rival cars, but as I said earlier, in a drag race, power is not everything that matters.
The driver of the Toyota Supra makes use of the sport’s car launch control in the first race. And this adds in ensuring an easy win for the lighter of the two vehicles. While for the second run, the Supra takes off without launch control and yet, that doesn’t really change anything. The Supra is still significantly way faster compared to the Lexus LC 500. One of the presenters explains that the reason for that lies in the cooled driver’s seat of the Lexus, which drains a lot of power. Well its however based on probability.
Although the luxurious grand tourer still gets one last chance in the form of a rolling start drag race. But this is actually where it gets really interesting as both cars are somehow close until they reach the finish line. To know the one that is faster in the end, view the video on YouTube.
