The Internet posted a video of a rather interesting drag racing between the latest generation Toyota Supra and the all-wheel drive Volkswagen Golf R.

A quarter mile race was arranged on one of the runways of the port city of Cape Town, which is located in the south-west of South Africa.

Toyota Supra hides a 3.0-liter 335-hp engine under the hood The turbocharged engine was borrowed from the Bavarian BMW Z4 Roadster. An 8-speed automatic transmission, which drives the rear-wheel drive of the car, is used as a transmission.

The opponent has the most “charged” version of the Volkswagen Golf R. According to passport data, a 2.0-liter turbocharged car engine should produce 303 hp. The hatchback is equipped with a 7-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive.

Recall that according to the manufacturer Toyota Supra should accelerate to 100 km / h in 4.1 seconds, and the Volkswagen Golf R – in 4.8 seconds.

Despite the fact that Supra is a bit more powerful in technical specifications, the German opponent managed to take a leading position, losing a little at the start. From part of this merit, he owes all-wheel drive.
