McLaren 720S vs. X3M ... McLaren Crashes After Losing Drag

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Not a fair fight given the surface but... Hopefully both cars have full PPF but I guess for one that is moot now.

McLaren 720S Crashes After Losing Drag Race to BMW X3 M

It wasn't a good day for this supercar driver.


This McLaren 720S driver's day went from bad to worse after they crashed their car into a hay bale right after losing a drag race against a BMW X3 M, a video published to TikTok shows.

This one is down to a bad driver.

McLaren 720S ¼-mile: 10.3 sec @ 143 mph source. BMW X3M ¼-mile: 11.6 sec @ 119 mph source.

Yeaaaa…. That X3M certainly isn’t stock. Some of them have broken into the 9s if I’m not mistaken. Highly capable.

I prefaced my statement with "regardless of context" because i have no idea if either car is modded, experienced drivers, etc. Every sane person knows the 720s is a faster car, but the fact that we are here watching "SUV's" pull this hard is a treat. I would like to add tho, we have plenty of 10 second & even a 9 second F9X on this forum, but as always, drag races arent won based on specs.

Yeah, we have 10 second F9X's & a 9 second one as well. Stock, this is a no brainer, but without context, its so cool to watch this platform rip.

Traction looks like it would be hard to come by based on what you can see on the track. Easy win for anything that has four driven wheels. Mclaren driver kept in it for too long and then struggled for grip at the end, just like the start.

There's no mystery here.

For all it's worth: hopefully this event was organized on a closed road without spectators or innocent bystanders.

Based on the video, the McLaren driver is definitely a nooob, a novice driver for a fact and most of all...his dumba$$ was BLIND AS A BAT!!! How he did not see the straightway ending and the turn approaching is beyond me.

No way that was a stock X3MC
720S has loads of traction with mid engine, even with a bad driver and bad road it should still beat a stock X3MC

but OUCH, used 720S still go for ever $300K, with that kind of accident on file, maybe $200K and one pissed off insurance company (who will probably deny claim for drag racing)

It appears to me that with recent stimulus funds many Mustang drivers have traded up to McLarens much to the benefit of YouTube viewers.
