The two supercars recently engaged in a street fight - not only did this mean they skipped the safety and the prepped surface benefits of the drag stip, but it also involves a mediocre video.

The Macca and the Fezza duked it out using a rolling start and, as you'll get to notice in the piece of footage at the bottom of the page, the winner was clear.

It looks like the Maranello machine gets the jump, with its driver deciding to bail out as soon as the Woking machine starts to show its potential.

Keep in mind that the British toy has is known as the supercar that hasn't lost a drag race, with the McLaren 720S even defeating heavily modified Nissan GT-Rs.

Then again, there's one key factor that doesn't get showcased in this video and it all involves the emotional side of the driving experience. This is where the Ferrari easily leaves the McLaren trailing in its wake.

Now, back to the drag racing realm that brought us here

Having discussed the drag racing abilities of the Ferrari 488 Pista in relationship to McLaren goodies, some of you might wonder how the Italian would compare to the 600LT.

Well, we have yet to come across a drag race involving the 488 Pista and the 600 Longtail, but here's one that shows the latter fighting the 720S in a family brawl that involves both a standing and a rolling start.

Then again, it's only a matter of time until the Ferrari 488 Pista hits the drag strip and we can't wait to bring you the resulting footage.
