Ferrari 488 Pista Drag Races Tuned Porsche 911 Turbo S, Destruction Follows

When you drive a machine such as the Ferrari 488 Pista and show up at a drag racing event, you can expect to become the target of tuned machines. Oh, and you shouldn't just think of older models hoping the underdog car can help them. For one thing, we are now here to talk about a drag race between the Prancing Horse and a modded Porsche 911 Turbo S.

The two supercars got together on an airfield in the UK, which meant they had all the space in the world to stretch their mechanical legs.

As for the aficionados behind the wheel, we're talking about the actual owners, so there's more to this video than the battle itself.

Sure, it's easy to sit behind a keyboard and claim that you could do it better than these drivers, but the truth is it's all about practice. So, if you drive such a supercar, but don't often use its full abilities, you too might end up in such a scenario.

When it comes to the machines, the 488 Pista headed to the race in factory form, so we're talking about 720 ponies.

Then we have the Porsche, a 991.2 Turbo S Cabriolet (of course, the Cabrio form only added to the weight disadvantage) and, according to its owner, the twin-turbo 3.8-liter flat-six occupying the rear end has been massaged to 800 horses - given the fact that the standard muscle number of the beast sits at 580 hp, the reported jump is quite something, but is this real?

Regardless, the hostilities kicked off with a standing start adventure, but a rolling race soon followed, so you'll get to see the complete take on the battle between the supercars.

Spoiler alert:The roll race gap should've probably been greater, at least based on the results from the dig race, but it looks like a driving mishap prevented this from happening, even though a clear winner did emerge.
