It would take one less than four hours to get from the Ferrari factory in Maranello to the Pagani mother ship in San Cesario sul Panaro, but only if that distance was covered by foot. Of course, the stunning machines that come out of them are extremely different, despite many of them sharing the number of cylinders. And, for now, we'll focus on a battle between the LaFerrari and the Huayra, with this involving a drag race.
The Italian monsters got together in Switzerland and the occasion that saw the V12 animals being throw at each other was rather special.

I'm refering to the Supercar Owners Circle event, which was held on Andrematt, which involved plenty of high-dollar machine one wouln't normally encounter during a drag racing gathering.

As such, the LaF and the Huayra (it was a Coupe, if you must know) duked it out in a non-professional manner, so, for instance none of the drivers seemed to engage Launch Control for the battle.

While the Mercedes-AMG-supplied 6.0-liter V12 of the Huayra uses a pair of turbos to deliver its 730 horsepower, the Ferrari V12 we have here turns to an electric power adder, with the resulting output sitting at 963 hp. Nevertheless, the Pagani pack an extra 100 Nm on top of the Prancing Horse's gas-electric 900 Nm of twist.

Sadly, the event was anything but well coordinated, which means that many of the races were rendered useless by human error. And that includes flag wielders and drivers alike. So you can skip to the 4:35 point of the video for the said brawl without any worries.

Nevertheless, if you wish to know more about other races that survived the said ordeal, I shall suggest this shenanigan involving the Porsche 918 Spyder and the Bugatti Chiron, which is worthy of your attention despite its obvious outcome.
