Tuned Alpine A110 Drag Races Supra, Audi TT RS and Cayman GTS, Results Shock

There's no question 2019 will go down as one of the most epic years for cars. From an almost dead segment, sports cars have crawled out of hiding and don't stop amazing us.

Carwow has already taken advantage of this racing the new Toyota Supra against its twin brother from BMW, not now we have an Audi TT RS Roadster, a Porsche Cayman GTS and a modified Alpine A110 in a drag race. This feels almost like a clickbait video, but you'd be a fool not to check it out.

As Mat Watson puts it, the outcome of the race is not what you'd imagine would happen. The Audi TT RS Roadster should be the star of the show since it's got the most power and the advantage of an AWD launch.

You've seen these things demolish much more powerful cars at drag strips, but apparently, the 2019 is muted, either by something wrong with this example or the GPF they had to install. But it's not the others don't have a GPF too.

The Supra is actually a little heavier than the TT RS Roadster, plus it's only supposed to make 340 horsepower from its 3-liter BMW engine. But we've seen enough dyno tests to know that's not the case.

In both types of race, pure acceleration and the rolling kind, the Porsche Cayman GTS does very well. But Porsche always knows what it's doing. The real shock comes from the Alpine A110. This unit happens to be modified by Litchfield, so its 1.8-liter engine, the smallest one here, produces 300 horsepower instead of the usual 250. Considering it only weighs 1.1 tons, perhaps we shouldn't be surprised that it's good.

Chris Harris says you should get one because the chances of a machine like this ever being approved for production again are slim. BMW reportedly decided not to make another Z4 after this one, so he may be on to something.
