The Internet seems to be obsessed with the fact that the McLaren 720S is slightly better at the drag racing game than the Ferrari 488 Pista. Then again, we have to keep in mind that the driving experience delivered by the Prancing Horse is more immersive compared to that of the Woking animal. In fact, you should only focus on the said straight-line statistics if you happen to own a Pista and wish to engage in drag racing on a regular basis.
Sure, there are more efficient ways of owning a drag race that can take corners, but a fixation is a fixation, so here we are, talking about the Pista and the 720S duking it out in a straight line again.

In fact, the drag race we have here is a rematch, with these mid-engined rivals having battled back in the summer.

We're talking about two machines that are part of a supercar group, with the latter spending its time on the streets of Southern California.

And since these guys hate giving explanations to anybody whose attire was paid for by the state, but they still want to race on the go rather than visit the drag strip, they keep their adventures as brief as possible, albeit with the stunts still delivering a clear winner.

Thus, you'll get to see the 488 Pista and the 720S duking it out in traffic at the 8:19 point of the video below, with the exotics battling on two separate occasions.

However, if you skip to the 5:07 point of the clip, you'll get to see the Pista battling a Porsche 911 GT2 RS.

Keep in mind that all three monster have been fitted with light mods. And while we can't be sure about the aftermarket bits on the Rennsport Neunelfer and the Macca, the Fezza features a Gintani tune and exhaust, while sipping on VP 110 race juice.
