Flat six plays V8 and V12 in the ultimate test of the latest and best supercars. Can the astonishing traction of the Porsche 911 Turbo S compensate for the 622bhp and 731bhp offered up by the Mercedes SLS AMG Black Series and Ferrari F12 Berlinetta.

Or will pure, unadulterated pace be too much for the 991-generation 911 Turbo on the standing quarter mile and standing kilometre? Steve Sutcliffe referees this incredible supercar drag race.

What a wonderfu car the F12 is.Simply AWESOME

As the owner of a Maserati Grand Tourismo and and a Fiat 500 Abarth,I am happy to see the F12 beat those other cars.I am sorry the M-Benz did not do better against the Porsche.I have great respect for any car manufacturer that participates in F1,and this is the reason I have no respect for any of VW products.I hope M-Benz can try yo at least try to beat the stupid Porsche.My next cars will include an F12 for sure.Keep them coming Ferrari.

Video editor - you're fired.

Interesting comparison, the SLS leaves me cold though. Shame the speedo had to block what would have been an interesting view out of the front of a 200mph Ferrari. What were you thinking? Surely the whole point of the run to the end with a view from inside was so that we could get some idea of what it was like. The speedo was perfectly visible at it's normal size, we certainly didn't need our attention drawing to it in the manner in which it was done, and certainly not at the expense of missing the high speed final stages. Person responsible for this - consider yourself a maker of poor decisions.

Same result next time

The drag race between Laferrari, P1 and 918 will have the same result, Ferrari being the winner. And if 911 is half the price of F12 it's because the F12 is twice as good. Not only better performance but everything else also, quality, materials, engineering and of course the brand. And if you pay that kinda money for a car you sure have the money for spare tires. Or you could buy a weaker car like Porsche so your tires will last many years.
