    Comparing an SL63 AMG, V8 Supercar race car, and Formula 1 car around the track

    Here is a comparison that puts into perspective the difference between a fast street car and race cars. Obviously, Formula 1 cars are the quickest thing around a track so it will surprise absolutely nobody that it trounces a street legal AMG around a track. It also beats the V8 Supercar race car as well showing just how rapid a Formula 1 car is in comparison to a very quick race car. For those unfamiliar, the V8 supercar series is run in Australia and the cars have roughly 650 horsepower.

    Watch the video below and be amazed at the pace of the F1 car to beat the other two to the finish line despite the half a minute starting handicap.

    lol, and you know the guy in the AMG thought he was haulin... the holden GTS sedan is a V8 supercar though? I mean I get it that's the class or name of that race series, but would have rather seen an M3 GTS supercharged, or GT3, some other car that's already a track car with a good amount of mods like many enthusiast drive.

    I think the comparison was basically to do a street car, versus mid-range race car, and then formula 1 car. I think they did a good job spacing each out.
