Best drag races 2016/2017

Two cars, a strip of runway and nowhere to hide. Everybody loves a drag race. Take a look at the best Auto Express drag race videos here.

It's not the most scientific test, nor is it particularly relevant to the real world, but there's something special about a drag race. There's nowhere for slowpokes to hide - just two cars, two drivers, and a long strip of tarmac waiting to receive a massive overdose of horsepower and smoldering rubber.

While we mainly focus on in-depth, comprehensive reviews here at Auto Express, there's no shame in having a bit of fun sometimes, which is why we enjoy putting two cars against each other in our drag race videos the ultimate test of straight-line speed.

Some of these races pit David vs Goliath; cars you'd never expect to be in the same league as each other running a surprisingly close race. Other times we race similar rivals against each other to see if a drag race can separate them where on-paper figures can't.

We've got shootouts between tiny hot hatchbacks, performance car heroes, high-powered supercars, and luxury SUVs. We even try out a Formula 1 car to see just how fast these pinnacles of performance are in a straight-line sprint.
