Lamborghini Aventador vs Ferrari FF - drag race video

A mega drag race video featuring a Lamborghini Aventador, Ferrari FF, Porsche 911 Turbo and more

It’s not uncommon for us to drag race cars on a runway. But we’ve never done it at an active airport with passenger jets taking off and landing in the background.

And so we leapt at the chance to take part in Race the Runway at Edinburgh Airport. The event, sponsored by Mercedes, was held to raise money for the Prince and Princess of Wales Hospice and the Scottish Burned Children’s Club.

In total 25 cars, ranging from a Lamborghini Aventador to a TVR Tuscan, took part. Entrants were timed over a 1,350-metre course on one of the taxi runways.

We would be driving an SLS GT, which, at 199mph, has the highest top speed of any current production Mercedes. So how did it fare against the competition? Watch the video and find out.

Below is a list of some of the competing cars, and their overall finishing time.
