Drag race: Honda NSX vs Red Bull RB7 F1 car vs Arrma Limitless RC car

November 05, 2021 by

Can you go as fast as a Formula 1 car for a fraction of the price? Well today we’re going to find out.

Lining up first (in one of the strangest carwow drag races yet) is the 2011 championship-winning Red Bull RB7 Formula 1 car. It has a naturally aspirated V8 with 750hp. That’s plenty in a car that only weighs 650kg.

Squaring up to this F1 legend is the Arrma Limitless radio-controlled car. This starts out as a rolling shell for £400 and you can build it with any electronics you choose. This particular car has £1000 worth of kit under the bodywork.

Finally, we have the Honda NSX. This has a 3.5-litre twin-turbo V6 engine, which is assisted by 3 electric motors. This delivers 581hp and 645nm of torque to all 4 wheels via a 9-speed dual clutch automatic gearbox.

So do either of these challengers have what it takes to defeat the mighty F1 car? You’ll have to watch the video to find out.
