When many of us have seen several ‘pull’ races before, where the 911 Turbo S ‘took off’ quickly from various cars, even dethroning them, even above its class, and when now the latest 911 Turbo S becomes a spectator, we know it’s going to be fun.

We’ve already established that the Porsche 911 Turbo S of the 992 generation is a fast car, says the article’s author. It can run from speed 0 to 62 miles per hour (100 kilometers per hour) in just 2.5 seconds and go up to 124 mph (200 km/h) in 8 seconds. It’s crazy, but not surprising, especially coming from Porsche’s flagship.

However, this latest sprint from Carwow, UK, is not one of those races. This time around, we saw the latest 911 Turbo S being the slowest in a three-way match, something we wouldn’t think we’d say before. That’s because the 911 Turbo S here is not competing against ‘regular’ vehicles. One is a Red Bull RB7 Formula 1 Car that weighs just 650 kg (1,433 pounds). Even better, former Formula 1 driver David Coulthard is in charge, controlling the 750 hp (559 kW) 2.4-litre V8 engine revving up to 18,000 rpm.

The other is the least powerful, but by no means lazy. It’s a BMW M1000RR superbike, powered by a 999cc four-cylinder engine that produces 212 hp (158 kW) and 88.3 lb-ft (113 Nm) of torque. Don’t forget, however, that the bike weighs just 432 pounds (192 kg) without the rider.

That said, the 911 Turbo S is obviously at a disadvantage, especially in terms of weight/power ratio. And as seen now in the video, he lost and became a spectator in this Formula 1 car versus superbike spectacle. It’s not a surprise, but you can watch the video at the top of this page to see how far the difference was.
