The world's most expensive cars are rarely up against one another on a drag strip, but here's a feast for the eyes! From the Bugatti Chiron versus the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ, and the Koenigsegg One:1 against the Pagani Zonda Cinque, to putting my own McLaren Senna and Mercedes SLS AMG Black Series against one another; it's all here on the runway at Gstaad Airport as part of the Supercar Owners Circle weekend!
The Supercar Owners Circle weekend in Gstaad, Switzerland sees the most exclusive and rare cars in the world in attendance, with towards 100 hypercars featuring just about every model of Bugatti, Koenigsegg, Pagani and more. Going flat out we have everything from the Chiron to LaFerrari, and One:1 to Zonda Cinque, mixed in with the Carrera GT, GFG Style 2030, Veyron Vitesse, and of course the likes of the Regera flat out. Obviously the loudest of the bunch is the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ, trying its luck against a Bugatti Chiron!
In attendance at SOC with two of the Shmeemobiles, the McLaren Senna and Mercedes SLS AMG Black Series, it is of course a must that we put the two up against one another to show the difference between a 'fast car' and a 'really fast car'. Giving the SLS BS a small head start, being piloted by @benzeneben, the 800hp of the Senna ultimately causes an obliteration as it flies by on the way to 270km/h (168mph). It must be said though, that the SLS sounds the absolute part thanks to the RENNtech R1 modifications.

Drag racing is no easy task, especially with just one go in a high pressure environment. This is not a competitive and fully prepared head to head, but rather some fun during the SOC weekend. In many cases the drivers are learning their cars or doing a launch for the first time, these are privately owned vehicles to the most part and it's absolutely fantastic to see so many owners being happy to use their vehicles and for them to be shared with the audience!
Thanks for watching, Tim
