Speedtail car competed in speed with fighter F-35 (video)


The fastest production car of our timeSpeedtail brand, assembled by McLaren engineers, is capable of speeds up to 405 km / h, exceeding the speed of Formula 1 racing cars. Top Gear host Chris Harris decided to test the car’s ability to compete in speed with the 5th generation F-35 fighter. To do this, between the two masterpieces of engineering, an impromptu contest was held.
