The team of the BBC's Top Gear have only gone and done it again, staging the ultimate drag race with a McLaren Speedtail, the brand’s first ever hyper GT car against an F35 fighter jet ...

Fans of the show may recall that Richard Hammond raced the RAF in a Bugatti Veyron and lost well, Paddy McGuinness fancied a rematch, so with Chris Harris at the wheel the £1.75 million Speedtail went head to head against a £100 million F35-B Lightning fighter jet for what may be considered one of the most expensive drag race in history.

With a top speed of 252 mph the Speedtail’s hybrid 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8’s 773kW was still no match for the F-35 the latest in Lockheed Martin's arsenal of highly maneuverable fighter jets - but boy is a great fun to watch!
