Jump to 5:52 for the race.

Jump to 8:55 for reliability comments on his very hard used 720S.

Not that a 720s wouldn’t out-drag the 675 anyway, but keep in mind the LT has a lot of aero working against it.

I seem to recall the 675 lost to a 570 in a drag in one of Shmees videos from a couple of years back, the 675 isn’t built for that is it?

Well now if you really see the 675lt and the 720s drag race with really stiff competion, check out Netflix’s Fastest Car Season 2.

A 675 is built for corners, not drag races.

Indeed it was but on a larger circuit like Silverstone the 720s may well be quicker due to its additional power. I even think the 720s has similar downforce, and in track Pack guise the 720s should perform even better as it will be that bit lighter , although not as light as the 675.

On the same tyre a 720 probably would corner quicker than a 675 too....

but in any case the 675 is much the better car to drive imo even if it is slower (corners or straights!)
