Subscribe now: http://smarturl.it/autocar - McLaren 720S Spider vs BMW S 1000 RR vs Ariel Atom 4 drag race: Summer is coming and the weather is warm enough to drive with the wind in your hair, or across your helmet or even bouncing off your baldy head. So what’s the fastest way to go in a straight line without a roof but with numberplate on the back? For 2019, BMW’s superbike, the S1000RR, has been redeveloped to be lighter, more powerful and even cleverer than ever before. Ariel’s fourth Atom puts over 300bhp from a Honda Civic Type R engine through the back wheels and weighs little over 500kg. The 720S has monstered everything to 60mph recently, including a Senna in an Autocar video, but will it keep its crown as the drag race king, being 49kg heavier in Spider form? Matt Prior finds out.
