Ariel Atom V8 vs 600bhp rallycross Citroen DS3 vs BMW HP4 superbike drag race

 Which is faster? An Ariel Atom V8 track day toy, BMW HP4 superbike or a rallycross Citroen DS3 with 600bhp?

Here we have three completely different ways of going extremely quickly in a straight line. Time for a drag race then. So what are the contenders? There’s the one-wheel drive BMW HP4 superbike, which arguably requires the most skill to extract speed from but has a ludicrous 757bhp/tonne power-to-weight ratio. Then there’s the two-wheel drive Ariel Atom V8 with 748bhp/tonne and the Citroen DS3 Rallycross car with only 577bhp/tonne but all-important four-wheel drive. Oh, and did we mention it’s wet?
