PREVIEW: Volkswagen I.D. R vs McLaren 720s | Top Gear: Series 28

PREVIEW: Volkswagen I.D. R vs McLaren 720s | Top Gear: Series 28

Here’s a preview of Chris Harris testing the mind-bending, physics-altering, kidney-busting Volkswagen I.D. R – the new prototype racer from VW that set the hillclimb record at Goodwood – and the Nürburgring EV lap record – last summer.

And to demonstrate just how fast it is, Harris races it against the (not slow) McLaren 720s.

    And then the mclaren continues doing fast laps while the I.D. goes to the outlet.

    Horrendous sound ….plus it's not a road car so I'm sure it's power to weight ratio is stupid ! Not really a comparison with the 720 s or even a jasco or what have you ! Even though electric cars have been forced down our throats like terrible tasting cough syrup by idiots the run the show , I simply have zero interest in a battery for a engine/ motor ! Keep it !

    F1 would absolutely smash the IDR.
    The IDR was shown to be overheating and losing speed on a longer stint at the Nurburgring.
    The F1 being Hybrid and on another level of cutting edge keeps going at full speed without suffering over heating or loss of power.

    Why did they compare it to the 720s ?
    Didn't they hear about Koenigsegg ? Maybe then the race would've been somewhat balanced.

    No….no… Super car vs super car! This isn't even a fair race! You can't compare a production car to a concept car.

    We all know electric has no top end speed but crazy acceleration from takeoff, this is why the race was short!

    I can bet you have them go around that course, that concept car would not be as spectacular😂, let be realistic and cut the climatic editing

    why do they always race it against cars that aren't that fast like he really should have tested it against a P1 or if we are really getting into it that porche Evo le mans car the other no limit race car
