For any automobile geek, this is the ultimate race. A Formula One car, a superbike, three super cars and a F-16 jet faced off against each other in Istanbul to see which of them was the fastest.

The four drivers raced next to each other on a 400-metre-long runway as a fighter jet and private jet raced next to them on parallel runways at Istanbul’s new international airport, prior to its official opening in October, Euronews reported. The unique race was hosted in Turkey’s capital at an aviation, space and technology festival.
