Here is some sibling V10 rivalry with a brand new Audi R8 drag racing heads up against a Lamborghini LP560-4 at Island Dragway, NJ. Both cars have the same V10 motor, with the Lamborghini LP560-4 putting out 560HP while the Audi gets a slightly detuned version producing 520HP. The difference in horsepower along with the LP560′s lighter weight are clearly demonstrated with the LP560 running 11.7 @ 122 MPH and the Audi R8 running 12.0 @ 116.5 MPH. While the LP560-4 had a much better time and trap speed, it was a very close race to the end as the Audi must have got the jump from the start.
Neither of the cars ran that great as we’ve seen much better runs for both, browse through other times we have for both cars and watch the video below:
