One of the highlights from the recent StreetCarDrags event was a Lamborghini Aventador LP720-4 Roadster, 1 of 200 made in the world making a few passes down the drag strip at Palm Beach International Raceway. Powered by a screaming 6.5L V12, the LP720-4 prodcues 720HP through a 7 speed ISR transmission along with all wheel drive. While the AWD system didn’t seem to like the super sticky drag strip surface, the LP720-4 still rocketed down the 1/4 mile in 11.3 seconds @ 133.4 MPH. With a better launch we expect mid 10’s with ease. Take a look at the data and videos below. Lamborghini Read More
We’ve got some great video of a Lamborghini Huracan racing a McLaren MP4-12C at PBIR, the first match up of these two cars we’ve seen at the drag strip. The Huracan has a Speedriven tune and ran a very impressive 10.59 @ 129.12 MPH while the McLaren was running an AMS Performance tune and ran a 10.73 @ 134.97, spinning the tires off the line. Earlier in the evening the McLaren ran 10.2 @ 137.4 MPH. Take a look at the video and timeslips below and check back soon for additional videos: Lamborghini Huracan Timeslip Data
Check out this new 2015 Chevrolet Corvette C7 Z06 running against a 2012 Lamborghini LP570-4 Super Trofeo Stradale in a 1st gear roll race. The Corvette is powered by a 6.2L supercharged V8 with 650HP using 7 speed manual transmission along with rear wheel drive. The Lamborghini has a naturally aspirated 5.2L V10 with 570HP along with a 6 speed e-gear transmission and all wheel drive. While the Corvette has more power and torque thanks it’s supercharger, the Lamborghini is a bit lighter and is able two hold it’s own against the new Corvette. This Lambo has previously run 11.2 @ 126.5 Read More
Here is a video of the first real world 1/4 mile run we’ve seen for the all new Lamborghini Huracan. Powered by a 610 horsepower 5.2L V10 along with all wheel drive and a 7 speed dual clutch transmission the Huracan ran an impressive 10.82 @ 132 MPH at Sacramento Raceway Park. The Huracan was clearly using it’s launch control system but appears to bog down off the line due to the sticky track prep and lack of down low torque from it’s naturally aspirated V10. Check out the timeslip data and video below. Lamborghini Huracan Data
Here is a video of a new Tesla Model S P85D with dual motors, all wheel drive and 691HP taking on a 2012 Lamborghini LP570-4 Super Trofeo Stradale powered by a 5.2L V10 and 570HP. The Tesla gets a good start but loses ground fast as it’s power dies off quickly while the Lamborghini runs right past it around 115 MPH. Hopefully Tesla Motors will un-cripple the Tesla P85D soon and release the power and speed that it promised when they initially released the specifications back in October 2014 and started taking orders.
We’ve found some pretty good footage of a new Lamborghini Huracan going heads up against it’s big brother Aventador in Greece. The Huracan with it’s 5.2L V10 and 610HP through a 7 speed dual clutch transmission along with AWD seems to come off a bit softer than it’s larger and more power full Aventador sibling powered by a 6.5L V12 with 700HP and a 7 speed ISR transmission (single clutch). Once both cars are under power the Aventador still walks away from the Huracan a good bit through the 1/4 mile and beyond.
While we’re waiting impatiently for our Tesla Model S P85D to arrive tomorrow, we came across this video of a brand new Model S P85D racing against a Lamborghini Aventador. Take a look at what happens when 691HP of instant electric horsepower and torque goes heads up against a 700HP 6.5L V12 all out exotic super car. Some more Tesla vs the world videos…
We had some time with a Lamborghini Aventador setup with a bolt-on Twin Turbo system built by DLM – Doug Levin Motorsports. While it’s just running a baseline 4psi from it’s twin turbo setup, the sounds and acceleration of a the 6.5L V12 Twin Turbo setup along with super hard hitting 7 speed ISG transmission was a blast to experience. Take a look at the video and pictures below and see how the Aventador did against a tuned McLaren MP4-12C.
Here is a video of at Lamborghini Huracan (610HP) racing a McLaren MP4-12C Spider (616HP) at an airstrip event. Pretty close race even with the McLaren hitting the rev limiter in a few gears. Another video of a Huracan vs a McLaren MP4-12C Coupe
Editor: Rob Persiano Evomsit recently put a new Lamborghini Huracan LP610-4 on their Mustang AWD dyno for some baseline testing before they begin their ECU tuning process. The Huracan is rated by Lamborghini at 610 horsepower with it’s 5.2L V10 along with a 7 speed dual clutch transmission. On the Mustang AWD dyno the Huracan put down 490 horsepower and 353 ft-lbs of torque at the wheels in stock form and picked up another 20HP after the initial tuning by Evomsit.. While all dyno’s can read differently, the numbers seem a bit on the low side, as we tested our Lamborghini Read More
