Lamborghini Huracan vs. Dodge SRT Viper T/A

May 20th, 2015

Two things about the Bay area: it is very windy there most of the time and they know how to host a spectacular supercar event. The Bay Area Racing Channel presents this awesome video (if you are a Lamborghini fan) of a Huracan absolutely annihilating a SRT Viper T/A. In all fairness the Viper never seems to gain traction in the right lane, but that is all part of drag racing, right? Despite similar horsepower ratings between the two cars (610 for the Huracan and 640 for the Viper), the Lambo appears to dominate this contest. Potential advantages for the Read More

The Koenigsegg Agera N, shown in this video, has been modified from stock. It features Read More

200+MPH Street Racing Texas Style

April 24th, 2015

It has been said that everything is bigger in Texas. While we don’t condone street racing, the level of street racing horsepower displayed in this video is monstrous. On the one hand, we have a highly modified Lamborghini Gallardo advertising the capability to produce 1750-horsepower. In lane two, we have a similarly equipped Nissan GT-R boasting over 1500-horsepower. Can a lowly Nissan hold its own against this legendary Italian? Underground Racing (Charlotte, N.C.) has worked their magic on the Lambo. Beginning with extensive engine upgrades and a pair of twin billet 62-millimeter turbochargers, Underground Racing treated the Gallardo to a Read More

Ferrari 458 Spider vs. Lamborghini Super Trofeo Stradale Roll Racing

April 20th, 2015

This is the automotive equivalent of an Italian civil war. Take a look at this rolling closed track race between a 2015 Ferrari 458 Spider and a 2012 Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Super Trofeo Stradale. The two supercars are nearly the exact same color. In short, they look alike, sound alike; they even have a similar power-to-weight-ratio. The Ferrari is equipped with a direct fuel injected and naturally aspirated 4.5-liter V8 that cranks out 596-horsepower at a whopping 9,000 RPMs. The Lambo uses a much larger 5.2-liter V10 to extrapolate 570-horsepower at 8,000 RPMs. Both cars are electronically relegated to a Read More

2015 Lamborghini Aventador 750-4 SV

March 4th, 2015

This raging bull, built with a carbon-fiber monocoque cabin, naturally aspirated V12 engine, and magneto-rheological front and rear suspension, may just be the most capable Lamborghini supercar ever built.

Challenger Hellcat takes on the Lamborghini Aventador in a Street Race

February 11th, 2015

Watch a 707HP Dodge Challenger Hellcat take on the 700HP Lamobrighini Aventador during a roll race.   While the horsepower numbers are similar at around 700HP each,  the Hellcat carries an additional 400 pounds of weight over the Aventador.   However, that weight penalty doesn’t seem to matter as per the video.  While it’s a close race, you can clearly the Aventaor’s single clutch 7 speed ISR transmission holding the car back. Of course this was the Hellcat’s race, a roll race, negating the Aventador’s all wheel drive launching capabilities which allow 0-60 MPH in under 3 seconds, something the Hellcat can’t handle unless it’s Read More

February 7th, 2015

This 2012 Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Super Trofeo Stradale set a new record for a stock Gallardo racing down the 1/4 mile running an impressive 11.1 @ 132 MPH.  To reduce aerodynamic drag the large Super Trofeo wing was removed which bumped up the trap speeds from 127 MPH to 132 MPH and dropped about 1/10 of the 1/4 mile ET. The LP570-4 Super Trofeo Stradale was Lamborghini’s lightest Gallardo produced and weighed in at 3,348 pounds on the track scales even though Lamborghini quotes 2,950 pounds.   That puts the power to weight ratio at 5.8 pounds per HP for the STS, the same Read More
