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

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

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

January 21st, 2015

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
