Drag Race – Aventador SV vs. 911 Turbo S

July 20th, 2017

What’s not to love about a drag race between a pair of supercars? Nothing – especially if the two cars in question are the Lamborghini Aventador SV and the Porsche 911 Turbo S.

As far as we know, the feature cars are in stock trim and are driven by their respective owners. They (the cars, at least) are pretty evenly matched and this should make for an interesting series of contests.

In an effort to establish exactly which of these two elite automobiles is superior, this clip actually documents multiple drag racing and roll racing runs. You don’t want to miss it. The sights and sounds are spectacular.

The rear-engine Porsche is equipped with a turbocharged Boxer 6 3.8-liter engine that produces 580hp and 553 lb.-ft. of torque. It is mated to a manual transmission and is laid out in an all-wheel drive configuration. It boasts a top speed of 208 mph and can blast from 0 to 60 mph in a mere 2.8-seconds.

The Lamborghini is also an all-wheel drive car with an automated dual-clutch transmission. It garners power from a 6.5-liter, naturally aspirated, V12 engine that is capable of manufacturing 740hp (at a screeching 8,400 RPM) and 507 lb.-ft. of torque at 5,500 RPM. It can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 2.7-seconds and has an alleged top speed of 217 mph.

So, it would seem that the Italians have the edge in this series but we all know that the individual power-to-weight ratio specs will factor in. Check out the video to find out which car proves to be the most capable.
