Mid-Engine Madness – Lamborghini Gallardo vs Ford GT

December 10th, 2019

The often-overlooked Ford GT was designed to beat up on Italian supercars. Skillfully and painfully developed, it has evolved into one of the most sophisticated – and intimidating – of all the American automobiles. The Joyride Ford GT is well equipped with a 5.4-liter supercharged V8 engine. It is capable of producing 600hp and has a manual transmission. It outweighs the Technocraft Gallardo by several hundred pounds (3,485/2,900) but has been professionally tuned and has a custom exhaust.

Technocraft Lamborghini Gallardo is powered by a naturally aspirated 4.9-liter V10 that can make 520hp. This unit has an E-Gear transmission and weighs 2,900-pounds. Technocraft has also provided lightweight (carbon-fiber) body panels, seats and air intake components for this one-of-a-kind supercar. Another key advantage for the Lamborghini is an all-wheel drive setup versus rear-wheel drive for the GT.

Today’s contest will take place at the El Toro Airfield in Irvine, California.

The first contest is going to be a 0 to 100 to 0 event. Let’s drop in and see who takes the initial advantage.
