McLaren 650S Out-Paces Lamborghini Aventador All The Way To 190+ MPH

Admit it, if the title wouldn’t have given the result away, your money would have been on the 700 HP Lamborghini, wouldn’t it?

Oh come on! Sure it would have! First of all, without checking out the video first, you couldn’t have known for sure that this was a rolling start race – since a standing start would have been more to the Aventador’s liking thanks to its all-wheel drive system.

Then you’ve got the power deficit of roughly 50 HP to consider and a bit more torque (slightly) for the Lambo.

Both cars hit 60 mph (100 km/h) in 3 seconds flat off the line, but that’s under ideal conditions – which aren’t always at your disposal. This is exactly why having an all-wheel driven supercar is awesome..you can trust it a lot more often than you would a RWD one.

But let’s go back a few months to a video we saw of a 650S taking on the Lamborghini Huracan LP610-4. That one did come with a standing start and it made not one bit of difference as the Huracan still got obliterated by the McLaren.

Now, the 650S has the flagship Lambo, the mighty Aventador to worry about. On paper this should be a very close race, despite the McLaren’s weight advantage.

They raced up to speeds of over 190 MPH (305 km/h) before they had to slow down, but here’s the thing: If they had the room to max out, the Aventador would have walked away with this one hands down as its top speed is 350 km/h (217 mph), whereas the 650S can manage about 333 km/h (207 mph).
