Drag Race Sees Huracan LP 580-2 Take On 911 Turbo S

If you’ve got two supercars that were inherently built to rival each other and they both have the same amount of horsepower, there’s no way you can predict the outcome.

There are quite a few differences between the Huracan LP 580-2 and the 911 Turbo S, but also a couple of important similarities, starting with the 580 PS produced by their engines. They also both feature 7-speed dual clutch gearboxes and…that’s pretty much it in terms of what makes them similar.

Whereas the LP 580-2 is a rear-wheel driven supercar, the 911 Turbo S sends its power to all four wheels. Moreover, when it comes to torque, Turbo S boasts no fewer than 750 Nm (553 lb-ft) to the Lambo’s 540 Nm (398 lb-ft). Being naturally aspirated explains the Huracan’s deficit in pulling power when compared to the twin-turbo Porsche, however the Lambo tips the scales at 1,518 kg (3,346 lbs), which makes it lighter than the 1,675 kg (3,692 lbs) 911.

On paper, the Huracan needs 3.4 seconds to hit 100 km/h (62 mph) from a standstill, while the 911 Turbo S needs just 2.9 seconds. Same thing with their top speed – the Porsche will go 10 km/h (6.2 mph) faster once it maxes out at 330 km/h (205 mph).

So yes, the German supercar does have torque and traction on its side, but this drag race features a rolling start, which levels out the playing field a bit.
