Supercharged Lamborghini Huracans Put Up An Impressive Fight Against Bugatti Veyron

In stock form, the Huracan is one of the fastest-accelerating production cars on the planet. Strap a supercharger onto the 5.2-liter V10, and you have the makings of a hypercar slayer.

In a bid to show just how capable supercharged Huracans can be, Famous Motorsports in the United States brought a pair of its vehicles to a half mile drag racing event. The duo were pitted against a rare Bugatti Veyron Sang Noir and performed valiantly, to say the least.

In one of the first runs, featuring a green Huracan going up against the Veyron, we can see the Italian supercar giving the 987 hp Veyron an excellent run for its money. However, the competition heated up when a blue Huracan was given a car length’s head start and lined up alongside the Bugatti.

Off the line, the two set off with minimal fuss thanks to their all-wheel drive systems. As the race continues, the cars go toe-to-toe and, at the end of it all, cross the finish line with speeds neck to neck: the Veyron was clocked at 172 mph (276 km/h), while the Huracan roared home at 171 mph (275 km/h).

Of course, supercharging a Huracan is much more affordable than picking up a Bugatti. On the other hand, those well-off to consider buying a Veyron don’t have to face such dilemmas that concern us mere mortals: if they want, they can buy the Bugatti and the Huracan… and whatever else they fancy, too.

    The lambo got the hole shot, and the Veyron still won. So, if they did a even start, the Veyron would crush the Huracan.
