Looks like the good guys behind the wheels of the Lamborghinis, Ferraris, Porsches and other exotics of Bangalore have decided to kick things up a notch with their own VMax 300 on a private Air Strip.

First up? LP610 vs LP700!

This, by far, is the best one ever! The 630hp 911 Turbo S takes on the "big" bull and voila, the Aventador is still crossing the finish line! Amazing stuff!

Here's another, 458 Speciale vs a stock 458.



Mods: I think it is better we move these videos to a new thread. This is the first time something of this kind is being done in India AFAIK. Will get better visibility.

Here's the lineup:

I am not sure if I am understanding it correctly. The Huracan seen here just has the exhaust on it? Rest everything stock? Because it just beat the aventador with the same exhaust? How is that possible?

Power to weight and we don't know reaction times.

Also this is the roadster, so add approx 50kgs weight penalty.

However with the coupe the results were different.

The Huracan happens to be faster than the Aventador. The boffins at Lambo have done some crazy stuff to it making a stock Huracan faster than the Aventador
There are many other videos proving the same online.

Heavier aventador runs the older gen Haldex IV 4WD system.

Although ISR still shifts in 50 milliseconds, its no match for the dual clutch transmission.

Even in the Ferrari stable, the 488 eats the F12 alive.

Still, check the video above, stock vs stock.

I beg to disagree here a little bit.

I do agree with AK and Ash_vtec that Huracan has a lot going for it technology wise, considering the gearbox, 4 wheel drive system and weight, thats because the Aventador is a MY2011 vehicle and the Huracan is MY2015. Technological advancements happen every day in the modern times.

However, the Aventador has almost a 100 more horses. As the video from Dragtimes.info as posted by Ash_vtec suggests, in spite of a slightly slower reaction time of the Aventador driver, he was still able to recover from it to cross the finishline ahead of the Huracan.

The gentleman driving the Huracan in the video from Exotic Automotive clearly has superior driving skills than the one in the Aventador Roadster. Not a fair comparison IMO.

Also, having driven both the Huracan and the Aventador on the limit, i personally feel the acceleration is definitely slightly more brutal in the bigger Lamborghini.

It is a brand new engine introduced in the Aventador in 2011, not something carried over from the previous gen Lamborghini V12's. With more horsepower and may be a twin clutch on the facelift, it should blow the pants off everything around it IMO.
