It’s the Italian bull taking on the British whippersnapper

When you’re lining up a drag race between two supercars, it’s always best to have both cars be equal in terms of their power and performance numbers. Not only does it make for an even race, but it also helps answer questions on which car is faster to 60 mph or which car is faster to get to its top speed. In the case of this race between the McLaren 650S Spider and the Lamborghini Huracán, all the variables are there, except for the fact that the McLaren doesn’t have a roof.

Still, the two cars are considered direct rivals, and the while the McLaren has to make do with a retractable roof, it makes up for it by having more power than the Huracán. The 650S has 640 horsepower and 500 pound-feet of torque whereas the Huracán has 610 horsepower and 413 pound-feet of twist. Based on these numbers, the 650S has the advantage. That said, the Huracán is all-wheel drive whereas the 650S is rear-wheel drive. That helps the Lamborghini launch off the line quicker than the McLaren. It’s a clean and even race through and through, right?

Well, check out the video to see how the actual race unfolded. I’m not going to spill the details on who won, but based on the details about both cars, don’t be surprised to see, well, a few surprises. In the end, it really doesn’t matter because both the McLaren 650S and the Lamborghini Huracán are awesome supercars. You could pick one and I’d be happy with the other. It’s just that sometimes, there’s a need for bragging rights and in this case, the winner certainly deserved it.
