Although the two vehicles in this video are different - one’s a coupe while the other is a roadster - the Lamborghini Aventador and the Mercedes SLS AMG Roadster can still be considered two of the most amazing supercars currently on the market. Hennessey Performance obviously feels this statement is accurate since they decided to pit the two cars against each other on a spicy 1/4 mile dragstrip race.

You’ll have to watch the video to see who wins the race, but we’ll give you some details to help you out. The Aventador is powered by a 6.5-liter V12 engine that delivers a total of 700 HP and sprints the car from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.9 seconds. The SLS AMG Roadster, on the other hand, is powered by a 6.3-liter V8 engine with 563 HP and can go from 0 to 60 mph in just 4 seconds.

They made the Roadster more competent on that video. It’s a nice video anyway. smiley

Competing against Aventador is already a big thing for this Roadster. The truth I’m also amazed with the performance of the roadster.

All the specifications and performance output is in favor of the Aventador.

I’ll go with the Aventador for sure. I know that you guys are already informed that this Aventador is one of the most powerful cars around the world in terms of the extreme performances.

That’s unfair, they have competed in the two brands on a different segment, but I enjoyed the rest of the video showing the powerful moves and acceleration of the both vehicles.

For me, the roadster is most admirable rather than Aventador. Though the Aventador is better on all numbers, the comfort is found in the roadster of Mercedes.

It’s a great battle of the segment. I’ll go with the coupe since we already knew from the start that the Aventador is the powerful sports car in the world.

It’s now apparent what a turbocharged engine does to a car; as a result much more consumers have liked it. I’m going to like them both though they are on the different segment. It’s not even surprising that the increase is sky-high.
