The Hoonigan team was back to the drag strip for another edition of ‘This vs That’. This time, the guys brought a 2020 Lamborghini Huracan EVO to take on a 2018 Wolf GB08 TSC-LT, which happened to be the fastest car at this year’s Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. Does the Huracan EVO have any chance to win here?

The Lamborghini Huracan EVO is a fast car, but its rival here makes it look like a Dacia Sandero.

The Huracan EVO is powered by a 5.2-liter, V-10 engine that makes 640 ponies.

It is mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox and an all-wheel-drive system. The supercar weighs 3,645 pounds.

The Wolf GB08 TSC-LT is powered by a 2.0-liter, Honda K20 engine that makes 650 ponies. A six-speed sequential gearbox powers the rear wheels. Also, the car weighs just 1,300 pounds

The car on the other side is the Wolf GB08 TSC-LT.

It features a 2.0-liter, Honda K20 engine that puts out a mind-boggling 650 horses.

A six-speed sequential gearbox routes power to the rear wheels exclusively. The car weighs just 1,300 pounds; less than one-third the weight of the Italian bull. Also, this car was the fastest at this year’s Pikes Peak International Hill Climb in the Unlimited Division. It clocked a time of 5:55.246! Can the winner of this race be any clearer?

And The Games Begin

In the first standing drag race, the Lamborghini was obliterated by the Wolf to the 1,000 feet distance

In the first standing drag race, the Lamborghini was neck-and-neck with the Wolf, but that was pretty much the end for it. The Wolf obliterated its rival from Sant’Agata Bolognese and left it in the dust to win this round of the 1,000-foot race.

For the second race, the team decided to give the Lamborghini some sort of advantage. So, it came in rolling at 20 mph whereas the Wolf started from a dig. The latter didn’t have the best launch, but it got very close to the Lamborghini by the end. In fact, the Huracan won this race just by the nose.

The third race was with the same conditions as the second, only this time, the Wolf got a great launch. This resulted in it beating the Lamborghini to win 2-1 in the best of three series

They repeated the race again, and this time, the Wolf had a much better launch. The Lamborghini couldn’t keep up and the ‘That’ won the race to claim a 2-1 victory over the Huracan, despite the head start that the EVO got.
