Together with the tuning company, Daniel Abt is a professional racing driver who currently competes in the Formula E series. As a connoisseur of fine car equipment, his latest video features a quarter-mile drag race between a Lamborghini Aventador SVJ and Porsche 911 GT2 RS.
Keen readers will know that the two vehicles are very close on paper, and they would be right. While the Lambo has slightly more power than the Porsche – 770 horsepower versus 700 horsepower – and four-wheel drive, the German competitor has precision technology on its side. In addition to being lighter, the GT2 RS also has a PDK gearbox that shifts much faster than the single-clutch unit in the Aventador SVJ.
In any case, Lamborghini produced a hard-fought victory in the first race from a standing start. As Porsche began to roll in its rival towards the end, it simply wasn’t enough. Abt was on a tough and unprepared surface, and warmed up his rear tires before the second race to try to find traction earlier – his first sprint to 100 km / h in the first race took a dismal 3.8 seconds.
The second hit gave a completely different result with Porsche finally hooking the tires and producing a convincing victory. After a tough loss, the couple ended the video with a rolling race where Porsche won a tricky victory.
While the GT2 RS often takes some luck for its lack of sound and theater, this video shows that the numbers do not lie. Although the Aventador in the video had an aftermarket Novitec exhaust system, we would be willing not to mention that the V12 engine would still have won even in stock. In any case, the opportunity to drive these cars in full swing on a runway is a victory in itself.
