And I’m starting to enjoy these videos because I’re always trying to see if I can figure out the result by just looking at the specifications of the vehicles involved. And this time we look at a 740 horsepower Lamborghini Aventador SV that goes up to a set 780 horsepower Porsche 91
But let’s take a quick look at some more details for the two cars. They both put down the power through all four wheels, but the Lamborghini uses a naturally aspirated V12, while the Porsche 991.2 has a six-cylinder boxer engine with two turbos. But Porsche also has an ES750 performance package and weighs in at 1,600 kg. Lamborghini is only slightly lighter, with 1,525 kg, but it also has less power.
You should never overlook torque figures either. The Lamborghini comes with 507 lb-ft (687 Nm) of torque from the factory. The stock now delivers 991.2 Turbo S 700 Nm of torque between 2100 and 4250 rpm. But the 911 Turbo S that was presented for the test has received some improvements, and although official torque figures have not been revealed, I will bet that it now has at least 812 Nm of torque available.
So the conclusion I reached before watching the race itself was that Porsche will take the lead and be first. The two cars will undergo four different tests: 0 to 60 mph (97 km / h), quarter-mile (402 meters) races, head-to-head drag races and a rolling race. For the first run of the day, the SV takes 3.01 seconds to beat 60 km / h, while the Turbo S does so in just 2.25 seconds, setting a new show record.
For a quarter mile (402 meters) race, the Lamborghini completes the job in 10.91 seconds, with an exit speed of 127.37 mph (204.98 km / h), which is not half bad. But Porsche goes back in and claims dominance by finishing the race in 9.73 seconds, with an exit speed of 143.41 mph (230.79 km / h)! Now it’s probably safe to assume that Lamborghini is not going to come out on top in any of the tests to follow either.
They grab it again, but this time the two cars are side by side. As expected, Porsche easily takes out the Lamborghini at the end of the run. They decide to go into rematch, and although the Aventador driver gets an advantage for the starting procedure, it still fails to keep up with the turbocharged 911. Even with all its power, the Lamborghini just can not keep up with the German-built supercar, and the rolling race gives the same conclusion as the previous tests. This tuned Porsche 911 Turbo S is just so much faster in a straight line!
