Lamborghini Huracán or McLaren 720S, who is faster?June 16, 2018
Which power plant will be more powerful? Atmospheric V10 from the Italian Lamborghini or V8 biturbo from the British McLaren?
Currently, the McLaren 720s (on the main photo) is to some degree a “unicorn” among supercars – this car has an amazing ratio of incredible performance and relatively affordable price in relation to other representatives of this class of cars. Many car critics were very flattering about the McLaren 720s, in particular for its dynamic qualities.
A group of enthusiasts who have a YouTube channel TheSUPERCARDRIVER have decided to check whether the British McLaren 720s, which is equipped with a powerful atmospheric V8, can beat its Italian colleague Lamborghini Huracán in a fair fight. As a discipline was chosen to race in a straight line for a while – drag racing.
The sports car Lamborghini has a 5.2-liter supercharged V10, producing a maximum of 630 horsepower. The maximum speed is 324 km / h. The 7-speed gearbox with dual clutch transmits torque directly to both axles. In turn, his British colleague McLaren 720S has under the hood an equally powerful 4.0-liter V8 biturbo. Despite the fact that this engine has two cylinders less, its maximum capacity is 710 hp, and the maximum possible speed is 341 km / h, which is 17 hp. more than an Italian. In the case of the car from McLaren, the 7-speed transmission with 2 clutches transmits the torque only to the rear wheels.
While the sports car from McLaren clearly has an advantage in the power of the engine, the full drive Lamborghini Huracán will help him get the lead at the beginning of the race – that’s exactly what happened. Lamborghini was able to break away at the beginning of the race, but in the end, the British 720S was able not only to catch up with the Italian, but to arrive to the finish line a little earlier.
Not so long ago it became known that McLaren announced the debut of the supercar 570LT on June 28.
