Supercar Race – McLaren GT vs Lamborghini Huracan

Supercar Race – McLaren GT vs Lamborghini Huracan

February 15, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

Who will win the race in a straight line – the British Gran Turismo class supercar or the classic Italian Lamborghini Huracan with all-wheel drive? This is precisely the question the organizers of this race tried to answer.

  In May last year, the British automaker introduced a new model, which received the laconic designation GT. This is a Gran Turismo class car (literally translated as a great trip). The machine combines McLaren’s penchant for unsurpassed performance with plenty of space in the cabin and all the necessary attributes of comfort.

Under the hood of a McLaren supercar is the 4.0-liter V8 from the more powerful 720S. However, in GT, this engine is equipped with less efficient turbines, reducing power to 620 “horses”. Lamborghini Huracan uses a 5.2-liter V10 rated at 602 bhp. The Italian supercar has a significant advantage – we are talking about all-wheel drive. The British GT has only rear-wheel drive, which may not allow it to cling to the start cover.

 Two supercars compete in four races, in the first of which Lamborghini wins.

He overcame 402 meters in 10.481 seconds at a speed of 210.42 km / h. McLaren showed time of 10.527 seconds at a speed of 217.64 km / h. In the second race, Huracan also won, showing a time of 10.350 seconds and a speed of 211.26 km / h, while the British supercar finished with 10.357 seconds at a speed of 217.71 km / h.

 All-wheel drive supercar from Lamborghini every time won the Briton. McLaren is very slightly behind Lamborghini in every race, although he could have defeated his opponent if he could not have caught the wheels on the asphalt during the start. It will be interesting to see how the McLaren GT shows itself in a race with other supercars.
