Who will win – Mercedes-AMG GT R or Lamborghini Huracan?

July 25, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

Enthusiasts from the Track Day YouTube channel decided to check who will be faster – the German Mercedes-AMG GT-R coupe or the Italian Lamborghini Huracan supercar. If we compare the passport data of the car with the results of the races, then the conclusions are not so unambiguous.

We have no doubt that most people know that the German Mercedes-AMG GT-R sports coupe and the Italian Lamborghini Huracan supercar are very powerful and fast cars. However, which of them will be faster in a straight line race? A video has appeared on the Track Day YouTube channel that tries to answer this question.

It is important to note that Mercedes and Lamborghini are, in fact, completely different sports cars.

The sports coupe from the German brand with its 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 can develop a maximum of 577 horsepower. Unlike the Lamborghini car, the AMG coupe also has a proven front-engine and rear-wheel drive combination. While the performance figures speak for themselves, the AMG engine has a very refined character with enormous power but very “modest” noise.

Meanwhile, Lamborghini is a completely different car. The Italian supercar boasts a naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V10 with a very loud exhaust. The Lambo V10 engine delivers over 600 hp, with power sent to all four wheels. It would seem that with all the steering wheels and the mid-engine arrangement of the engine, it is already possible to draw a conclusion about who will be able to win the race.

Throughout the video we are shown several races. While the Lambo’s vehicle has a clear advantage according to the passport data, there is not much difference between the two vehicles in all three races.

Strangely, none of the races take place right away, and we would love to know what benefits Lamborghini’s AWD system can bring to the Huracan.
