While the Lamborghini Huracan delivers 90 hp less than the larger and V12-powered Aventador, acceleration tests have shown that in the right conditions, it can be quicker. As a matter of fact, 2.6 second sprint times to 100 km/h from zero have been recorded for the Italian marque’s ‘entry-level’ supercar.
The main reason why the Huracan is so fast off the line is due to its all-wheel drive system and for the first time for Lamborghini, a quick-shifting seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. In order to test out the Huracan’s performance, a gloss black example was recently pitted against a Ferrari 458 Italia at the drag strip.
Compared to the Huracan, the 458 Italia delivers 562 hp, is rear wheel drive and also includes a seven-speed DCT. As the video shows however, the 458 Italia, undeniably one of Ferrari’s finest ever cars, is unable to match its Sant’Agata rival in terms of its quarter mile time and trap speed.
