While the Ferrari 599 GTO is the hardcore variant of the 599 range and the Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 is the entry-level version from the expanding Aventador range, the two are rivals in every sense of the word. Just which of the two is fastest however?
Well GTboard recently had the opportunity to gather a black 599 GTO and pitted it against an Arancio Argos Lamborghini Aventador on the drag strip. While both cars utilise naturally-aspirated V12 engines, the Aventador manages to pump out 30 hp more thanks to its additional 0.5-litres of capacity.
Due to the Aventador’s all-wheel drive system, it has an obvious acceleration advantage from a standing start. To overcome this significant drivetrain difference, a rolling race was conducted starting from 50 km/h.
We won’t ruin the result but rest assured, it is very, very close!
