Although the new Lamborghini Huracan is an amazing piece of engineering, Volkswagen Automotive Group has another slightly more affordable sports car that can give the Italian bull a run for its money: the Porsche 911 Turbo S. A new video shows the new powerful sports car squaring off in a drag race showing quarter-mile times and trap speeds.
Power for the mid-engine Lamborghini Huracan LP 610-4 comes from a naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V-10 rated at 602 hp and 413 lb-ft of torque, while the rear-engine Porsche 911 Turbo S is powered by a twin-turbo 3.8-liter flat-six making 560 hp and 516 lb-ft. Both cars channel power to all four wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.
In our testing, the Huracan hit 60 mph in 2.8 seconds and finished the quarter-mile in 10.6 seconds at 132.8 mph, while the Turbo S did the deeds in 2.6 seconds and 10.9 seconds at 123.7 mph, respectively. With the cars being so close, anything is possible in a street-style drag race.
Check out the video below to see which VW Group supercar comes out on top in this drag race, and also to see how quickly the Lamborghini Huracan and Porsche 911 Turbo S can cover the quarter-mile.
