Lamborghini Huracan vs McLaren 650S in drag race (video)

There are few things we here at PerformanceDrive love more than watching two exotics racing down a runway, battling for supercar supremacy. And to help you get through the Monday blues, here’s a cracker of just such event.

Lamborghini vs McLaren 650S

The two cars in question, a Lamborghini Huracan and a McLaren 650S, were belted by South African publication Car for your viewing pleasure.

Their performance outputs are very similar, with the Lamborghini producing 449kW and 560Nm from its naturally aspirated V10. Lamborghini claims a 0-100km/h time in 3.2 seconds, with a top speed of more than 325km/h.

The McLaren on the other hand utilises a twin-turbo V8, lifted from the 12C and tuned up to 478kW with 680Nm of torque. The 650S hits 0-100km/h a tenth of a second quicker than the Huracan, at 3.1 seconds, and has a top speed of 333km/h.

What car do you think is quickest? Keep in mind the Lambo has all-wheel drive while the McLaren is rear-wheel drive. Take a look below.
