Lamborghini Aventador S LP740-4 Hits the Drag Strip
Aventador takes some losses, but it sounds incredible while storming down the track.
The video above comes to us from the Gumbal YouTube channel and it features a Lamborghini Aventador S LP740-4 working out on the drag strip. The V12-powered Raging Bull is a rolling work of art, screaming down the track as it wins and loses races against some incredible competition.
Aventador S LP740-4
The Aventador S LP740-4 is the highest-performance version of the range-topping Lamborghini. The 6.2-liter V12 tucked under the rear engine cover delivers 730 horsepower and 509 lb-ft of torque, making this one of the most powerful road cars in the world. Best off all, a dual-clutch transmission and an advanced all-wheel-drive system work together to put all of that power to the ground, making this one crazy-quick supercar, even at nearly 3,900 pounds.
The video above showcases the Aventador S taking on a handful of competitors on the drag strip, including a pair of Audi RS3 Sportbacks, an Audi R8 V10 Plus and a Porsche 911 GT3 RS.
The RS3 Sportbacks each come with 400 horsepower and 354 lb-ft of torque, with an advanced all-wheel-drive system and a curb weight of roughly 3,329 pounds. The Porsche 911 GT3 RS has a 500 horsepower and 338 lb-ft of torque, rear-drive and a curb weight of just over 3,100 pounds and the R8 V10 Plus has 602 horsepower and 413 lb-ft of torque from a Lamborghini V10, along with an advanced all-wheel-drive system and a curb weight of about 3,650 pounds.
So, while the Lamborghini has far more power than the competitors, it also weighs a fair deal more.
Hitting the Track
After roughly 70 seconds of footage of the Aventador S at rest, the V12-powered monster hits the track. The first competitor is an Audi RS3 Sportsback, but it is barely a challenge. The second race was also against an RS3, but in that second race, the Audi got a bunch better start and the Lamborghini failed to close the gap before the finish line.
Next, the LP740-4 lined up with the 911 GT3 RS, but when the rear-drive Porsche smoked the tires shortly after the start, the Aventador got the easy win.
Finally, the Aventador S takes on an Audi R8 V10, which is powered by a Lamborghini drivetrain. The Audi gets out first and while the LP740-4 closes as the two rocket down-track, the R8 gets the win.
