Lamborghini Aventador S LP740-4 Hits the Drag Strip

By -

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.

Competition

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.
