Before it actually went into production, rumors varied regarding how much power the HEMI V8 would actually put down in the Ram TRX and everyone knew to expect some type of detuned rating. Thankfully, FCA only cut a handful of horses, allowing this full-size pickup to still put down a monster 702 hp (711 ps).
The Lamborghini Huracan meanwhile is a whole different animal. This EVO RWD spec was unveiled back in January of last year as a successor to the LP580-2 model. It also came with the carmaker’s P-TCS (Performance Traction Control System), meant to ensure that torque wouldn’t get cut off abruptly. Unfortunately, the engine was detuned to 602 hp (610 ps), making the EVO RWD slower to 60 mph than the standard Huracan EVO. Make no mistake, the Lambo would absolutely crush that TRX under normal circumstances.
Of course, these weren’t normal circumstances. This particular Ram TRX was tuned to produce 900 whp, or roughly 1,000 hp at the crank.
The two raced three times, with the truck messing up the launch on the third attempt. What’s fascinating though is that the TRX won the first two races – although not by a large margin. What an absolute beast of a truck.
