This TT Huracan debuted with a bang - No, the UR 2, as the tuner likes to call its newborn baby, didn’t debut with fireworks or a misfire. Still, it was one fiery beginning, as the machine was brought to the Texas Invitation event, where it met an absolutely insane 2,000 HP club. From a Viper to an Audi R8, there were a few cars here that, theoretically, matched the Lambo’s output.
Nevertheless, there was one particular GT-R which just wouldn’t let the UR 2 be. We’re talking about AMS Performance’s Alpha Omega, the car that battles for the GT-R quarter mile record.
AMS claim they’re aiming for similar performance this year, but with superior reliability. They expect the new billet block that packs 4 liters, not 3.8, to help with the latter part.
Other than that, they’re running the same twin-turbo and intercooler setup as last year, so they’re quoting power at around 2,000 hp at the wheels.
We don’t quite buy the performance leveling, not when the Alpha Omega managed to beat the Lambo in a rolling race. The difference was marginal, but still, Godzilla won.
However, the sheer fact that the freshly-tuned Lamborghini managed to keep up with a GT-R that's well into its development cycle says a lot about the future of this car.
In case you don’t want to watch the entire video and jump straight to the clash of the titans, the 4:30 mark should cut it.
PS: isn’t it ironical how sometimes the same people that praise the Raging Bull for remaining the only natural-aspiration-only major supercar builder, fall for TT monsters such as the one we have here?
