The randomness of the competitors is one of the best aspects of the drag racing realm. And the sprinting battle we're here to deliver today is the perfect example of this, with the race pitting a stock Lamborghini Huracan against a heavily modded 930-generation Porsche 911.
The Lamborghini Huracan is one hell of a tricky machine. For one thing, since it packs a naturally aspirated motor in this age of forced induction, it might fool one in terms of its drag racing might. Nevertheless, the Raging Bull musn't be taken for anything else than a sprinting monster, with the car having managed to perform the quarter-mile run in 10.4 seconds. And yes, we're talking about a stock toy, namely the LP610-4 model (guessing its output is not too difficult).

As for the Zuffenahausen machine we have here, this has long left is factory state behind.

To be more precise, the rear section of the German toy packs a built 3.4-liter air-cooled motor that works with a Garrett GT400 turbo and an E85 setup, among others.As for the output of the boxer engine, the motor deliver around 700 hp at the crank. Alas, the unit has to work with a four-speed manual.

The Porscha and the Lambo got together at the track and engaged in rolling start drag races - with the driver aiming to make sure a clear winner was established, the two battled on two separate occasions, kicking off the hostilities at 40 mph.

Now, as you'll notice in the piece of footage at the bottom of the page, the manual tranny proved to be quite a drawback and we can't help wondering if the driver made the most out of the situation.

You'll notice the car losing time as the power flow is interrupted, but also falling below the boost rev range during each shift. Then again, this kind of action only makes the race more enticing.

It's worth noticing that the 930 also duked it out with a Mercedes-AMG GT R (yes, the Affalterbach tool came in factory form).
