Judging by their entirely different status, the Huracan and the 918 Spyder shouldn’t be in the same league, and yet they are.
We don’t normally like spoiling the fun by throwing spoilers at you, but we’ll make an exception on this occasion. As you’ve figured out by now, the Raging Bull left the Porsche behind in this race.
While the Lambo pulled a 10.794 pass at 132.51 mph (213 km/h), the Porsche required 10.966 seconds (at 140.73 mph/227 km/h) for the same job.
How was this possible?First of all, we have to explain these cars were handled by their owners, not professional racing drivers. This is where we need to mention that a racing driver not only delivers blistering times but also shows consistency. That asset is not exactly present here - not when the same 918-driver combination delivered a 10.65s time on the track in the HHHT video.
Then there’s the tech side of the story. As we said during our previous 918 vs. Huracan story, the Porsche can lose its dominating position once it runs out of electron juice, which might have been the case here.
