The latest example of this comes from a pair of performance machines that couldn’t have been more different, a Lamborghini Huracan and a Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat.

The two have recently traveled to Mexico for a war, with the pair battling it out all night. Taking advantage of the softer legal pressure on street racing, these drivers were determined to find out which of the two symbols of going fast is better at the velocity game.

Both cars come in stock condition, which means the considerably lighter Huracan’s 610 hp and 413 lb-ft (560 Nm) battled the chunky Charger’s 707 ponnies and 650 lb-ft (880 Nm) of twist.

After all, he did show up at the fight in a creation worth $260,000, while his opponent has only spent $70,000 on his Dodge, be it with a Hellcat badge and a broken headlight. Heck, even the aural side of the battle would have us worried if the Lambo’s keys were in our hands.
