Lamborghini Aventador S Drag Races Audi R8 V10 Plus with Surprise Ending

The relationship between Audi and Lamborghini is more than a bit complicated. Sure, the Volkswagen Group, who owns the Sant'Agata Bolognese automaker via the German company, has worked hard to ensure that the two brands don't step on each other's toes, while also gifting the Raging Bull with enough bespoke goodies to keep its identity alive. However, there are certain loopholes in the system and we're here to show you one of them.

We're referring to a drag race between a Lamborghini Aventador S and an Audi R8 V10 Plus - both are the models you'll currently find in a showroom.

Allow us to start by mentioning that the Ingolstadt supercar did come with a few mods, so the point we have in the intro might sound like a bit of a stretch.

Nevertheless, it's worth mentioning that comparing the stock incarnations of the supercars reveals the gap between them isn't nearly as large as you'd expect simply by focusing on their appearance. After all, while the role of the Lambo is to make one weak at the knees via single glance, the R8 is the definition of understatement.

Regardless, the two got together in Germany, meeting on the Weeze airfield, where they took part in a drag racing event.

The Audi and the Lamborghini went for a standing start race and this is where things got interesting - it seems like neither of the two used the Launch Control feature, with the drivers simply kicking it from idle when the time was right.

If you happen to be in a rush, feel free to jump to the 4:50 point of the video for the race mentioned above. Nevertheless, you should know that the clip also packs extra sprinting action, so you might want to see what happens before the R8 and the Aventador S duke it out.
