The two beasts duked it out over the weekend, since they met over in Germany, during the Spring Event held on an airfield in Weeze.
The Lambo comes with all-paw hardware, while the GT3 RS is the kind of Neunelfer derivative that only bets on the rear axle. As such, a rolling start would've been the fair choice. Nevertheless, the two engaged in a rolling start battle - we have to mention that the Rennsport Neunelfer did get off the line slightly before its mid-engined rival.
What do the numbers tell us?Based on the independent test performed so far, the Porsche 911 GT3 RS, with its 500 hp motor, needs at least 11.1 seconds to complete the quarter-mile game. As for the 740 hp Lamborghini Aventador S, this can shave a full second off that time.
Then again, those numbers were achieved in ideal conditions, from the track prepping to the drivers' reaction time, so we can't fully rely on them.
As you can imagine, the atmospheric nature of this drag race, means that its aural side is just as impressive as its visual treats. And while the 4.0-liter boxer of the 991.1-generation GT3 RS and the 6.5-liter V12 of the Aventador S are impressive on their own, their duet is the kind that can easily make one weak in the knees.
P.S.: The Aventador S also battles two other Volkswagen Group jewels, namely an Audi RS3 8V and a second-generation Audi R8 V10 Plus. And the latter drag race makes us wonder whether the Ingolstadt machine came in stock form or not.
Update:We've brought along a second piece of footage (the clip on the right) from the said event, one that includes spicy moments such as car spotters asking the driver of the Aventador S to pull some Launch Control moves on the road.
