Lamborghini Huracan Drag Races Sneaky Cadillac CTS-V, Gets Humiliated

Let's say you're the driver of a Lamborghini Huracan and you decided to hit the drag strip. A second-generation Cadillac CTS-V lines up next to you, with the intentions of the guy behind the wheel being obvious. Should you be worried?

The answer obviously depends on what lies underneath the skin of the said Caddy. Even so, given the stock quarter-mile time of the CTS-V, you should be safe.

To be more precise, a Cadillac CTS-V belonging to the previous generation needs 12 seconds to complete the 1,320 feet sprint. As for the V10 animal we're discussing here, the Raging Bull is a car that can play this game in as little as 10.4 seconds. And the 1.5+ seconds that split the two mean that any mods the Cadillac owner may have installed might not be enough to make you admire the angular posterior of the super-sedan.

You should also have a much easier job getting your Sant'Agata Bolognese machine off the line, since we're talking about a confrontation between a vehicle that mixes all-wheel-drive with a Launch Control feature and one that comes in rear-wheel-drive form.

However, the Huracan quarter-mile time we mentioned above involves ideal conditions. And we're here to show you what can happen when the driver of such a Lambo doesn't enjoy such parameters.

To be more precise the Huracan in the piece of footage below, which did race a modded Gen II Cadillac CTS-V, took a looong while to complete the 1,320 feet run (make that 11.2 seconds).

As for its muscle sedan opponent, the ultra-sticky rubber adorning the rear axle of the Caddy says something about the power the machine has to put down. Interestingly, the Cadillac completed the said task in 10.3 seconds, which means that the Lamborghini Huracan guy would've had a hard time even in an optimal scenario.
