Ah, the splendid randomness of YouTube drag races - we've brought along an example of this, with the adventure involving a 991.2-generation Porsche 911 Carrera 4S and a... Lamborghini Huracan Performante.
By now, we've seen the 640 hp Huracan engaging in all sorts of shenanigans, from temporarily holding the Nurburgring production car lap record to exposing its quirks and features in front of Doug DeMuro.

And the time has now come for the Sant'Agata Bolognese special to be reviewed by Nick Murray. As those of you tuned into our tales know, Nick owns the said Neunelfer (his car comes with a manual) and loves throwing his car at all sort of opponents, even when the odds of winning are close to zero.

Then again, the battle we have here is more than a simple race, as you'll be able to notice in the piece of footage at the bottom of the page. It all kicked off with a classing rolling drag race and you only need to throw a glance at the two go-fast machines to predict the outcome. Then again, the stunts that followed were aimed at changing that outcome.

What happens when the Performante enters a legitimate drag racing battle

Speaking of Lamborghini Huracan Performante drag racing shenanigans, we need to point out that the Raging Bull has yet to fully deliver in terms of straight-line action.

You see, the standard Huracan, if we might call the LP610-4 model so, is a brilliant machine than can complete the quarter-mile stunt in as little as 10.4 seconds.

Interestingly, despite owner having spend a bit of time with their Performantes, no such incarnation of the car has managed to beat the number mentioned above. And while one might blame the massive aerodynamic package of the special edition for that, we'll remind you that the Performante comes with active aero.
