Lamborghini Huracan Races 800 HP Nissan GT-R

The Nissan GT-R earned the name of "supercar killer" when it came out and murdered all the Italians in drag races back in 2008. Since it also costs fractionally less, Godzilla also became a cult car. But steadily, all the other car companies learned the same launch control cheats, to the point where Nissan's creation doesn't quite have the initial reputation. Godzilla was also affected by the fact that it has lost a part of its pricing advantage over the years.

So, what does it take for a Nissan R35 GT-R to outrun Lamborghini's latest supercar, the Huracan LP610-4? How about 800 horsepower from a tuning company?

These next couple of videos show a drag race organized on an empty airfield in Meinerzhagen, Germany. The Nissan wins, but there's not much in it, which considering the near 200 hp deficit is very surprising.

The 800 horsepower GT-R was put together by Dutch tuning company Total Car Concept and features the GT800 Turbo Kit with "Symmetrical Twin Turbo Layout" combined with other HKS performance goodies like the specially designed exhaust system, bringing the total extra cost to around $13,000 (€10,000). With that much power squeezed out of it, the 3.8-liter V6 under the Nissan's bonnet won't last too many of these supercar killing drag races.

In any case, the Huracan arrives on the scene while doing donuts, is still covered by a full warranty and sounds much better. Yes, it's the one we'd take home after the race if we had to choose, making the GT-R's victory a hollow one.
