Lamborghini Huracan Tramples Over Aventador Roadster in Russian Street Race

It's no secret that the Lamborghini Huracan comes dangerously close to its Aventador big brother in terms of performance. We've seen this in multiple videos and discussed the numbers behind it. But what happens when the Huracan battles it out with the Aventador Roadster?

Well, as you'll be able to see in the footage below, the result doesn't exactly do justice to the V12 Raging Bull.

The clip takes us into the heart of the Russian street racing scene, with the two Lambos duking it out in Sport mode on the highway.

Yes, we know, you want numbers to enter the stage once again. Well, in terms of the power-to-weight ratio, the two Italian supercars are identical, with both of them burdening each of their horses with 2.7 kg (5.95 lbs).

Despite this, the fixed-roof Huracan manages to show its rear end to the Aventador Roadster in almost any sprinting challenge you can imagine, whether we're talking about standing or rolling starts.

In fact, the Huracan even one-ups the open-top V12 machine in the braking department, but since we don't get to see such tests in the footage below, we'll leave this story for another time.

In another kind of battle that's (thankfully) not included in the action seen here, the Aventador Roadster could outgun the Gallardo's successor, but only in the stratospheric area of the speedometer, since the first's top speed is considerably higher.

Then again, in real life, you don't quite get the chance to enter that ridiculous velocity arena. As a result, such assets end up on the bragging rights table and remain there, without translating into actual victories.

Nevertheless, the mighty Aventador does get a bit of justice at the end of the clip, but we'll let this part of the action unfold after you hit the "play" button.
