Lamborghini Huracan vs. McLaren 650S Spider Drag Race Proves More than One Point

When talking about a drag race between a Lamborghini Huracan LP610-4 and a McLaren 650S, the verdict is not that simple, so while we're here to give you such a battle, we need to discuss the details of the confrontation first.

With Mclaren constantly delivering new incarnations of the supercar concept that started out with the MP4-12C back in 2011, people tend to forget how ferocious a "standard" 650S can be.

In fact, Woking itself sent a 650S Spider to a supercar comparison test involving fixed-roof models at least one, all with the aim of proving how velocity-friendly its machines are.

650S owners quickly got the idea, hence the open-top model showed in the video at the bottom of the page.

As for the Lamborghini Huracan we have here, we're dealing with the "normal" LP610-4 Coupe, but the example we have here has a special story. Its Rosso Mars hue hasn't been chosen by accident, as its owner used to have a Gallardo Super Trofeo Stradale dressed in the same hue (the STS introduced this color to the Raging Bull line-up).

As mentioned in the story that showed how the man visited his Lambo dealer for a Gallardo oil change and ended up trading in the STS for this Huracan, the new Sant'Agata Bolognese machine is here to race.

As we mentioned in the title, there's more than one point to be made when it comes to this standing start street race. We have to start with the winner of the fight and all we can tell you is that, in theory, both supercars can complete the quarter mile run in 10.4 seconds.

Then again, we can't ignore the aural side of the battle. Since the clip sees both speed demons being used as camera cars, it won't be difficult to judge the dB side of the competition.
