McLaren 675LT Drag Races VF Engineering Supercharged Lamborghini Huracan

Pitting a Lamborghini Huracan against a McLaren 675LT in a drag race, or any kind of race, for that matter, should be called cheating. We won't even complain about the fact that the Brits' machines strive to offer the best power-to-weight ratio in their class, while the Sant'Agata Bolognese creatures are all about natural aspiration.

Instead, we'll list the 650S as a competitor for the Huracan, at least until the Raging Bull starts rolling out special editions that up the ante on the performance front. Well, the Huracan driver in the video below doesn't seem to have anything against said rule-bending and that's because the man had prepared some unorthodox moves of his own.

To be more specific, we're not dealing with your "average" 610 hp Huracan here. Instead, the Lamborghini used in this drag race has been gifted with a supercharger kit.

As those following the aftermarket scene have probably guessed by now, we're dealing with US specialist VF Engineering's hardware. Making use of an Eaton TVS2300 Roots blower working at 7.5 psi, the package takes the V10 supercar from 602 hp and 413 lb-ft of twist to 805 hp and 610 lb-ft.

We'll remind you the Woking machine used here sees McLaren's 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 being massaged to 666 hp and 516 lb-ft of twist. Still, while the Mac tips the scales at 2,711 lbs, the Italian temptress weighs in at 3,135 lbs and that's without the added blower kit.

The two representatives of the mid-engined forced induction genre duke it out on an airfield runway. We're dealing with a half-mile battle here, so the trap speeds are what matters the most.

P.S.: We understand the supercharger kit, which has received positive reviews, changes the Huracan's power delivery, but this is no excuse for the way in which the driver of this particular example handles the paddle shifters.
