But just look at the specs! While the Italian supercar pack a naturally aspirated V10 with 610 HP, the 720S has upgraded to a new 4-liter twin-turbo V8 that makes, you guessed it, 720 HP.
The Huracan's launch is a beautiful thing. The V10 revs out and waits for the clutch to dump all its available torque to four moving wheels. The 720S only has rear-wheel drive, so it can't put down as much power off the line. But after the turbos spool up, it's a case of "see you later alligator."
We want to point out that what the guys at Drag Times are doing here is... not very legal. This is a public road, and you can see traffic catching up to them. But if we have the latest McLaren supercar and a worthy Lamborghini challenge, you'd probably see us doing the same thing.
Once they have their fill of drag races, they do a rolling start. This time, the power of the McLaren becomes even more apparent, as within a couple of seconds you can barely see the red Lamborghini. The air brake comes on, almost like it wants to celebrate the victory of the British supercar.
After seeing these races, we can't help but wonder where and when this is all going to end. Will Lamborghini ever respond to the twin-turbo threat to its livelihood? Will ordinary supercars eventually make a thousand horsepower? What we can say for sure is that 720S is sold out for more than a year, which means it's a real hit.
