Porsche 911 Turbo S Crushes Lamborghini Aventador S in a Drag Race, Starts Riot

The Lamborghini Aventador S and the Porsche 911 Turbo S are far from direct competitors. After all, one is a 740 hp mid-engined head-turning device, while the other is the most practical supercar out there. Well, none of this seems to matter when the two are thrown at each other in a drag race.

And, to illustrate this, we've brought along a sprinting battle involving the two. The shenanigan, which took place earlier this year and was held by Motoring Grid Brasil, saw the Raging Bull and the Neunelfer going at it on an airfield.

It all kicked off with a standing start adventure, one that saw the Lambo being left in the dust. The crew also held a rolling start race, which required the drivers to engage manual mode, so that the supercars would stay in second gear. Nevertheless, the editor behind the wheel of the Lambo didn't do his job properly (more on that below).

Of course, when a drag race comes with such a result, it's only normal to wonder about the effect of a driver swap. And, after multiple comments of the sort showed up on YouTube, the mag addressed the matter:

"Notice that they both left absolutely together at the same time, both in the launch control and both in the automatic just to not have a mistake of gear change. There is no pilot interference," we are being told.

The editors also talked about a rematch in the case of the rolling battle: "As a matter of fact, we have already recorded another Drag Race in response to requests for a change of driver [rolling race] and we can see that there is no difference when the two drivers leave together,"

Now, if the drag race we have here brought you in the mood for even more Lamborghini hooning, we'll remind you that we've previously brought you drag races that involved the Aventador S.

For instance, there's the V12 monster duking it out with a Ferrari 812 Superfast, with the battle having taken place in Russia.

And the Lambo didn't just race its competitors, as for instance, the Italian exotic also battled a Porsche 911 GT3 RS - the fight was held on an airfield in Germany.
