We won’t tell you which mechanical beast wins this one, but we can explain the... course. Both contenders use a standing start, so the expected drag race follows. Subsequently, while the fighter jet gains a bit of altitude and performs a turn in the air, the Huracan plays the u-turn game, with both rushing to return to the starting point.
While we’ve talked about the Italian supercar on a million occasions so far, its Russian opponent may not be all that familiar to you. The Huracan’s V10 had to face this twin-engined machine, which, by the way, is included in the “supermaneuverable fighter aircraft” class.
The Huracan may have just entered the market, but the Suhoi Su-27 has been in the air since Sant’Agata Bolognese used to offer the Countach. 1985, to be more precise.
As for the performance, the Flanker can hit Mach 2.35 (that’s 1,550 mph or 2,500 km/h for us earthlings) and can climb at up to 59,000 feet per minute (300 m/s). Let’s just skip the firepower department, shall we?
