    • Stock Aventador runs into a tuned Protomotive 911 turbo for a mile drag race, this is what happens

      The Lamborghini Aventador is a beast. Just a flat out best in stock form capable of 10's and traps speeds around 133 miles per hour. The car dynos 635 horsepower to the wheels in stock form on a dynojet. That is a lot of power and naturally aspirated power to boot. So it's fast, it's strong, but what happens when it races a Protomotive 997.1 Turbo? The video below shows the outcome and the 911 Turbo simply crushes it.


      With a claimed 950 horsepower from the 997.1 Turbo, which is backed up with the result, it is not surprising it beats the Aventador. Just goes to show how strong turbo cars can be. Yes, the race takes place in the wet (not recommended with a very damp track but considering both cars are all wheel drive they share a similar disadvantage and obviously it is not as bad as if they were rear wheel drive.

      The Aventador launches nicely and is able to hold off the 911 Turbo for a bit but then the horsepower disparity simply takes over and the 997 Turbo pulls away. Yes, the Lambo loses, but it's still the car anyone would rather go home in. Put a couple turbos on the Aventador and let's have a rematch and see what happens.

        That's fast. That Porsche is going 200 mph in the mile. Nothing short of impressive. That Lamborghini, for a factory stock super car, 180+ is nothing to sneeze at, especially in those conditions.

        The aventador's styling is prob the best since the Diablo days. Got to see 3 of em driving in LA but none were really pushing it, made me feel faster in the x5, haha.
