    Lamborghini Gallardo LP570 Super Trofeo Stradale 11.1 @ 132 MPH 1/4 Mile Drag Racing vs tuned BMW M4

    1/4 mile drag race video of a rare light-weight Lamborghini Gallardo STS (Super Trofeo Stradale) versus a 2015 BMW M4. The Lamborghini Gallardo STS is powered by a naturally aspirated 5.2 Liter V10 which makes 570 horsepower. The BMW M4 is powered by a 3.0 liter twin turbo 6 cylinder that makes 425 horsepower when stock; however, the M4 is tuned and makes substantially more power than stock. Watch and enjoy the race.

    There are two theories to arguing with women. Neither one works

    A tuned BMW F82 M4 tries its luck on the 1/4 mile dragstrip against a Lamborghini Gallardo LP570 Super Trofeo Stradale

    Whomever owns this LP570 Super Trofeo Stradale in Florida sure has been giving the car a bit of a workout. It certainly appears to be the same LP570 Super Trofeo Stradale (referred to as STS henceforth) that recently did a couple runs with a C7 Corvette Z06.

    It also went head to head with a Porsche 991 Turbo on the dragstrip. In that encounter, the LP570 STS had a best trap speed of 126.33 miles per hour. Not bad for a track oriented Gallardo that has weight stripped out to get it into the 31XX pounds range and aerodynamics designed to generate downforce for the track.

    The 570 horsepower 5.2 liter naturally aspirated and direct injected V10 is also clearly quite a stout mill. So does a BMW F82 M4 have a chance against the Lambo? Certainly, especially if tuned. Keep in mind we have already seen tuned M3/M4's go 11.1 on the dragstrip and the best we have seen out of this LP570 STS is an 11.3.

    The M4 gets a poor launch although it leaves the line before the LP570 STS. A 2.11 60 foot time is nothing to write home about for the M4. The 1.79 60 foot for the Lambo does not exceed the 1.75 it managed last time with launch control when it went 11.342 @ 125.52.

    Despite this worse 60 foot the LP570 STS goes 11.184 @ 132.05 to the F82 M4's 11.869 @ 121.61. Why does the LP570 STS trap about 6.5 miles per hour higher this time out? Well, the owner removed the rear wing which no doubt helps. Almost 7 miles per of trap speed just by taking off the spoiler? Perhaps it is within reason when the winter air is factored in as well. It is up to you to decide if that difference is just due to less drag and running in January as the car is stated to be stock.

    The M4 definitely needs drag tires and some more aggressive tuning to make this a race.

    I was at that track day but didn't see this run. There were a lot of fast cars there and the track prep was pretty good. I was able to stick most of my launches with just street tires.

    Its really a function of the camera lens / angle... a 1.7x 60' isn't all that impressive (at all)

    If you have a GTR or 991TTS where all you do is put your foot on one middle fat pedal and another foot on the right pedal and then release and drive down the str8 half-asleep then you are correct sir !

    Impressive considering the earliest gallardos trapped 15mph less in the 1/4, they exploited the tranny and motor to the max with this platform....

    I'd agree with you.

    My point was more that you think the launch is 'unbelievable' because of camera trickery. A 1.7x 60' really isn't fast by today's standards. As for it being fast for the car; its AWD and has e-gear... sure, the car was "designed for the road course", but it still has 570hp, AWD and probably weighs in the 3,4xx range with a driver. Unless first gear goes to 90mph, there isn't really anything else that matters.

    I don't understand why someone would neg you for saying this, I gave you a positive. I meant unbelievable in the sense of absolutely badass.

    It's a perfect launch really, no drama at all. Of course it could be faster, it could always be faster.
