      From the guys that brought us the Tesla Model X beating an Aventador SV, Drag Times have another great drag racing video for us. This time, the McLaren 720S takes on the Lamborghini Huracan Performante.

      Firstly, let's look at the two cars on paper. The McLaren 720S is powered by a 4.0L twin turbo V8 engine, producing 710BHP. The car can accelerate to 60MPH from a standstill in 2.9 seconds and is capable of a top speed of 220MPH. The Huracan Performante on the other hand is powered by a 5.2L V10, kicking out 631BHP, a 0-60MPH time of 2.9 seconds and a top speed limited to 202MPH.


      The video from the guys at Drag Times shows the difference between these two cars. The video shows 4 seperate drag races, two from a rolling start, and two from a stand still. In every race, the McLaren 720S really takes off from the Lamborghini, leaving it behind. Without launch control on the McLaren however, the Lamborghini does seem to get the edge, but this is short lived, as the 720S comes roaring past within a matter of seconds. Unfortunately, the guys claimed the Performante was too new to use it's Launch Control mode.

      Which would you rather have?

      • The McLaren is fast, but I'd still have the NA V10 in the Huracan. Honestly, though, neither has a manual option, so I wouldn't have either.
