Nowadays, there seemed to be an endless stream of supercars, especially from the European side of the world, leaving us wondering which ones are actually the fastest and fastest.
The Lamborghini The Aventador SVJ and McLaren 600LT aren’t new supercars, but they aren’t old either.
People would love to see which of these supercars is faster than the other in a straight line competition.
Fortunately, though, YouTube’s Mat Watson of CarWow spares us the hustle by organizing a drag-and-roll race between these two champions.
Lamborghini vs McLaren: a super battle with different advantages
As one of the more refined versions of the Lamborghini Aventador, the SVJ offers racing-car-like performance as defined by the meaning of the initials – Super Veloce Jota.
But of course, other automakers have created their own masterpieces that offer a similar level of performance.
For example, the McLaren 600LT could present itself as a good match against the Aventador SVJ.
Power-wise, the Aventador SVJ might have the advantage, as its 6.5-liter V12 engine delivers a maximum power of 759 horsepower and 509 lb-ft of torque.
The mill’s 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged V8 under the 600LT’s hood looks pale by comparison, as it only has 592 horsepower of maximum output and 457 pound-feet of peak torque.
However, McLaren has the weight advantage, tipping the scales at 3,095 pounds while the Lambo weighs in at 3,362 pounds.
Mixed results in the Lambo and McLaren supercar race
On paper, the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ is faster at 0-62 mph in 2.8 seconds.
The McLaren 600LT doesn’t lag too far with a time of 2.9 seconds.
CarWow’s race between the Aventador SVJ and the 600LT may see one supercar in front, but other factors — such as driver reaction time, track condition, tires and all-wheel drive configuration — may affect the race results.
In the first drag race, the Aventador won by a very narrow margin.
However, in the second race, the 600LT beat the more powerful Aventador SVJ, as it was faster at launch.
Rolling races – both 30 mph and 50 mph races – belonged to Lambo.
Roll-on racing benefited from the more efficient Aventador SVJ, which was now putting more power on the moving wheels.
Lambo broke the tie 2-2 by winning the braking contest by a few feet.
