Lamborghini Huracan Performante
National pride is at stake as British engineering takes on the might of the Italians and Germans in today’s drag race.
The latest car from Woking, the McLaren Artura, is making its drag race debut here. Powered by an all-new 3.0-litre twin-turbo V6 linked up to an electric motor, the Artura produces 680hp and 800Nm. That makes it the most powerful here, though its challengers are no strangers to a competitive carwow drag race.
Right next to the Arutra is the Lamborghini Huracan Performante. Now a stalwart of the supercar world, its 5.2-litre naturally-aspirated V10 kicks out 640hp and 600Nm. Though down on the McLaren for power, it utilises an all-wheel-drive system – unlike the rear-wheel-drive Brit – so grip could be in its favour.
Adding more fuel to the first is the king of launching, the Porsche 911 Turbo S. Its 3.8-litre twin-turbo flat-six produces 650hp and 800Nm and, if you’re familiar with these parts, you know it’s going to have no trouble putting it down.
Quite the line-up, then. Which of these supercars will fly its country’s flag highest?
