Acura NSX Gets Drag Race Revenge On Lamborghini Huracan

Acura NSXs Get Drag Race Revenge On Lamborghini Huracan

Watch a quartet of Acura NSXs seek revenge on a Lamborghini Huracan that miffed one of their brethren.

It looks like the friendly rivalry between DragTimes and his Lamborghini Huracan LP610-4 has gone from being merely casual cajoling to an all-out war. After defeating the last NSX in a drag race at the Palm Beach International Raceway, that NSX’s friends all gathered to issue a challenge to DragTimes for a 4-way drag beatdown.

And of course, DragTimes couldn’t refuse a good challenge.

But first, he got a set of brand new Toyo tires to take on the NSXs. That would help him maintain grip with the strip and ensure all 602 of his horses pushed his 3,423 lb Lambo to victory.

Meanwhile, the NSXs bring a hybrid theory of a 3.5-L twin-turbo V6 along with three electric motors for a combined 573 hp and 476 lb-ft torque. Unfortunately for the NSX, its battery pack weighs it down to the point where it has 400 extra lbs to carry over the Huracan.

Both cars have AWD, while the NSXs have the benefit of instant torque thanks to their electric motors. Would it be enough to overcome their higher overall weight and lower overall power?

In a word: no.

In our first race, the NSX red lights but still loses to the Huracan by a car length. The final time was 10.703 seconds at 129.12 mph for the Huracan, while the NSX managed 10.928 seconds at 127.26 mph.

Race two would see a slightly modified NSX take on the Huracan. Sporting meth injection, it essentially injects a cool mist of air into the cylinder to lower its temperature and increase detonation, thus increasing power. We’re not too sure if he had all the kinks out because its race went even worse than the first race with the stock NSX.

Only in the third race do we finally see the NSX win, although not by the numbers. After crawling ahead for a car length the Huracan couldn’t close the gap before the finish line. However, the times say that the Huracan finished in 10.616 seconds while the NSX took 10.797 seconds to finish the quarter-mile.

In our last race, we see the NSX lose by a nose to the Huracan, finishing in 10.723 seconds compared to the Huracan’s 10.585. It was a valiant effort, but it appears that the Huracan is the winner of this battle, and perhaps even the war.
