Watch a rematch between an Acura NSX and a Lamborghini Huracan in a quarter-mile drag race.
However, something seemed a little off about that last race. The Huracan LP 610-4 outpowers the NSX by a good 30 horses from it’s 5.2-L naturally aspirated V10 (for a total of 602 hp). It also weighs less at just over 3,500 lbs. More power and less weight should always win in a simple drag race, right?
At the time we passed it off as superior early torque thanks to the NSX’s trio of electric motors, but DragTimes disagreed. He says that his Huracan’s tires were worn out on the previous race and that prevented his Huracan from gripping the track.
Now that we have a fresh set of rubbers on, DragTimes aims to show that the Huracan is the superior drag racer, and no amount of electric torque will allow an NSX to defeat him.
On paper, the two cars are fairly well matched. Yes, the Huracan is both lighter and more powerful, but the NSX advertises a zero-to-sixty time of just 2.9 seconds compared to the 3.0 seconds of the Huracan LP 610-4. The Huracan does have a better top speed at 208 mph compared to the NSX’s 191 mph, but over a quarter-mile drag race that will hardly matter.
This time there’s no doubt. The Huracan grabs the early lead and keeps it all the way down the track. The NSX seems to have no chance of ever catching up no matter what gear it switched to.
The Huracan posted a time of 10.68 seconds at 129.21 mph, while the NSX finished in 11.15 seconds at 123.85 mph.
Apparently there is more footage to be seen, so maybe the NSX had a better run in a different race. We’ll have to wait and see, but this video is pretty convincing for the Huracan.
