It’s a Christmas gift to gearheads everywhere as a pair of Lamborghinis take on a McLaren 720S and Ferrari 812 Superfast in drag race action.
Usually, drag race videos top out at just two expensive supercars, but this latest video from 888MF provides us with an astounding 4 cars nearly worth $1.5 million collectively. It’s like a Christmas gift to the entire internet as we get to see just how well these cars stack up.
The Lamborghinis on display are the latest and greatest you can buy with either a V10 or V12. On the smaller side is the Huracan Performante Spyder, with a 5.2-L V10 and the least amount of power of the four cars racing with just 631 hp and 443 lb-ft. The addition of a soft top roof adds a few hundred pounds and a tenth of a second to the Huracan’s 0-60 time, but it retains AWD for fast starts off the line.
But not as fast as the Lamborghini Aventador SuperVeloce. This mean machine has a 6.2-L V12 with 740 hp and 509 lb-ft. Zero to sixty is done in just 2.8 seconds on its way to a top speed of 217 mph.
While the McLaren 720S doesn’t have as much power as the Aventador or the Ferrari, it has a proven pedigree for winning. A 4.0-L twin-turbo V8 engine provides forced induction in a lineup of naturally aspirated vehicles and has 710 hp to show for it. Zero to sixty is done in 2.7 seconds with a top speed of 212 mph.
Finally, the Ferrari 812 Superfast is the biggest car of the bunch weighing in at 3,594 lbs dry--a full 400 lbs more than the McLaren. But it also has more power with 789 hp coming from a 6.5-L V12.
To give us a good idea of where each car stands, 888MF starts us off with paired drag races where the winner goes on. First is the Huracan and the Aventador, which judging by the numbers alone, you can already tell the Aventador has a huge advantage.
Unsurprisingly, the more powerful Aventador wins handily. Next, it faces the Ferrari 812 Superfast in a battle of Italian supercars. It’s a close race, but the Ferrari just manages to get ahead of the Aventador to win by a car length.
Finally, the Ferrari 812 and McLaren 720S face off in the main event. This race is incredible as the Ferrari takes the early lead, but then the McLaren manages to crawl its way ahead to win by a nose just as the finish line arrives.
A four-way finale mirrors the paired matchups, with the McLaren coming in first, the Ferrari second, the Aventador third, and the Huracan last.
