Twin-Turbo Huracan and Built GTR Go Toe to Toe in Epic Roll Race

By -

Japan’s greatest supercar gets the early lead, but the Huracan wins by inches.

This incredible video comes to us from the That Racing Channel YouTube network and it features a Lamborghini Huracan taking on a Nissan GTR in a high speed roll race. In stock form, these two supercars would make for a great race, but with extensive modifications allowing both to make more than a thousand horsepower – this is a clash of two of America’s nastiest street cars.

The competitors

The first eight minutes of this video offers us an in-car look at the Huracan and the GTR. We spend far more time in the Lamborghini as one of the hosts talks with the owner about the upgrades. While the hosts talk, the drivers blast around the closed circuit, exercising their high performance machines in a safe location.

Underground Racing Huracan

This Raging Bull is fitted with an Underground Racing Stage 3 turbo kit, “R heads” and a few others upgrades, allowing it to run the quarter mile in the mid-9s while sprinting from 60 to 130 in the mid-three-second range. It also sounds wicked while under hard throttle, often spinning the tires at high speeds.

Serious Autosport GTR

The Nissan is the Switzer-Built Serious Autosport GTR, with an E87 tune that affords it around 1,300 horsepower. The GTR can also roast the tires from a fast roll, as we see when the driver is talking about the vehicle.

The race

After spending some time in each of the cars, learning about how the GTR and Huracan differ from production models, it is time for the big race. The cars come around a tight turn and pick up speed as they hit the cones. We don’t get the exact starting speed, but it looks to be at least 60 miles per hour. From there, they run wide open for what looks to be a quarter mile or so.

Huracan Vs GTR

The first clip of the race is filmed from the Nissan, where we can it jump out to a small lead as the Huracan inches closer and closer, but when they left off, it is hard to tell which car is in the front.

The second clip comes from inside the Lamborghini and from this angle, it looks like the Italian supercar wins the race.

Huracan Beats GTR

Finally, we watch the race from the finish line and from this angle, it looks just about dead-even. Fortunately, the slow-motion clip shows that the Lambo gets to the finish line first, by less than a few inches. It couldn’t have been a much closer race and when you couple the competition with the sound – it is a great display of modified supercar performance.

"Before I was old enough to walk, my dad was taking me to various types of racing events, from local drag racing to the Daytona 500," says Patrick Rall, a lifetime automotive expert, diehard Dodge fan, and respected auto journalist for over 10 years. "He owned a repair shop and had a variety of performance cars when I was young, but by the time I was 16, he was ready to build me my first drag car – a 1983 Dodge Mirada that ran low 12s. I spent 10 years traveling around the country, racing with my dad by my side. While we live in different areas of the country, my dad still drag races at 80 years old in the car that he built when I was 16 while I race other vehicles, including my 2017 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and my 1972 Dodge Demon 340.

"Although I went to college for accounting, my time in my dad’s shop growing up allowed me the knowledge to spend time working as a mechanic before getting my accounting degree, at which point I worked in the office of a dealership group. While I was working in the accounting world, I continued racing and taking pictures of cars at the track. Over time, I began showing off those pictures online and that led to my writing.

"Ten years ago, I left the accounting world to become a full-time automotive writer and I am living proof that if you love what you do, you will never “work” a day in your life," adds Rall, who has clocked in time as an auto mechanic, longtime drag racer and now automotive journalist who contributes to nearly a dozen popular auto websites dedicated to fellow enthusiasts.

"I love covering the automotive industry and everything involved with the job. I was fortunate to turn my love of the automotive world into a hobby that led to an exciting career, with my past of working as a mechanic and as an accountant in the automotive world provides me with a unique perspective of the industry.

"My experience drag racing for more than 20 years coupled with a newfound interest in road racing over the past decade allows me to push performance cars to their limit, while my role as a horse stable manager gives me vast experience towing and hauling with all of the newest trucks on the market today.

"Being based on Detroit," says Rall, "I never miss the North American International Auto Show, the Woodward Dream Cruise and Roadkill Nights, along with spending plenty of time raising hell on Detroit's Woodward Avenue with the best muscle car crowd in the world.
