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