Watch a Ferrari F12 and Lamborghini Aventador Roadster Hit the Drag Strip


There are a lot of differences between the Ferrari F12 and Lamborghini Aventador. But at the same time, there are a few similarities too. They both have about 700 horsepower, give or take. They both are large touring cars. And they both make everything else on the road look inferior—but that’s beside the point.

With that in mind, two drivers took to the track in their respective Italian supercars; the Ferrari F12, with a 731 horsepower V12, and the Lamborghini Aventador, with a 691 horsepower V12. The F12 is lighter at 3,593 pounds compared to the Aventador Roadster’s 4,085 pounds, but all-wheel drive could give the Lambo the jump it needs.

Even with the Lamborghini’s all-wheel drive, the F12 gets a surprising jump on the Aventador—and never looks back. Though, we suspect that might have been in part due to driver error. At the end of the day, the F12 finished with a high of 154.1 mph, while the Aventador Roadster hit 154.3 mph.
