Aventador SVJ vs Tecnica: 770hp V12 vs 640hp V10
Hundreds of thousands of dollars can cause some of the Lamborghini models to stand apart from the others. The amount of money seperating the Aventador SVJ and the Huracan Tecnica is as large as $200,000; nevertheless, a new drag racing video demonstrates that investing this extra money does not necessarily guarantee triumph in the quarter-mile challenge.
The SVJ cranks out a hefty 770 horsepower from its 6.5-liter normally aspirated V12 powerplant. In comparison, the Huracan churns out fewer ponies at just 640. But might isn’t the only factor here; the Aventador weighs in at 3,910 pounds, while the TCD’s 5.2-liter V10 makes less but nonetheless respectable 640 horses and is also lighter, at 3,350 lbs.
The more costly Aventador has the advantage of all-wheel drive, whereas the Huracan merely turns its back wheels via its seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. Its bigger sibling boasts a seven-speed ISR automated manual system.
Although the Aventador emerged victorious in two out of three drag races, it wasn’t able to achieve the quickest quarter-mile times. The ET sheet demonstrated that the Huracan was actually slightly more nimble; it outran the Aventador by a few tenths of a second in each run. The most outstanding performance of the Tecnica was seen through 10.549 seconds at 131.43 mph, while the SVJ delivered 10.730 seconds and 134.08 mph.
Does the extra 200K price tag of the SVJ seem worth it? While it might not be when merely drag racing is concerned, Lamborghini was actually designing the two models with a road-course mentality, as opposed to a direct drag focus. We assume a visible contrast in their performance when it comes to going around bends!
