The Urus really does stick out like a sore thumb, an enormous SUV stood alongside a pair of low-slung supercars. But it is a Lamborghini and so comes extremely well endowed in the power stakes. Under its bonnet is a 4.0-litre, twin-turbo V8 engine producing 650hp and 850Nm of torque, sent to the road via an eight-speed automatic gearbox and four-wheel-drive. It’s a heavyweight, too, at 2200kg.
Then we have the Aventador. Or the Lamborghini Aventador LP750-4 SV Roadster, to give it its rather lengthy full name. It has a 6.5-litre, naturally aspirated V12 producing 750hp and 690Nm, going through a seven-speed robotised manual gearbox and four-wheel-drive. It tips the scales at 1575kg.
Last but definitely not least, is a Huracan Performante. Its 5.2-litre V10 makes 640hp and 600Nm which might not seem like much in this company. But it does have a brilliant launch control system to go with its super-quick, seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox and four-wheel-drive. And, weighing 1382kg, it’s the lightest by a big margin. Let’s not forget, either, that the Performante is one of the fastest road cars that has ever been timed around the Nurburgring.
We can’t decide which one sounds best (it’s not the Urus!) but it should be easier to tell which is the fastest. Let’s light ‘em up and find out.
