Is a Bugatti Chiron Super Sport faster than an 1,800 hp Lamborghini Huracan that has been detuned to 1,600 hp? Mat Watson and the rest of the CarWow gang want to find out in their latest drag racing showdown.
The 4,398-pound Bugatti Chiron Super Sport is powered by a quad-turbocharged 8.0L W16 engine generating 1,578 hp and 1,180 lb-ft of torque, paired to a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. As for the 3,637 pound Lamborghini Huracan, its modified twin-turbocharged 5.2L V10 now makes 1,775 hp (detuned to 1,578 hp) and 1,106 lb-ft of torque, mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Without spoiling the results, it’s safe to say that the Huracan can definitely hold its own, despite the price difference.
Finally, we have a bit of a wildcard with a WRX Mini hatchback. This is actually the rarest car here, being one of one, and it’s powered by a dinky four cylinder engine. That may seem a bit underwhelming compared to the Bugatti, it has four times the cylinders after all, but this plucky little car still puts out 600hp and 1,000Nm of torque,” said the CarWow team.
