Moscow Hosts Horsepower Orgy with 2,000-HP Gallardo Vs. 1,600-HP GT-R Drag Race

There’s also an Audi RS6, which is all well and good, but it doesn’t have quite as much horsepower.

Drag cars with over 1,000 horsepower seem like they’re a dime a dozen these days. Cars with over 1,500 horsepower start to get a bit rarer, and cars pushing 2,000 horsepower are still the sort of thing that you only sometimes see making a complete quarter mile pass without exploding. But we found one here, a Lamborghini Gallardo racing in the Unlim500+ event in Moscow, against a Nissan GT-R packing 1,600 horsepower.

Without giving too much away, there’s more to drag racing than simple numbers. It’s a good idea to keep that in mind sometimes.
