Porsche 911 GT2 RS And Lamborghini Huracan Performante Duke It Out

Comparison

Would you choose the hardcore Porsche 911 GT2 RS or Lamborghini Huracan Performante as your track toy?

It’s the battle we’ve all been waiting for between the two kings of the ‘Ring: the Lamborghini Huracan Performante and Porsche 911 GT2 RS. Both cars have an obvious rivalry since the Porsche 911 GT2 RS stole the crown from the Huracan Performante a few months ago, setting the fastest lap ever recorded by a production car at the Nurburgring. It wasn’t a small victory either – the GT2 RS humiliated the Huracan, beating it by nearly five seconds.

At long last, we finally get to see both hardcore supercars battle it out on the track in an independent test to determine which is best. German magazine Sport Auto staged a comparison at Hockenheim to compare lap times set by both cars. As a recap, the Porsche 911 GT2 RS has 690 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque thanks to a 3.8-liter twin-turbo flat-six.

0-62 mph only takes 2.9 seconds before it tops out at 212 mph. Its rival, the Huracan Performante, is powered by a 5.2-liter naturally aspirated V10. Even without turbochargers, it still delivers a respectable 63 -hp and 443 lb-ft of torque which allows it to sprint to 62 mph in 2.9 seconds and reach a top speed of over 202 mph. The GT2 RS has a slight power advantage, but both cars are quite evenly matched. However, in the very capable hands of Christian Gebhardt, the GT2 RS still beat the Huracan Performante, albeit only by 1.7 seconds. At least the defeat wasn’t as crushing as Porsche’s Nurburgring victory.

Both cars were also the quickest production cars Sport Auto had ever tested at Hockenheim. You shouldn’t base your car buying decisions on lap times alone, though. Both cars are equally impressive and represent some of the most extreme road cars ever made by their respective manufacturers. Porsche may be able to boast that the GT2 RS is the fastest RWD production car at the Nurburgring, but the Huracan Performante is no slouch and is a commendable achievement for Lamborghini.
