McLaren P1 Versus Lamborghini Aventador – Drag Race Video

Let’s Race

With the arrival of the first McLaren P1 in Indonesia, the SpeedCreed crew decided to put it to the test against the Lamborghini Aventador.

The McLaren P1 (which plugs in for a little extra oompf) has a 111 hp over the 692 hp Lamborghini Aventador.  This advantage makes the P1 a rocket once it gets rolling.

As you’ll see in the video, the AWD Aventador matches the P1 off the line, but soon the P1’s power advantage propels it to an easy victory.

*Drag race begins at ~ 3:40 mark in video.

    How un-electric

    And this has to do with EVs…how?

      The McLaren P1 plugs in.

      Jay Leno does a tidy little review on the P1 – because (of course) he owns one:

        Ah, I did not know that. 🙂

      Not only that, but the power difference between these two vehicles is almost entirely thanks to the electric portion of the P1’s powertrain.

    Wow.

    If only I had a (spare) million dollars…

      As much as I’m an EV-fan boy, I still think the Lambo sounds better – bit more soul perhaps? Having said that, I love the noise the the new FormulaE makes!

    McLaren P1 for me!
    Why?
    Because it’s British AND the better car out of the two!
    No congestion charge in London too!

  5. Ryan says:

    That Lambo motor is a dinosaur. How will an ICE motor ever beat a hybrid or full electric?

    If Lamborghini can’t make a hybrid; they need to look into doing up a fast full electric. Fast ICE days are over.
