Ferrari and Lamborghini may share their Italian supercar roots, but the two take different approaches to their products. Ferraris tend to be rear-wheel drive while all-wheel drive is the standard configuration on Lamborghinis. This difference is also noticeable on the track, although each is equipped with a high-powered powertrain. The latest DragTimes YouTube video has the Ferrari F8 Tributo 2020 lining up against the 2020 Lamborghini Huracan Evo.
The Ferrari is powered by a 3.9-liter twin-turbocharged V8 developing 710 horsepower (529 kilowatts). That’s a bit more than the naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V10 developing 630 hp (469 kW) in the Lamborghini. However, while the Ferrari sends power to the rear wheels, the Lamborghini powers all four. Each car is equipped with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.
The two compete in three-quarter-mile drag races, with the Ferrari winning all three. The first race gave the Lamborghini a considerable lead out of the shaft as the Ferrari sought traction. However, as soon as the prancing horse found him, he started to stagger in the Lamborghini before taking the lead just before the finish. The F8 finished the race in 10.450 seconds at 136.8 miles per hour (220.2 kilometers per hour). It took the Evo 10.663 seconds to reach 209.3 km / h.

The start of race two caught the sleeping Lamborghini as the tree turned green, giving the Ferrari a lead the Evo couldn’t overcome. However, the Lamborghini still finished the race in 10.661 seconds at 129.97 mph (209.2 km / h). The Ferrari’s time was 10.335 to 138.09 mph (222.2 km / h). The third race was similar to the first, with the Lamborghini’s all-wheel drive helping it at the start; however, that was not enough to keep the more powerful Ferrari at bay. The final race saw the Ferrari clock 10.389 seconds at 137.18 mph (220.8 km / h) while the Lamborghini finished in 10.791 seconds at 129.57 mph (208.5 km / h).
