If all the drag racing stars align, the drag race involving the Audi R8 R8 V10 Plus and the Ferrari 488 Spider is the match made in heaven, even though things might not seem like that judging simply be a power-to-weight ratio of the two supercars.
You see, and even in open-top form, the Prancing Horse comes with 2.6 kilograms per each pony, and while the Lambo Huracan’s German sibling burdens each of its horses with 2.9 kilograms.
In the torque department, a twin-turbo nature of the Maranello machine once again gives it the edge compared to an Ingolstadt fighter, since we are looking at 760 Nm (560 lb-ft) vs. 560 Nm (413 lb-ft), respectively.
Nevertheless, if we’re to look at the quarter-mile numbers of the two, and we notice that while the Ferrari needs 10.6 seconds to cover a task, the Audi is 0.1 seconds quicker – the all-wheel-drive advantage of the Audi R8 obviously does its job here.
But the times we mentioned above were achieved in ideal conditions, and we hear you say. And you are right, which is why we have decided to bring along the random real-life encounter of the R8 V10 Plus and the Ferrari 488 Spider.
The two mid-engined animals met during the recent drag racing event held on the Old Continent, engaging in the 1/4-mile brawl after each of them had duked it out with the other machines.
The said race involved the human Christmas Tree, but it seems that things didn’t exactly go smooth during a take-off phase of the race.
While the Ferrari is out of the frame, well, we can check out the shadow of the 488 Spider – notice that the Fezza takes off way after the Audi R8, allowing the Audi to turn its all-paw asset into the crushing one.
As for what happens once the two go-fast devils get up to speed, you will find that out once you reach for the play button below.
