Hybrid Supercar Drag Race: Lamborghini Revuelto Vs Ferrari SF90 Vs Porsche 918

  • The Porsche 918, Ferrari SF90, and Lamborghini Revuelto all leverage hybrid technology.
  • Despite coming out across different years in the last decade, they perform similarly in a drag race.
  • Here’s one of our first chances to see how Lamborghini’s latest flagship does when head-to-head with rivals.

Product specifications tell us a lot about the Lamborghini Revuelto, but how it performs in the real world tells us more. Stacking it up against two other hybrid supercars says even more. Here’s a chance to see it go head to head with a Ferrari SF90 and the legendary Porsche 918.

var adpushup = window.adpushup = window.adpushup || {que:[]};
adpushup.que.push(function() {
if (adpushup.config.platform !== “DESKTOP”){
adpushup.triggerAd(“4d84e4c9-9937-4f84-82c0-c94544ee6f2a”);
}
else{

adpushup.triggerAd(“6a782b01-facb-45f3-a88f-ddf1b1f97657”);
} });

The Revuelto is Lamborghini’s latest supercar flagship. It leverages a 6.5-liter V12 and a trio of electric motors to make 1,001 hp (746 kW) and 783 lb-ft (1,062 Nm) of torque. It then sends all of that oomph to all four wheels through an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox.

It’s taking on a Ferrari SF90 with a 4-liter V8 also equipped with three electric motors for a total of 986 hp (735 kW) and 589 lb-ft (800 Nm) of torque. While it also uses all-wheel drive, it’s worth noting that it weighs roughly 440 lbs (200 kg) less than the Lambo. Finally, there’s the Porsche 918, a car originally part of the initial ‘Holy Trinity’ of hybrid supercars.

window._taboola = window._taboola || [];
_taboola.push({
mode: ‘thumbnails-a-mid’,
container: ‘taboola-mid-article’,
placement: ‘Mid Article’,
target_type: ‘mix’
});

window._taboola = window._taboola || [];
_taboola.push({
mode: ‘thumbnails-oc-2×1’,
container: ‘taboola-mid-article-thumbnails-organic’,
placement: ‘Mid Article Thumbnails Organic’,
target_type: ‘mix’
});

It makes just 874 hp (651 kW) but packs 943 lb-ft (1,280 Nm) of torque from its 4.6-liter hybrid V8. It splits the weight figures of the other two cars as well so on paper it’s probably closer than many realize. How will they all manage in a series of drag races? There’s only one way to find out.

In race one, the Revuelto leaps out to a car-length lead while the Porsche quickly fades into the background due to a bad launch. About mid-way down the 1/4-mile, the Ferrari begins to gain on the raging bull and manages to reel it in and pass it before the line. Could it be that Carwow’s Matt Watson missed a shift? No, he says, having evidently left the car in automatic mode the whole way down the track.

In race two, the Ferrari, driven by the Revuelto owner, bogs down off of the line which provides an even greater lead from which to work for the Lamborghini. Despite that, the SF90 manages to nearly overtake it again but what’s most interesting is the Porsche stays neck and neck with the Ferrari.

Finally, in race three, the driver’s swap and the SF90 absolutely walks the Lamborghini and the Porsche. Again though, the 918 is close, not even a single car-length behind the all-new Lamborghini flagship. These anecdotal results don’t really prove anything aside from the fact that the Porsche 918 is still a blistering fast supercar, even against all-new metal. 

var adpushup = window.adpushup = window.adpushup || {que:[]};
adpushup.que.push(function() {
if (adpushup.config.platform !== “DESKTOP”){
adpushup.triggerAd(“5646c171-cb6e-4e2c-8440-49013ca72758”);
}
else{

adpushup.triggerAd(“e7c4c913-3924-4b2d-9279-6c00984dd130”);
} });
