Feature Flick: Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder Races A Stunt Plane

Mismatched races are always fun. Whether its car versus car or car versus motorcycle, they’re all entertaining to watch. Perhaps the most interesting matchup though is car versus plane. That’s what the folks over at Evo recently did. They put a Lamborghini Gallardo LP-570-4 Spyder Performante up against an Extra EA-300LP stunt plane. The race? One lap around the Bedford Autodrome in England.

At first glance, this may seem like an unfair pairing. It’s an airplane after all, that’s being put up against a car. However, if we compare the specs of the two, the race should be fairly close. The Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder puts out 562-hp from its 5.2-liter V-10. The Extra stunt plane cranks out 296-hp through an air cooled flat-six. Advantage: Lambo. However, while the Gallardo can pull a little over 1G in cornering, the Extra can pull over 10Gs. Advantage: Extra. As you can see, this is makes for a pretty interesting matchup. Check out the video below to see who won.
