Who doesn’t love a good drag race? We sure do, as we recently raced a Lamborghini Aventador against a McLaren MP4-12C, and a Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport. In Denmark, there was someone who had a similar idea. But instead of racing an Aventador against another supercar, he raced it against an F-16 Fighting Falcon.
This particular race is between a Royal Danish Air Force F-16 and a gorgeous black Lamborghini Aventador. As is the case with nearly all car versus jet fighter races, this one is a straight-up drag race run on parallel runways. A quick look at the stats reveals that the odds are clearly stacked in the F-16’s favor. Though the Lambo is powered by a 6.5-liter 691 hp and 509 lb-ft V-12 and is armed with all-wheel drive, the F-16 uses a General Electric F110 turbofan jet engine, which produces 28,600 lb-ft of thrust with the afterburner lit-up.
Clearly, it’s not a match up to be missed. Check out the epic F-16 and Aventador drag race below to see which engineering marvel finishes first.
