What happens when a 2015 Lamborghini Huracan faces off against a 2015 Dodge Hellcat in a street race? Well, you’ll have to watch the above video to find out. You were probably sold just based on the competitors alone, but this footage really is something else. Nothing better than a high-speed, high-stakes street race.
Stocked with a massive 6.2-liter HEMI V8 engine that packs 707 horsepower, the Hellcat was on a mission to raise absolute hell, and it certainly delivered. Someone should call the fire department, because that Lambo got SMOKED.
That “FATT CAT” license plate really just adds insult to injury. Talk about the ultimate dream crusher. Hard to recover from that one.
You might think that the Lamborghini would’ve put up a better fight, considering it has all-wheel drive and weighs less than the Hellcat. On paper, it’d be tough to call this match-up one way or another. But, the Hellcat’s monstrous V8 was not to be beaten. That’s just some beastly American muscle right there. It really doesn’t get much better than that.
Now, as it turns out, the Huracan was apparently “stolen” by a guy working for a car transporter company. Who knows how true that is, but it definitely makes for a good story. Some Gone in 60 Seconds type stuff. If this dude really did steal the supercar, though (and that’s a huge “if”), at least he was spared the embarrassment of forking over a quarter of a million dollars just to get beaten by a Dodge that only costs around $70k. But, hey, at least the Lambo looks good while losing.
