Lamborghini Aventador Roadster vs Ferrari 458 Spider drag race

Which supercar will end up with bragging rights after a blast down the drag strip?

If you're buying a supercar, chances are you'd quite like bragging rights one way or another - whether it's the most expensive, the best-looking, or even the fastest car. If you find yourself torn between a glamorous Ferrari 458 Italia or a brutal Lamborghini Aventador, then this drag race might help you in your decision.

Underneath its curvy body, the Ferrari packs a 4.4-litre V8 engine (4.5-litres in the hard-top) with 562bhp and 540Nm of torque on offer. This pales in comparison to the sharp-edged Lamborghini though, which being a 50th Anniversary model serves up a devastating 720bhp.

The Ferrari is lighter than the Lamborghini, but doesn't benefit from four-wheel drive like that car does. Take your bets on which will cross the line first, then watch the video to find out!
