The Dodge Demon and Lamborghini Huracan are two very potent machines from two very different backgrounds. The Demon is U.S. home grown and built on the wet dreams of modern muscle fanboys. The Huracan, on the other hand, is a fine, Italian-bred machine the feeds on just about anything that’s not exotic without fear. On paper, the Demon should spank the hell out of the Huracan without question – it’s deliver more than 250 ponies more than the Huracan when running on premium fuel. It’s also a purpose-built drag car with the qualifications to hit the road. The Huracan on the other hand is a little more mild and built more for showing off downtown than it is spanking over-tuned rice burners on the track.
Be that as it may, Drag Times decided to line these two bad boys up. So how does one of Italy’s finest compete with some American muscle? Well, there are some mixed results and while the Demon does spank the hell out of the Huracan at one point, it all boils down to reaction time and quality of launch – something that allowed the Huracan to win twice. The other thing to keep in mind is that, while the Demon has a published quarter-mile time of 9.65 seconds, its real straight-line performance is dependent on track and weather conditions, among other things.
