It’s been more than a decade since the Lamborghini Aventador was launched, and to get it in style, CarWow has recently arranged an epic drag race among the major variants introduced year after year.
The first of the models included in the race is the original Aventador, powered by a 6.5-liter naturally ambitious V12 that produces 690 hp and 509 lb-ft (690 Nm) of torque. Even though it is over 10 years old, it is still a remarkable performance car and turns head on unlike anything else on the road.
The second car that CarWow brought was the Aventador SV. It debuted in 2015 as a hardcore variant of the mid-engine supercar and, in addition to some aerodynamic upgrade features, has a slightly larger grant with 740 hp and weighs less than 50 kg (110 lb).

Joining these two is the Aventador S which was launched as a mid-life refresh for the Italian supercar. It produces 730 hp and 509 lb-ft from its V12. The final two models brought for performance testing were the Aventador SVJ with 759 hp and 531 lb-ft (731 Nm) and the brand new Aventador Ultimae with 769 hp and 531 lb-ft (731 Nm).
Before the race started, however, there was a problem. The accompanying Ultimai watch only touched more than 100 miles, and as such, the launch control system could not be enabled. As a result, it has been removed from the test.
In the first race, the driver of the Aventador SV got the best launch and won. Both the Aventador S and SVJ rocket very well from the line, throwing the others into the dust to make things match more evenly in the second race.
In the third and final race, SV got the best launch but it and S and SV all crossed the finish line in just 10.8 seconds. However, it was the regular S that finished roughly an inch ahead of the others.
