There is always some attraction towards any car including V10, but in different eras, different V10 cars have reigned supreme. A recent video from Throttle House decides to compare the Lexus LFA and the Lamborghini Huracan STO in a race against each other, comparing the best two V10-powered cars of two different decades.
For comparison, the Lexus produces 552 hp (560 PS / 412 kW) and 354 lb-ft (480 Nm) of torque and weighs 3,263 lb (1,480 kg). The Lamborghini 630 hp (639 PS / 470 kW) and 416 lb-ft (564 Nm), and its 3,172 lb (1,439 kg) carb weight is slightly less than the LFA. As mentioned earlier, both cars are powered by the Sonoras V10, but as good as the Huracan sounds, the F1-esque produced by LFA’s Yamaha-tuned V10 cannot easily beat the symphony of noise. That being said, based on numbers alone, Lamborghini will have no problem winning this competition.

Coming into the first drag race, the STO does not have the AWD advantage that is capable of claiming most of the Huracan range, but with a medium engine, it still distributes more optimal weight than the LFA. Surprisingly, though, the LFA was actually able to jump into Huracan in the beginning and beat it to the finish line despite Lamborghini’s best efforts to get back to the end. Repeating the drag race again for any launch or transfer error, Huracan traveled predictably fast and crossed the finish line five cars ahead of LFA. In the roll race, a similar result comes, but you can see the results of each competition for yourself in the video below.
