Underground Racing’s Ferrari 458 Italia has been twin-turbocharged and packs 700-whp. Lamborghini‘s Aventador LP700-4 delivers 700-hp from the factory, so obviously it makes perfect sense to pit the two Italian exotics against one another in one awesome video.

Though the “racing” in the video isn’t exactly perfect in terms of judging which vehicle is truly better or faster, it’s worth watching to hear the sonorous note of two if Italy’s finest exotics.

The 458 features Underground Racing’s Stage 1 bolt-on turbo kit taking the factory 562-hp to a 700-whp on 93-octane pump gas. If you’re not aware of just how big a difference there is between 700-hp and 700 horsepower at the wheels, this video should clear things up pretty fast.

Underground Racing has promised a rematch of the two in the near future, just as soon as it preps a twin-turbo setup for the Aventador’s V12.

  • Looks to me like its a video for UR's kit.... seems like the Ferarri had a jump, and also had better gearing for the starting speed .... if it was a standing start, the Lambo would have won with AWD.... and even on a rolling start, gearing will make a HUGE difference.

    So the Ferrari need all that just to kinda beat the Aventador? Wonder what a twin turbo Aventador would do to that Ferrari?
