997 GT2 vs. Murcielago LP-640 at the track

Discussion in 'Car Comparisons' started by ajzahn, Oct 12, 2008.

  1. In the real world they're both pretty much close enough to not make a difference. Choose whichever one you like more.
     
  2. were they "racing" them to see who wins over a set number of laps against another car, or merely tracking them for fun? its one thing to track a car, its another to be racing.

     
  3. tracking them for fun, but theyre still out there driving 10/10ths. Theyre obviously trying to not hit the other cars though, similar to a magazine.
     
  4. THE TIPICAL LAMBO-FANS.
    when the lambos:
    is slower on track: straight is more important
    is slower on straight: track is more important
    is slower on track and straight: price is more important
    is slower on track and straight and has high price: lambo is better, full stop.

  5. i'm not saying is better, but i was expecting a bigger gap between these cars.
     
  6. the gap is big enough when you look at the price and fuel consumption <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/wink.gif"></A>
     
  7. you are not adding anything new here, the engine of the lambo is twice the porsche one, the car weights 400 kgs more with 120 hp over the porsche, and it is AWD, so it's obvious that it uses way more fuel.
    And the gap i was talking about is in terms of speed, considering the fact that the lambo is older and way less track oriented than the gt2.
     
  8. exactly. to be "racing" them around a track would be something like what Best Motoring does. but I have seen many instances of supercars owners racing them in a striahgt line. obivously, even if the LP640's time was equal to that of the GT2's the Porsche is much more at home at the track than the lambo. not to say the GT2 is a track car, but its far more suited to the job than the 4000 lbs LP.
     
  9. and the typical ferrari fan is:

    is slower on track: straight is more important
    is slower on straight: track is more important
    is slower on track and straight: exclusivity
    is slower on track and straight and has high price: heritage, racing history, irrelevent F1 tech, passion blah blah, its better no matter what you say.
     
  10. Seems like the LP 560 would have been a better comparison.
     
  11. +1 so true..,...
     
  12. in the real world the LP640 doesnt look like a VW Beetle
     
  13. That's the thing, the LP560 and GT2 are compared all the time. Actually, it might be interesting to have an LP560 vs LP640 comparison test. More for the driving impressions than for numbers - personally I don't give a shit how many fractions of a second seperate two cars, track or straight.
     
  14.  
  15. I was expecting the VW to be faster.


    edit: LOLOLOL, they're both volsewagons
     
  16.  
  17. that goes for all typical fans for any car/s
     
  18. well duh, its a Lamborghini

    what about all those races on m5board.com.............. isn't that in Europe? I think it was either a swiss or swedish air field

     
  20. i wud prefer the lambo since porsche is pretty common to see these days, boxters,carreras,turbos,gt2,gt3,944,etc.
     
  21. Yeah, I see GT2s every day. Even though there's only 200 in the US.
     
  22. And a car that's got 130hp less than its competitor.

    I'm really suprised it was even that close...
     
  23. ya it is a surprise that a 4000 lbs murcielago stops nearly as quickly as a car thats 700 lbs lighter.
