We have seen Top Gear’s race between the Bugatti Veyron and the Euro Fighter Typhoon. Now, Denmark’s Bil Magasinet, the country’s most read and purchased car magazine, has released a new video that shows a Lamborghini Aventador racing against an F-16 Fighting Falcon.

In the past, air power has always reigned supreme. Will the result be different this time round? Before going into the race, let’s look at the credentials of both of these contestants.

The Aventador features a 6.5-liter V12 engine with 690 hp and 690 Nm of torque. It is connected to a single clutch seven-speed transmission built by Graziano Trasmissioni. This enables the 1575 kg supercar to sprint from 0-100 km/h in 2.9 seconds before hiting a top speed of 350 km/h.

The F-16 Fighting Falcon is a multirole jet fighter aircraft originally developed by General Dynamics for the United States Air Force (USAF). Designed as an air superiority day fighter, it evolved into a successful all-weather multirole aircraft. There are a few engines used by the F-16 throughout its production life cycle, unlike the Aventador.

The first powerplant selected for the single-engined F-16 was the Pratt & Whitney F100-PW-200 afterburning turbofan, producing a thrust of 106.0 kN. After that, General Electric supplied the F110-GE-100 turbofan to the F-16, which increased the thrust to 114.5KN. The most powerful F-16 is fitted with GE’s F110-GE-132 turbofan, which is rated at a maximum thrust of 144.6KN. The purchase is made by The UAE.

Get your popcorns ready and enjoy the video!

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
