England versus Italy
Some of the quickest crossovers available today are the Aston Martin DBX and the Lamborghini Urus. These fancy performance high-riders have already met challenges on the drag strip. Due to a significant power advantage, Italy was victorious that day.
Under the hood of both crossovers are twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engines. The DBX’s AMG-sourced engine produced 542 horsepower (405 kilowatts) and 516 pound-feet (700 Newton-meters) of torque at the time. The Urus, on the other hand, has 641 horsepower (478 kilowatts) and torque of 627 pound-feet (850 Newton-meters). Against the Lamborghini, the Aston Martin was unable to overcome the power disparity.
Instead of returning to the drag strip with the same engine, the DBX does so with greater muscle under the hood. While the 4.0-liter twin-turbo engine remains the same, the Aston Martin now produces 697 horsepower (520 kilowatts) and 664 pound-feet (900 Newton-meters) of torque. As a result of its 707 PS metric horsepower rating, this DBX is known as the 707.
This time, the Lamborghini is on the losing end of the race. To the Briton, it loses 56 horsepower (41.7 kilowatts) and 37 pound-feet (50 Newton-meters) of torque. Although the Urus is lighter, it may not be enough to defeat the Aston Martin this time.
Despite the fact that the drag race was held in damp circumstances, the results were constant. The Lamborghini was finally beaten by the Aston Martin. In the quarter-mile run, the DBX was three-tenths of a second ahead of the Urus, and the DBX drew away as the race approached the one-mile mark. The Urus strove to keep up with the DBX in the rolling drag race, but the latter’s horsepower advantage meant the Lambo had to settle for second place. There is one challenge where the Urus beat the DBZ fair and square, but you’ll have to watch the video to know where it won.
