Porsche GT2 RS vs Lamborghini Huracan EVO

Yellow Porsche GT2 RS and yellow Lamborghini Huracan EVO
Your friends at Porsche of Oklahoma City are proud to boast that Porsche continues to be an outstanding figure in the world of top-performance vehicles. The decades old line of Porsche 911’s has evolved into the Porsche GT2 RS, one of the fastest vehicles on the market that is street legal. The most recent model of the GT2 RS is in a class of its own, and through its specs and overall performance you can easily see the differences between its ability versus that of other vehicles including the Lamborghini Huracan EVO. Although the Huracan is a shining beacon on behalf of the Lamborghini lineup, there is hardly a leap of faith required when understanding why the GT2 RS is the better pick.

A Push to Be the Best

The Porsche GT2 RS is the culmination of years of technical development based on the original Porsche 911. Originally developed in 1993, Porsche has added exciting upgrades such as a twin turbocharged engine, lighter weight materials, and a more minimalistic approach to its interior components. As a result, the GT2 RS is now the fastest model among the infamous 911 Lineup.
The technical specifications of this vehicle are simply astounding. The vehicle generates 700 horsepower with superior handling, braking control, and cornering speeds. A massive push of 553 lb-ft of torque generates an outstanding initial acceleration of 0-60 in 2.6 seconds and positively flattens the quarter mile stretch in 10.3 seconds.

The Huracan EVO’s capability leaves very little to be desired by performance enthusiasts everywhere, as it still remains a wonderfully performing vehicle. However, when compared side by side with the GT2 RS there is little doubt that once again, Porsche pulls ahead. The Huracan Evo, although with a lesser price tag, tops out at 630 horsepower, putting it at a disadvantage over the GT2 RS’s control capabilities. The engine on the Lamborghini Huracan Evo has an output of 44 lb-ft of torque, slowing its 0-60 acceleration rate to 2.9 seconds or 3.3 seconds for its RWD model. Overall, the two models are very close in performance, but those little differences put Porsche miles ahead of the competition.

Performance Variations

One of the biggest differentiations between the Porsche GT2 RS and the Lamborghini Huracan EVO comes down to the tires. Porsche and Michelin worked together to build on an already existing tire series, the Pilot Sport Cup 2, to develop the N2 variation. This tire is wider than many used in a similar class of the GT2 RS, which results in a superior grip on the roadways. This specific tire was used to beat out the competition in the 2018 Nürburgring race, which led to amazing performance and stellar speeds around corners, differing elevations, and even during periods of heavy braking.

Both vehicles also lack active aerodynamics, which for Lamborghini is a departure from the Huracan’s predecessor the Performante. Both vehicles do, however, have an outstanding capability for generating downforce. The reworked rear of the 2020 Huracan EVO generates more downforce than its predecessors but doesn’t quite compare to the max downforce of the Porsche GT2 RS which tops out at nearly 1000 pounds with its manually adjustable rear wing.
