They will not be the quickest autos on the planet, nor born on the drag strip, however the Rolls-Royce Wraith and Lamborghini Urus did get collectively to show what they’re product of in a straight-line acceleration check.
Performed by Hennessey on the Pennzoil Proving Grounds, the grand tourer and the tremendous SUV have been subjected to 1 / 4 mile dash check, from a standing and a rolling begin, to raised spotlight the variations between them.
Here’s a factor, although: in contrast to the Wraith, the Urus will not be inventory. It’s outfitted with Hennessey’s HPE750 performance package, which has liberated 750 horsepower from the twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 because of new internals and an ECU remap, dropping the 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) time to 2.65 seconds.
Compared to the inventory Italian tremendous SUV, which has 641 HP and 627 lb-ft (850 Nm) and does the 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in 3.5 seconds, with a 190 mph (305 km/h) prime velocity, it’s considerably sooner. And to make sure that nobody errors it for a plain Jane Urus, it options customized ‘Hennessey’ and ‘HPE750’ emblems, and two serial numbered plaques, one on the sprint and one on the engine.
The Wraith is over 500 lbs (230 kg) heavier than the Urus, however we wouldn’t name it a slouch, contemplating that its 6.6-liter twin-turbocharged V12 produces 624 HP and 605 lb-ft (820 Nm) of torque. From relaxation to 60 mph (96 km/h), the British ultra-luxury coupe takes solely 4.5 seconds, and prime velocity is restricted at 155 mph (250 km/h).
It appears then that the Urus has a transparent benefit on paper, particularly with the Hennessey tune put in, however how does this truly translate on the drag strip?
