The Suped-Up Lamborghini Huracan – A Beast Unleashed


JM Imports has worked its magic on the Lamborghini Huracan, christened JM1800R, under the leadership of big kahuna Jurgen Vallons. The beast now possesses a staggering 1,775 horsepower and a torque of 1,106 pound-feet. A fully built 5.2-liter V10 now sits at the rear. Not stopping at the engine, the supercar also boasts an entirely constructed dual-clutch transmission alongside beefier axle shafts to handle the monstrous torque. There’s no denying this isn’t your everyday Huracan; it’s an upgraded monster.

Weighing approximately 1,650 kilograms (3,638 pounds), the JM1800R showcased its prowess by completing a quarter mile in 8.7 seconds. What’s more impressive? This was achieved on a regular runway, not a specialized drag strip!

Rimac Nevera – The Electric Dominator


Yet, the Lamborghini’s might was challenged by the Rimac Nevera, driven by none other than Mat Watson himself. With its four-motor electric setup, the Nevera completed the quarter mile just a smidge faster at 8.5 seconds.

The Rimac hypercar, limited to just 150 units worldwide and weighing around 2,300 kilograms (5,070 pounds), is light by no means. But what it packs in weight, it compensates with power – a whopping 1,888 horsepower and a torque of 1,741 lb-ft, to be exact. It’s no wonder the Nevera holds records at the Nurburgring Nordschleife and the Goodwood Hillclimb.

Rimac Nevera VS Lamborghini Huracan Drag Race

Round 1

The Lamborghini couldn’t compete with the Rimac from a rolling start to the half-mile. The electric-powered Rimac boasts lightning-quick acceleration that the turbocharged Huracan couldn’t match. Consequently, the Rimac swiftly took the lead at the race’s outset and clinched the first round.

Round 2

The Huracan had a noticeably better start in the second round, briefly taking the lead. However, the Rimac quickly closed the gap and overtook the Huracan, securing a double win.

Despite its twin-turbocharged power, the Huracan was consistently outperformed by the Rimac Nevera in these drag races. While the Rimac Nevera completed the quarter-mile in 8.5 seconds, the Huracan finished just slightly behind at 8.7 seconds.

Complimentary Braking Test

When braking from 100 mph, the Huracan managed to stop at a shorter distance than the Nevera. This was attributed to the Huracan’s lighter weight compared to the Rimac. This was the singular event where the Huracan outshone the Nevera.

Future of Lamborghini: An Electrified Transformation

But Lamborghini isn’t just looking back at this drag race; it has an electrified future ahead. The successor to the Huracan is expected in 2024 for the 2025 model year. Following the electrification trend, it will be a plug-in hybrid, like the Revuelto, which combines a V12 with three electric motors.

However, this successor will trade two of its cylinders for twin-turbochargers, resulting in a distinct twin-turbo V8 roar. Interestingly, it won’t be on the same platform as the current Huracan or the Audi R8. Instead, it might borrow heavily from the Revuelto’s carbon-fiber monocoque.


The drag race between the Rimac Nevera and the JM1800R Lamborghini Huracan isn’t just about who won or lost. It’s a testament to how far automotive engineering has come and where it’s headed. Electric might be the future, but the soul-stirring roars of engines like the V10 and V8 aren’t going away anytime soon. In this thrilling clash of titans, fans worldwide got a glimpse of the present and future of supercars. And it looks exhilarating.
