On the surface, the Lamborghini Huracan and the McLaren 570S may seem like rather similar vehicles, They both are two-seat supercars with a mid-engine and they both are available as either hardtops or convertibles. That’s about where the similarities end though. See what we mean as we explore these two supercars in our Lamborghini Huracan vs McLaren 570S comparison. We’ll look at power, drivetrain, speed, and more as we attempt to discover which supercar has more to offer.

Horsepower is an important stat to consider when comparing mid-engine supercars like the Huracan and the 570S. Here, the Huracan pulls out ahead as the clear winner with 11 more horsepower, but that is only telling part of the story. That horsepower figure is for the rear-wheel-drive Huracan, but Huracan LP610-4 AWD gives you 610 horsepower, and the top Huracan Performante LP640-4 AWD model gives you even more.
Just as important as that power figure is the engine that power is coming from. In the case of the McLaren 570S, it comes from a twin-turbo V8. A turbo means turbo lag and a turbo V8 means an unappealing sound that won’t evoke the feeling and sensation you want from a supercar. On the other hand, the Huracan stays true to its roots and sticks with a naturally-aspirated V10 that can take your breath away with its sound alone.
The Huracan Performante is the ultimate performance version of the V10 supercar. With it comes even more power at 630 horsepower, standard all-wheel drive, and a lightning fast 0-62 MPH (0-100km/h) time of just 2.9 seconds. The Huracan Performante is so fast, that in 2016 it took the top spot on the Nürburgring production car leaderboards. Only to be passed slightly by the Porsche 911 GT2 RS.
It was a spot that would eventually be retaken by the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ in 2018. The McLaren 570 has no spot on the Nürburgring production car leaderboards. In fact, the car company has very few entries on the leaderboards at all.
