• A trio of Lamborghini models line up for this drag race. 

• The Urus, Aventador SV Roadster and Huracan Performante do battle.

• The SV Roadster has the most power at 560kW, while the Urus has the highest torque with 850Nm.

Lamborghini fan boys and girls are in for a treat today. Drag races are all the rage over the net, and here's another one from the team over at Carwow

They've lined up the Italian carmaker's latest SUV, the Urus, up against supercar royalty in the form of the Aventador SV Roadster, and the Huracan Performante. 

The Urus' inclusion can be frowned upon because it weighs 2.2 tonnes and only has seven more kilowatts than the Huracan. 

However it's placement can be accounted for when one looks at its maximum torque figure. The four-litre twin turbo engine produces 850Nm to go along with the 484kw. Impressive. 

It's the only forced induction engine of the trio. Lamborghini claims a sprint time from standstill to 100km/h in 3.6 seconds. 

The Aventador SV Roadster proposes nothing less than a 6.5-litre naturally-aspirated V12 engine with 560kW and 690Nm. It has a lot more power than the Urus but loses out in the torque stakes. The SV has a claimed 0-100km/h sprint time of 2.9 seconds. 

The Performante employs a V10 engine with a displacement of 5.2-litres and has 477kW and 600Nm. It weighs 1380kg in comparison to the SV's 1525kg. 

It dispatches the 0-100km/h time in a manic 2.6 seconds and onto a 328km/h top speed. 

Who will win this epic drag race? Well the easy money is on the SV as it the most power but weighs 200kg more than the Huracan. 

The four wheel drive Urus definitely has a good traction system and puts its power down efficiently. In fact it's startling to see how it performs in this drag race. 

Okay, that's it enough from us. Enjoy the video below. 

Carwow says: It's the one you Lambo fanboys have been waiting for - a three-way Lamborghini showdown! First up we have Mat in the Urus, which has a four-litre twin-turbo V8 with 484kW and 850Nm of torque.

Next up is the Aventador SV Roadster. It has a 6.5-litre V12 that'll produce 560kW and 690Nm of torque! And last up we have the Huracan Performante, with a 5.2-litre V10 which produces 477kW and 600Nm of torque.
