Lamborghini Aventador Takes On F-16 (Video)

There's something incredibly engaging about supercar races. Years upon years of technology, research, engineering and testing boiled down into a singular moment that answers the most pressing of questions: Which one is faster?

As great as it is to watch two supercars compete on the track, it can be even more interesting when a supercar takes on a jet. Much like the match-up of heavyweight boxer and UFC champion, there's something intriguing about two masters from different genres going head to head. In this particular match-up, the latest Lambo takes on an F-16 fighter jet.

The Lamborghini Aventador may include some jet fighter-inspired design clues, but its lack of wings and jet engine would lead us to believe that it doesn't stand a chance racing the F-16. On the other hand, it’s far lighter weight and ground-based aerodynamics might allow the Aventador to compete if the track is short enough.

Clearly more of a publicity stunt than a serious race, the Aventador v. F-16 was set up by Danish auto publication Bil Magasinet.

In a dramatic run-up to the race, a crew prepares the F-16 for flight while the Aventador does some V-12-screeching warm-up laps in the background. The jet rolls slowly out of its massive hangar and lines up with the Aventador. Since a strip of grass separates the two vehicles, you don't get to see the F-16's sharp nose towering above the Aventador's own pointy front fascia, but it's clear they both mean business. Within a few seconds, they're off.

And that's about all we'll give away - hit play to see if the race unfolds as you'd expect. There really are no losers in this one.
