We picked on the chromosomes pun and named this duo “The Chrome-somes” because these two rides donning flashy anodized colours have huge racing DNAs in their lineage. To be specific, the Ducati Panigale 899 in chrome red spray versus the Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 in chrome pink wrap. A superbike with incredible performance designed to dominate both track and street versus a Libertywalk + Novitec kitted supercar with a performance of epic proportions.
Some numbers to note and compare. The AWD Aventador comes with a 6.5L V12 engine and produces 700 horses at 8000 rpm and 509 pound-feet of torque at 5500 rpm, enabling it to do the century run in 2.9 seconds at an electronically limited top speed of 350 km/h. It delivers a power to weight ratio of 2.25 kg per horse as compared to the superbike’s 1.3 kg per horse, almost doubling it. The Panigale’s Superquadro two-cylinder engine on the other hand makes 148 horses at over 10,000 rpm and produces 73 pound-feet of torque. Hypothetically, the 899 will jump off the line faster than the Aventador but it will not be able to dominate for long. Someday, we might just propose this race. Someday.
