Anyone with a little brother knows that while you might mercilessly pick on your bro, anyone else who tries it gets a mouthful of fist. Apparently the same goes for Lamborghini. The Aventador SVJ was just sitting back and biding its time to go out and thrash the Porsche 911 GT2 RS after said vehicle put a beatdown on little brother Lambo Huracan Performante at the Nürburgring. Lambo hasn’t always had a reputation for handling and has typically been known more for straight-line speed and outright style.

The fastest production vehicle around the Green Hell was, until very recently, the Lamborghini Huracan Performante with a lap of 6:52.01. Porsche has taken the lap record back for the home team with a run around The Ring of 6:47.03 crushing the raging bull by nearly five seconds. That doesn't sound like much time, but on a race track five seconds is an eternity, the driver of that Lambo might not have even been able to see the 911 GT2 RS.
