YiChe, one of China’s top car publications, recently lined up a Lamborghini Aventador SVJ and a Koenigsegg Agera R on a dusty airport runway for a supercar drag race.





The Aventador SVJ is currently the most powerful Lamborghini that can be purchased in China, while the Agera R, with a top speed of 273 mph, held many land speed records.

To film the battle of the supercar heavyweights, YiChe employed the services of all-electric NIO EP9 sports car since a really fast camera car is needed to chase down racing supercars.

The Aventador SVJ pulls away from the Agera R off the line and held onto its lead till it crossed the quarter-mile marker in 12.34 seconds at 191.2 km/hr (118.8 mph).

Swedish supercar Koenigsegg came second but finished strongly at 199.1 km/h, crossing the line after 13.17 seconds.

However, the quickest car during the drag race wasn’t the Lamborghini, but the 1,341-hp Chinese-made NIO EP9 that was used to film the race.

Despite starting a further back than the Lamborghini and Koenigsegg, the all-electric NIO EP9, decked with cameras, still passes and dusts the two European models.

Thanks to its instantaneous torque, it can hit 62 mph (100 km/h) in 2.7 seconds, 124 mph (200 km/h) in 7.1 seconds, and 186 mph (300 km/h) in 15.9 seconds. It has a top speed of 194mph.
