Watch a Twin-Turbo Lamborghini Attempt to Tow 10,000 Pounds
Lamborghini supercars are useful for lots of things. Track days, setting Nurburgring lap records, and even taking over a year to get! However, one of the last things you’ll typically think to ask when it comes to a Lamborghini is, “how much can it tow?” That being said, if that sort of thing has ever crossed your mind, you’re really going to get a kick out of this video.
The Twin-turbo Lamborghini Huracan pulls both an Audi RS6 and Lamborghini Urus
Alex Choi is a California-based Youtuber who is sort of notorious for answering questions nobody really asks. For example: how far can a Tesla fly before destroying a parked car? We don’t need to open that whole can of worms again, but there certainly was an answer to that question. In all fairness to Choi, if you’re unfamiliar, he was not behind the wheel of that flying Tesla. He is, however, behind the wheel of this Lamborghini because he owns it.
The car in question is a Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo Evo. If you’re not familiar with what that ensemble of words means, the Huracan Super Trofeo Evo is an actual Lamborghini racecar. However, Choi’s car is a “run-of-the-mill” Huracan that has been built to the moon to reflect the spirit of the Super Trofeo race cars. This twin-turbo Lamborghini puts out up to 1,500 horsepower. It’s pretty cool!
For this video, Choi had a class four hitch system installed on the Lamborghini. The hitch itself is rated to 15,000 pounds. However, as Choi explains in the video, the Huracan uses a hybrid chassis of carbon fiber and metal components. Only eight bolts hold the entire rear assembly to the car, so putting a tow hitch on certainly puts those joints under a lot of stress.
Much to Choi’s pleasure, though, the Huracan somehow pulls cars like a champ. Initially, he attempts to fit a Lamborghini Urus SUV on the trailer to create the opposite of a viral photo from last year where a Urus was towing a Lamborghini racecar. Though, the Urus was a bit too wide for the trailer. Instead, Choi opted to pull his Audi RS6 Avant.
Of course, burnouts ensued
Let’s be real here. It had to happen at this point.
Choi loads a friend’s Toyota pickup truck on the trailer and immediately does a hectic rolling burnout as the Huracan seems to (somewhat effortlessly) pull the truck and trailer as if it’s not even there. That’s no small feat, considering that truck and trailer likely weigh nearly double that of the twin-turbo Lamborghini itself.
Later on in the video, Choi makes his goofy dream come true and loads a Lamborghini Urus onto the trailer and takes it for a spin with the Huracan pulling the whole ensemble.
Unsurprisingly, there’s no shortage of hateful comments. That’s just how Youtube goes. However, Choi absolutely knew the risk he was taking with this endeavor, and he addressed it right off the bat. Sure, one could argue that the portion where he opts out of using the trailer lights or using the Uhaul trailer after the dealer told him he couldn’t pull with the car was in bad taste.
At the end of the day, though, he’s assuming the financial responsibility, and he certainly seems to have the funds to back up any damage that he causes. Nobody got hurt, and everyone in the video had a good time. That’s all that counts, right?
