Is The Lamborghini Urus Immune To The 770 HP Shelby F-150 Super Snake’s Bite?

The Lamborghini Urus needs no introduction. It’s the brand’s first modern-day high-rider, shares its platform with other flagship SUVs from the VW Group and has a whopping amount of power.

With 641 HP and 627 lb-ft (850 Nm) of torque produced by its twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8, it does the 0 to 60 mph (0-96 km/h) in just 3.5 seconds and runs out of breath at 190 mph (306 km/h).

Many fast vehicles have fallen victim to the Urus so far, including some that were more powerful, so is the Shelby F-150 Super Snake going to be one of them? The tuned pickup truck boasts a neck-snapping 770 HP from its supercharged 5.0-liter V8, which translates in just 3.45 seconds needed to hit the 60 mph (96 km/h) mark, according to Shelby, and a 0-100-0 mph (0-161-0 km/h) of 8.3 seconds.

Other highlights include an aftermarket suspension, Borla exhaust system, uprated brakes and 22-inch wheels shod in grippy tires. To make sure that no one mistakes the Super Snake for the regular Ford F-150, Shelby has also modified it inside and out, with custom bumper, grille, splitter, badging and racing stripes, a leather interior, new gauges, racing pedals and tinted windows. The 770 HP variant starts at almost $94,000, whereas the 395 HP non-supercharged model is priced from nearly $86,100.

Now, does this tuned pickup truck have what it takes to put the big, bad Lambo in its corner? Head on down to see them go head-to-head in a couple of drag races from a standing and a rolling start.
