2016 Lamborghini LP 580-2 vs 2016 Maserati Gran Turismo

Serving Paramus, NJ, Mahwah, and Ridgewood

If you are in the market for an Italian supercar, you won't find two better examples than the 2016 Lamborghini Huracan and the 2016 Maserati Gran Turismo. Both are expensive, track-worthy cars with elite performance and superb driving thrills. Although both are RWD coupes, the Huracan is a 2-seater, whereas the Maserati is a 4-seat subcompact. The Maserati is a fast car, the Huracan is even faster. You might be happy in either, but if you crave performance, you can't beat the Huracan.

DriveTrain

The 2016 Lamborghini Huracan LP 580-2 is equipped with a cross-flow-cooled 5.2L V10 40-valve engine that makes 572 horsepower and 397 lb-ft of torque. The power is distributed to the rear wheels by a 7 speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The 2016 Maserati Gran Turismo Sport features a 4.8L V8 that delivers 454 horsepower and 384 lb-ft of torque through a 6-speed automatic transmission. The Huracan has a 12.7:1 compression ratio, compared to 11.25:1 for the Gran Turismo.

Performance

Lamborghini Huracan LP 580-2 vs 2016 Maserati Gran Turismo

As you might imagine, the more powerful engine in the Lamborghini leaves the Maserati in the dust. The Huracan takes 3.4 seconds from 0 to 60 mph, and reaches a top speed of 199 mph. The Gran Turismo trails behind, requiring 4.7 seconds to reach 60 mph, and topping out at 185 mph. Despite its massive speed advantage, the Lamborghini has better fuel economy, especially on the highway. Part of the reason is that the aluminum/carbon fiber Huracan tips the scales with a dry weight of only 3,062 pounds, half a ton less than the 4,145-pound Gran Turismo.

 

Dimensions

The Lamborghini is a personal-sized 2-seater, lopping off nearly 20 inches of unnecessary length as compared to the Maserati. Yet the Huracan has a wider rear track, 63.8 inches, versus the Gran Turismo's 62.6 inches. This gives the Lamborghini unsurpassed nimbleness, stability and handling. The two cars have about the same width (without counting the side mirrors), but the Lamborghini sits 45.9 inches above the ground to 53.0 inches for the Maserati. This allows the Huracan to slice through the air with less resistance than possible for the Gran Turismo.

Features

For supercars in this price range, you expect a number of features beyond sheer power and performance, and you'll find many conveniences in both vehicles. Both cars feature ultra-premium leather seating and advanced navigation systems. However, if you want a rear-view camera, only the Lamborghini will suffice. Also, the Huracan offers a push-button system to lift the front-axle by an inch to avoid scraping.
