Oct 20, 2021 - By Chris Weiss

It may not be an all out Italian grudge-fest between the 599 GTB and the Murcielago LP640, but it’s a pretty sweet cross-country rivalry just the same. In a test by Road & Track, drivers took the 570-hp 4.5-liter V8-powered 458 Italia and the 562-hp V10-powered Gallardo Superleggera head to head. In case you think that either has a clear advantage, the numbers argue against it. In addition to their similar output figures, the cars have a weight difference of a mere 20 lbs., produce the same 398 lb-ft of torque and both have listed top speeds of 202 mph.

It turns out to be a very intriguing match-up and the only way you’ll find out who wins is by getting to the end of the video at Road & Track. They also have a full write-up for all the details.
