Watch Lamborghini Huracan race a Russian SU-27 Flanker jet fighter [video]

This never gets old. Top Gear started it all with a Bugatti Veyron racing a Eurofighter. After that there have been plenty of videos, with high exotic cars racing fighter jets and here is the latest all the way from Russia, showing an all-wheel drive 602bhp Lamborghini Huracan race a Sukhoi Su-27 Flanker jet fighter on a closed runway.

The Su-27 has its closest US counterpart in the F-15 Eagle and it entered service with the Soviet Air Force in 1985.

The twin-engined compact fighter has a 2,193-mile range and in addition to Russia is also used in Angola, China, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Indonesia, Kazakhstan, Ukraine and Vietnam.

Obviously once in air the SU-27 is very fast, but how does it compare to the Huracan when still on the ground? Hit play to see the race between an Italian supercar and a Soviet time fighter jet to find out which one is faster on the ground.
