Murder Nova 1400HP Fire Donk Destroys Lamborghini Aventador on The Highway!!

Updated: Mar 12, 2023

Automotive enthusiasts come in all shapes and sizes, and their tastes in cars vary as much as they do. On today’s episode of things you’re not likely to ever see, we have two vehicles matched in a roll race that are polar opposites in almost every way. One of Europe’s finest Italian supercars versus the “Fire Donk,” a 1974 Caprice convertible that would typically never be described using words like high-performance, fast, or powerful. Until now, that is.

What Ellington has never done, though, in his long and illustrious street racing career, is roll race. Even though roll racing and dig racing seem incredibly similar as they both take place in the streets and sometimes even involve the same cars, the nuances make these two different forms of competition incredibly different in nature.

The “Fire Donk,” is no ordinary custom Caprice. But don’t let its show-car appearance fool you. It has plenty of race car tech hidden under its large-by-huge body. For starters, its chassis is set up similarly to Shawn’s other race cars. It has an adjustable four-link rear suspension with QA1 coilovers, and up front are tubular upper and lower control arms with coilovers, also from QA1. For motivation, the Fire Donk uses a Texas Speed and Performance-built LSX 427 with a 98mm Precision turbo, a Rossler TH400, and a Quick Performance rearend. Everything you expect to see on any other race car is found here. This combination is capable of 2,000 horsepower, and according to Shawn in this video, it’s currently making approximately 1,400 horsepower.

Sitting in stark contrast to the Fire Donk is its opponent. The 2017 Lamborghini Aventador SV, owned by Felipe Resende, quintessentially represents everything a 1974 Caprice is not. Every part of the SV is built for high performance, speed, and handling. Even its name, Super Veloce, means Super Fast. From its aluminum and carbon fiber construction to its 750-horsepower V12 engine and all-wheel-drive system, the Aventador SV is intended for one purpose, and that is being driven at its limits. This particular example even features a couple of modifications in the form of an aftermarket exhaust and tune.

Fortunately for Ellington, his sneaky sleeper has quite a bit of power on tap itself. In fact, when operating at 25 psi of boost, the car is able to crank out 1400 hp. However, the fact that it’s as aerodynamic as a brick and features a set of huge wheels that certainly aren’t helping traction both contribute to the fact that maybe the Lamborghini has a chance.
