Rat Rod vs Lamborghini Aventador! Roadkill Episode 5


if you had twenty-four hours with these
two cars
what would you do

as it turns out our company is sort of
annoyed with all that dirt ball stuff
that we’ve been doing on road kill so
they threw money at us they give a six
thousand dollars
so we went and rented this Lamborghini
Aventador that’s like
that’s like four dollars a minute for
the next 24 hours that’s like
if you’re from Alabama that’s your
mortgage for about
seven or eight months that car cost
as much as my house the tax on it is
as much as we pay you in a year that hurts
this is a 2012 Lamborghini Aventador
it’s supposed to be the king of the hill
the California model has 691 horsepower
it’s a seven-speed paddle shifted single
clutch transmission
its all-wheel-drive and it looks like a
giant piece a Tupperware
we got 24 hours to do whatever we want
with it
but we didn’t really want to be seen it
so we also brought this car with
this rat rod at the 1930 Model a
two-door sedan
and it was bought as sort of a hacked up
rat rod
and Hot Rod Magazine in conjunction with
mackie’s hot rod shop
reworked it for Sailor Jerry rum it’s a
marketing piece it’s designed basically
to just be looked at which is kind of a
good thing is it a little hard to drive
with how
heavily chopped and channel that is it’s
powered by a small block Chevy and has a
turbo 350 automatic transmission
so we’re gonna hit the road here in
Southern California see what kinda
damage we can do
which one you gonna drive I know you’re
the boss so
for you to pick you pick I’m taking the
rat rod how I was surprise
I alright that was such surprise my
glasses are in
yeah I’m not sure which one of these is
worse that I haven’t heard
not sure how to even drive this thing
okay
this car actually has like bathroom
door locks
that’s what sex sounds like
you’re right there
do you see my steering wheel anywhere don’t worry
that a buff out
I found it don’t hurt yourself boy

okay are you ready to go on that gold chain mobile
I know this cool place down by the beach
we’re gonna go breakfast see what people
think it is two cars together okay

stuck he got stuck
its stuck I a thought thats awesome
thats why I chose the lamborghini
he can’t go backwards either
as big a douche bags I feel for
driving a rented Lamborghini
the fact that he’s stuck in the death
trap on a driveway that’s too steep
that somehow worse to me you man it’s
hard to get out of this thing
gonna be a long
day for him
hey fennigan I think I’ll justlisten to the radio I
can’t even get out
I need a hand I literally can’t get out
what a piece a crap
not happening I think rocking it was
helping
yeah ready

not happening the rocker stuck in
the ground
yeah I know you beached it hot rods are
perfectly practical vehicles for daily
use
dude it bashed the door
you need to get out too
we need the weight off it okay let’s
see if we can shove it backwards
girl of
okay one two
3 okay yeah
jump in it back up hug this wall and
then come across this
okay hard yeah there you go
by doing this thing runs
start it yeah don’t stop just go
are you sure that’s not going to just
rip the corner panels off it
this is the only driveway but does that
mean you want to rip the corner panels
corner panels off
do this cut the wheel this way back up
more and make more of an angle
go for it

Sailor Jerry I’ll probably never loan us their car again
whoops you know when I leave the doors
not gonna fly open
love the Lambo
good thing that it was this car not the Lamborghini
I’m so glad that was you and not me
the rat rod as a whole lot of fun
in theory until somebody forces you
to actually drive it the car
so heavily chopped that there’s barely
any windshield in it
and it’s so heavily channel that there’s
not a lot of headroom and not a lot of
space between the steering wheel
and the floor so to drive this thing I had lean way back put my foot
up on the dash and sort of drive
full on monkey style
is actually pretty miserable the most
excitement I’m having right now is
hitting the button to raise and lower
the front and for railroad tracks
potholes in driveways
so pretty much I’m relegated to just
posing right now saying hey a girl
how you doing meanwhile Freiburger is in
the talk like a pirate car
yeah baby with no air conditioning
no radio lease it’s quite
no safety impossible to see out this thing
no shame oh yeah
this is hot roding

yeah I could drive this every day you’re
right on that
I could be fantastic if there wasn’t no
other cars on the road nobody’s really
looking at me
this car like I’m invisible
they’re all checking out the pirate car in front of me
model A is popular right now
I think as people are worried about
running into it and needing a tetanus shot
afterwards
oh yes it is better to look good and
feel good
and I look good
turn signal lever is kind of in a weird
spot here because of the paddle shifters
notice the hand signal yeah there’s no turn signal
i know if i remember what those are
Corvette guy digs me
the old broads like Sailor Jerry check it
out
see old
people dig it
no one gives a shit about the lamborghini

David is driving so slow because he
drove any faster
kill himself there is no speedometer the
brakes
only sorta work you can’t see anything
yeah just get used to this it’s going to
be like whole
trip
out of gas
David just ran outta gas
are you sure it just didn’t load up
0 fuel pressure
that’s out of gas so I need to go get gas
in a Lamborghini
yeah I go throw a five gallon jug in
there nobody will know yeah nobody will care
fight spill any on the
leather not bothering me right now
alright what good is a six thousand
dollar rental but you can’t go get gas in
it’s a good point be somebody I’ll be
back
i win the chick attention thing so far
out dude told you it’s a senior citizen
blue hairs back there that we’re
literally ready to rip they’re jogging
suits of for you
now where do you find gas in Hermosa Beach

what you didn’t want to spill it on the lambo
California gas can
get stuck in the driveway run outta gas
I see how this day is going
dude the restaurants is right around the
corner and it’s like right on the beach
chicks playing volleyball in the whole
deal we’re gonna prove once again the
chicks dig the rat rod
not the Lambo beautiful downtown Hermosa
Beach California
where people have no idea what they’re
looking at with this
car a big part of what we’re doing here
is really figuring out which one of
these cars is a better attention hore
and we went down to the beach first
thing and I gotta say
chicks check out the rat rod and dudes
check out the Lamborghini
inverted of what you would think so so
far
I completely win the chick contest I’m
serious
let me tell you something the only people that checked
me
in that car are dudes I stopped open the door
next thing I know a little point and shoot camera
came in the window
I was like what the and it was some guy I
got a picture
the aventador logo for my roommate I
couldn’t get out of the car
that car is a death trap I have to lay
down in its just to be able to steer
I can hear you’re saying because there’s chicks playing volleyball
wow this is the right place to come
I figure from here were almost
obligated to cruise pch a little bit and
then mulholland
right we need to get out the city the Lambo is useless
yeah the rat rod is fairly useless in traffic I didn’t get out of third gear
it sucked so from here out in the city
mulholland
then after we can go out to the desert go really fast and not go to jail
we have 24 hours to kill
who’s driving what I’m driving the rat rod
cruise the beach we’re gonna go to mulholland so
I’m not gonna argue with your ready
are gonna suck in that thing
not for me I’ve never had the countach
poster when I was a kid I not a
Lamborghini fanboy
I’d just don’t care it’s not automatic
things are hard to get into as the hot
rod
all these guys were worshiping that car
on the motor Trend YouTube channel
everything the week I’m gonna give it to
you straight the Lamborghini
really that cool if you paid four
hundred thousand dollars for a car
wouldn’t want electric seat adjuster

the rat rod is a total freak show
difficult to drive
but badass none the less
the thing is a naturally aspirated V12
6.5 liters
691 horsepower and i truly appreciate
that 8500 rpm redline
you hear that pumping
and thing does not drive that much
differently then the hot rod
I wonder if it’ll downshift
yes it will okay it’s peppy
I feel like Carlos Lago right now
poor Finnegan in front of me in the hot
rod not good
so I was driving the Sailor Jerry car
and
our goal is to get both cars at the mulholland drive and drive around the curves
we get stuck in typical LA traffic about
five miles into
literally crawling i watch the temp
gauge just go 220
230 240 a it’s getting
hot
you wanna pull over
not my car
I never even look at the gage
I’m going to film this there’s cops everywhere
yeah it’s our maiden voyage in traffic
so
apparently found out the limit on the
cooling system it’s alright if we sit
here for a few minutes let it cool off and get it out of the way
okay I know we shouldn’t be
I hate to hurt the motor
we rented it
strange
and I think I’m getting better so I
guess drive
leaking coolant everywhere it’s not going to cool off with the engine on

I’ll see if it’ll start
so my first experience driving the rat
rod
was it overheating in LA traffic five
miles after I get behind the wheel
this thing is boiling over I got to
get off the road before I can even get off the
highway
it goes 260 on the gauge and geysers
comes out
and we really shot straight up in the
air over the cabinet staying
it’s got a cam is top on it that wasn’t
on there and I was literally leaning
over thinking
I’m getting burned right here it’s going
through the roof it will use
so on road kill were on a loose schedule
yeah I remember that thing we said we
are gonna do about going to mulholland and hauling butt around curves
that’s not happening cuz this thing
overheated california has this bitch in
program with guys and truck to just
drive around to help stranded motorists
and so that
guy pulled over game is so much water
cooled off and we hit the road again
maybe half an hour later
and after that is fine as long as I cars
moving your good to go
you get stuck in traffic your getting
scaled probably overheating blew our
plans to go blast around Mulholland and
the thing we’ve got to do now
give get out to the desert because what
we’re really doing with these two cars
is shooting really important a cover
for a all new issue Hot Rod magazine
and we’ve got to meet the photographer
out there
and with any luck we’ll get there early
enough we can beat the hell out these things
on the open road
hop in
see the beauty this is it’s not my
Lamborghini so we can do it
it doesn’t sound good to you there you
go all seven grand
when we stopped out with the middle of the desert we meet this young couple
and once again the guy love the Lambo the
chick really liked
the hot rod what do you think of the model A
almost every woman we ran into
wants to go for a ride and model A what
you think like
I want to keep it
yes for what the cars
and ready
soI pick pick what let me guess
the one that doesn’t doesn’t hurt your ass bingo
alright
bout to go drag racing in a car that you
really can see more than
10 feet in front of I wanna my brightest
moves
but aleast I’ll look cool

lets go drag race

how do you stall a automatic Lamborghini
the Lamborghini has what they call
thrust mode
launch control drag race to launch
control and I tried to activate it but
seems if you hold the thing up on the
rev limiter long enough while your trying to
launch
that it eventually backed down or I
lifted the gauge
automatic clutch I don’t know I beat Freiberger
driving the rat rod the first race
second he kick the crap outta me once
you figure out how to drive the car
the thrust modes actually kind of cool
you turn off the stability control and
it lets you stand on the break floor the
gas becomes up to
like 5400 rpm and then you just swap
feet and mat it
and hooks up and launches it doesn’t launch
that hard to me its not four hundred
thousand dollars fast at all
if that the best at work ever this is
probably the best one
I so after we were done messin around
out in the desert we had to wait till
dusk
and we went straight into our Hot Rod
Magazine cover shoot we found an
abandoned desert road in the first thing
we did
is we got a couple very slow car to car
shots to get from action for the
magazine
and then our photographer west allison set them both up on the road
and we lit them to shoot the cover
at the September issue of Hot Rod
magazine which is going to be
this all-new complete makeover on the
magazine
so this was a really important shoot
it doesn’t seem like it but it’s really hard work falling around with really
great cars and so
done with photo shoot time to go eat
some food here’s
we can’t drink in the Lambo
we signed a contract if can’t afford to fail that contract
I will say this I’m not a Lambo guy but I’m
definitely a v12 guy
now about 8500 rpm
nothing sounds like that badass it’s
like playing a video game here in
seventh gear in
tap tap tap year and second unit doesn’t
care doesn’t whine about
thats totally the best part the cars the
seventy mile an hour quadruple downshift
in
it’s really it’s only redeeming
value because
chick seemed like this better most
people say that they would take this
home instead of that
you have to admitt it yeah those people never gone
for a ride it doesn’t stop
it doesn’t go this is literally a
compound fracture
waiting to happen this is a death trap
just legs broken
dangling off I so
what now I’m you go somewhere we’ve got
nearly eight hours left paying five
dollars a minute
lamborghini and were hanging out in this pile and
I was 25 bucks for it there
I’m getting out of here
this was ostensibly a comparison to
these two cars although we really know
that it was just a freak show for our
fun and enjoyment
but I do have some thoughts to take away
from it
the rat rod think it’s so popular right
now and I know why it’s because the cars
are cartoony and fun and
evil and they just look like we wish hot
rods really were the truth is
it’s not fast it’s not a performance car
it’s not
that fun to drive around unless all you
want to do is get looked at
it’s a miracle I’m sitting here today
the rat rod
there’s no good way to describe this
thing where you’re going to want to
drive this car
it’s an attention grabber it’s a lot of
fun it’s a cartoon
great marketing tool for Sailor Jerry
but not something that you want to drive
every single day
even though you can drive it whatever
car show you want the Lamborghini
I I just don’t see it Finnegan thinks
the car is brutally fast if you’re real
hot rodder you’re probably not gonna say
you like a Lamborghini
but if you ever got the chance to be toss
the keys to one
you can’t buy it seems it does have some
value on the freeway
when your cruise along into sixth or
seventh and you downshift like
second stand on it the v12 screams like
a banshee and that is pretty cool to me
that’s the best feature the car
is being able to shriek at the 8500 rpm
but you know what it’s just as hard to
get you now to the Lamborghini is it is
the rat rod the scissor doors are just
annoying and you need like know how to
run a
Hewlett Packard computer to function the
center console
way too many switches and gadget on it
it’s not that comfortable
it’s not that fast the thing I will give
it
is that we had no real track time at all
no performance testing on a road course
I think the Lamborghini with really kick
ass
the all-wheel-drive unbeatable but
that’s just not our skills that we were
looking at this more from the
regular muscle car died their
one-dimensional car as you drive a ride
cuz you want to be seen
you by the Lambo cuz you want to be seen
you’re never gonna push it
the way you should push it or the way we
pushed it now
so pretty much their posers cars you
know
you can afford either one you buy for
whatever reason you’re
