Hmmm, doesn't this all feel a bit... familiar? Some Top Gear chins developed inexplicable itches upon seeing this video of a Lamborghini Aventador drag racing a F16 fighter jet.

Because, well, we've kind of done something similar. Something Eurofighter-shaped. Something Richard-Hammond-in-a-Bugatti-shaped.

A Danish chap decided - correctly - that bedroom-dwelling Internet types deserved something more extravagant than the hotly anticipated follow-up to Man Makes Engine Noises. Said Dane wanted to see if Lamborghini's Aventador, that 700bhp weapon of noise and angles and fury, could take an F16 fighter plane.

Clearly, he felt the need, the need, for speed.

While your information-addled cerebrums can probably work out the result of such a race, it's definitely worth a watch. If you want something with a bit more power, have a click of this link here. It contains a Bugatti Veyron, a really quite large fighting plane, and a Richard Hammond.
