We’ve featured some pretty powerful tuned cars recently, but this Lamborghini Gallardo is the most powerful street car we’ve seen. With 2005bhp it’s a car that easily destroys any competitor on the drag strip.
And don’t think it’s going up against tuned Hondas, either; the cars willing to take on the mighty Gallardo include 1000bhp+ Nissan GTRs and that Veyron beating Juke we showed you last week.
The mental power comes courtesy of Underground Racing, who fit custom made twin-turbos, a custom air intake and cooling system and an exhaust made from ‘aircraft quality metal’. The short block is race spec and balanced, with a full blueprint of the engine. Racing fuel is pumped into the engine by high flow fuel pumps – custom made, of course.
What makes this Lambo all the more crazy is the fact that it can’t go in a straight line properly. With so many horses coursing through each of the four wheels, we see the driver drift and slide his way up the straight rather awkwardly…
The Gallardo’s power does amount to some rather respectable times, with the quarter mile dispatched in 10.293 seconds, while the the mile marker is hit in 23.479 seconds at 230mph. If that wasn’t enough to impress you, it also sounds the nuts.
