Watch This 2,000-HP Gallardo Become the World’s Fastest Lamborghini…Again
North Carolina shop Underground Racing is
famous infamous for building some of the world’s fastest vehicles. From Lamborghinis to GT-Rs, and anything in between. For them, the formula is simple: twin turbocharge all the things. Their latest creation is actually an old friend.
The Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera LP570-4 you see here isn’t new to the world record books. It's owned by Gidi Chamdi, and it regularly surpasses the 220-mph mark. This Gallardo has been dubbed “World’s Fastest Lamborghini” more times than you can count on one hand. This time, somehow, it's gone even faster. Watch:

Breaking any previous records set by…well…itself, the twin-turbo Lambo took to the Shift Sector Airstrip Attack event in Oregon last week where it hit 234.86 mph. That’s faster than any other Lamborghini on the freaking planet, and most certainly anything else that took to the Oregon airstrip that day.
There’s no specific horsepower figure given, but considering a 1,700-horsepower Porsche 911 was also in attendance, you can assume this Gallardo could be pushing somewhere in the neighborhood of 2,000 horsepower. Insane.
