A heavily modified Lamborghini Huracan has established a new half-mile world record after doing an impressive 238.6 mph (383.9 km/h).
This Verde Mantis Huracan is no longer naturally aspirated as the tuners at Underground Racing have slapped on a pair of turbochargers boosting output to a whopping 2,000+ bhp (1,491 KW). They also removed the supercar’s standard dual-clutch seven-speed gearbox to make room for a specially adapted sequential transmission. According to Huracan Talk, the performance achieved by the vehicle could actually increase once a dual-clutch ‘box will be able to handle all that power generated by the V10 5.2-liter twin-turbo motor.
Underground Racing is known for its twin-turbo kits as it applied a similar treatment on the Huracan’s predecessor, the Gallardo. That one also hit the 2,000 bhp mark and established the previous half-mile world record at 233.8 mph (376.2 km/h) back in January during a WannaGoFast Florida event.
This heavily tuned Huracan is certainly the most powerful in the world and it packs three times the punch of the standard version. Speaking of which, a more hardcore rear-wheel drive Huracan is said to debut this week at the Los Angeles Auto Show and it will likely have more power combined with less weight for better performance.
