Turns out the Huracan performante isn't the only Lambo that likes to snag records.
In the middle of obsessing whether or not the Lamborghini Huracan Performante was the fastest production vehicle around the Nurburgring, some have lost sight of how much of a beast the stock car is. Thankfully Drag Times hasn’t forgotten because true to its name, the YouTube channel decides to hit the strip in South Florida with a Lamborghini Huracan LP610-4 in attempts to get the best possible quarter mile time. However there’s one big caveat.
Unlike many other Lambos that make world record runs, the kind that slot near the top acceleration times for all production cars and not just Lamborghinis, this bull is bone stock. No ECU tune, no custom tires, and obviously no engine add ons or anything that makes the car more powerful than it is when it leaves the factory.
To its credit, the Huracan has launch control like any other Lamborghini, but aside from that the only helpers are the fact that it has all-wheel drive and a 5.2-liter V10 engine cranking out 602 horsepower. Luckily conditions were almost optimal for the 10.39 second time predicted by Brooks Weisblat, the one and only Drag Times guy. Even with little time to prep for the run, the result was a new record quarter mile run of 10.44 seconds, not a record officiated by Guinness but proven through drag strip receipts. Chalk it up as another win for Lamborghini, which has been busy proving that its medley of Italian and German engineering is working out just fine.
