Lamborghini Gallardo Smashes 1/2-Mile Record With 234.8 MPH Run

Tuning

This is one hell of a run.

A Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 tuned by Underground Racing has just smashed the half-mile record clocking a sensational time of 234.8 mph. Gidi Chamdi was behind the wheel of the monster Lambo, which comes packing a mean twin-turbo setup and output north of 2,000 hp. The record run went down at the Shift Sector roll race ½ mile held at McMinnville Municipal Airport in Oregon, and amazingly this was UR’s first time at the event.

Less surprising to hear is that the tuning firm has held the record since October 2009, and the past few records were broken by a Gallardo. Check out its latest creation doing them proud here.
