New Half-Mile World Record

September 23rd, 2016

Underground Racing (UR) has scored again with their earth shaking X-Package. UR has taken the lead in developing turbocharged performance machines and, if this past weekend’s festivities are any indication, they aren’t planning on relinquishing their position any time soon. The backdrop is a closed airstrip during the ShiftS3ctor event in McMinnville, Oregon. All of the top players are on hand for this event, as you might expect, and world records are being broken all weekend. At the end of the event, Richard Fowler owned the new World Record in the 1/2-mile at 247.25 mph – that’s 7 mph faster Read More

205 MPH 1.4 Mile Huracan

June 14th, 2016

I love these ride-along videos. This is one such video in which an exquisite Lamborghini Huracan takes on a Ferrari 488GTB and posts a top speed of 205 mph in the 1.4 mile Hypermax IV event. This clip comes to us from the historic Bruntingthorpe Proving Grounds in the United Kingdom and features one of the most iconic supercars of the modern era. The “affordable” Huracan sells for around $200K and is equipped with a (mid-mounted) high-revving 5.2-liter V10 engine. It is offered in all-wheel (602hp) and rear-wheel (571hp) drive configurations. It has a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission (no manual offered Read More

Battle of the Italians – Ferrari 488 GTB vs. Lamborghini Huracan

May 24th, 2016

This is the stuff that civil wars are fought over; which one is faster – the Lamborghini Huracan or the Ferrari 488GTB? Mama Mia! Let’s take a look and see. The Ferrari is making 661hp (at an amazing 8,000 RPM) using a 3.9-liter V8 engine. It can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 3-seconds, has an adaptive suspension system, and a price tag of nearly $250K. In the other lane; the (all-wheel drive) Lambo is churning out 602hp with a 5.2-liter V10 engine. It has a 7-speed dual-clutch automated transmission, the capacity to accelerate from 0 to 60 Read More

World Record Quarter-Mile Pass for OBP Lambo

February 26th, 2016

The OB Prestige Auto Racing Team showed up at the drag strip and showed out by setting a new 1/4-mile world record (8.97-seconds @ 165.47 mph) for a Lamborghini Huracan. Just check out the time slip for yourself. This emerald green, all-wheel drive beauty rolls off the factory floor with some pretty impressive credentials but what Heffner Performance adds is nothing short of miraculous. They start by building the 5.2-liter V10 engine to the brink of being completely bullet poof, then add a twin turbo package and a MoTec engine controller. The 7-speed dual clutch automatic is then treated to Read More

Supercharged Lamborghini Huracan

November 19th, 2015

Momma always said, “Nobody likes a whiner” but Mom, there are times when a good whine can be quite pleasant. For instance, when this killer white Lamborghini Huracan rounds the bend and you hear a startling whine as he jams on the accelerator and plants the rubber to the pavement. That whine is from a Eaton TVS2300 roots type supercharger sitting atop a 5.2-liter V10 engine. The entire package is produced by VF Engineering from Anaheim, California. This Lambo is also equipped with a 6061 aluminum intake manifold with an internal bypass and high-flow dual throttle bodies with high-flow MAF Read More

2300HP TT Lambo Huracan Breaks Half-Mile Record 238 MPH

November 18th, 2015

Underground Racing is on the cutting edge in turbocharged high-performance technology and they proved it again at the WannaGOFAST Texas 1/2-mile event in Sulpher Springs, Texas. This awesome looking twin-turbocharged Lamborghini Huracan (driven by KC Howeth) posted a world record-setting speed of 238.6 mph; besting the old record by nearly 4 mph! The previous record holder was Gidi Chamdi and he was also piloting an Underground Racing prepared Lamborghini when he set it. Gidi’s car is a Superlegarra and we know that he’ll be back shortly to carry out his next move in this high-speed battle of one-ups-manship. The Lime Read More

Stolen Lambo vs Fatt Cat’s Challenger

November 3rd, 2015

When street racing, it pays to “Drive it like you stole it”, as the old saying goes. In this clip it is alleged that the driver of the 2015 Lamborghini Huracan may have actually stole it. He is an automobile transporter out on the town and looking for a thrill. If you only have one shot at seeing how you measure up in a street race, then you’ll want to head down south of the border (I didn’t know that there was a city in Mexico called Houston, hmmm) and look up a hustler named Fatt Cat. Chances are that Read More

700HP IMW Honda Civic Battles Supercars

September 15th, 2015

Check out this footage of the Innovative Motor Works Honda Civic going toe-to-toe with some exotic supercars. The business of the day is done as 65 mph roll racing. First, the “little import that could” lines up against a mighty 700hp Mustang Shelby GT500 and whips him handily. Next up is a turbocharged Toyota Supra, which is also narrowly dispatched. The Civic isn’t able to get a handle on the awesome sounding supercharged 775hp Corvette and gets beaten by a nose. Finally, an odd contest with a lame Huracan and a bad Bavarian wins easily. The Civic is outfitted with Read More

Drag Racing Huracan vs 918 Spyder

September 9th, 2015

These are two seriously elite supercars and they are lining up head-to-head on a closed airstrip for a one-mile race with a rolling start. Both cars begin rather timidly and proceed gently to 60 mph – then all hell breaks loose! The Lamborghini leaps out in front of the Porsche and scampers down the track at a break-neck pace. Around 140 mph the 918 overtakes the Lambo and leaves him in his wake. As you probably know, the Huracan is Lamborghini’s newest creation. It features all-wheel drive, a 602hp V10 engine, and a price tag of $240k, or about $4,000 Read More

Exotic Supercar Drag Racing

August 28th, 2015

In the words of a famous sugary soft drink character: “Oh, yeah!”  This clip brings us a plethora of exotic beauties from faraway places. This is an event crowded with an unbelievable field of high-end Italian and German sports machines, including Ferraris, Lamborghinis, and Porsches. You really don’t want to miss this action! In Superseries 1, the Lamborghini Aventador and Huracan square-off for some head-to-head dig action. Both cars are using launch control; therefore they leave the line at precisely the same instant. But wait – before the half-mile mark, the Huracan had pulled ahead by two car lengths. By Read More
