First Glimpse – 2018 Lamborghini Huracan Superleggera

July 13th, 2016

Hot off the presses! Here is a first look at the latest and greatest new Italian supercar – projected for introduction later this year in Paris or Geneva (Auto Shows). This is the 2018 Lamborghini Huracan Superleggera taming the historic track at Nurburgring. When the experts really want to know what a car is capable of, they turn to this grueling 3.199-mile track that legendary F1 racer Jackie Stewart nicknamed “the Green Hell”. The 2018 Huracan Superleggera (meaning “super light”) seems up to the task with typical Lamborghini handling and performance. The Superleggera version is approximately 220-pounds lighter than the Read More

240 MPH Half-Mile World Record

June 20th, 2016

The world record for top speed in the standing half-mile has fallen. The driver who shattered the 238.6 mph mark (set last year by K.C. Howeth in Texas) Saturday is no rookie. Gidi Chamdi is the man-of-the-hour. He once held the record at 234 mph and I’ll give you odds that he won’t let his new “high-water” mark stand very long. Gidi’s car is a Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera. It has a built 5.2-liter V10 engine and an Underground Racing X twin turbo package. The setup is good for more than 2,300hp. Despite the massive power, this Lambo remains very streetable 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

TT Lambo Posts 6-Speed Half-Mile World Record

May 18th, 2016

There is an old and popular song that says “The Devil went down to Georgia – Looking for a soul to steal.” If he really did come down to the great state of Georgia, he would’ve been proud to drive this twin-turbocharged Underground Lamborghini Gallardo and steal a handful of records (personal and otherwise). This 2,000hp bad girl turned up at the WannaGoFast 1/2-Mile Shootout (in Clayton, Ga.) and took the track record, the event record, and set a brand new 6-speed world record for the 1/2-mile @ 221.08 mph. This is just another entry in a long list of Read More

Shocker – Honda Civic vs. Lamborghini Gallardo

May 16th, 2016

If someone told me that a Honda Civic beat a Lamborghini Gallardo on the street or strip, I’d think they were being less than honest. If I saw this unlikely sight on a local interstate, I’d believe that I needed to drink less or have my eyes checked. However, there just is no arguing with video. The Civic coupe weighs in at 2,100-pounds and is equipped with a sleeved K20 2.0-liter Honda VTEC engine with a 6262 Precision turbocharger. It’s making around 700hp. The hatchback has a similar setup, except it has an ERL block and a 66-millimeter turbocharger. The Read More

Roll Racing – TT Lamborghini Goes 213 MPH

May 2nd, 2016

This car bears the moniker ‘MULLET’ after the owner/driver’s hairstyle. This particular hairstyle is often described as ‘business in the front – party in the back’. Well, this Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera must save the party for the street because on the strip (during this TX2K event) it was all about business. There are multiple 200+ mph passes. As impressive as a stock Superleggera is, you’ll never squeeze 213 mph out of it in the half-mile. This car has been modified with an Underground Racing Twin Turbo Package. The package includes twin billet Precision 62-millimeter turbochargers with Tial wastegates and Read More

2016 Lamborghini Aventador SV LP750-4

April 27th, 2016

The Lamborghini brand has a rich reputation for sleek and powerful premium sports cars. This version may be the baddest of the heap. The name ‘Aventador’ is taken from a particularly vicious Spanish fighting bull and the ‘SV’ represents Super Veloce or ‘Super Fast’. The ‘LP750’ symbolizes the 741hp made by the 6.5-liter V12 engine and the ‘4’ indicates that this beast is all-wheel driven. This Italian masterpiece is capable of rocketing from 0 to 60 mph in only 2.8-seconds; making it a killer street racing machine. It has a top speed that exceeds 217 mph and costs around $500K.

Roll Racing Finals – TX2K16

March 21st, 2016

This is Day 2 of TX2K16 and the Roll Racing Finals featuring the Super Sport, Sport, and Unlimited Classes. There are tons of Lamborghinis and GT-Rs screaming through the half-mile with some reaching speeds of more than 200 mph. These are some of the most elite level roll racers that you will ever see. You don’t want to miss this one. After the roll racing is finished, some big names roll onto the track for the drag racing test and tune session. Gidi’s Alpha G and T1’s GT-R showed up to do battle against some high-flying Supras, killer Corvettes, and 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
