Insane Tuned Lamborghini

Lamborghini Gallardo Twin Turbo by Underground Racing

So imagine you’re a millionaire. You’re looking for a high-end supercar, like the Veyron. You find that everything in that class is a bit slow though. So, of course, you commission someone to build something even better.

That’s exactly what’s happened here. Tuning company Underground Racing was commissioned by a customer named Jonah to build a twin-turbo Lamborghini Gallardo. The result? 1500hp at the wheels (Though it does require the use of VP C16 racing fuel). Compare that to the 1287hp the Shelby Supercars Ultimate Aero has at the crank, and you begin to realize just how fast this thing is. You may also bring up the Keating TKR as an argument, which has 1800hp at the crank. Now, there’s no official figure on the brake horsepower for this, but considering the drivetrain loss for AWD cars is about 25%, this should put out around 1875bhp, 75 more than the Keating. Admittedly, this is only an estimate, but there’s 75bhp of leeway before the Keating has the advantage, so I reckon this puts out more power.

The owner, Jonah, managed to clear the quarter mile in this in less than 10 seconds at a speed of over 160mph, and keep in mind that he isn’t a professional racing driver, hasn’t been to the drag strip in over a decade, and this was the first time he drove the car. Give a proper driver some time to practice in it, and I reckon this could clear the quarter mile in less than 9 seconds. Compare that to the Shelby Ultimate Aero Twin Turbo, which did the quarter mile in 9.90 seconds at 144mph with a proper driver in it, and you yet again see the sheer madness of this car.

Besides this insane engine, there have been some other changes. It’s got new wheels and new tires, the rear lights have been tinted, and a spoiler has been added. This may have come with the original car though, as it looks a bit like the Superleggera spoiler, so maybe the base car was a Superleggera. By the looks of the pictures, the car has also been lowered slightly. Details are a bit sparse, so I don’t know whether or not they modified the suspension, though I’d sure hope they did, as 1500whp with suspension intended for about 500bhp is insanity.

The engine is hooked up to a six-speed transmission of some sort. As far I can tell from the video below (Official video released by Underground Racing), the twin-turbo kit is now available for anyone who owns a Gallardo.

    all i got to say about this car is OMG!!!!
    this car is ripped man! i’ll bet it would beat any Camry in a race you know wat really put the finishing touches to this car is some metallic black and a silver trim, another thing that would pimp up this ride would be some hydrolics on a 24” of king kong rims and a pinewood interior with leather seating. but last but not least is the big boombox stereo in the trunk and a blue neon light under the car. so should i be a car designer or wat? ;P oh ya!

    Sounds a bit tasteless to be brutally frank. I doubt a boombox stereo would fit in the trunk too, it’s a supercar after all. 24″ rims probably wouldn’t even fit on those tires. As for the interior, chances are it’s already got a leather interior. If not leather, it’s alcantra, which I personally prefer.

    Plus, the whole point of it is how bloody fast it is. Adding all these tasteless mods would add quite a lot of weight, slowing it down significantly.
