Blink and you’ll miss this tricked out twin-turbo Lamborghini Huracan set the new half-mile world record at an airstrip in North Carolina (come on and raise up!…Sorry, I bet Petey Pablo is stuck in your head now). There’s no such thing as an ordinary Lamborghini Huracan. They rank amongst the fastest production vehicles ever made. Any aftermarket enhancements to these cars catapult them into the next stratosphere, and that’s exactly what we’re looking at here.
Kyle Cherommcha at TheDrive.com reports that this particular Lamborghini Huracan is a Twin-Turbo 5.2-liter V-10 which has been given automotive viagra by the Underground Racing team. Last month, Underground Racing unveiled a 2,200-horsepower Huracan and this car bears striking similarities to that one, only it appears to be considerably faster.
The previous half-mile speed world records have been broken repeatedly over the past year. Last Summer, Underground Racing set the half-mile record at 240 MPH with a Lamborghini Gallardo. It was then broken at 247 MPH later in the Summer, and in November a Nissan GT-R broke the record at 248 MPH.
This record-setting feat from Underground Racing is hard to wrap my mind around. According to The Drive, the speed at which the Lamborghini Huracan above was traveling while setting the 250.27 MPH half-mile world record is the equivalent to that car traveling the entire length of a football field EACH SECOND….Like I said, it’s hard for me to wrap my mind around a car traveling at speeds like that.
