The Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4 is fast. But it’s not record-breakingly fast when it comes to something like a half-mile speed run.
But if you ask US-based tuner Underground Racing nicely, and give them a big chunk of cash, they’ll attach two turbos to your Huracan and turn it into an AWD ballistic missile.
Its previously-atmo V10 engine becomes a forced-induction powerhouse, which Underground Racing (or UGR) says can be set up to produce from 597kW at the wheels up to 1640kW on race fuel.
A base kit costs USD$49,000 (AUD$66,500), but a top-spec record-shattering set up has no list price. It would be well-north of USD$100,000 judging by the rest of the price list.
So what do you do with a 1600kW+ Raging Bull? You try to break some records, of course.
In September last year, the team hit 233mph (375km/h) on the standing half mile, resetting a previous record held by the same car.
That record was later broken by a heavily modified Nissan R35 GT-R, but Underground racing went back for more just a week ago.
Chasing a formidable 257mph (413.5km/h), the team and the Huracán manage to get close in a first run, then match the speed exactly later on.
After that, the UGR Huracán becomes the new world record holder for the fastest car to cover a standing quarter mile, with a top speed of just over 259mph – 416.7km/h to us.
