We all know the setup - two cars meet at night, look for an empty road and then they get it on. But when you’re street racing a Nissan GT-R and a Lamborghini Gallardo that have been tuned to almost three times the factory output, things tend to become a bit more extreme.
Before we move on to discussing the race(s), we have to meet the cars. We’ll start with the GT-R, which features Jotech’s Stage Six kit. This means the engine features a stroker kit, going from 3.8 to 4.3 liters, while the twin-turbos were swapped for a pair of Alpha Performance 12 units that deliver about 30 lbs of boost. This means that, for this race, the GT-R delivers around 1,270 hp.

As for the Gallardo, we are talking about a Stage Three twin-turbo setup coming from Dallas Performance. The resulting output sits at around 1,450 hp. And since both are tuner cars, the hp values mentioned are offered at the wheels.

The battles will keep you on your toes

Once the two were fed race gas and the owners discussed the details, it was time to hit the road for the rolling races. The first race was the one that demonstrated the hp difference between the cars, but the Lambo left while the guy in the GT-R was still counting. Sure, the Raging Bull would’ve won anyway, but the race would’ve been much tighter.

After securing the crown, the Lamborghini driver was okay with going down to an 1,250 hp ECU map. And this is where the fun began. The two battle it out on more than one occasion, with the GT-R taking the cake each time.

As for the kind of speeds the pumped-up supercars were doing, we can tell you they went north of 160 mph (260 km/h).

The big boys

Sure, cars like these can easily be labeled under “big boys” themselves, but what about the biggest of their kind? Well, the most capable GT-R in the world is the Alpha Omega, while the Lamborghini Gallardo has already been replaced by the Huracan on the twin-turbo market.

In fact, the two raced at the debut of the twin-turbo Huracan, which is built by Underground Racing. With both machines packing over 2,000 whp, you can check out the result here.
