1,800 HP Lamborghini Gallardo Stalls While Street Racing Corvette Z06

The kind of drivers who like to race on the streets won't be bothered by safety arguments, but many of them certainly have a sensitive ego. One that's pretty likely to be damaged by stalling.

We like to see stalling as one of the factors that might determine certain stoplight racers to at least engage in such activities less often. Yes, we know we sound like dreamers when saying that, but we hope the risk of humiliation leads to less illegal races.

Let's take the guy driving the Gallardo in the video below, for instance. The man finds himself next to a Corvette Z06 at the lights. Now that GM has supercharged the Z06, the badass 'Vette has become one of the favorite American machines that can take on Euro-flavored supercars.

As a result, the two drivers decided to go for it. However, with the Lambo driver feeling the pressure (given the Z06's price, it can be called an underdog), the guy gets the launch pedal dance wrong, stalling the engine.

The video description explains this is a 1,800 HP Gallardo. Nevertheless, the stalling means we don't get to properly listen to the soundtrack of the engine.

As a result, not only are we unable to confirm this is a 1,800 HP Gallardo but we can't even be sure this is one of those Lamborghinis that have gone down the twin-turbo route.

These days, Raging Bulls that take the output game to 2,000 hp are not that uncommon. Nevertheless, these cars are rarely driven on the streets. While there are certain exceptions, owners usually choose to battle it out at specialized events.

These are machines that use sequential transmissions, replacing their original manual or e-gear automated manual setups, while the costs associated with running them sometimes acts as a filter, leaving many of the irrational drivers outside their cabins.

On most occasions, making the money required to own such a car requires a certain level of discipline, with the same thing being true for driving the machine.

And while we're not sure about the V10 Lamborghini's output, this is certainly not one of the discipline cases mentioned above.
