2,000 HP Gallardo Is Not Your Average Twin-Turbo Lamborghini, Goes Drag Racing

With the Lamborghini Gallardo having been off the market for two years now, and the aftermarket side of the industry having done its V10 homework over the years, we have now reached the point where twin-turbo Gallardo are getting close to the normal side of the supercar scene.

Nevertheless, while your... average TT Lambo street car delivers somewhere around 1,250 ponies, the big boys who like to take their boosted Italian exotics to races won't get their peace without 2,000 hp or more, hence the title above.

Of course, in the world of drag racing, nobody can trust the dyno hp story you tell, so you'll have to prove yourself with MPH numbers. The piece of footage below brings us the freshest example of this, showing a 2,000 hp Gallardo that goes drag racing to demonstrate its potential.

This Sant'Agata Bolognese beast has been gifted with Underground Racing's X Package and, as the name suggests it, this delivers a savage velocity experience.

The Lamborghini, a pre-revamp Gallardo Superleggera, took part in Texas' TX2K16 event, where it engaged in multiple rolling star shenanigans. And since we mentioned numbers above, we'll go ahead and tell you this Lambo managed to climb well past the 200 mph (make that 320 km/h if you're a fan of the metric system) in its half-mile adventures.

And while this monstrous Gallardo makes it look easy in the video below, strapping a pair of turbos to your Lambo does also require a boost in driving skill. Alas, there are owners in this world who haven't found out about the mandatory supporting driver mod, which is how we end up with TT Gallardo crashes that bring a bad reputation to the breed, such as the one we've recently shown you.

P.S.: Those of you curious about how the Huracan is continuing the twin-turbo Lamborghini story should check out this story.
