Take a good look at the Lamborghini Huracan in the video below. Despite its stock appearance, this machine packs almost four times the power level Sant’Agata Bolognese intended it to have. And it’s not afraid to use it for setting world records.
Dubbed UR2, this bull now rages to the tune of U.S. aftermarket specialist Underground Racing, serving as the company’s development platform for Lamborghini’s latest V10 supercar.

The UR2 managed to set a new standing half-mile world record (for street-legal cars) over the past weekend, managing to fly through the speed traps at a jaw-dropping 238.6 mph (384.14 km/h).

This was possible after the 5.2-liter V10 at the center of the car received Underground Racing’s twin-turbo kit, as well as a ton of supporting mods. Things were dialed up to 2,300 hp, while the standard dual-clutch transmission was swapped with a sequential unit.

Those of you who prefer simpler engine mods should know Underground Racing’s bolt-on Huracan also passed 200 mph over the weekend, albeit not by much.

This is just the beginning

We’ll remind you the UR 2 made its racing debut back in June, with the Huracan being overshadowed by AMS Performance’s Alpha Omega Nissan GT-R, a vehicle that’s well into its development.

We’ll definitely see much more of this Lamborghini in the future, now that the tuner has kicked off the record-crushing hostilities. And just like the Alpha Omega received a new billet aluminum block for this year, we expect the Huracan to receive massive modifications for 2016.

We have to explain that the previous standing half-mile record had been set back in August by a just as twin-turbo Gallardo Superlegerra, which managed to go all the way to 234.86 mph (378.12 km/h).

Just in case you’ve checked your account balance while reading this, we have to tell you 2,000+ hp Lamborghini or Nissan customer cars are no longer a rarity these days.
