Underground Racing does it ONCE AGAIN! Gidi Chamdi has done it again in his monstrous 2013 Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera Twin Turbo prepared by the folks at Underground Racing.
This is a new world record for a street-legal car, as this is also the first time anyone has cracked 240 mph (386 km/h) in this particular event.
His winning speed was a magical 240.64 mph in the 2300hp+ Lamborghini which broke the previous record set by KC Howeth at 238.6 mph back in Texas last year in an Underground Racing-prepped Lamborghini Huracán . Incidentally, Howeth had broken a previous record set by Gidi at 234.86 mph couple of months earlier. Both cars feature Underground Racing’s X package which uses twin-turbocharging to extract the massive power numbers.
2300 horsepower is roughly double what a Bugatti Veyron has, just to put things in perspective.
And you can compare how crazy this 240 mph is, a 1,341-hp Koenigsegg One:1 needed 1.4 miles to reach the same speed. There’s so much power being put down in Chamdi’s car that you see him suffering wheelspin even after he’s pulled away from the line.
If you ever wanted to know what 2,300 horsepower packed into a modern car can do, then take a gander at this video below filmed at the AirStrip Attack at Pike’s Peak in Colorado.
