Underground Racing Twin Turbo Lambo World Record at Shift Sector
The boys over at Underground Racing set a new World Record in a Twin Turbo Superleggera at their first Shift Sector roll race ½ mile event. For those not familiar with Shift Sector, it is a half mile race event based on an asphalt airstrip.
The Underground Racing X Versions ran very fast and made the top three speed runs of the event. The Lamborghini Supperleggera finally set the new World Record at 234.8 mph in the standing 1/2 mile. At this event the Nissan GTR record was also broken at a blistering fast 227 MPH. Check out the video and enjoy these mind bending exotic machines pushing insane horsepower levels, our props go out to Underground Racing for shooting this video!
During the 2007 Geneva Auto Show, Lamborghini debuted the Gallardo Superleggera. The name paid tribute to the construction style of the first Lamborghini production model, the 350GT, designed and built by Carrozzeria Touring and its emphasis on weight reduction. The Superleggera was lighter than the base Gallardo by 100 kg (220 lb) via the use of carbon fibre panels for the rear diffuser, undertray, the rearview-mirror housings, the interior door panels, the central tunnel, engine cover; titanium wheel nuts and carbon fibre sports seats. The engine power was upgraded by 10 PS (7 kW; 10 hp) thanks to an improved intake, exhaust and ECU for a total of 530 PS (390 kW; 523 hp). The 6-speed E-Gear transmission was standard on US spec models with the 6-speed manual transmission offered as a no cost option.
