259.96MPH 1/2 MILE WORLD RECORD! UNDERGROUND RACING DRAG 965 2500WHP LAMBORGHINI HURACAN


Let’s take a look at some numbers: 2,500 is the approximate number of rear-wheel horsepowers produced by this mental twin-turbocharged DRAG 965 Lamborghini Huracan built and campaigned by Underground Racing.

13 – the approximate number of seconds it took the DRAG 965 Huracan to cover the standing half mile and last weekend’s Shift Sector event in Indiana. Which is insanely fast!

259.96MPH (418.37km/h) – the exact speed the Huracan reached as it screamed through the timers at the top end of the half-mile course, yet another world record for Underground Racing and DRAG 965.

0 – Probably the most important figure, the number of people in attendance whose jaw didn’t hit the ground when the speed popped up at the end of the Huracan’s world record pass.

There really isn’t much to say about this car that hasn’t been said countless times. Underground Racing is damn good at what they do and they just keep finding ways to make their customer’s cars faster and faster. While it’s pretty common to see cars at this power level struggling to maintain traction and keep the car in the centre of the lane, it seems that Underground Racing has found the magic balance between power and management, allowing the driver to keep his foot planted and the tires to maintain traction. As you can see, that makes for some brutal, but drama-free, acceleration.

Look for Underground Racing to hit that number soon again, possibly as soon as the next half mile event they attend. With summer drawing to an end in Indiana, cooler weather should make for even more power, so it seems all but inevitable that number will be increased any day now, and our money is on Underground Racing to be the crew to make it happen!
