While the video of exotic supercars tearing up a runway at near-lightspeed has been seen before, we have to admit watching this Lamborghini rip up the 1/2 mile from a standing start is pretty badass in itself. The part that really grabbed our attention was when the Lamborghini and its driver left the track at 320 km/h (200 mph) and promptly spun out, crashing into a nearby pond.
A factory stock Lamborghini can be a handful for many drivers. Just ask the drivers of these previous incidents involving Lamborghinis and their owners. So what's the most prudent thing to do if you wanna go faster? Take your Lamborghini Gallardo to hop-up shops like Heffner Performance to prove your mettle and bravery (Gallardo roughly translates to bravery) and transform your (at least) 520 hp Gallardo to a mind-numbing 2,000 horsepower straight line monster.
The owner of this particular Heffner Lamborghini built his car in order to compete in the annual wannaGOFAST event in Florida this past weekend. For those of you not familiar with wannaGOFAST events, check out their site here and come back. The TL;DR version - they set up awesome 1/2 mile races on runways for people with cars that cost more than more than most homes. It's rad.
Luckily there were no injuries to the driver or any bystanders. Damage to the custom Lamborghini Gallardo is unknown, but we'll update when we get more information. Check out the video below.
