Drag racing is a popular sport around the world. Especially, for cars, it's a top-speed heaven. Now a Lamborghini has recorded an incredible top speed in less than a kilometre.
A Lamborghini Huracan has reached a top speed of 357km/h in a half-mile drag event in North Carolina. Underground Racing has tuned the supercar.
Under the bonnet of the Sant'Agata Bolognese missile is a V10 engine delivering 1,800bhp to the wheels. Previously a Lamborghini set a top speed record of 402km/h in a half-mile drag strip.
But there was a difference of 500bhp between the two cars. The 400km/h was achieved using a sequential gearbox. But this Huracan is equipped with a dual-clutch transmission. The clutch of the supercar has been upgraded, apart from that the rest of the car is in its stock form.
The dragstrip races are famous around the globe. The tuners are pushing the limits to reach incredible speeds in such a short distance. There is no surprise if the 400km/h record is also broken.
