This heavily modified Lamborghini Huracan can finish a quarter-mile drag race in under 8 seconds.
Although not specifically meant for drag racing, the Lamborghini Huracan certainly has plenty of straight-line performance. The all-wheel-drive versions, anyway. The RWD-only models are not the most impressive racers Lamborghini offers, and really shouldn’t be stacked up against the likes of most true supercars.
But the Lamborghini Huracan Performante is a real beast, especially for having a 5.2-L naturally aspirated engine. Even without the benefit of turbochargers, the Huracan Performante gets 631 hp and 443 lb-ft of torque. Zero to sixty is done in 2.9 seconds on its way to a top speed of 218 mph.
Which is all well and good, but what if it could be better? What if it had twin-turbos?
Then you’d get something that Dallas Performance already has: a heavily modified twin-turbo Huracan with over 2,000 hp.
Courtesy of YouTube’s That Racing Channel (and by way of Carbuzz) comes this latest video featuring the aforementioned Dallas Performance Huracan that can make any Dodge Demon look like a complete chump.
It starts with a run from October 6th where we get a teaser for what this Huracan can do. It’s engine roars and then leaps off the line as though the all-wheel-drive system still can’t quite handle all the power being sent to its wheels. It reaches the finish line in just 8.784 seconds doing 178.53 mph.
On November 1st we get another preview, this time with a run in 8.3 seconds at 184 mph. But it’s the second November 1st run that sets the real record, finishing a quarter-mile in just 7.916 seconds at 186.74 mph.
There are very few cars that can break into the 7-seconds, and this car is one of them.
Exactly what Dallas Performance did is a bit of a mystery. We know from their website that the exotic car tuner offers Huracan performance upgrades, starting with a set of twin-turbos. The highest performance upgrade provides “racing-spec” engine and turbochargers, but to get to 2,000 horses would require more than just a few racing tweaks. Likely, multiple engine components and even the transmission would need to be upgraded to handle that much raw power.
They also don’t list pricing for the top-tier upgrade. But for a sub-8-second quarter-mile time, it’s gotta be worth it.
