Gallardo Superleggera on fire

I am sure most of us reading this love the Lamborghini Gallardo in a way or two. The owner of this particular Gallardo probably thought that loving it means turning it into one of the fastest production tuned car on earth. That means having more than 2,000bhp with the help of two huge turbochargers. Yes, that is no typing error.

Unfortunately for him, his Underground Racing tuned Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera's V10 burst into flames instantly after crossing the finish line. Luckily for him, he safely got the car down to a standstill and escaped before anything bad happened. As seen in the video, the car looks pretty much fine other than the need to have a new engine block and some repainting.

At least he broke the event’s top speed record by hitting 402km/h. That said, he is still pretty far away from the world record. That title actually belongs to the BADD Ford GT, which powered down the one-mile strip in America and setting a new world record at 453km/h with the help of 1,700bhp.
