Back in 2007, Lamborghini released a special edition Gallardo at the Paris Motor Show. Limited to only 185 units, these Gallardos were given the name “Nera” and were each powered by the same V10 engine of the standard Gallardo with an output of 550 horsepower.
Since then, these cars have been dispersed all over the world to their owners and just like their name, they seem to have vanished into the night without even a trace of their shadows.
It took a little over three years, but we’ve just gotten word that one of these black knights from Lamborghini has resurfaced in the hands of no less than Underground Racing. Over the past few months, the US-based aftermarket tuning company worked tirelessly on upping the proverbial ante on the Gallardo Nera’s powertrain, determined to give the dark supercar a 1,000 horsepower belly, capable of thwarting any and all enemies that gets in its way.
Details are still limited at this point, but Underground Racing saw fit to release a little teaser video of the Gallardo Nera on a drag strip, including a small snippet of its incredible acceleration off the starting block.
Given that it’s a teaser video, Underground Racing preferred to keep the video short to make us beg and plead for more. It seems to be working, though, because we can’t wait to find out more on what these boys did to one of the most exclusive and elusive Gallardos on the planet.
