22.35 seconds to 1 mile at over 260 mph is what the Gallardo Nera clocked to clinch the title of the world’s fastest.

The engine is a fully souped-up unit producing 1850 horsepower thanks to a twin-turbocharger kit, custom engine internals, intake system, exhaust and ECU tuning. The car runs race fuel to extract every bit of power from the 5.2-liter V-10 engine. Inside, the dashboard has been revised with new dials and gauges.
