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. Built by Underground Racing, the Gallardo Nera is based on a 2007 Lamborghini Gallardo. Being a "Nera" the exterior is painted in black with some modifications done to the bodywork.
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.
A couple of shift indicators are added to aid the driver improve precision and shave a few crucial tenths with every shift. Meanwhile, the all-wheel drive system works overtime to grip the surfaces via a small section of rubber that is in contact with the road surface.
