The Texas Mile event last March produced some pretty scorching times from a number of souped-up supercars, but nobody had a better weekend than Underground Racing’s Twin-Turbo Gallardo Superleggera, which blistered the tarmac at a staggering top speed of 250.1 mph - that’s 402.49 kmh if you’re keeping count.

It took three tries for Richard Holt, who was sitting behind the wheel of the Superleggera, to top 250. In the end, the third time proved to be a charm.

Check out the video and watch it for yourself.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

Wow! Everytime I’ve seen a new release of the Lamborghini, i can’t help but react like it was the first time that i have seen one. haha. Black and white touch looks better IMO. Is this the only color available for the Twin Turbo?

I’m getting tried of super cars, they’re for the ultra-ridiculously rich, or slapped around by auto journalists that think they’re special. Other than that, these super cars are useless expensive machines that are beautiful works of art nothing more, nothing real for any real consumer, because lets face it, who here can REALLY afford any of these super-cars? .25%? What a wasted effort.

Can I get the next round? I’d prefer the Porsche, but if they just happened to let me drive the Gallardo, I don’t think I could say no.

have been a Cayenne hater for years, but the fact that it can perform on the track, then drive OFF ROAD is pretty sick... Talk about the ultimate get-away vehicle!!

250MPH only? so it means the ford is more faster than this? ford GT has a top speed of 266MPH max speed.

dang.... that was a fun run, I bet it’s hard to concentrate with that kind of speed.

I believe the Veyron takes 2-3 miles to reach it’s top speed of 254-255mph.

Is this the stock version of superleggera? Or they’ve already tuned it?

What else do we expect, its a Twin-Turbo Gallardo Superleggera? That car is a monster and the speed will only depends on its driver.

Pretty impressive speed but still it still won’t reach the speed made by the brabus TKR. A record breaking 270MPH.
