Even if a 2006 Lamborghini Gallardo SE is considered an old horse when compared to its newer brethren, it’s still one of the fastest and most powerful Lamborghinis you’ll ever find. With a 5.0-liter engine that produces 520 horsepower, the Gallardo SE has performances numbers that shouldn’t be laughed at, but as far as some customers are concerned, 500 ponies just doesn’t cut it anymore. One such owner of a 2006 Gallardo SE apparently isn’t too thrilled that his Italian supercar only has 500 horsepower under its hood, so he decided to enlist the services of American tuner, Bradan, to turn his supercar into an 800-horsepower beast.

To make this goal a reality, Bradan is rebuilding the engine while reinforcing it to handle the increased boost pressure that comes with it. On top of that, the US tuner will also design, develop, and build a new turbo system to increase the car’s power similar to how an OEM power curve does it.

There’s plenty of laborious work and tedious research involved in such a build and there’s plenty more work to do before the car is officially ready for its maiden run at the race track. For now, the tuning company has released some photos of the work being done on the car, including a video of the Gallardo SE undergoing a baseline test.

We’’ll be sure to update you on any further developments from Bradan.

Just take a look at that car, it certainly still has all the qualities that will make it stand out, even with the newer models.

Oh! I just remember about the teaser of Lamborghini for the upcoming Frankfurt Motor Show. I wonder if they will be making a successor for this car?

Gallardo would be one of the impressive production ever made by the Lamborghini. The platform of the car seems edgy though it has a luxurious styling. I think its aerodynamic kit needs a little modification.

Well, as expected from this car it has an impressive performance. The features included in the tuning package makes the car to look more amazing!

The performance of this car is really a beast! Its power output is almost equivalent to a Bugatti car! However, it seems that the car seems to be edgy.

We need to test this Lamborghini if it still has the speed and power. Upgrading its components will have a great chance to beat its own record.

Me, I really wouldn’t surprised if they would actually redo this one in the next few months. Bradan is really quite notable when it comes to improving their previous projects and this one would be no exception.

I am not expecting too much with this upgrade. However, this kind of enhancement Lamborghini will able to prove that its one of the fastest and most powerful sportscar to date.

OK, I would go with you guys one the looks of this baby. But what I am really amazed of are the performance upgrades that they have done to the car, especially in the engine.

Yeah, I certainly would agree with you on that one. The standard looks of the Gallardo is already amazing as it is. But the thing that I really love about this one is the performance upgrades that they did.

Gallardo with a Twin-Turbo can is really and still the fastest Lamborghini in town. I think it can deal with the new Lamborghini Aventador.

This is extremely rare! For a 300 hp boost on the power of the car I think its kind of impressive!

However, although the car have a powerful engine it doesn’t mean that its top speed will increase as well.

Wow!Does it mean that they have used a Twin-Turbo for this car to make it more powerful because its engine is kind of outdated?Well, I guess they have succeed in making a high performing car.

This one actually looks a bit too close to the standard Gallardo, which is actually a surprisingly good thing. I really love how the regular car looks that I really don’t want it to change that much.

I really wouldn’t consider this one an old horse (not even an old bull, if you know what I mean). Just take a look at that car, it certainly still has all the qualities that will make it stand out, even with the newer models.
