image/video source

Underground Racing built this Twin Turbo Gallardo to go one mile racing. It was making just shy of 2000rwhp. At the Texas Mile, on October 23rd, 2010, they were attempting to set a new record. The driver went through the traps at just under 240mph. When he pulled the chute, the back of the car got loose causing the car to exit the track to the right. The car then went over a berm, causing it to go air born. Due to the extensive safety equipment, and a lot of luck, the driver walked away from this crash. - [filed under: crashes]
