The 2017 drag racing season has delivered yet another record over the weekend, with the twin-turbo Lambo Huracan going well above the 200 mph barrier in a half-mile.
However, the female driver of this Lamborghini Huracan seems to have grabbed even more attention than a velocity monster.
We will start with the all-important velocity number, mentioning that a said Raging Bull pulled the 210.67 half-mile run. Well, upon finding out that this made for the female half-mile world record, the Internet (read: the important part of the YouTube users who dropped comments for this video of the run) were triggered.
Going past a gender-related debates kickstarted by the velocity feat, we will drop some numbers to put the 210 mph run delivered by a Heffner Performance-tuned Lambo into perspective.
As those of you who are tuned into our drag racing tales know, a current Lamborghini 1/2-mile record sits with the 3,000 horsepower monster built by Underground Racing, which hit 250 mph during the event that took place in May.
The GT-R camp topped that number last month, when the 3,100 horsepower incarnation of Godzilla raised the bar to 255 mph, with the vehicle having been modded by the Extreme Turbo Systems. And yes, given a drag racing rivalry between the two platforms, the comparison does make sense.
