As modern automotive technologies improve, so do the massive amounts of horsepower available to enthusiasts and racers alike. This phenomenon is perhaps the most visible at a drag strip where turbocharged engines and ultra-quick transmissions routinely break records. However, it seems the Lamborghini Huracan has become a recent favorite thanks to its robust and durable powertrain. In fact, one of these Lamborghinis built by AMS Performance makes 2,000 hp and runs a seven-second quarter-mile.
How fast is the world’s fastest Lamborghini Huracan?
Once upon a time, this Lamborghini Huracan you see above popping a wheelie began as a completely stock supercar. In stock form, it houses a 5.2-liter naturally-aspirated V10 developing 602 hp and 413 lb-ft of torque. While these figures are certainly enough for the street, they won’t get you very far on a drag strip. According to CarScoops, AMS Performance started out by adding two turbochargers and a billet intake manifold.
The next step was to strengthen the car’s transmission to handle all of the excess power. Aside from just holding power, the car’s dual-clutch has to perform repeatedly at a track without breaking or overheating. Thankfully, this is commonly known as a very robust powertrain, which is why so many racers utilize it.
With all of these modifications put together, you end up with a Lamborghini Huracan that produces around 2,000 hp and 1,279 lb-ft of torque at the wheels. If we’re measuring crank horsepower, those figures quickly swell.
It runs a seven-second quarter mile time
According to CarScoops, the team behind this Lamborghini Huracan is still working to develop it in order to extract its full potential. This requires getting the front end to stick despite the massive power on offer. To help out, the team fitted Mickey Thompson ET drag radials on all four corners with massive rear tires. The result of these efforts is a car that can run the quarter-mile in 7.33 seconds at 194.52 mph.
If those figures seem larger than life, that’s because they are. According to 1320video, that quarter-mile time makes this Italian supercar the world’s fastest Lamborghini Huracan. Given the rate with which these cars improve over the years, it wouldn’t be surprising to see one of these cars get dangerously close to a seven-minute time.
How much does this Lamborghini Huracan cost?
If you’re wondering how much a Lamborghini Huracan such as this one cost, the answer isn’t cheap. For starters, you need to buy the supercar itself in stock form. If you’re buying a brand-new car, you’re looking at a base price of just over 200,000. However, you could save some cash by buying a used example.
According to AMS, the most expensive kit it’ll sell you is its Alpha 12 package, which ranges from $77,000 to $97,000. Thankfully, these figures include all of the installation necessary. However, this gets you a car with a little over 1,200 hp. If you want to reach into the 2,000-hp range, chances are you’ll have to pay up considerably more.
