Racing on the street is dangerous, let alone illicit; at the same time, there is no denying that it is thrilling to watch, especially when the vehicles dueling each pack 1,500 horsepower or more. Yes, 1,500 horsepower.
The first contender is a fire-spitting Lamborghini Gallardo tuned to produce 1,500 horsepower courtesy of Underground Racing — a tuning company made famous for their work with exotic cars. The other is a C6 Corvette tuned by Late Model Racecraft, which according to the video’s description, was pushing 1,700 horsepower (!) at the time of the race.
Despite the power advantage, it seemed to be the superior all-wheel-drive grip and faster shifting of the Lambo that gave it the edge over the Corvette during multiple pulls. However, the LMR Corvette could have the last laugh if it wanted to, as its output can be adjusted to make 2,200 fire-spitting horsepower — a setting the driver uses for standing mile races.
