Video: 1,900bhp Lambo crashes
Underground Racing’s modified Lamborghini Gallardo barrel rolls at the Texas Mile
A man has walked away unharmed after a highly modified Lamborghini Gallardo crashed at over 160kph in Texas.
Richard Holt was piloting an astonishing 1,900bhp twin-turbo Gallardo prepared by Underground Racing when he hit the brakes, deployed the parachute and attempted to stop.
However, crosswinds unsettled the supercar, and it clipped a wall off the edge of the runway, launching the two-door exotic into a violent barrel roll.
Holt, who had just hit a staggering 378kph before the crash, walked away virtually unharmed. He was flown to the nearest hospital with no major injuries, but light bruising.
A member of the racing team said: "it is nothing short of a miracle, considering the magnitude of the accident."
