It is almost common-placed to peruse the internet and Youtube for videos featuring ridiculously fast twin-turbo Lamborghinis, especially when it comes to forced-fed Gallardo creations birthed by tuner shops such as Underground Racing and Heffner Performance.
One thing that was lacking -was a Lamborghini Gallardo to break 8 seconds in the quarter mile. Usually, running record-breaking quarter mile times is not on the mind of every twin-turbo Lamborghini owner. One exception happens to be a customer of Heffner Performance who had his sights on an 8 second run in his 2008 Gallardo Superleggera.
Jason Heffner and his mad scientist team were in for a challenging to please a customer, who happens to be an avid drag racer of exotic cars. No compromise would be made in this build, which required a pair of custom-built ball bearing turbos and MoTec electronics to produce around 1,400 (estimated) wheel horsepower.
No this was not Hollywood prepping the latest Fast and Furious film, this was a real test of the engineering foundation of Lamborghini and Jason Heffner’s 14+ years of experience in tuning some of the most exotic vehicles on earth.
