With 1750 HP At Its Disposal, This Gallardo Isn’t Taking Any Prisoners; Only An Owner

How much power is too much? You’ll only find out if you buy this gaudy Lamborghini Gallardo.

Throughout its 10-year lifespan, the Gallardo evolved from a 493 hp, 5.0-litre V10-powered sports car, into a carefully crafted, lightweight, 5.2-litre high-performance automobile. Even so, it never left the factory with more than 562 hp, but this particular example develops a massive 1,750 hp on high-boost.

That’s 3.1 times more powerful than the LP 570-4 Superleggera, and all thanks to a twin-turbo system and a plethora of engine mods, implemented by Heffner Performance. The standard 5000 cc 40 valve, DOHC V10 was fully rebuilt and now accommodates 10:1 CP Pistons, Carillo billet connecting rods, custom camshafts, ported heads, oversize valves, ported intake manifold, dual 1100 hp fuel pumps, 2000 hp intercoolers, 10 2000cc injectors, and, most importantly two bb turbos with twin Tial 50mm blow-off-valves. Oh, and it redlines at 8500+ RPM.

That translates into a 2.5 seconds sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph), a 6.5 seconds sprint from 0 to 200 km/h (124 mph), and a 21.4 seconds sprint from 0 to 300 km/h (186 mph). The quarter mile is covered in 8.7 seconds, while the top speed is well beyond 400 km/h (248 mph). But if that’s too much, you can always set the engine at 1500 hp.

The vehicle’s visual style hasn’t escaped an overhaul either, receiving a full IMSA GTV wide-body conversion with a carbon-fiber wing. Even the 20-inch rims are ultra-lightweight forged IMSA wheels, wrapped in 315/25zr20 Michelin Pilots in the rear and in the front 245/30zr20.

The interior, austere as it is, was adorned in Alcantara, while the carbon fiber racing seats hold you in place. With only 35,000 miles on the clock, the 2004 Lambo is up for grabs on eBay for $190,000, but it  could be a steal if you appreciate the amount of work, money and time that went into it.
