There’s a 2,000-Horsepower Lamborghini Gallardo For Sale on Autotrader

Here’s something interesting: For those of you who think the regular, normal, “everyday” Lamborghini Gallardo is just a little too dull and uninspiring, here’s a 2006 Lamborghini Gallardo with around 2,000 horsepower. This is a considerable upgrade over a standard Gallardo, which had about 500 horsepower.

Of course, many of us thought that 500 horsepower was a totally acceptable figure, but apparently that wasn’t the case for the owner of this car. As a result, this Gallardo has been twin-turbocharged to put out 1,750 wheel horsepower, which is roughly 2,000 horses at the crank. The list of upgrades and aftermarket parts truly goes on for the entire ad description, totaling hundreds of words with items like “Total seal TNT file fit rings” and “Aeromotive adjustable fuel pressure regulator.” Maintaining this car sounds like it’d be a chore.

Then again, the payoff might be worth it, because it’s surely just about the fastest Lamborghini around. While there are a lot of twin-turbocharged Gallardo models, surely most don’t make quite this much horsepower, and the acceleration must be thrilling. In fact, this is one of the few times an exotic car like this is likely hampered by its manual transmission; there’s no way a human person can shift quickly enough to truly manage all this power at full throttle.

But, regardless, this Gallardo can be yours if you want the ride of a lifetime. It’s offered by Net Car Showroom in Houston with just under 8,000 miles for $169,999 — big money for a 2006 Gallardo. But then again, this 2006 Gallardo is a little more special (and exciting) than most of the others.
