Underground Racing 240 MPH Standing Half Mile World Record
When it comes to the half-mile records that we see pushed higher and higher, we’ve got to say that with every shattering of the previous peak, we’re impressed again and again.
This time, the summit has been pushed even higher at Shift S3ctor Pikes Peak when our friend, Gidi Chamdi, managed to rocket his Underground Racing X Version Lamborghini Gallardo SL to 240.6 mph, surpassing the previous high of 238.6 mph.
Just when you thought that traveling at such a high rate of speed made your record safe, the monsters from UGR came out and about to bring it down.
It really leads one to wonder how much higher records will go. Will we ever see street capable cars like this knocking on the 250 mph or even 300 mph door? That’s almost unfathomable!
Check out the video below that shows the incredible car and breathtaking pass that inks Gidi’s name in the record books once again! We’d like to give a big congratulations to everyone who made this all happen 1.6-miles above sea level.
