Back in October 2003 the Texas Mile held its inaugural event with a mile and a half long track allowing drivers to go as fast as possible. It has become very popular for tuning enthusiasts over the years because you can top out your car without getting in trouble with the law. It’s the perfect place to set new records, however you wouldn’t want to be the owner of this twin-turbo Lamborghini Gallardo. Things went horribly wrong right after he hit the 1 mile marker, immediately deploying the parachute, and sending him off the right side of the track into a furry of flips. No doubt it was the parachute that caused this crash, and the sad part is that the car didn’t even need a parachute. Lamborghini factory brakes would have been plenty to stop the car before the end of the track.
The Lamborghini Gallardo was built by Underground Racing for Richard Holt, and carries a twin-turbocharged V10 rated between 1,500 and 1,900 horsepower. This is more than enough to attempt breaking a new standing mile world record, however the car was sent flying through the air going well over 100 mph or 160 km/h. Fortunately, Mr. Holt was able to survive this insane wreck, and the only victim taken was the Lamborghini.
