Watch a 2,000-HP Lamborghini Blow Past a Kawasaki Ninja H2 at 200 MPH
Hold on to your butts. And your toupees.
Before we dive in here, let us offer the traditional automotive journalist's disclaimer for any post that contains drivers behaving like madmen on the street:
The Drive does not condone nor endorse reckless driving, speeding, or any form of vehicular lawbreaking. Please restrict all fast driving to closed tracks.
Now that we've got that out of the way: Holy crap, this video of a tuned Lamborghini racing a superbike at 200 mph down the highway is nuts.
According to the video's description, the matte blue Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder in question has been turbo'ed and tweaked by the maniacs at Underground Racing until its 5.2-liter V-10 cranks out around 2,000 horsepower. Assuming the car's speedometer is accurate, that's enough to send this topless Lambo from 100 to 200 miles per hour in a shade less than 10 seconds.
With the top down.
Granted, the motorcycle in question puts up a hell of a fight. It's a Kawasaki Ninja H2, a supercharged four-cylinder superbike that can rip off a sub-10-second quarter-mile time. Based on the other videos posted on the YouTube channel, the Ninja in this video appears to have been further modified to produce 245 horsepower at the wheel, allowing it to run an 8.34 second quarter-mile at 169 mph.
Yet even packing that sort of punch, the nightmare Ninja falls before the might of the twin-turbo Lamborghini. Woof.
