The roof of the 1 mile record has just been 'officially' blown-off by a power-packing Gallardo TT. The car decimated the mile mark in a time that quite frankly's quicker than most of us could do the standing 1/4 mile. Oh, and it was all for a bet...
The driver Leonid V. is a regular competitor at the ultra Unlim 500+. It was here they he vowed to break the infamous mile in less than 21 seconds and entered into a bet that would net the driver 100,000 Euro.
It's not been plain sailing for this ballsy driver and his team as in the autumn run Leonid's car infamously burst into flames, in fact he has blown up two Gallardo's in the process of chasing down the title.
Check out the video below as the Russian crew watch nervelessly as the car leaves, but then celebrate wildly as the times radio in. All we know it's going to be one hell of a party tonight!
Break down of what the team achieved:
1.6 seconds at 60ft
8.8 seconds to 1/4 mile @ 289kph
20.8 seconds to 1mile @ 409kph
