If you need to push your car to its limits, our friend Johnny Bohmer has 2.7 miles of the world’s flattest surface. After proving to NASA he would take good care of the Shuttle Landing Facility, manufacturers and aftermarket companies recognize the Johnny Bohmer Proving Grounds as the best location for high-speed testing. Although the runway is 3 miles long, the timing lights are 2.5 miles apart to give the driver a long shutdown area. On December 1st, the invited a few Bugatti Chiron, a McLaren P1, Lamborghini Aventador SV, and a Huracan LP610-4. Although AWD Huracans had been tested there before, this was the first stock Lamborghini Huracan LP580-2 top speed Run.
As the most affordable Lamborghini, the 5.2L V10 is detuned from 610 horsepower to 572, with 339 lb-ft of torque. Without the center transfer case or the front axles it is still rated to reach 62 mph in 3.4 seconds, 124 mph in 10.1 seconds, and a top speed of 199 mph. All this with an MSRP of $201,100 is a bargain in the supercar world. Is the Huracan fast enough for you, tell us in the comments below and stay with us for all your Johnny Bohmer uploads.
