    What's so difficult to believe? I mean, the power difference between the Protomotive Porsche & UGR Lambo is about the same power difference between this Turbo P-Car & UGR Lambos

    1000+ horspower Protomotive 996 Turbo beating up on an Underground Racing 1250+ hp Gallardo Spyder in Mexico, legit?

    Nice to see a daytime run video from "Mexico" for once. In one corner is a 996 Turbo tuned by well known Porsche tuner Protomotive with a claimed 1000+ horsepower. In the other is an LP-560 Spyder with a Twin Turbo setup from famed tuned Underground Racing. Keep in mind with either of these cars the horsepower can be quite up there and there are no specific numbers shown likely for the reason of the owners not wanting the competition to know.

    Yes, this video shows the Porsche coming out on top. Even when the Gallardo gets the jump the Turbo reels it in. With the final race where the UGR Gallardo gets a massive a different angle would have been quite useful but every single run establishes the Porsche as the faster car.

    Some users on the forums are calling BS but they need to keep in mind turbo Gallardos come in all kinds of flavors ranging from 600 wheel to 1800 wheel horsepower depending on what one spends. With a 996 Turbo it is no different it simply depends on how far one modded their car. What is clear is that both can be potent.

    Video below. Both cars said to be in kill mode which means at their best.

    I've seen videos from both of the cars on youtube, I didn't believe it either until I saw the same video uploaded by the Lambo owner on youtube. I don't think the Lambo owner would post his own bogus runs but who knows, quick cars regardless.

    For the haters, here's the car back in May when the owner switched over to a HTA3586 turbos & wanted to focus on setting his trap record. BTW, this car/owner has been invited to the Texas Invitational, so the P-Car is NO slouch.




    The car he ran is a 1250 WHP on Race Gas/Kill mode, making it a Stage 3 UGR-TT (Built Motor; Non-Race Spec)..... Here's a UGR 2R Shop Car (1,750+ WHP on Race Gas) making the TT-G 1/4 mile World Record Pass (aka, pushed harder than any customer car will be setup):


    SO after adding another 700 WHP+ (plus a custom gearset & ton of other custom mods), the TT-G netted an additional 30 MPH trap speed.

    $#@! em, you're baller enough to have a 4 digit horsepowered Porsche let alone any other car, I wouldn't give a $#@! about what anyone had to say about your car. Proof is in the video and people will take what they like from it either way you're going to have nonsense accumulated over the e-webs.

    Nothing is wrong with it.

    UGR Gallardo's have an inflated perception on forums.

    151 is very solid for a 996tt. That's one of the faster examples out there. There's a small handful that have fun faster.

    That p-car is running strong. Ive seen it in person. To be honest Im not suprised the outcome of the race but then again, its not the best UGR can come up with.

    Ultimately the 5.0 liter V10 with 8000+ rpm will always win.

    For the realistic, owner a P-car is going to be a significantly better option.... To get the Lambo to the Race 1 package / over 1k WHP, you're looking at $100k on just the motor; that's not trans/drivetrain/suspension/braking upgrades that should be made.

    Protomotive could get the same power out of 996/997 turbo with just upgraded internals (not crazy billet pieces like the ProLine/UGR Lambo motor) on the factory 3.6L displacement. AND then you've got guys like TimNYC & @prodigymb (and Bello) who are doing their HBK garage builds, putting out over 1k WHP and for even a fraction of that.

    There's no debating the value as 996tt's can be picked up for a bag of rocks and a potato today but the Gallardo owner isn't looking for HP for the buck anyway.

    If you want to go further, you can get an old foxbody and run 8's for a fraction of the cost to do so with either of these.
