Rally guys are unhinged. We assume you know that, but when you see some mamaluke abusing a supercar in a meth-lab backyard, you tend to judge.
But hold your OMGDafukHahas; here’s some context: the guy going all Dukes of Hazzard on this orange Gallardo is Matt Brandenburg, founder of Brakim Racing. Matt’s a software wiz who caught the stage rally bug a few years back, and his team has been racing, jumping and breaking shit ever since.
But Matt wasn’t just looking for the fastest way to blow through a ton of cash—even though his fire-farting, gravel-throwing antics pretty much ensure rapid, right-before-your-eyes depreciation. Instead, this was an emphatic statement that this bull’s prissy car-show days are over. Yes, the "Brakimghini” will live its next life as a stage rally racer.
Brakim started stripping the supercar soon after this vid was shot, and most of the body, interior and drivetrain are now gonzo. They’ll be installing a cage, rebuilding the high-rpm V-10 and prepping this thing for stage rallies, with huge suspension travel and itty-bitty wheels. We can’t wait to see how it turns out—Godspeed boys, you’re on the crazy end even for rally drivers.
