This beautiful madness started when Olivier Benloulou was introduced to Haig Kanadjian, co-owner of Elite Garage Operations of Montreal, which is known for high-end, custom modifications and race operations. OB was looking for a local tuner to manage their endeavors. Haig and his partner, Harry, have been servicing OB’s projects and operations ever since. Fast-forward and we arrive at these breathtaking Italian machines they currently unleash at multiple races around the country. That’s right, plural: a blue 2008 Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera and a red 2012 Super Trofeo Stradale.
Airstrip attack racing has exploded in popularity in recent years, helping it become one of the most popular modern motorsports. Combining a stationary start with the crazy speeds of a half-mile drag race, airstrip attack racing pushes both man and machine to the very edge.
OB Prestige Auto's 2,000+ horsepower Gallardo Superleggera just dominated Shift-S3ctor's Airstrip Attack 7 (be sure to check out our official coverage) by blasting a scorching 229.1 mph half-mile run (read: soon after this video was published, they set two consecutive passes, each besting this trap speed; more on that later).
