We all get itches from time to time. Some are just a burning desire for something more in life. Others should be checked out by a trained medical professional. But we digress. While many Lamborghinis come packed with horsepower and racing prowess, there are often times when no amount of satisfaction can be attained by a car enthusiast from just a stock car. It is a carryover from the weekend wrenchers and race car drivers from a time when engines and transmissions could be easily swapped, percolating some of the best sleeper machines to date.
By now it seems everyone in the automotive racing world is familiar with the annual TX2K event in Houston, Texas, each March. What everyone may not be aware of is the invitation-only clash of the titans race that takes place just weeks after, and attracts the biggest names in the high-end performance street scene. The Texas Invitational, a legendary, side-by-side roll racing event, held at a private airfield about twenty minutes east of Dallas, is truly a gathering of the who's who in high-end car builds.
This past weekend we once again ventured down to the Lone Star State for something we’ve heard much about—an event that is held in such high regard that it’s invite only, and we as media had to be vetted to be accepted into the circle of trust. This event, known as the Texas Invitational, is something many enthusiasts only dream of participating in—an event where the top vehicles of other high-profile Texas-based shootouts merely hope to maintain a position on the lower rungs in this bracket.
Season’s greetings from Revvolution! We apologize for crashing your holiday weekend, but we promise to do so only with a piece that will warm even the coldest and most cynical enthusiast’s heart. Our 2012 holiday feature highlights an infamous Underground Racing twin-turbo Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera. While we are all aware of the existence of boosted exotics, we rarely consider the courage it takes to execute such an undertaking.
