It’s the middle of winter here in the Northern Hemisphere, meaning most racing is suspended until the mercury starts to rise again. This is especially true in the case of Moscow Unlim, the series in which Russia’s top tuners (and, it must be said, bravest drivers) launch a United Nations of supercars down a mile-long dragstrip just outside the Motherland’s capital in search of lower elapsed times and higher trap speeds. But then again, who says they have to confine their high-speed hijinks to Russia?

Such was the case back in November, when some of the sport’s best travelled to Tympaki Airport on the Greek island of Crete, for the first ever meet on foreign soil. However, when all was said and done, one team stayed behind with its twin-turbocharged Lamborghini Gallardo Nera (an all-black special edition from 2006). They did this not to enjoy the nice weather, but to set a new standing mile record, which they did, setting new marks of 20.845 seconds and 254.5 mph. Not bad for a “junior” Lamborghini with a good-ol’-fashioned three-pedal manual transmission
