Heffner Performance Lamborghini Murcielago Twin-Turbo – Click above for high-res image gallery

Sure, there are some cars on the road more bonkers than the Lamborghini Murcielago. But not many. After all, how do you best over 570 horsepower driving all four wheels? Well, how about nearly doubling the output and channeling it all through half the wheel count? That's exactly what Heffner Performance has done with its twin-turbo upgrade for the aging raging bull. By bolting on a set of turbochargers, the Sarasota, Florida-based tuning garage has boosted the corral up to 1,100 horsepower, all driving through the rear wheels.

As you can see from the photos in the high-res image gallery below and the pair of videos after the jump, the craftsmanship looks flawless. But it's the acceleration that really boggles the mind. With that much power channeled through two wheels, we don't want to ask about the standstill sprint to 60 mph, but Heffner's given us a hint at the twin-turbo Murci's in-gear acceleration times, which is really what it all comes down to. A stock Murcielago can jump from 60 miles per hour up to 130 in 9.5 seconds. Pretty impressive, but that's just for reference. The Heff? 5.1 seconds. In 90-degree heat. With "only" 950 horsepower dialed in. With all 1,100, Heffner figures she'll do it in less than four.

PRESS RELEASE:

Heffner Performance Murcielago TT Release Info


After several long months of development we have completed our twin turbo Murcielago. As of August 2009 we have tuned the car up to 1 bar of boost which resulted in just over 1100 RWHP. For now we are playing around with the car at various boost levels and documenting the differences in performance with our trusty V Box.

In 90 degree heat the car pulled off a 5.10 second 60-130 at around 950 RWHP. For reference a stock 580 horsepower Murcielago takes around 9.5 seconds to make the leap from 60 to 130.

With a little more boost it will dip into the 4 second range for sure.

The Heffner Twin Turbo Murcielago is an absolute blast to drive and sounds like nothing we have ever heard.

Please contact us at 941-359-0900 for further information and pricing.

      jojo this car make Veyron looks like a pice of sh** man...nice :)
      • 5 Years Ago
      so 1100 RWHP, so about 1250 horsepower at the crank? am I right?

      DAMN! I'm not sure of the extent of modifications but with that much power it must cost twice the price of a murci because at some point the internals wouldn't be able to handle it with modification... could be wrong though...

      with that said that thing is HOT!

      My days of fantasizing of 1000+ hp are over. I'll take my Murci stock...in Batman grey.

      I'm pretty sure the car is still awd. Whenever I see the dynos from ugr and heffner, they're rwd, but I think that's because the awd dynos might not be able to handle that kind of power or something, or because they're more expensive. rwd seems suicidal on a car putting out this much power anyways.

      Ok I'll admit, their turbo set up looks like a work of art. No wonder its uncovered.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Can't get enough of the sound at high rpm.

      At this point where 1,000hp is the new 500hp, I don't care how fast it really is but that being overpowered and RWD is what a Lamborghini should be and that's what makes me love this car.

        @HotRodzNKustoms
        I was going to say the same thing about 1000hp being the new 500hp.
        Somehow 1000hp is not as exciting as it was before the Veyron was introduced.

        @HotRodzNKustoms
        is 60-130 the new 0-60?

        why not mention the 0-60? or 0-130?

        maybe its not capable of going anything less than 60 unless its stopped
      • 5 Years Ago
      It makes you wonder if you'll ever really get to use all that power.

        I've got just 2 questions.

        Is it faster than a Veyron?

        Is it as safe as a Veyron?
        • 5 Years Ago
        maybe at those one off events tanner keeps hitting up... and occasionally when the highway's totally empty?
      • 5 Years Ago
      OMG, so evil sounding, to bad they don't give any figures about 0-60 or top speed. Beware Bugatti
      • 5 Years Ago
      All there cars are awesome
      • 5 Years Ago
      Gloriously F***in Rediculous.

      only one question comes to mind....Why?

      ....the answer im sure is "why not"...but still
        • 5 Years Ago
        to make rich people crap their pants
      • 5 Years Ago
      That turbo setup is BEAUTIFUL. I bet the noise it makes is beautiful as well....
