Underground Racing takes your "everyday" Lamborghini Gallardo, and then turns it into a twin-turbocharged exotic beast that burps fire and destroys rubber. Robert Himler is a young man that is fortunate enough to own such an automobile, and his example produces 1,250 horsepower... at the wheels.

That sounds awesome. It also sounds terrifying, and Himler's mom would agree. She recently rode shotgun with Robert while the driver had a dash-mounted camera rolling to catch her reactions to the ride. The fun starts at just over a minute in, but the video is fairly boring after that. Skip to the funny, then check out the other clip we have for showing Himler's Gallardo pretending it's a flamethrower. Both videos are yours for the watching, after the jump.

        As a comment on the video on YouTube puts it best: Lamborghini Gallardo: 150,000 dollars. Underground racing Twin Turbo kit: 100,000 dollars. Having thousands of people tell you your mom's hot on the internet: priceless. : alexhc09

        They are not their mom's. They are their COUGAR girlfriends in their exhusbands cars.

      Simply a cheap version of "Ricardo Patrese takes his wife for a spin." Watch the original on You Tube, it is hilarious.

      Bunch of losers commenting on this thread. Get a damn life and let the guy who has earned his lifestyle, enjoy it. At least he's not ******* off the government teat like some ordinary clowns on this blog. He's got the time to post and make vids because he's earns enough money to not have to punch a time clock. To even post a critical comment about the man's hair loss and then to try to even speculate about his childhood based on a few minutes of video, speaks volumes about your insecurities. The guy made the video to show off his mom's eccentric reactions. He seems to be someone who has got his **** together and most hot women will get a charge out of that - much more so than a head of hair.

        Calling someone a loser based on comments is just as speculative, is it not? I do agree that dissing him for things he can't change is cheap (I didn't). And after reading http://www.secretentourage.com/success-stories/robert-himler/ I guess he wasn't bullied, either. He has worked hard and uses his cash just as thoughtlessly as any other 20 year old - he just has more of it than most. And I can tell you I know, I was 20 in the late 80's and boy do I shake my head looking back. If he continues growing up as a person he'll do the same in 2031... Oh, and having read the article it is clear you are wrong. He posts videos to turn our curiosity into his cash. And such is the world today that most think that's all good.

          "Calling someone a loser based on comments is just as speculative, is it not?" It is perfectly reasonable to call some AB commenters losers based on some of the idiotic things some people post here.
