Lamborghini hits 210 mph on Maimi airport runway

There’s no meal on this flight, but you can probably deal.

The Lamborghini Aventador Roadster has become the first car to travel faster than an airplane down a runway at Miami International Airport. And it did it with the top down.

The 692 hp supercar hit 210 mph on the airport’s south runway, confirmed by a Mami-Dade Police laser speed gun.

Jumbo jets using the airstrip have a takeoff speed between 150-180 mph and typically don’t break 200 mph until they’ve left the ground.

Nothing illegal going on here, however, the stunt was part of a media event marking the launch of the $441,600 drop top.

Unfortunately, you’ll have to put it on your airline credit card to get frequent flier miles.
