Lets say in this hypothetical situation, Jeff Bezos is a huge fan of Lamborghini. He wants a custom and ground breaking Lamborghini and he writes Lamborghini a blank check. These are his demands and they are non-negotiable.
  • Top speed = 250+ mph
  • 0 - 60 mph = <2 seconds
  • Horsepower = 1000+
  • Engine = naturually aspirated V12
Is it possible?

They could do it if they wanted to, absolutely possible. Just making the car lighter would be a good 1st step.

IMO, if he is looking at crank HP, it might be possible. The the new 812 Competizione makes 830 hp. With that new 812 engine, a tune could get you closer to the 870 hp mark. So with a blank check finding an additional 130 hp is probably obtainable. Now that’s Ferrari…. For Lambo, the SVJ engine is at 770 hp. A VFE tune will get you to 790 hp. I think finding 210 hp will be a little harder but probably still possible with a blank check….. It’s just really hard to hit that 1k hp mark without forced induction or electric assist while on pump gas……

Since you didn’t specify road legal then it’s a definite maybe. Keep an eye out for the Aston Martin Valkyrie AMR PRO. They haven’t released 0-60 numbers yet but it’s a track version of the regular Valkyrie and only uses the NA V12 pushing 1000hp. If any car could do it at this point that’s probably your best bet.

Regular Valkyrie 0-60 is 2.5s so I wouldn’t count on a sub 2s time. But perhaps further modification and/or lightening of the vehicle could achieve it. Wont be street legal though I believe.

Building an engine with this much power is possible but putting it to the ground is another story. Having the electric assist on the front wheels or AWD is the only way. In each case you are adding weight.
And a full carbon fiber body would help, but this hypothetical car is beginning to sound like a deathtrap.

Blank check with no restriction on mods and also accepted the risk of blown engine? YES.

Completely possible just expensive. I build all kinds of custom engines. My Jalpa will turn 10k plus RPM and generate over 500 HP with 4 webers with only 3.9 liters. By the math it should be at 550.No it is not finished yet. The custom lifters alone cost me 4k, titanium valves, carillo rods and pistons, custom cams ported heads, etc , etc. 1000 Hp is pretty easy with modern tech you just have to go way up the rpm range and have pretty radical cam grinds, super good flowing heads and rods and pistons that can take the strain. The problem is to build a one off production car may not suit Lambo or their corporate objectives. Give me a blank check and I will damn sure build one. Lighten the chassis as much as humanly possible. Lower drag coefficients to bare minmums. Use an 8 liter motor. Turn 12 to 15 K RPM . Make 13 or 1400 HP and you will hit those numbers. You will spend lots of money on chassis and transmission. Engine power is not as difficult. Making it reliable and long lasting is another thing all together. Sounds like a fun project. Probably cost 4 or 5 million. (at least) Lee

I do believe top fuel funny car and dragsters are doing better than those numbers on V8's.

I stand corrected: its already being done. From Wikipedia

A top fuel dragster accelerates from a standstill to 100 mph (160 km/h) in as little as 0.8 seconds (less than one third the time required by a production Porsche 911 Turbo to reach 60 mph (100 km/h))[1] and can exceed 297 mph (478 km/h) in just 660 feet (200 m). This subjects the driver to an average acceleration of about 4.0 g0 (39 m/s2) over the duration of the race and with a peak of over 5.6 g0 (55 m/s2).
