Lamborghini Huracan Performante
Lamborghini Huracan already potent, thanks in part to a V10. Performante variant further ups the ante.

NEW lightweight technologies, active aerodynamics with aero vectoring, and a new setup for the chassis and all-wheel-drive system — plus further improvements on the power train — define the latest variant of the Lamborghini Huracan.

Called Huracan Performante, Lamborghini said the “newest bull from its stable” is a super sports car that strikes a balance between achieving the best lap times on a circuit with the most engaging and dynamic road driving manners. Some of the car’s features are active aerodynamics called the Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva, forged carbon-fiber pieces that reduce weight by 40 kilograms, and a 5.2-liter V10 normally aspirated engine that sees a bump power output — or to 640 hp. This, according to Lamborghini, is enough to send the Huracan Performante to 100 kph from a standstill in 2.9 seconds, and to a 325-kph top speed.

“The Huracan Performante is the convergence of technological developments to produce a car delivering perfect performance,” said Stefano Domenicali, chairman and CEO of Lamborghini.
