The Lamborghini Huracán Performante is the new king of the ‘Ring. With its naturally aspirated V10 engine and adaptive aerodynamics working in tandem, the Huracán Performante lapped the Nürburgring in 00:06:52:01, thus setting a new record for best lap and becoming the fastest standard production car at the Shrine of Speed. But all of that is no match for a kerb.
You see, not only does the Performante ride lower than the standard Huracán, it’s front spoiler, amongst other parts, is made from Forged Composites, a new material made of carbon fiber and resin. It might be lighter and stronger than CF itself, but more expensive, and definitely not kerb friendly.
The video, courtesy Manish Asrani shows the driver of this Huracán Performante gingerly taking the super car out on the road from the shop. At around at 1:30, a kerb gets in the way. As he nannies the INR 3.97 crore exotic, do we hear a faint scrunch as the Forged Composites kiss the kerb?
Even with the nose lift feature (the nose is raised by a few inches at the flick of a switch to clear larger obstacles on the road) on, the low-slung car could barely clear the kerb. This is the first time that footage has appeared showing the Huracán Performante out on Indian roads (if only for a brief while as this unit has only been brought in for promotional purposes).
