The Lamborghini Huracan Performante is still under cover. Sharad Agarwal, Head, Lamborghini India, takes the stage.
Lamborghini India will launch the Huracan Performante in a few minutes. As we wait for the official launch to take place, let us tell you in detail about the Nurburging record holder. Don’t forget to keep hitting that refresh button though.
Unveiled at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, The Huracan Performante is inspired from the Huracan Trofeo race car. Prior to its debut, the Italian sports car maker had teased their upcoming product on various occasions. The Huracan Performante made it to the headlines time and again after it made a new record at the Nurburgring by finishing a lap in 6:52 minutes. The raging bull from Italy was a full five seconds faster than the previous record holder, the Porsche 918 Spyder.
While the Huracan Performante continues to source power from the same 5.2-litre NA V10 engine as seen on the standard model, this engine has now been tuned to produce 640 PS of power and 600 Nm of torque. Mated to a tweaked version of the seven speed dual clutch transmission, power is sent to the rear wheels.
A few other noteworthy changes to the model include Forged Composite carbon fibre used to make parts such as the engine cover, front spoiler, rear bumper, rear spoiler, diffuser, centre console, paddles, HVAC vents and door handles. Courtesy of the new material, the Huracan Performante is now 40 kgs lighter as well. Also on offer is a rear wing that increases full braking and high speed cornering by 750 percent, according to Lamborghini.
Inside, the Lamborghini Huracan Performante also comes equipped with new digital cockpit displays that can be configured depending on the choice of the following drive modes: Strada, Sport or Corsa. The dashboard display will also show the user when and how the ALA works.
If you thought that the re-tuned engine and a few other updates helped the Huracan Performante achieve the feat at the ‘ring, let me tell you that the model also comes equipped with Active Aero Agenda or ‘Aerodynamica Lamborghini Attiva’ as Lamborghini likes to call it. The technology allows the car to switch between maximum downforce and low drag setups by adjusting flaps in the front spoiler and at the rear.
