About This Car
“A remarkable achievement for a naturally aspirated supercar competing in a forced-induction world”.
The perfect lap at any track is a puzzle. Every turn of the steering wheel, stab of the brakes, and throttle application is a piece to fit together.
While you’re busy keeping the 631-hp V-10 from scattering the pieces, the Huracán Performante bangs into its rev limiter because you didn’t pull the paddle at the exact right moment. Son of a putanna!
Most other cars with automatics will still perform their own redline upshifts in their most aggressive modes, but the Lamborghini in its Corsa setting requires a perfectly timed tug of the right paddle.
Surfing the publicity buzz of a 6:52.01 Nurburgring lap time (if you take Nordschleife comparisons seriously, that’s 5secs better than a Porsche 918 Spyder could manage), the Lamborghini Huracán Performante might reasonably be mistaken for a domesticated version of the company’s Blancpain Super Trofeo one-make series racer: lighter, stiffer, harder, heavier hitting etc, etc…
Nothing so perfunctory or, indeed, unwanted in an increasingly ‘…cake and eat it’ sector. As long as you don’t option the desperately uncomfortable fixed-back bucket seats, the Performante is just as habitable and comprehensively equipped as the regular LP610-4 on which it’s based. Yes, it is more powerful (plus 29bhp equals 631bhp) and it is lighter (by 40kg) but the clever bit really is the clever bit: ‘Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva’ or ALA for short a truly remarkable active aero system.
Star of the regular Huracan is its 5.2-litre, naturally aspirated V10 powertrain. Good news on two counts: it’s even more engagingly violent here and has never been as completely exercised by a road-going Lambo’s chassis and aero. The power hike comes from a new intake manifold, a lighter and repositioned exhaust system and new titanium valves with more lift. The upshot is 631bhp at 8000rpm and 443lb ft of torque at 6500rpm, though some 70 per cent of that is available from just above idle.
