The hardcore version of Sant’Agata’s junior supercar that made its presence felt at 2017 Geneva Motor Show last-month, Lamborghini Huracán Performante is now on-sale in India priced at Rs 3.97 crore (ex-showroom).
On 5 October 2016, the Huracán Performante set a new production car lap record on the Nürburgring Nordschleife in Germany, beating the Porsche 918 Spyder’s time by 5s and nearly 8s ahead of its Aventador SV stablemate. Driven by Lamborghini test driver Marco Mapelli, the Performante recorded a lap time of 6min 52.01s.
The Huracán Performante is the result of Lamborghini innovations, producing a super sports car balanced between achieving the best lap times on a circuit with the most engaging and dynamic road driving. It weighs 40kgs than the standard Hurácan – this is thanks to the use of new lightweight technologies, active aerodynamics with aero vectoring and a new set-up of chassis, all-wheel-drive system and further improved powertrain.
Lamborghini has tweaked the 5.2-litre V10 engine to produce 640hp, now up by 30hp from the standard Huracán AWD coupe and 600Nm of torque, up by 40Nm. It can sprint from 0-100kph in just 2.9sec, that’s 0.3sec faster than the regular Huracán with a top speed of over 325kph. The increased outputs come as a result of optimised intake and exhaust fluid dynamics, a more efficient air intake and new titanium valves that allow for higher valve lift.
Like other Lambo’s, each Huracán Performante can be customized as per the individual requirement through the Lamborghini Ad Personam Program.
