Automobili Lamborghini unveiled the Huracan Perfomante at the Geneva Motor Show, combining new lightweight technologies, active aerodynamics with aero vectoring and a new setup of chassis, all-wheel drive system and further improved powertrain.

The Huracan Performante's V10 engine puts out 640bhp at 8,000rpm and produces 600Nm of torque at 6,500rpm
The Huracan 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. On 5th October 2016, the Huracan Performante set a new production car lap record of 6:52.01 on the Nurburgring Nordschleife in Germany.

The enhanced naturally aspirated Huracan engine is the most powerful V10 produced to date by Lamborghini. Outputting 640bhp at 8,000rpm and producing 600Nm of torque at 6,500rpm, it is distinguished by a new bronze manifold that draws on the heritage of previous special edition engines such as the Diablo 30th Anniversary power plant.

The Huracan Performante's suspension system has been revised, reflecting the Performante's purpose as a track and performance-orientated car. The suspension has been vertically stiffened by 10 percent over the Huracan coupe, via both springs and bars, and roll stiffness improved by 15 percent. The stiffness of the radial and axial arm bushings has been improved by 50 percent, significantly enhancing lateral control of the car.

The permanent four-wheel drive system is tuned to maximise traction on all situations, working in conjunction with the Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva system and exploiting the new P Zero Corsa tyres. The first customers will take delivery of the new Lamborghini Huracan Performante in Summer 2017.
