Lamborghini Huracan Performante Review Mar 20, 2017 by Cedric (Driver Weekly)
The 2018 Lamborghini Huracan Performante takes the already impressive Huracan supercar and ramps it up to eleven. The Performante aims to balance the features of a track machine with those of a road car.
The body is made from an exclusive forged composite and lightweight aluminum, a combination that lets the new performance model drop eighty pounds. The interior components that aren’t made from forged composites are covered in Alcantara suede or leather for a premium result. The infotainment system features Apple CarPlay, and the gauge cluster screen lets you know the ways that the Performante’s systems are improving handling.
As a supercar, the most interesting part of the Lamborghini Huracan Performante for the average person will be the powertrain and performance-related components. There are numerous active aerodynamic parts, including active flaps within the front spoiler to open and reduce drag on a high-speed run or create downforce while on the track. The engine itself is a naturally aspirated V10 with 443 pound-feet and 640 horsepower. Those lucky enough to get behind the wheel can reach 62 mph in just 2.9 seconds and stop in only 102 feet. These impressive capabilities will cost you, however, as the Lamborghini Huracan Performante starts in the U.S. at $274,390.
