In following up on last week’s video teaser, which showcased the ride breaking the Porsche 918 Spyder’s lap record of 6:57, Lamborghini now fully unveils its new Huracán Performante.
First off, the automobile was able to shed roughly 90 pounds of weight, due to the utilization of carbon fiber on everything from the hood and spoilers to the rear bumper and diffuser. In regards to the spoilers, they now come equipped with electrically-actuated flaps allowing air channels at the back spoiler to be opened or closed in order “to change airflow qt the rear wing, optimize downforce, or reduce drag.” Furthermore, the left and right rear flaps can be opened or closed individually to counteract load transfer by increasing downforce to keep the Huracán flat throughout a turn.
The all-new Huracán Performante then welcomes a massive V10 engine capable of cranking out 640 horsepower and 443 lb-ft of torque, scooting from 0 to 62 mph in 2.9 seconds. Lastly, the ride tops out at 202 mph.
