“The Huracán Performante is the convergence of technological developments to produce a car delivering perfect performance,” says Automobili Lamborghini Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Stefano Domenicali. “This new car represents the powerhouse of Lamborghini DNA and innovation, and a 360 degree approach to creating class-leading super sports cars. It illustrates the pinnacle of Lamborghini V10 production car performance to date, on both track and road, and is perfectly exemplified by its name: Lamborghini Huracán Performante.”
Based on a hybrid aluminum and carbon fiber frame, the Huracán Performante’s body is produced from aluminium in conjunction with significant use throughout of Lamborghini’s award-winning Forged Composite. Using chopped carbon fibres in a resin, Forged Composite allows the creation of lightweight, complex geometrical shapes beyond that possible with traditional carbon fibre composite materials, while maintaining optimum stiffness. The Performante features Forged Composite in structural components including front and rear spoiler, the engine bonnet, rear bumper and aerodynamic diffuser, contributing to the car’s weight reduction of 40 kg.
The Huracán Performante adopts Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva (ALA): ALA is also the Italian word for wing. This patented active aerodynamic system developed by Lamborghini for the Huracán Performante provides an active variation of aero load for high down force or low drag.
The system is completely integrated into the vehicle in terms of design, weight and performance. The front spoiler integrates the electric motor of the front ALA system, built in a carbon forged frame with active flaps on the top exterior surface. The rear bonnet is designed around the air ducts to the rear wing as well as the wing pylons. Lamborghini’s Piattaforma Inerziale (LPI) governs all the car’s electronic systems in ‘real time’ and is perfectly integrated with the ALA system, activating the ALA system flaps in less than 500 milliseconds to ensure the best aerodynamic set-up of the car in every driving condition.
When ALA is off, the active flaps inside the front spoiler are closed, generating the desired high downforce for high speed cornering and full brake conditions. When ALA switches to on the front flaps are opened by the front electric motor, reducing air pressure on the front spoiler and directing air flow via an inner channel and through the specially shaped underside of the car. This drastically reduces drag and optimizes conditions for maximum acceleration and top speed. In the rear of the Performante four ducts are installed below the rear bonnet. The two central ducts are always open to allow underhood ventilation and exhaust cooling, while the two external ducts are connected to the inner channels of the rear wing. The air flow through the rear wing channels is controlled by two electro-actuated flaps. The entire system is 80% lighter than a traditional hydraulic system. When ALA is off the rear flaps are closed, permitting the rear wing to act as a traditional fixed wing. Stability is enhanced in high speed cornering and full braking by creating maximum vertical downforce; 750% more than a Huracán coupé.
The Lamborghini Huracan performante is the most powerful of the V10 produced by Lamborghini to date. The Huracan Performante is distinguished in that it produces a powerful 640 hp at 8,000 rpm. The evolution of this powerful engine has evolved from the heritage of special edition engines such as the 30th Anniversary Diablo. However, by including an all-new engine fluid dynamic for intake and exhaust, the V10’s air intake system has severely improved in it’s responsiveness. Additionally, it is fitted with superb new titanium valves, allowing an increase in engine performance. To match the evolving performance, Lamborghini has equipped the Huracan Performante with a seven speed dual clutch transmission has been optimized in order to match the increased performance. To further increase the capability of the Huracan Performante, it’s dry weight is a low 1382 kg. It’s accceleration rate from 0-60 miles is a short 2.9 seconds.
This particular Huracan Performante we have on offer here is particularly exceptional example. It has been finished in a beautiful personalised Verde Artemis paint, to additionally highlight the design of the Huracan performante. There have been a number of extra-cost options included to bring out the best of what Lamborghini has to offer: A Unicolour Sportivo Interior with red stitiching, a style package, red brake callipers, floor mats with the Performante logo, an extra Branding package, Rims narvi 20′ forged lightweight black wheels and an absolutely amazing lifting system option with magneto-rheological suspension. With a DAB Radio and Apple Car Play this Huracan Performante is sure to bring versatile options of entertainment.
