Jay Leno drives the Lamborghini Huracan Performante

It has been almost a year since the Lamborghini Huracan Performante was launched and now finally, Jay Leno gets to drive one.

Jay Leno drives a Verde Mantis Huracan Performante on the streets of Los Angeles in the latest episode of Jay Leno’s Garage. But before that, COO of Lamborghini America gives Leno a tour of the new supercar. He talks about the new developments made into the car, especially the trick aerodynamics system – Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva or ALA for short.

ALA is a new innovation in aerodynamics made by Lamborghini, where flaps in the front splitter and a hollow carbon fiber rear wing work in tandem to generate downforce. The system can even stall the rear spoiler if required.¬†Lamborghini’s chief designer, Mitja Borkert has also made special changes to both the front and rear aesthetics to aid aerodynamics.

The ALA combined with the Performante’s 5.2-liter, V10 producing 631 hp and 441 lb-ft of torque helped the car lap the Nurburgring in a blistering 6 min 52 sec, setting a new record.
