Lamborghini Huracan Performante: what we know so far
According to Lamborghini, the new Huracan Performante will be the fastest, most aggressive model in their line up. The model which is the replacement for the Gallardo Superleggera is 90 pounds lighter than the standard all-wheel drive Huracan.
The 5.2-liter V10 engine has been tuned for performance. Hence, it is expected to surpass the current 602 hp figure. Engineers have also re-worked the dual-clutch transmission.
One of the biggest changes however is the introduction of active aerodynamics. The aggressive aero profile is expected produce a tonne of downforce.
So, it’s faster than a 740 hp Aventador SV. Key to this is the lightweight, high downforce and a nimble chassis.
