From car makers like Lamborghini, you expect every new car that comes out of their factory to be quicker than the previous one. The latest performance car from the Italian sportscar maker, the Huracan Performante, just makes the carmaker live up to this reputation. The Huracan Performante is faster than the Huracan (even the Aventador SV!) on the track, and it has already proven its mettle at the 'Ring by setting the quickest lap time for any production car. Importantly, the Huracan Performante is here in India within a month of its international showcase at the Geneva Motor Show held in March 2017, and it costs Rs 3.97 crore (ex-showroom Delhi).

The power source for the Huracan Performante is the same 5.2-litre, V10 engine that does duty on the Huracan range. It makes 639PS of max power in the Performante, which is about 29PS more than the Huracan LP 610-4 Coupe. The car accelerates from 0-100kmph in just 2.9s, but it's not just the engine that makes it quick. The Huracan Performante is light (dry weight 1382kg) and is an aerodynamic marvel, hence nimble on its feet.

All of that power is channelled via a permanent all-wheel drive setup maximising traction. Meanwhile, Lamborghini's Active Aerodynamics technology,  called - Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva (ALA) manages the air around it. It's a patented tech that varies aero load for high downforce or low drag using active flaps on the top exterior surface around the front and the back. The ALA system works in tandem with LPI (Lamborghini’s Piattaforma Inerziale), which controls the car's electronics. Various components that form a part of the complex ALA system are controlled by the LPI and modulated based on real-time driving conditions to ensure that the Huracan Performante can go as fast as possible without compromising surface grip.
