The Lamborghini Huracan Performante, revealed at the Geneva motor show this year, is slated to be launched in India on April 7th, 2017.
It heads the Huracan line-up and is currently the most powerful iteration of the mid-engined Italian supercar. The 5.2-litre V10 now develops 640hp and 600Nm of torque – 30hp and 40Nm more than the standard AWD coupe – and comes with a modified seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox paired with a Haldex permanent four-wheel-drive system. The design style follows that of the Lamborghini Super Trofeo racer but with refined bumpers at the front and a large rear wing to help improve downforce. The car is carried by 20-inch alloy wheels wrapped in specially developed Pirelli P Zero Corsa tyres.
Perhaps the most interesting aspect of the car is the material it’s built using, patented by Lamborghini. Its quality allows it to be moulded into complex, one-piece shapes. Use of this material has also allowed the company to pay more attention to active aerodynamic elements such as the flaps on the rear wing and inside the front spoiler. The flaps are electrically actuated to help save weight.
