Lamborghini huracan performante, which was shown off at 2017 Geneva Motor Show, has been launched in India with a starting price tag of ₹ 3.97 crore. Huracan Performante will be the third car of Lamborghini to launch in India after the Huracan RWD Spyder and the Aventador S.
The new Lamborghini Huracan Performante is Lamborghini’s most powerful V10 engine car till date and it is based on the Huracan Super Trofeo race car. The new Lamborghini Huracan Performante is lashed with sporty cosmetic enhancement and many race-spec features which make the Huracan Performante the most powerful car of Lamborghini.
Lamborghini used the proprietary forged composite carbon fibre in manufacturing front bumper, rear spoiler, engine cover, rear bumper, diffuser and other interior parts to make Huracan Performante 40 kg lighter than the standard Huracan. Because of this light weight the new Huracan Performante can accelerate from 0-100 kmph in just 2.9 seconds, before hitting a top speed of 325 kmph.
The new Lamborghini Huracan Performante is powered by 5.2 litre V10 engine which is used in standard Huracan. But Lamborghini has made some update in the engine which includes titanium valves, revised intake and lighter exhaust which makes the car a beast. Because of this updates, the engine now produces 630 bhp and develops 600 Nm of peak torque. The motor comes matted with a 7-speed dual clutch transmission.
The exterior design of the Huracan Performante is almost same as the standard Huracan with a little update at the rear with the new high-mounted spoiler, new rear grille and the dual exhaust.
Lamborghini Huracan Performate also has the company’s new active aerodynamic tech named as “The Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva”. This tech helps the cars to switch between maximum downforce and low drag setups by adjusting flaps at the front and rear. Stability is enhanced in high speed cornering and full braking by creating maximum vertical downforce; 750% more than a Huracan coupe.
The interior of the Lamborghini Huracan Performante has also been manufactured using carbon fiber which includes AC vents, paddles, door handles and centre console. There is also a new dashboard showing the status of the active aero system.
