With a name like Huracan Performante, this 2018 Lamborghini has a lot to live up to. Well, this luxury sports vehicle lives up to its hype, trust us. Fast, striking and record-breaking, the 2018 Lamborghini Huracan Performante is impressive, to say the least.
Before the vehicle was even unveiled, the 2018 Huracan Performante made headlines for its record-breaking performance on the Nurburgring track. The Huracan Performante completed a lap in 6:52:01, beating the previous record holder (the Porsche 918 Spyder) by a full five seconds. Now that’s fast. This 2018 Lamborghini model can also go from zero to 62 mph in 2.9 seconds, according to Car and Driver.
In addition to its unbelievable speed, the 2018 Lamborghini Huracan Performante is built with remarkable handling features. Included in these features are rear-wheel-drive, careful chassis tuning and appealing aerodynamics. You can tell this 2018 Lamborghini is fast just by looking at it. When you take a look under the hood of the Huracan Performante, you will find a 5.2-liter V10 engine capable of 631 horsepower at 8,000 rpm and 443 lb-ft of torque at 6,500 rpm. These impressively large numbers back up the acclaimed speed and performance of this vehicle.
As for the construction of the 2018 Huracan Performante, “Lamborghini says it used knowledge from its Super Trofeo motorsports program to improve engine airflow efficiency, adopting new titanium intake valves with higher lift and new exhaust pipes that mount higher and more toward the center of the card,” Car and Driver explains. “The bronze finish on the intake manifold, visible through the rear glass, is meant as a nod to previous special-edition engines like that on the Diablo 30th Anniversary, while the engine cover partially done in exposed carbon fiber does the same to the lightweight philosophy that guided Performante development.” No wonder Lamborghini is a top name in the sports cars industry.
