The Lamborghini Huracan Performante Shatters Nurburgring Record
Its official launch is not scheduled to happen until later this month, but the Lamborghini Huracan Performante is already making a name for itself. The upcoming vehicle has already broken the Nurburging record and is expected to keep its competition far behind. It will officially debut at the Geneva motor show in a few weeks.
As noted by International Business Times, the Lamborghini Huracan Performante broke the previous Nurburging record by as much as five seconds. It finished the track in just six minutes and 52 seconds. The previous record was held by the Porsche 918 Spyder, which finished the track at six minutes and 57 seconds in 2016.
As News Atlas has reported, the Huracan Performante was under the responsibility of driver Marco Mapelli, who definitely delivered on his task. Lamborghini had just fifteen minutes to finish its lap around the historic German racetrack after it was closed to all other manufacturers using the track. Its six minutes on the road proved that the company was serious about its earlierclaims. That is, that it would move beyond its reputation of producing cars that are not beautiful to look at, but without an actual racing pedigree.
The official specs of the motor unit are still unknown, but Lamborghini did give an idea about what makes the Huracan Performante such a spectacularly fast vehicle in an earlier statement. The company credited the speed to engine upgrades, which includes an all-wheel-drive system and aero package, as well as Pirelli Trofeo R tires. There is definitely more power to the model as well, but the specifics of which have not been released.
More details on the Lamborghini Huracan Performante will be announced at the Geneva Motor Show, which will run from March 9 to March 19. Other European luxury car companies are expected to be in attendance too, including Ferrari, McLaren and Paganti. It is expected to be an amazing show of the best and most beautiful automobiles.
