Lamborghini Huracan Performante Review
Once behind the wheel, you instantly realize the advancements unleashed on this model. A proper Lamborghini Huracan Performante Review should include highway runs and tight corners. It is there you will discover the Lamborghini Huracan Performante horsepower maxes out at 631 horsepower. With 443 lb-ft of torque across a wide RPM range, the wide tires scream at their limits.
Additionally, corners and are where you will find at that the Huracan Performante’s downforce is truly exceptional and groundbreaking. Active aerodynamics in the front and rear are computer-controlled through a system called ALA 2.0 (Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva). This patented system keeps the car planted in the corners, and it lowers drag on high-speed straight runs. Extensive use of forged composite materials also makes the Lamborghini Huracan Performante 88 lbs lighter than its predecessor. With a lighter weight and greater downforce, the Huracan Performante is a star in the Huracan’s lineage.

Lamborghini Huracan Performante Engine
While every automaker is going to small engines with giant turbos, the Lamborghini Huracan Performante engine is a naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V10. For a 90-degree V10 to achieve the perfect balance, the easiest solution would be a split-pin crank.
Lamborghini chose a traditional crank and a unique firing order. This was accomplished by having five cylinders fired at 90 degrees, and the others at 54 degrees. Combined with dual cam-driven fuel pumps, it allows for direct injection and a redline of 8,500 rpm. Maximum torque of 443 lb-ft happens at 6,500 rpm, and it makes for an exhilarating ride even when driving out of a corner.
Lamborghini Huracan Performante Transmission
Because manual transmissions are on their way out, engineers are busy creating the ultimate automatic transmissions possible. While other supercars offer a dual-clutch automatic, Lamborghini decided to raise the bar. The Lamborghini Huracan Performante has two distinct final drive gears.
First, fourth, and fifth send power to all three differentials using a 4.89 ratio, while 2nd, 3rd, 6th, and 7th use a 3.94 ratio. This provides immense power for launching, and it also eliminates much of the mechanical disadvantage before going into overdrive. A brilliant solution to allow a naturally aspirated car, where torque and horsepower peaks are far apart on the tachometer. It does all of this at the expense of the Huracan Performante MPG, as it is rated at 13 city and 18 on the highway. That being said, a supercar that looks this great deserves all of the power it can handle.
Lamborghini Huracan Performante Interior
Italians of the past didn’t give much credence to creature comforts. You might think the Lamborghini Huracan Performante would be a spartan experience, but it is quite the opposite. The seats are quite plush and there is plenty of microfibers to be found, and it also features better visibility than many of the normal cars you’d find on the road today.
Along with new seats, the instrument cluster has gone completely digital. Not only does this allow the instrument cluster to show an amazing amount of information, it’s layout and visibility causes much less eye strain and fatigue at night.
Subtle design touches like forged carbon A/C vents and a symmetrical center console are also pleasing to the eye. Below the wheel, the pedal position is ideal for an exciting drive. For the moments when you don’t want to hear the amazing sound of the Huracan Performante’s engine, the audio system is worthy of a theatre. The backup camera has a parabolic lens, and it will alert you to cross traffic and obstacles.
Lamborghini Huracan Performante Brakes
All good things must come to an end, and that is why fast cars need incredible stopping power. Carbon-ceramic rotors are an industry standard, so the Lamborghini Huracan Performante brakes scaled the technology to new levels.
Behind the front wheels are six-piston monoblock calipers gripping a rotor that is 14.9″ wide and 1.5″ wide. The rear units have 4 pistons with 14″x1.5″ rotors. The stability system also invokes them to regain control during a spin. Through these brakes, Lamborghini has ensured that drivers will have complete control over their speed both on and off of the track. If you want to race, cast iron rotors are available from Lamborghini Squadra Corse.
Aside from being the first car to use their patented ALA 2.0 system, the Lamborghini Huracan Performante has very appealing attributes. The coupe is 88 lbs lighter than its predecessor, and the convertible top will operate up to 30 mph. Rolling on 20″ forged wheels, the tires are 245mm front and 305mm on the rear. The suspension firmness was increased by 10 percent using a combination of new springs and recalibrated magnetic shocks. With decent cargo space under the hood, there is not a reason this car can’t be daily driven.
