Works of art are best described in their native language. Listening to Bill Gates talk about Windows or Akio Toyoda describing the Lexus LFA, it is easy to understand their passion for their creations. Much in the same way, Jay Leno invited Lamborghini‘s COO Alessandro Farmeschi to explain the finer points of the Huracan Performante.
If you are reading this, you probably know that the latest achievement from the house of the raging bull has raised the bar for aerodynamics. Until now, active surfaces have been limited to front and rear only. But the ALA system on the Huracan Performante is the first production car to incorporate cornering into the airflow. The hollow rear spoiler is able to apply downforce left or right depending on your steering angle. The system is so revolutionary that engineers were wise to patent it before the car was launched.
In a YouTube video uploaded this morning, two Italian men discuss the finer points of traction, power, design and the inevitable end of naturally aspirated engines. It’s just over a half-hour, so get your popcorn ready and prepare to be amazed. As always, stay with us for all your Lamborghini updates and more great footage from Jay Leno’s Garage.
