After a few minutes behind the wheel, you know the Huracan is destined for greatness. As the successor to the Gallardo, it has even cast a shadow on the abilities of the Aventador. That’s because the Huracan Performante is the fastest production car for sale. It beat the Porsche 918 Spyder’s Nurburgring lap time by almost 5 seconds thanks to innovative aerodynamics. We don’t know how Audi & Lamborghini always find more power in their naturally aspirated 5.2 liter V10, and we’ll cover its evolution later this week. The 2003 Gallardo arrived with a 5.0 liter V10 rated at 493 hp and 376 lb-ft of torque. The 2018 Huracan Performante has 631 hp and 443 lb-ft of torque without any turbos or a supercharger.

The Audi R8 and the Lamborghini Huracan are fraternal twins, each one is always trying to outperform the other. Both teams learn from each other, but this time the Italians played their cards close to the chest. Developing and patenting a new way to control downforce, the patented ALA system uses active air ducts front and rear to keep it glued to the track. The front system constantly divides air between going up through the cooling system or down to the belly pan. On the rear is a big spoiler of forged carbon. It is hollow and features vents under the leading edge. High-pressure air that is sucked into the quarter panels is shot out of the spoiler to kill the low-pressure turbulence that forms behind every car. Like drafting on a superspeedway, it allows the Performante to cut a cleaner path through the air. If you think you can handle it, we have a nice selection of Huracan for sale, so stay with us for all your Lamborghini updates.
