The record of the Lamborghini obviously sends a lot of ink since the Italian has paid the scalp (5 seconds faster) of the 918 Spyder otherwise more powerful (887 ch combined).
On the paper, Lambo announces that the Performance can cover the 0-100 km / h in 2.9 s or 0.3 s faster than the “traditional” Huracan because with 1382 kg, the weight / power ratio falls to 2 , 16 kg / ch. Lamborghini says that the engine has been optimized especially for the torque curve where 70% of the resources would be available under … 1000 rpm! But the manufacturer does not yet detail the differences. The dual-clutch and seven-speed automatic transmission would also have been optimized.
The Huracan Performante coupe receives the atmospheric V10 developing 640 hp at 8,000 rpm for a maximum torque of 600 Nm at 6,500 rpm, 70% of which is available from 1,000 rpm. The whole is transmitted to the four wheels via a box with double-clutch 7-speed. Thus, with a weight of 1,382 kg on the scale, the car has a weight / power ratio of 2.16 kg / hp, which allows it to go from 0 to 100 km / h in 2.9 seconds. The 200 km / h is crossed in 8.9 seconds and the machine reaches a top speed of 325 km / h.
Thanks to three modes of driving (Strada, Sport and Corsa), the car can be both daily and on the track. To stop, Huracán Performante has disc brakes in ceramic carbon allowing it to go from 100 km / h to 0 in 31 m.
