Supercar manufacturer Lamborghini launched the Huracan Performante, another
variant of the Huracan model in India
for a price tag of Rs. 3.97 crore (ex-showroom Delhi). Incidentally, the entire quota of the Huracan
Performante slotted for India has almost been sold out. The Huracan
Performante was unveiled at the 2017 Geneva International Motor Show and has
made its way to Indian shores in just one month.
Without disclosing numbers, Sharad Agarwal, Head, Lamborghini India
told Motown India that the Huracan Performante quota meant for India has almost been
exhausted that he would be requesting for more cars from his Italian
also disclosed that once the Lamborghini Urus SUV is launched globally, he
expected a lot of demand to come from a country like India.
At the heart of the Huracan Perfromante is the very same 5.2L, V10
engine on the Huracan but it has been re-tuned to put out 640hp and is also
40kgs lighter than the standard Huracan. The engine has been mated to a 7-speed
dual clutch automatic transmission and this enables it to belt out 600Nm of
torque on tarmac. Lamborghini has claimed that the Huracan Perfromante can
achieve a top speed of 325kmph and goes from 0-100kmph in just 2.9 seconds. The
Huracan Performante even set a new production car lap record of 6:52:01 minutes
on the Nurburgring Nordschleife in Germany on October 2016, beating records set
earlier by cars like the Nisan GT-R Nismo, the Porsche 918 Spyder and its own
Lamborghini Aventador SV.
Agarwal said, "The Huracan Performante is the highest
performance version of Lamborghini's V10 naturally aspirated engine and is
truly sculpted by the wind." The
Lamborghini Huracan Performante uses the company's Aerodinamica Lamborghini
Attiva (ALA) which assists in stability and cornering speed, it also aids
achieving top speed and acceleration by reducing aerodynamic resistance. Lamborghini
is also offering 25 body colours, 6 choices of brake calipers, 7 alloy wheel
design options, a style package for the exterior and interior.
The Huracan Performante uses Lamborghini's permanent four wheel
drive Haldex fifth generation system, fully electronically controlled, with
rear mechanical self locking differentials. The engine produces an optimised
torque curve enabling it more than 70pc of torque at 1,000rpm. The super car
also features ventilated and cross drilled carbon ceramic discs.
