Lamborghini Huracán LP 640-4 Performante (2017) Nurburgring record
In late 2016, the Lamborghini Huracán Performante sets a new lap record for production car with a time record of 06:52.0 at the Nurburgring Nordschleife. Driven by Lamborghini test driver, Marco Mapelli, the supercar got featured on the famous Nurburgring times record.
The racecar made it to the circuit after just been unveiled during the Geneva International Motor Show. It was the latest special edition of entry level Lamborghini Huracán and it is indeed a beast on wheels. Featuring a huge trunk lid spoiler as well as active aerodynamic devices, the supercar set a new lap record at the famed Nurburgring circuit. It’s of import to mention that the Huracán beats the previous record holder to the game, shading the Porsche 918 Spyder by about 5 seconds.
What Drives the Lamborghini Huracán LP 640-4 Performante (2017) at the Nurburgring Tracks?
The performance and lap time is credited to the upgrades that have been made to the car. The supercar has received a new chassis setup, a lighter weight body, an improved exhaust, and if you care to add, an additional carbon fiber. Well, it just doesn’t stop there. It also features a refined drive-train that offers 640 hp from its V10 engine, which puts it down through a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. By the way, it also features new Pirelli tires.
However, what makes the big difference is the Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva technology that is in a class of its own. This unique technology adds significantly to both the performance and the aesthetic value of the ride. When its system goes off, the flaps at the front spoiler close and the aerodynamic design of the body begins to produce maximum down force for amazing cornering and grip.
The Huracán comes at 325 km/h at top speed and 0-100 km/h in 2.9 seconds. At 0-200 km/h, its speed is around 8.9 seconds, and its braking is 31 minutes at 100-0 km/k. The performance of the Lamborghini Huracán Performante LP 640-4(2017) 00.06:52.0 is not such a major surprise, considering that Lamborghini consistently improve and upgrade the features of its rides. The 2019 Lamborghini Huracán has significantly made a name for itself at different tracks also. And of course, the 2020 Lamborghini Huracán Evo is also not left out of the spotlight.
