Purpose built to be the fastest, the Huracán Performante reworked the concept of super sports cars and has taken the notion of performance to levels never seen before. A track orientated version of the Huracán, a prototype Performante lapped the Nürburgring Nordschleife in a time of 6:52.01 on its first attempt, which is still the third fastest time recorded by a production car.
To produce the Performante, Lamborghini completely re-engineered the Huracán in regards to its weight, engine power, chassis and materials. Heavy use of Lamborghini’s own Forged Composites® carbon fibre saved 40kg of weight whilst fettling of the engine gained an extra 30 horsepower. The most significant addition was the active aerodynamics system ALA, Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva. ALA adapted to the driving style and type of route and it could increase vertical load to assist stability and speed through curves or reduce aerodynamic resistance to assist acceleration and reaching the top speed. All of this, combined with the electronically controlled all-wheel-drive system, means the Performante could reach 62mph (100km/h) in 2.9 seconds and 124mph (200km/h) in 8.9 seconds, onto a top speed in excess of 200 mph (325km/h).
This perfect 1:8 scale model of the Lamborghini Huracán Performante has been handcrafted and finished in our workshops with the co-operation and assistance of the manufacturer regarding original finishes, materials, archive imagery and drawings. The use of original CAD and supremely accurate digital scanning of the original car has allowed us to perfectly recreate every detail at scale. Furthermore, the prototype model has undergone detailed scrutiny by the manufacturer’s engineering and design teams to ensure complete accuracy of representation.
The Lamborghini Huracán Performante is limited to only 199 editions.
