The Lamborghini Huracan Performante is officially the world’s fastest production car around the Nurburgring.
With a 6:52.01 lap time, the Huracan Performante bested the Porsche 918 Spyder by nearly five seconds (6:57), proving a supercar doesn’t need fancy electric motors to set records. This isn’t the first Lamborghini to run the lap in under seven minutes, as the Aventador LP750-4 SV did it in 6:59.73. But the Huracan Performante is likely lighter and more nimble around the track, but we won’t know the full details until the car debuts at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show next week. Rumor has it the naturally-aspirated V10 engine produces around 630 horsepower, which is quite a bit less than the 740-hp Aventador SV.
So far the Italian automaker has shown off active aerodynamics on the Huracan Performante, but has kept it heavily camouflaged in the teaser videos. But Lamborghini just couldn’t wait until the car’s unveiling to share the in-car video of the record-setting lap time with Lamborghini test driver Marco Mapelli behind the wheel.
Check back with AutoGuide.com next week for full coverage of the 2017 Geneva Motor Show where we will be sure to share all the details on the new hardcore Huracan variant.

A look at 5 parts that could be making your car or truck thirsty
Millions of drivers waste fuel needlessly every day, without even realizing it. Whether by carrying around extra weight or running a vehicle that’s in need of maintenance, bad fuel mileage often creeps up slowly – swilling away your hard-earned money, and contributing to excessive emissions. If you don’t monitor your vehicle’s fuel consumption regularly, increased fuel consumption can be even harder to detect.
Is your ride running at maximum efficiency, or is it wasting your money and polluting needlessly? If you’re not sure, here’s a look at four parts that can be easily replaced and one that should be removed when not in use, as a starting point, to help ensure your car, SUV or pickup isn’t drinking more than its fair share of fuel.
