Default Lamborghini Doesn’t Need Electrification to Set Records



Quote:
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.

I dont know if it is right to say or perhaps the audio is weird on the video, but it sounded like there was even more in that lap for the taking..

There is a reason that the Nurburgring was chosen for this test. The Huracan has an amazing gearbox which can be tweaked accordingly to make it super fast round a track with many corners.

Good cause I can't stand all this electrification that everyone seems to change their models to.
