The Lamborghini Company is one of the best companies in the world when it comes to supercars and they have a lot of remarkable models. Now, all the fans of Lambo have so many reasons for satisfaction, because the Company released the newly 2018 Lamborghini Huracan Performante at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. The forthcoming model will be very modernistic and it will have set of new featherlight technologies as well as active aerodynamics with the aero vectoring and also improved powertrain, a new set-up of chassis, and all-wheel-drive system. This model, back on 5 October 2016 set a new production car lap record of 6:52.01 min, of course at the Nürburgring track. Chief Executive Officer and Lamborghini Chairman, Stefano Domenicali said: “the approaching 2018 Huracan will have the convergence of technological improvements in order to produce a vehicle with perfect performance”.
2018 Lamborghini Huracan Performante Exterior design
The exterior design of this model will be just like the exterior design of every Lamborghini – sporty and attractive, one word it’s phenomenal. Maybe these words are not enough for a description of the Huracan appearance. First of all, this model will be based on the hybrid aluminum and carbon fiber frame. That means that 2018 Huracan Performante will be constructed with high usage of aluminum materials and with some carbon fiber parts. What does that mean? That certainly means that the coming model will provide quite perfect performance.
Thanks to the Forged Composite in front spoiler, rear spoiler, the engine bonnet, as well as in the aerodynamic diffuser, it will reduce its weight for almost 40 kg. This model will also feature Aerodynamic Lamborghini Attiva (ALA system). This ALA system will provide an active change of an aero load for the low drag and high downforce. This system will be also integrated with the new Italian supercar, which makes great changes in vehicle terms design, performance, and weight. The movable front spoiler will have an electric motor that will be built in the carbon frame. When it comes to some specific details from the outside, this model will have already recognizable DNA of a true Lamborghini. The design will be simply phenomenal, and we can anticipate pure lines.
The front side is also recognizable, and here we can expect sophisticated appearance and razor-blade sharp. The engine bonnet will have Forged Composite lightweight construction and the air vents will be almost certainly integrated into the engine bonnet in order to provide a flow of air to the back wing inner ducts. Furthermore, this supercar will provide 20″ Narvi forged rims that will be specially designed for this vehicle. Also, we can expect Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires as well as a “blink of eye” response braking system that will provide ultra fast and fast braking. Off course the latest carbon ceramic discs are provided. This model has six-piston brake calipers up front and four-piston calipers back.
The interior design of the approaching new Huracan Performante 2018 will look very sporty, but importantly, everything inside will be constructed in that way to improve the weight of this model, or it is better to say, to reduce the total weight of the vehicle. Also, the interior will have an aerodynamic purpose. Some parts of the interior, including door handles, the middle console, gas paddles, air vents will be constructed from Forged Composite. Despite the fact that this is the primarily sporty model, we can expect the high dose of comfort. There is going to be a lot of premium materials inside. For example, we can anticipate dark colored Alcantara. It will be used for the sports seats.

When you are inside, you will be completely in touch with the aerodynamics activities. The good thing is that you will be in touch with the active aerodynamics not only from the car’s performance but also from the special ALA graphic located on the dashboard. This model will also have a new digital cockpit that will be configurable depending on drive mode that you choose. There will be Strada, Sport or Corsa driving modes. The recently developed mode will provide a lot of new high-tech systems, and the great news is that we can expect Apple CarPlay and iPhone apps.
Lamborghini Huracan Performante 2018 Engine and Performance
The resulting model will be very powerful under the hood, but as we know, that is normal for all Lamborghini models. We can expect improved naturally aspirated Huracan engine. This 5.2-liter engine will be the most powerful V10 engine produced by Lambo. The max power output of this extraordinary engine will be 640 horsepower at 8,000 rpm as well as 600 lb-ft of torque at 6,500 rpm. Also, it provides some new sophisticated technologies. The exhaust system will be modified in order to achieve weight reduction as well as less back pressure.
The pipes will be located a little bit higher and more to the center position. Definitely, this model will deliver more aggressive sound. The engine will be mated to a seven-speed dual clutch transmission from Lamborghini that will receive some slight updates. The dry weight of this model will be only 1,382 kg or 3,047 pounds. When it comes to acceleration, we can expect run from 0-100 km/h in just 2.9 seconds. Run from 0-200 km/h will be 8.9 seconds. This model will provide braking distance from 100-0 km/h in 31 m.
Price and Release date
The release date of the forthcoming 2018 Lamborghini Huracan Performante will be most likely by the end of this, or in the first three months of 2017. When it comes to prices, we don’t have official information about that at this moment. However, some sources claim that price will start from $275,000 / $257,000 euros, without tax and delivery.
