At nearly twice the price of the Porsche 911 GT3 you would expect the Huracan Performante to offer an incredible driving experience, and on many levels it does. According to Lamborghini’s experts, there are four key areas in which the Performante has been developed to improve upon the standard Huracan: lightweight materials, the V10 engine, chassis and finally aerodynamics.

This means the Performante is 40kg lighter, 29bhp more powerful and 10 per cent stiffer than the standard car, helping deliver a ferociously fast and surprisingly physical driving experience. Also, the aerodynamic tweaks generate 750 per cent more downforce than the standard car can.

The highlight of the Huracan is still the naturally aspirated V10, which provides 70 per cent of its 600Nm from just 1,000rpm and keeps on pulling past 8,000rpm. The noise it makes is incredible, sounding similar to the Huracan GT3 racer.
