Lamborghini Huracan Performante by Schuyler

Ferruccio Lamborghini started Lambo in 1963, the cause being that Ferruccio’s Ferrari had terrible tires, so he complained to Enzo Ferrari himself. Enzo just laughed, and turned him down. Ferruccio became enraged, so he decided to upgrade his company from tractors to sports cars and supercars. His first car was the 350 GT, and so on. The Huracan Performante went into production in 2017, and it set a new world record for the fastest Nürburgring lap time of 6:52:01. In doing so, it beat the long-reining Porsche 918 Spyder by about five seconds. The specs are 0-60mph (0-100kph) in 2.5 seconds, ¼ mile in 10.4 secs@135mph (217kph), top speed of 212 mph (341 kph), torque is 600 Nm (443 lbs/foot)@6,500rpm. The engine size is 640ps (471 Kw) and 641hp@8,000rpm. The Huracán has electronically controlled all-wheel drive, which aims to increase the traction on various surfaces and the overall performance of the car. The car has a 7-speed dual clutch transmission, Lamborghini’s new ‘Doppia Frizione’ (Dual Clutch) gearbox. The transmission performs differently depending on the mode the driver has selected. The Huracán will only be available with an automatic transmission; a manual will not be offered. The Huracán also has a magnetically controlled suspension system. It utilises magnetorheological dampers to very quickly change how the suspension acts, ensuring performance as well as usability. The Huracan has various components in common with the next generation Audi R8. This is due to both of the cars’ utilization of Volkswagen Group sportscar technology. Although it is not my favorite, it is still pretty cool. Click for more images. Click for video. (scroll down)  Comment below what car I should do next, and I will get back to you.
