The Design of Speed

Lamborghini Huracan

When it came time to replace the best selling Gallardo, Lamborghini didn't mess around. Designer Fillippo Perini sharpened his pencil and created a look that was part Aventador and part take-no-prisoners, and the result is one of the sexiest cars on the road today. And, of course, Lamborghini gave it the guts to make it a member of Club 200 mph.

When it was introduced in 2014, the Huracan LP610-4 sported a 5.2 liter V10 sending 610 horsepower to all 4 wheels. In 2016, Lamborghini introduced a "downsized" Huracan, the LP580-2, which was a 2 wheel drive car making "only" 572 horses. The 580, however, doesn't quite make it to 200 mph, so we're not going to pay it any mind (ha!). Truthfully, who can tell the difference between 199 and 200 anyway?

In 2017, Lamborghini unleashed the Huracan LP640-4 Performante, with engine output increased to 631 horsepower, weight reduced by some 88 pounds, suspension stiffened and bodywork revised. The Performante then went out a set a new lap record at the Nurburgring, in what has seemingly become a rite of passage for new, world-beating supercars. Yes, the "little" Lambo is faster than the "big" Aventador on the racetrack. Will wonders never cease?
