    The next Superleggera called the Huracan LP640 Performante is rumored to be introduced at the Geneva 2017 show with US deliveries starting in late Summer. It is confirmed to have the beaten the 918's lap record at the Nurburgring Nordschleife and is now the fastest production car on the Ring!

    According to dealership sources, it will have carbon composite front/rear spoilers with active flaps that give it significantly more down force than a regular Huracan, 4 wheel steering, Apple car play, built-in telemetry system, and an exhaust like a super Trofeo car!

    The Performante is the open top version of the Superleggera, which will almost certainly be introduced first.

    I doubt it will receive the LP640 designation as it conflicts with the LP640-4 Murcielago.

    We already had some of these facts in the hypercar vs debate, but its nice to have an actual thread for it.

    7 times more downforce than the base Huracan.

    Wow! Have to give lamborghini credit if they have beaten the 918 with a naturally aspirated car at that price point.

    Looks like Lambo went "All-In".

    The ALA aero system is just incredible! I've got one on order and pretty much spec'd out.

    The final place to post this. from mclife:

    The bottom line is, whatever magic aero Lambo has done seems to work. I was told by the Lambo rep that the Performante repeatedly did 6:53 lap times on the ring just before nabbing the 6:52 time. Lambo had debated on just using the 6:53 time since it was consistent, but then decided that records are records and don't need to be averaged. He also said the SV actually did one high 6:57 time but Lambo felt it was not the official time since it was never repeated.

    This is not just a wing and call it a day. The air actually gets diverted by the winglets and send it up through the wing channel and out through the smooth hollow wing (which is why forged carbon had to be used, smooth inside as well as outside). No one has ever attempted such a feat in a production car before. If you look at the back side, the entire rear bumper is a downforce wing. A motor in the front air dam also moves a flap (I was told this all occurs in milliseconds). A lot more than just the rear wing are at work here. I think from a technological aero standpoint, Lambo has placed itself ahead of the game. I give credit where it is due.
