    The part that stands out most is the 36 second decrease from the standard Huracan which is already a really fast road car. Thats a flipping massive reduction in time.

    Until Sport Auto or someone else runs the Huracan LP640 around ring this time is fabricated.

    We all saw that Aventador SV was no where close to time it ran on ring with journalists or any head to head test.

    Actually, they now sell the ring time setup to customers.

    How so? It was 10secs faster than the 700-4, with both on corsas. If SA is usually about 10secs or more off pace with a factory driver, then that about makes sense.

    Whether you agree with the time or not, the car kicks quite a bit of butt. With a NA motor and new aerodynamics it deserves a top spot on the podium.

    If the car said Ferrari would you believe it instead of Lambo?

    Personally, no. Ferrari has always had a reputation of inflating performance claims.

    Fair reply. I went to the Miami unveiling and the car and engineering is awesome. I'm not sure either.

    The base model I have is fast as hell. The car really has a lot of power. Never tracked it yet but I think it would be very fast.

    I find it funny that people are so upset that other are not taking Lambo's word as the absolute truth. Esp after all the cheating that has been going with VW.

    I would love to believe it because i love Lambos and as other have said it will just make Porsche and Ferrari try even harder if it's true but the fact is that we will most likely never know if the vid is sped up or if the car is a spec car or if they used an edited video to show the best times of each portions of the track.

    Same as we never saw the Mclaren video.

    The only way for such a time to be relevant is to get a customer car, hire a pro driver with 0 ties to VAG and hire a team to measure the laptime. Use road tire and regular gas.

    Until then all these videos are just propaganda that mean little to anyone who gives it some thought.

    I have some pretty solid evidence, this guy is using some trickery! Here: I looked at the actual 918 video, and I noticed on the real tacho, the speed is 230-235kph, while the video he uses, has it at 255kph. He's looking at the wrong tacho.

    Actually there are other cars capable of beating the 918 Spyder. The TIKT Corvette C6 ZR1 XXX did that at the Sachsering, remember? But as the track is partly owned by Porsche... However, most of you certainly know that Audi owns Lamborghini. And Audi, of course, is part of the Volkswagen Group, just as Porsche. So guess why only a Lamborghini was allowed to have a serious go at the track record...

    Just saying..

    Yes. Click on the link in the video he posted, and you'll see its not even the record lap for the 918.

    He says this in the video, nothing to report.

    But thats the problem. Between the two videos, there are certain places where the car is slower, and certain places where its faster. Just like in the lambo video (I dont like using it since the speedo is inaccurate, but whatever), there were places where it had more speed than the 918 or where it braked later. He never mentions that. He picks certain things to support his claims. He even bashes lambo fans in the intro.

    Well ya, no crap. No two laps are completely the same. There's going to variability in breaking and acceleration.

    You dont get it. What I'm saying is that, he's making it out as if the actual 918 lap is faster in all corners, as opposed to the video he used. Therefore, if the Performante is slower on the video he used, then its even worse on the actual 918 lap. Thats what I'm trying to get at. Plus, the fact that he "mentioned" the P1's claim of fast sectors he's definitely targeting lambo.

    He didn't claim that, that's an erroneous claim on your part. He clearly states that he labeled the corners in which the Huracan was faster and which ones the 918 was faster and which ones are even. He also says the 918 is just faster more often. What video exactly are you watching?

    Im watching the "Fake? lamborghini huracan performante at the nurburgring."
    The actual lap time video of the performante.
    The actual lap of the 918, but catching glimpses of the speed when its possible.
    He also mentions that the 6:57 time could be faster @ around 2:25-2:49 in his video

    First, He's getting the original 7:28 Huracan time from Sport Auto, NOT Lambo's actual Huracan time. Second, he's way off on what Lambo has won in motorsports.

    He's getting his 918 speeds from the 7:00 lap and assuming that those times are equal or faster during the actual lap time. There are cases where thats true, and there are cases where its slower. He could have just got the actual video and used the speed that was available. Then he mentions shadows on trees and the sun's angle? That could easily be camera position. Then he mentions the gantry speed of the 918 @ 255kph, and Huracan @ 244. The actual video was 918 @237-240kph. Then the T15(?) sign was around 285kph in the 918, and the Huracan was around 290kph, 280 if you do the speedo error or whatever, but maxed out around 300kph.

    So what do you think?

    considering the aero, power and newer tech for the AWD I would say fully believable. The cornering speeds are amazing and he is not having to saw at the wheel which means the software programming of the diffs and suspension are incredible.

    I can't make anything out of note. But dude I don't analyze YouTube videos we've read enough of each other's posts for you to know that about me. If Lambo says they did it, I'll believe it. After all, I can actually get a Huracan P. 918's are silly prices. And I'm happy the game has been moved forward. Who knows though, maybe Porsche will bring a production 918 to the ring and run a 6:51 lol. Also, im pretty sure the SCG will run 6:4x so Lambos crown will be short lived.
