Lamborghini Huracan Performante — 2017
Granted all models in the Lamborghini stable are incredibly sleek and fast, but periodically the Italian automaker introduces a special variant designed for even more extreme performance. At the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, that model was the Huracan Performante. Utilizing forged carbon fiber to reduce weight by almost 90 pounds versus the standard Huracan, the Performante uses active aerodynamics to improve performance on the road and the track. The Huracan’s 5.2-liter V10 produces 640 horsepower. These changes delivered the desired effect — Lamborghini reported that the Performante completed a lap of the legendary Nurburgring in 6:52.01, making it one of the fastest production cars ever.
