Lamborghini Prepares Huracan Performante Launch at Geneva
|   Sunday, February 26, 2017
The year has barely started and many of us are already thinking about the Geneva Motor Show in March. Until then we could enjoy the surprises prepared by major manufacturers for the Auto Show in Detroit, but the event held in the capital of the Cantons is one of the most important of its kind in Europe. Also, a trip to Geneva is much easier for us compared with one up overseas if you're in Europe.

We learned about several novelties about launches that are prepared by major automakers for Geneva, and they are already beginning to show pictures or details about upcoming models.
As we know from the history of every event of this kind in recent years, the stands that attract most glances from car enthusiasts from all over the world are the ones that offer luxury supercars with hundreds of horsepower under the hood.

More than likely, one of the most popular stands at Geneva will be from Lamborghini. The manufacturer from Sant'Agata Bolognese is preparing a few surprises, and it would not be a first for them - Lamborghini accustomed us in recent years with one impressive model released at every edition of the Geneva Motor Show.
According to rumors that appeared during the last period, the Italians are about to launch a street model of the famous Superleggera, the circuit model of the Lamborghini Huracan. Most likely, it will be named Performante. This designation already has been patented by the manufacturer's representatives.

Although we do not know the technical details for the future Huracan Performante, most likely it will be equipped with a V12 engine with a displacement of 5.2 liters. Also, the engine will benefit from the technology of a new injection system, which will enhance its technical performance.

The specialists of the Lamborghini will bring other improvements for this new model, which is prepared for the event in Geneva. Likely, the materials used will bring about a lower final weight. It is also expected that the new Performante aerodynamic kit will be a higher one.

It remains to be seen with what performance the Huracan Performante version will surprise us with, given that the current model has some enviable technical figures. We are talking, in this case, about an achievable speed of 325 km / h, while acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h can be achieved in no less than 3.2 seconds.

"In Geneva you will see a product that will come. It's clear that during the development we have a reference track, mainly for the sporty version of our cars [and] for me Nordschleife [Nurburgring] is like a benchmark. It's where I measure everything. We succeeded in something that is much more [advanced] of what I expected. I can tell you we discovered something that is big news, it doesn't exist [yet], we invented it,"declared Maurizio Reggiani, Lamborghini's chief of research and development.

He continued "What we achieve is something unique and fantastic. And, yes, you can say that it's better than Aventador SV,", saying the Huracan scored a faster Nurburgring lap time than the previous best of 6:59.

Stefano Domenicali, CEO of Lamborghini, stated that Nurburgring is the "the church of rock and roll" for car makers.
"To be there and to be strong, it's very important. It gives the pedigree. It's like a 0-100 km/h time. It's important to give credibility to a product, to give a story," the big boss said.
