IS LAMBORGHINI’S NEW HURACAN PERFORMANTE THE NEW BENCHMARK FOR FAST SPORTS CARS? 🏆🤔
A good five to 10 years ago this very question would warrant some of the loudest laughs in the room and maybe even a barrage of eggs in your face because although Lamborghini made ridiculously fast super cars, they never made any fast cars that were any good on the track. That was the speciality of the Lambos biggest rivals Porsche and Ferrari, until now.
Lamborghini’s have always been about creating the most outlandish, crazy looking bedroom posters that can go insanely fast in a straight line, like the legendary Murcielago, Reventon, Sesto Elemento and the $4.5 million batmobile-like Veneno.
Put any of these cars on a track against the likes of Porsche and Ferrari however and it was an absolutle no contest, the owner of the lambo would be going home the loser in the coolest car.
However with the release of the Aventador, Lambos philosophy has seemed to change completely with their cars now more focused on elevated performance and not just top speed or looks.
This was made abundantly clear when they sent the motoring industry into a tail spin with their controversial video of their new 631 hp V10 Performante absolutely destroying the production car lap record at the nurburging set by the fastest car Porsche has ever made the 918.
