On this episode of Ignition presented by Tire Rack, Jonny Lieberman travels to Italy’s famed Imola race circuit to test out the latest and perhaps greatest raging bull yet from Lamborghini. Initially, the Performante—that’s Italian for “Performance”— was going to be known as simply the Huracán Superleggera—that’s Italian for “really light.” While the Performante is lighter than your run-of-the-mill Huracán, it’s much more than that. Lamborghini had to go with a different name. Power is up, the transmission shifts quicker, the all-wheel-drive system and ESC systems have been improved, the ABS system is much better, it’s stiffer, the tires are specific to the car, and the new exhaust system is much, much louder. But every automaker does that. No, what makes the Performante special is its secret weapon! That secret weapon allowed the Performante to absolutely shatter the production car lap record at the Nürburgring Nordschleife by 4.99 seconds. What’s the secret weapon, and just how good is the Performante? Watch and find out!

      Shawn Cheng farthest thing from it lol. It’s fully italian, dampening system and smart aero too.
      If anything the next R8 is going to be mish mash of Huracan ideas and parts.

      Lamborghini: *makes car with patented active aero system*
      Porsche: *makes 911 with 60 more horsepower and a wing, beats Performante's record by 5 seconds*

      I was lucky enough to race the Huracan  2WD 580 in Vegas and that was amazing.  This Performante is now my dream car.  Well done Lambo and an awesome review to boot.
