Default Spyshots: 2016 Lamborghini Huracán Superleggera. Update: Called the 'Performante'

Though the Huracan is still young its time for it to improve considering the recently launched Ferrari 488 & the latest Audi R8.

The test mule clearly has two extra tailpipes out back, behind some metal mesh camouflage

Like the previous SV or Superleggera models we expect not more than a 10-15 HP jump and a bit of weight loss (100 odd kgs)

Lets wait & watch

^ Currently interiors of this mule reveal no change, but the production version of this SV / Superleggera will be different.

Default Is this the Lamborghini Huracan SV?

Could this be the Lambo Huracan Super Veloce? What do you think BHPians?

Quote:
If the idea of a lighter, more powerful and more focused Lamborghini Huracán appeals to you, then you might just be in luck.

Our people caught Lamborghini engineers driving what we believe could be a test mule for the Huracán Super Veloce, or SV for short, with new vents cut out at the back with what look like tailpipes peeping through a mesh grille. Whether they are real pipes or something else, is unknown.

The car also seems to be fitted with slightly larger brakes than the regular Huracan.

It only makes sense that Lamborghini will follow the same recipe as for the Aventador LP750-4 SV reducing the Huracan's weight using carbon fiber and aluminum, optimizing the car's aerodynamics through a more aggressive body kit, giving the mid-mounted 5.2-liter V10 engine that produces 602hp (610PS) in the standard model a bit more power and improving the chassis.

Of course, the formula would also include a limited production number with a matching price tag…

Pardon my ignorance, but isn't SV a tag reserved for Lamborghini's V12's? Don't bumped up V10's go by the Superleggera moniker?

Other than the extra exhaust outlets, the car looks like a stock Huracan that too without any kind of camo, so maybe they are testing the car with a new exhaust system! Or maybe that's not a Lamborghini test mule at all, quite possible an aftermarket parts manufacturer is testing one of its products for the Huracan!

Also, AFAIK SV is supposed to be the final production version of any Lamborghini, so its too early for an SV, not sure if its restricted to Lamborghini V12s, but yes its definitely time for a Superleggera or at least a Limited Edition Huracan!

Edit: I have a feeling they are coming up with a street legal version of the Huracan Super Trofeo, like the earlier Gallardo STS!

Motortrend drives the HURACÁN PERFORMANTE.

Looks awfully similar to the car we were discussing in this thread.

Assume that final numbers will be between 625 and 640 hp and 453 lb-ft of torque. They’re still working out the details. The seven-speed dual-clutch transmission has also been re-optimized for crisper, smarter shifts. The last time we tested a Huracán, it hit 60 mph in 2.8 seconds. Expect the Performante to be quicker.

Weight is down by about 90 pounds, thanks in part to that new exhaust system, which alone reduces fat by nearly 25 pounds.
Quote:
The Magnetorheological shocks have been retuned to deal with the fast-acting active aero gear and as a result are much stiffer. The springs and anti-roll bars are retuned to provide 10 percent more vertical stiffness and 15 percent more roll stiffness. All the bushings are about 50 percent stiffer to cope with the stickier tires. The adjustable steering has been revamped, though most of the changes are in Corsa (track) mode. The Performante also gets newly developed special-application high-performance Pirelli P Zero Corsas.
Quote:
The Huracán Performante? Lambo ain’t saying no matter how many times I ask (Reggiani just smiles at me), but I heard mutterings of “six-fifty-two-something-something.” That would shatter the Porsche’s record. We’ll find out for sure when Lamborghini pulls the wraps off the Performante in March at the Geneva International Motor Show.

Its official, Lamborghini Performante is the new "King of the Ring"

Top Gear reports:


Quote:
the new Huracán Performante – and gone faster. 6m 52.01s, which is a new production car lap record of the Nordschleife.

Quote:
Performante is the go-faster Huracán that uses a new style of forged carbon fibre, as well as other weight-saving measures, to deliver a 40kg reduction over the standard Huracán while the naturally aspirated V10 has undergone substantial development so that it now delivers the highest specific engine power of any in its class.

There’s also an all-new exhaust system (which exits higher up the rear of the car) that reduces back pressure and boosts “emotional sound” and the seven-speed dual-clutch transmission has been “re-optimised” for faster shifts; and an all-new P Zero Corsa has been developed with Pirelli specifically for the car.

There’s a huge rear wing and more aggressive front splitter – the usual performance bolt-ons. But the way these two elements combine to handle and optimise the air flow is where the magic, and that secret to the Nürburgring lap time lies.

The Performante is the first Lambo to feature what the company is calling ALA – Aerodynamica Lamborghini Attiva. Or, to put it in a less exciting accent: active aero.
Motortrend gives more details at ALA – Aerodynamica Lamborghini Attiva

Quote:
Here’s how it works: Both the front splitter and rear spoiler have electronic flaps that can open and close individually or in tandem depending on the situation. This allows the car to either increase or decrease drag, helping the car either brake harder or gain straight-line speed faster. This is similar to the active aero systems used on other top-shelf supercars like McLaren’s P1 and 650S.

Where the Huracán Performante differs is that ALA can aero-vector the car. Instead of brake-vectoring, which essentially brakes the inside wheel to help a car turn in faster, aero-vectoring uses the car’s down force and aerodynamics to help turn the car in faster through the front splitter’s flaps opening and closing the hollow forged-carbon wing.
Video of the record lap below.


Mods: Time to rename the thread with the correct model name.
