Comments Off on THE LAMBORGHINI HURACÁN PERFORMANTE NAMED 2018 ROBB REPORT CAR OF THE YEAR
On October 5, 2016, a heavily disguised Lamborghini Huracán Performante broke the production-car record at Germany’s Nürburgring Nordschleife racetrack with a lap time of 6 minutes, 52.1 seconds. Boasting advances in engine output, suspension tuning, and aerodynamics, the Italian supercar surpassed the Porsche 918 Spyder’s previous record by 5 seconds. The sophisticated hardware behind Lamborghini’s high-performance spin-off was key to its record-setting run, but an equally critical component was the man behind the wheel. Marco Mapelli, a test driver for Lamborghini, coaxed the landmark performance out of the 640 hp two-seater thanks to his years of experience in formula and endurance racing.
Understanding the intricate relationship between a car’s strengths and weaknesses—and how to exploit those qualities with proper driving techniques—is key for any driver who wants to extract the most from [...]

Top Gear Review Lamborghini SSUV – Words: Charlie Turner
We get behind the wheel of Lamborghini’s 641bhp Urus on both track and trail.
Over two tonnes of super-SUV is heading towards the Italian scenery. Fast. This is bad. After a confidence-inspiring first lap around the Strada Bianca gravel circuit at the top-secret Nardò test facility in southern Italy, the combination of over-commitment and surface change sees me charging towards the bushes.
My subsequent slide into the right-hander continues for what seems like a heroic length of time but is, in reality, a couple of seconds and somehow I emerge out the other side. This is good.
Subsequent laps give me time to try and process more of what’s going on: the grip and acceleration is impressive, but the car’s poise is what grabs your attention. [...]
