Comments Off on Top Gear’s Lamborghini Huracán Performante review
The new Lamborghini Huracán Performante. Or, what happens when you lock a Huracán in a cage, feed it raw meat and poke it with a pointy stick. You know the drill: like the Gallardo Superleggera before it, this is the harder, faster, stickier and more track-focused version of Lambo’s baby supercar designed to monster race tracks, but retain a whiff of usability on public roads. If Lambo had a GT3 badge, this would be wearing it.
What do we have here?
Yes, we have driven it already, but that was an early prototype wrapped in black and white sticky tape and we were limited to a few laps of the track. This is the finished article, and while we have the Autodromo Internazionale Enzo e Dino Ferrari (Lamborghini prefer to call it Imola for some reason?) at [...]

Comments Off on June Drive 2017 – Vancouver Island
Another event under our belt along with another success!
This past weekend we hit Vancouver Island hard for June Drive 2017 with 16 Lamborghini drivers and their passengers in support of Robert’s Ride. Another perfect combination of people, cars, and weather to result in a great 2017 June Drive.
We started this drive on Friday, June 2nd in Vancouver where everyone gathered and convoyed over to the Horseshoe Bay ferry terminal. There, our impressive group relaxed on the 1hr and 40min cruise over to Nanaimo on Vancouver Island where we would find excellent roads and weather conditions. Our first stop was the Vancouver Island Motorsport Circuit in Cowichan. Drivers completed laps around this short but challenging track and enjoyed lunch in the circuit’s clubhouse.
Comments Off on Lamborghini Calgary Driver Education Day @ AREA 27
Incredible, this is how we would describe this past weekend. Natural talent and pure adrenaline came forth in all of our drivers at Area 27 and we could not have asked for a better outcome.

Comments Off on Testing Lamborghini’s Newest And Fastest Supercar, The Huracán Performante, At Its Hometown Track
What do customers considering plunking down $242,000 for Lamborghini’s Huracán supercar want even more? The Italian exotic carmaker is betting on its answer: a faster, more powerful, and more expensive Lamborghini Huracán: the Huracán Performante.
Lamborghini Huracán Performante
Lamborghini revealed the $274,390 Huracán Performante, a high-performance version of the already high-performance car, at the Geneva Motor Show in March. This week, executives gave journalists the opportunity to drive it at Lamborghini’s hometown track, the Autodromo Internazionale di Imola, near the company’s Northern Italy headquarters in Sant’Agata Bolognese.
A more track-oriented version of the standard Huracán may seem redundant, but for an additional $32,000, the Performante offers improved steering, braking, and suspension that translate into an edge in performance. The Performante can zip from zero to 60 m.p.h. in 2.9 seconds instead of the comparatively sluggish 3.2 [...]
