The 2017 Geneva Motor Show has long been the site where great models are first shown and this year's show is no different. Automobili Lamborghini has revealed the Huracan Perfomante, a model that boasts active aerodynamics with aero vectoring as well as makes use of lightweight technologies. In addition, the brand enhanced the powertrain while putting in an all-wheel-drive system and even a new chassis configuration.
One feature is that the body of the Huracán Performante makes use of aluminum mixed with Forged Composite. Because the Forged Composite was able to use chopped carbon fibers for the resin, it resulted in creating the complex and lightweight geometric shapes that would not have been possible if the usual carbon fiber materials were used.
The Forged Composite was used in different parts that included the spoiler in the front and the rear section, the engine bonnet, the aerodynamic diffuser, and even the bumper in the rear. The result is that the brand was able to lower the overall weight by 40 kilograms.
Performance is, of course, one of the characteristics that people look for in a Lamborghini and the Huracán Performante does not disappoint.
Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Stefano Domenicali shared that the Huracán Performante is the merging of different technological developments in order to come up with a car that can offer a perfect performance. It symbolizes the brand’s strong design language and innovation, he added. The Huracán Performante also shows a 360-degree approach in making a super sports car that clearly leads the class, continued Domenicali.
