Chris Harris Takes On The New Lamborghini Huracan Performante

By December 23, 2017General

It took a while before Top Gear’s Chris Harris got his hands on the new Lamborghini Huracan Performante, but the review is finally here.

Thus, the following video shows the automotive journalist and TV host drive the Italian supercar really fast on the Knockhill track.

Lamborghini have really done some serious work on the Performante, with clever aerodynamics, a giant rear wing, tuned four-wheel drive, recalibrated steering, grippy tires made by Pirelli and an extra 30PS (30hp) and 40Nm (30lb-ft) of torque produced by the 5.2-liter naturally aspirated V10, which resulted in it braking the Nurburgring lap record by posting an unbelievable sub-7min time, beating the Porsche 918 Spyder and even Lambo’s own Aventador SV.

These noticeable changes have significantly transformed the Huracan Performante over its LP610-4 sibling, turning it into a proper driver’s car, according to Chris Harris, who states that this is, quite probably, the best car Lamborghini makes right now.

Nevertheless, as mega as it may be, it’s not perfect, as you can see in the video that follows after the jump.
