Late last week, we go an early look at Lamborghini’s latest track monster: the Huracán Perfromante. Lamborghini bragged that the supercar managed to carve its way around Germany’s famed Nürburgring Nordschleife in a record 6 minutes and 52.01 seconds, making it 7 seconds faster than the previous record holder: the hybrid Porsche 918 Spyder. Although we got a glimpse at the Huracán Perfromante on video, it was disguised with camouflage which prevented us to seeing how it truly looks in the metal. Now that the Geneva Auto Show is kicking off, we’re finally getting our first real look at the car and it’s undeniably gorgeous (as you might expect). There’s no way that you would mistake the Huracán... Read more...
