When you think of Lamborghini you picture flamboyance, daring styling and futuristic poster-car design. The Italian manufacturer has always had the dream supercar aesthetics perfected, but when it came to performance on a track, they were often outperformed by their fellow Italian rivals Ferrari. The cars may have always looked like a million dollars but the build quality, reliability and driving experience always felt a little short of that.
Since being taken over by Audi towards the turn of the century, the manufacturer began to reign in the excess styling and demanding driving requirement and started to produce cars that were as good to drive as they were to look at. When it started with the Murcielago and Gallardo, many thought the sensible side of German engineering had diluted the brands flamboyance too much, focusing on build quality and driving dynamics yet reigning in the styling too far. Their concerns were relieved when the Aventador and Huracan were unveiled, the futuristic styling had returned and things were looking more promising.
The angular design language they had introduced invoked a similar type of thinking to that of the legendary Countach of the 1970's and 80’s, whilst adorning a silhouette that wasn’t too far removed from the iconic Diablo of the 90’s. All the time the underlying engineering and on track performance were experiencing a major overhaul. The introduction of four wheel drive from their quattro motorsport heritage, combined with over a decade of dominance at endurance racing, was proving to be the foundation for cars that at last were starting to perform as good as they look.
The pinnacle of proving that the performance had caught up with their iconic exotic styling came in the form of the Lamborghini Huracan Performante. The design was even more aggressive with carbon fibre front and rear bumpers and side skirts with more intakes, flicks and splitters than ever before. These combined with an exposed forged composite rear spoiler, that on first appearances looks taller than the roofline, was a return to the days of the excessive styling Lamborghini is famed for. Yet despite the looks it was the performance that was the greatest improvement for the Huracan. Using their patented system of active aerodynamics, or ALA, the Performante set the lap record at the Nurburgring Nordschleife for production cars, an almost unheard-of concept to not only Lamborghini fans of old, but mostly their rivals at Ferrari and Porsche.
Our Lamborghini Huracan Performante Spider shares that same track focused ethos and bedroom poster car design, yet with a convertible roof lets in the astonishing sound of that 5.2 V10 engine. Finished in stunning Blue Nethuns matt paint, an option that costs over £13k, with full Nero Cosmus Performante Alcantara interior with Bianco Leda contrast stitching. With an extensive options list that includes a front lifting system and Magneto-rheological suspension, style pack with gloss black exterior accents, branding pack with Lamborghini emblems on the dashboard and stitched to headrests, navigation system with CarPlay and full PPF coverage. This is additional to the ‘standard’ features of Carbon Ceramic brakes, carbon fibre lightweight seats and forged composite interior trim.
