    Re: Huracán Performante in "6.52 something" at the Ring?

    Porker:

    In the vid you can also see a fully integrated, welded rollcage on the A-pillars, how's that for a stock setup. mail

    I have nothing against the car, but these false claims are a bit ridiculous.

    The car in the video is clearly a pre-production car and I would take the record with a grain of salt.

    Personally, I truly believe that Lamborghini has hit a milestone here with the new aerodynamics tech but I think that the Huracan Performante will do above 7 minutes in the hands of Sport Auto in autumn. If it does the Nordschleife under 7:10 min., I am still going to be very impressed. Just remember that the car only gets 30 hp more and 45 kg less than the regular Huracan.

    Re: Huracán Performante in "6.52 something" at the Ring?

    Of course, that's my point. This puts a blemish on what's probably a very impressive lap. The need to be sub. 7 is bigger than the need to be truthful/correct.

    Christian, if you look at the success of turbo s and Huracan you see that your view is rather a minority view Smiley

    I ask you again: Have you driven the R8? Smiley

    Also, my personal view doesn't really count. People need to find the car which fits them and their emotional part best and we all clearly have different desires. needs and preferences. Otherwise it would be boring, just imagine all of us driving the same car. Smiley

    I still believe that the 991.2 Turbo S is boring, it just doesn't press the right buttons with me. Is it a fantastic car? No doubt about it. Porsche needs a "960", this is my personal opinion. I just outgrew the 911 (and believe me, I never wanted that) and while I still enjoy driving my 991.1 C4 GTS Cab, I wouldn't really miss it if I didn't have it anymore. Oh well, maybe only in summer when it is sunny and hot. Smiley

    I moved on, I just wish I could have moved on in a Porsche ("960"). Maybe after 2020... Smiley

    There is not Spider version of the R8 V10 plus (yet)...


    Re: Huracán Performante in "6.52 something" at the Ring?

    The V10 Plus Spyder is going to be available in June or so...when first cars appear at German dealers. 

    Drive the Coupe, just out of curiosity. The problem is that most dealer cars have winter tires on them right now...

    Definitely not the real deal. Just talked to someone who saw the car, it had a different color (I don't want to say the color because I don't know if these colors are specific to the location of the presentation). Car will be unveiled soon, the person who saw the car liked it but isn't too fond of the wing. Actually, the reason he won't get the car, which is sad (I was really looking forward to it). He is getting the new Aventador facelift instead. yes

    Smiley I was truly looking forward to his Huracan Performante because he was supposed to get an early launch edition car in April or so. Now I can only hope that my McLaren neighbor (the one with the 12C Spider) will get the Performante but apparently he hasn't decided yet if he sticks to McLaren instead (he didn't know about the 720 when he wanted to get rid of his 12C). Last time I talked to him he was torn between the Huracan and the R8 but after I told him about the Performante, he was very fascinated with the idea of getting one. Well...maybe I'm lucky (he promised to let me drive it). Smiley

    Re: Huracán Performante in "6.52 something" at the Ring?

    Not getting the performante because it has a strange looking wing while the aero package is the revolution on this car is a bit strange... To each his own...

    Many of potential buyers of such cars don't really care about the tech. Smiley

    Funny: Last time I was at my dealership, I also talked to the Lamborghini sales guy. He asked how many kilometers I drove in my R8. I told him that the car has 13000 km and I already drove 11000 or so in it. In less than a year. Then he laughed and told me that most of his customers usually drive 6000-8000 km at max (whole ownership period!!!) and then get another car. This is also one of the reasons why when new customers ask about longterm reliability, he has difficulties answering this question. Smiley

    Not much at my dealer: So far, I am the customer with most kilometers on my car. Smiley

    They put these babies in the garage and drive it only on weekends for a few kilometers or enjoy to show them off at car events. So sad.

    So you think that all OEMs made gigantic steps - only Porsche will fall behind although they were always leading in terms of track performance? Sure... Honestly, your logic is totally illogical Smiley

    Actually your logic is flowed. The presumption that Porsche's track records are guaranteed in the future because of their success in the past is logically wrong. In fact Porsche is already losing in almost all performance metrics. And I admire their focus on real world usability and substance rather then numbers. But still I remember very well 2007 when nothing could touch the 997 Turbo. And today....completely different story.

    When I drove the Huracan 580-2 it felt like a far more modern car with more potential then the 991 platform. Based on my last 4000 km with the GT3 RS whose chassis is close to the limit of the 991 I've no problem believing that the Huracan could be stretched further than the GT2 RS.


    Re: Huracán Performante in "6.52 something" at the Ring?

    Just out of curiosity, has there ever been an aventador test done on trofeos?  Because i've seen some people on here thinking about independent testing not matching claims, and i'm just not seeing it. Because even acceleration on customer cars have some pretty huge variances. If its the 700-4 n-ring time, that was done by sport auto @ 7:25 on corsa tires, while the SV did 7:15. Thats about a 10sec difference, much like the 918.  So I'm having trouble figuring out why some members on here think the SV underperforms. yes

    I do get that it hasn't beaten the LT yet, but that car is always on trofeos, and never on corsas, so its a bit unfair to expect it to be beaten by the SV with its massive disadvantage by weight.  The old 700-4 did beat the 12c at the ring, when they both had corsas.


    Re: Huracán Performante in "6.52 something" at the Ring?

    So many quotes are floating around the internet.  Several sites and even lambo's own PR account claim trofeos, but a member on LP who asked the factory and of US sales, all claim the new corsas.

    I purposely asked this question to the factory reps and head of all US Lambo sales at the event. 
    and they confirmed they were not Trofeo R's, they are the new Pirelli tire that was designed for the car and come standard. 
    I just put trofeo R's on my Huracan so I was going to do the same on the P, but now I'm keeping the stock tires

    Sorry, this is not convincing at all. In most areas the past is the best predictor for the future.


    Re: Huracán Performante in "6.52 something" at the Ring?

    Ask Lamborghini why they don't provide test cars with Trofeos for the SV. Pretty much all Huracan were tested with Trofeos. I guess Lamborghini doesn't want to use them for some reason.

    Officially, several claimed they weren't ready during the mag testing phase, but they'll be ready later.  Unfortunately, no-one has used them with trofeos. So thats one reason.  I think its because they're holding back for the Avy S-SV.

    Lamborghini? You mean Audi. Smiley Smiley

    Testdrive the R8, you'll be surprised. Porsche is lucky that the VW Group management has issued a strict "team order".

    VW makes most profits with Porsche, not Audi and certainly not the R8 or any Lamborghini model. Smiley

    Now I shut up before I say too much. Smiley

    Look at McLaren, a small manufacturer Porsche could easily buy if they wanted to (maybe they should but apparently it isn't for sale...yet). Their cars have won so much credibility in the sportscar scene, simply because McLaren worked hard and permanently developed the technology. Also, customers get the feeling they get what they pay for, sorry to say that. Same goes to Ferrari, the 488 is a real benchmark in comparison to the 991.2 Turbo S and when Lamborghini presented the Huracan in 2014, it was quite a product, even in comparison with the 991.1 Turbo S which was available at that time.

    Yes, the GT3 and GT3 RS and the 911 R are very nice products, even the GT4 but this is not enough for a manufacturer like Porsche. They make enough money, indeed but why loose customers to McLaren and Ferrari? Does it make sense?! Smiley

    Rumor indicated a base price of around 250k EUR but... Smiley Base price for the regular Huracan is 202k EUR or so as far as I remember. 

    If they really have only a very limited number of cars available, maybe the Performante is just another marketing trick to spotlight the Huracan again. Smiley Smiley Huracan facelift is due 2018 as far as I heard.

    Re: Huracán Performante in "6.52 something" at the Ring?

    Regular H is $237k in US.  I just saw some US magazine that estimated the Performante price to be $350k - I can't imagine selling many at that price...

    US gets a bad price on Italian cars (even ones that are really German)...
