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

    Saw this beauty at "my" Lambo dealer (my R8 is in the workshop for two minor issues with ESP and brake pads) and for the very first time in my life, I refused an offered(!) test drive, which later on I regretted.

    Why did I refuse? I love this car so much, I was afraid that after a test-drive, I would want one and I know my (car) urges, I can barely resist them. My wife should thank me. indecision

    Interesting information: The Performante has now a 6 months order stop(!) at my Lambo dealer, car itself is sold out for over a year now.

    The car itself looks much better in real life, even that enormous wing which on photos doesn't always look good.

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

    I fully agree but money doesn't grow on trees... surprise

    Maybe I should start a Rennteam funding request... indecision

    Just last week I shook the hand of a billionaire, maybe I should have asked him? Just kidding...rich people are rich because they know how to handle money, they don't give it away for free. Unfortunately I am not female, young and beautiful, so no chance on that particular side either. broken heart 

    Now I have to put my faith in Tim Cook. If the iPhone 8 amazes people and Apple shares go up by 100% , I could even buy a Performante.

    Or maybe Aliens land in my garden and they piss gold, so I could sell their excrements. indecision

    As you can see...I am desperate to get the Performante but no chance. yes

    Green with gold in the engine? Dumb combination. They should offer a plenum color choice.

    it's bronze, not gold :)

    best to get the bronze forged wheels which match the engine

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

    I do not like the bronze  wheels or color...not my thing.

    That green in the above photos is very nice for the HP but I also like yellow a lot and...classic...black. Even white looks quite good on the Performante but probably not my favorite color.

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

    I think the bronze looks great with the right paint. Furthermore it's a historic colour, which has been used by Lamborghini for their special models before. And they can't go red at the engine, because this is no Ferrari.

    I agree. Mine will have bronze wheels and orange paint.


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

    I'd opt for Verde Scandal or Viola Ophelia (not the SE-version of that paint though). The bronze wheels would fit the latter well...
