    bobr:

    Smiley Excellent color for your car. Fingers crossed the factory approves the change.

    Thanks but my wife disagrees...she still roots for white (I think). Smiley

    Funny side story about the chosen color (Verde Mantis): A friend of ours is a psychiatrist and we kind of started discussing cars during our dinner yesterday. When I told him that I ordered a Huracan Performante, he asked what color (mainly because it is a psychology thing for him...colors and all Smiley). After explaining to me what this choice means (you don't want to know... Smiley), he also told me that for Germany, this is a very "good" color. I was surprised to hear that because I thought it is a very provocative color. Smiley So he told me that in his opinion, this color will actually create more sympathy and less envy than other, more regular colors, simply because it is a very surreal and unusual color and people aren't used to it, they do not "identify" with it, they probably would never choose this color for their own car, so I'm good because the feelings will be more positive and less envious. 

    Wow...I was speechless. I don't really know if this is true or he was just making fun of me (he has a very special humor but this isn't actually his way of making fun) Smiley but I've never looked at this from this perspective. We'll see if he is right.... Smiley

    Oh, of course he made a funny remark afterwards (more of his humor ballpark): He told me that if he is right, he will send me a bill. Smiley I actually believe that, he is doing very well, so I guess his bills are pretty steep.

    She isn't pleased but she got used to the thought. Things aren't 100% sure yet, she is still rooting for white, so it depends on Lamborghini now...can't do anything about it anymore.

    He had a very good microphone with noise reduction because in reality, the car is 3x louder and I'm not kidding. That "noise" enters your brain, hurts a little bit in the beginning but afterwards it works like a (car) aphrodisiac, you can't get enough of it.  Smiley The Spyder is even more extreme than the Coupe because you are exposed to the full sound (not that the Performante Coupe has much noise insulation... Smiley).

    Noise? I call it Aural Sex. Smiley

    Paddle shifters need to keep on changing from strada to sport then corsa, while the rare manual shifter doesn't have those silly settings, the music is always on and every idiot driver out there thinks you're going full throttle and wants to race you Smiley

    The only Lambo that gave me a migraine for a minute was the V12 (Muric + Aventador) with aftermarket exhaust while doing a flyby, the V10 makes roaring symphony noises next to the V12 that feels like an explosion is about to occur depending on exhaust brand. Kreissieg is the best choice but requires deep pockets.

    Driving experience in the 12 ruins everything and it's sheer size Smiley

     


    Re: Lamborghini Huracan and variants

    Bad news from Italy I'm afraid: Lamborghini just called my dealer directly, as a courtesy, offering to exchange anything in the interior or regarding options but the paint is impossible...the painted body of the car is already in Italy, my car has already entered production and will be at the dealer in March(!) already (can't pick it up until after Easter though I'm afraid).

    So I guess I'm getting a white car...not really a problem since I initially ordered it this way but I was really looking forward to Verde Mantis. laugh Even my wife got warmed up to the idea... 

    Maybe I do some original Super Trofeo/Squadra Corse PPF design on the car or I give it an entirely different color, don't know yet. Dealer recommended to get the car, drive it a week or two (run-in, even if it isn't necessary) and then I can apply the PPF and decide what I do with it.

    Kids will be devastated though, especially my daughter. surprise

    Re: Lamborghini Huracan and variants

    Very sorry to hear that, but personally I think the car will look great in white, even if you don't PPF it.
    White with those many accents in black from the styling package and rims, combined with the forged composite will look great IMO. kiss

    Re: Lamborghini Huracan and variants

    As far as bad news goes this isn't that horrible, I think it will still look amazing. I was stopped in traffic a few days ago next to a regular Huracan in white and I kept thinking how great it looked, this could only be highly enhanced with the Performante.

    Re: Lamborghini Huracan and variants

    The Performante in green looks particularly great standing by itself, but that doesnt mean it is the best color, I think white suits you better personally. Its like a yellow gold Rolex vs a SS or Titanium one.

    If this is what concerns your children, I would consider rearranging priorities; however, that is just my opinion.  I have seen several white Performantes and have always found them attractive in a very sophisticated manner.  Remember, when you are driving the beast, you will see very little of the exterior of the car and the sound and driving experience is what counts.

    Re: Lamborghini Huracan and variants

    Can you get the color you want if you order the Evo? You might consider that option. After all, you have a few nice toys to play while you wait..

    Are you kidding? I am so happy I got myself one of the last new Performante, why would I order the Evo? Smiley

    The Performante is a special edition Lambo model, they kind of keep their value. The regular Huracan is a completely different story (look at the Gallardo, same thing).

    Another thing is: The Performante has a very sporty setup (chassis, gearbox, etc.), the Evo is more of a compromise to satisfy a bigger variety of customers. A Lamborghini engineer said the Evo is 90% the Performante. I want 100% Performante. Smiley wink

    Oh, another thing: Discount for the Performante was nice, discount for the Evo (new car) is ridiculous.

    Last but not least, an Evo with everything the Performante has (minus ALA, this doesn't exist for the Evo), is close to Performante price territory.

    This is like telling me to get the regular 911 Carrera GTS instead of the 911 GT3 RS...no thanks.

    Re: Lamborghini Huracan and variants

    Please let us know what you think when you get a chance to drive the Evo..  I would still bet for speeds below 100 mph that the Evo would outperform the perfomante in the mountain twisties where the new diff. /  torque vectoring  and conrol brain combined with rear wheel steering would truly come into play.  That is where my money is going.  Yes, around the Ring, with a pro driver who has the balls to carry high speed the ALA might have the advantage.


    Re: Lamborghini Huracan and variants

    I would not think twice between the track edition and the regular car....newer is not always better. 

    The performante is superb.

    Re: Lamborghini Huracan and variants

    I agree about newer not always being better... but watch the drive reviews (again) and notice the comments about turn in and lack of push and ability to control the tail when out.  RWS certainly helped with (albeit rear engine)  911 gt3's etc. and torque vectoring on my m5 comp. is certainly something I appreciate and wouldn't want to give up.  RC mainly drives with his buddies on mountain twisties, as I understand it, not the track.   But I'll reserve any more thinking that I know what I'm talking about until he drives both, and lets us know.  Gosh, the louder exhaust on the Performante may be all that's needed.

    First, I doubt you would be able to tell the difference in performance and styling between the two. If you put the green Evo next to the white Perfomante, the Perfermonte would disappear. I can’t speak to the price difference but I suspect from a leasing standpoint they are about the same. 

    Since you lease, I suppose buying a used green Perfermonte is out of the question?Smiley

    No, the Evo doesn't outperform the Performante in curves, the ALA torque vectoring is amazing, also the Performante has a completely different and track oriented chassis setup. In Bahrain, a Lamborghini engineer said that the Evo was only slightly faster in Nardo, probably because ALA is gunning mainly for downforce, thus reducing performance in the upper speed range. Nardo doesn't really have straights and the straights are necessary for ALA to "switch" into a lesser downforce mode. On the Nordschleife, the Performante is still faster than the Evo (rumors indicate slightly over 7 minutes with a factory driver but we have no precise time yet).

    The Evo benefits, according to the info from Bahrain (I talked to two people who were there, one was the GM of my dealership and the other one a well known car collector here), especially less skilled drivers, it is a very easy to drive sportscar, also very safe. The Performante is also pretty safe and easy to drive for such a car, Lamborghini wanted to make the car drivable even with ESP turned off. Apparently it is a very good car for drifting, very easy to control but I haven't tried it yet (drifting never has been my thing or my forte, I leave the tire destroying stuff to those who can afford it Smiley). There was a winter driving event a couple of weeks ago and the Performante is definitely a very good controllable snow drifter. The SVJ is a completely different beast, it may be the king of the Nordschleife but otherwise, not easy to drive fast.

    Re: Lamborghini Huracan and variants

    Still would like to hear your reports after driving both.  As I have heard that Lamborgini is downplaying somewhat the capability of the Evo so as to not disappoint new Performante buyers like yourself, even as regards to reported Ring times.

     I don't understand if Nardo doesn't have straights, thus has mostly curves, and the Evo beats the Performante on the Nardo,  Why isn't then the Evo better in the curves ?     The ALA I think would work best in fast sweeping curves where the speed is high enough ( like the Ring ) so that the 'torque' biased downforce can actually come into play.  Guessing here, that speeds around 60-70 mph the ALA has little effect.  

    Maybe your spirited mountain driving with your buddies in Germany are in big sweeping mountain areas where speeds are approaching 100 mph?  Mine here in northern Ca. are with speed limits really never above 55 mph.   And thus you play with the risk of an approaching log truck, deer, and bicyclist, and sometimes all at once.
