7 Lamborghini Huracán Performante beats Contidrom lap record

Cover for Lamborghini Huracán Performante beats Contidrom lap record

According to Autozeitung, Lamborghini Huracán Performante has beaten the 3.6 km Contidrom lap record comfortably, leaving little doubt about legitimacy of Lamborghini's Nürburgring Nordschleife claims.

Sometimes we see disconnect between manufacturers claims and results from independent media. This is not the case. Performante has validated its track performance claims by improving the Contidrom lap record by 2 seconds.

To put things in perspective, time gap between Performante (1:29.6) and closest competitor Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Performance Pack (1:31.6) would be more than difference between slowest and fastest Formula 1 team.

It looks like the fancy active aerodynamics are no gimmick and provide practical advantage in all types of tracks, not just undulating, high speed loops of Nürburgring.

And honestly i dont believe in the huracan nurburgring lap time
this car could be 1 sec faster in this nearly 4km length circuit but with a track nearly 6 time longer and much more difficult with much more turn the difference between this one and the competition will never be 20 second but maybe 5 to 10 second.
im impatient to see the lap made by sport auto by Christian Gebhardt . This will be much more believable.

The unique type of corners, insane elevation changes and others things makes nurburgring a very unique track, one of a kind, there is no other track like it in the world, so lap times set there might not translate to other tracks due to unique conditions.

Just because car is very fast of Nurburgring and not so fast on other tracks doesn't mean the lap time is fake, it most likely means it just suits Nurburgring conditions better than other cars.

Ok this is fast but what's the difference between this contidrom and the one (3.8 km) that the Amg GT R Lapped in 1:26.46 ?

Still the Huracan's biggest ace up its sleeve is the trofeo Rs. I do applaud them for making quite a performance beast while sticking to no turbos.
The 570s gets to 200kph before the 640hp AWD hardcore lightened Huracan... lol

On a ring lap, the cars barely dip below 80kph over the course of nearly 7 minutes, so that 0-200kph figure doesn't matter much :-)
