Bend after bend, curb after curb, setting the new record at the Nürburgring Nordschleife, one of the longest and most challenging circuits in the world, was an epic feat, made possible thanks to teamwork and to the new Lamborghini Huracán Performante, a car designed with one thing in mind: being the fastest.
The brand new car has already proved its extraordinary capabilities ahead of its unveiling at Geneva Motor Show next week. On 5 October 2016, the Huracán Performante set a new production car lap record of 6:52.01 min on the Nürburgring Nordschleife in Germany.
Following the day’s open sessions on the “Ring”, at 17.00 officials closed the track to other manufacturers. After official track checks this left just a 15-minute window for Lamborghini to make one attempt at the lap record with a production Huracán Performante, still in its development camouflage.
With Lamborghini test driver Marco Mapelli behind the wheel, the Huracán Performante warmed up its tires and made its rolling start, fitted inside and out with onboard cameras and telemetry to record the car’s lap. Experience the thrill of taking to this iconic track and challenging the legendary Green Hell.
