Recently heard good news from Lamborghini car company. By the time the 2017 Geneva Motor Show event was held, Lamborghini created a new innovation for his new car. We call it Lamborghini Huracan 2018. This car was created with more sophisticated technology. Then improvements to the chassis system, aerodynamic aero vectors, and improvements to the powertrain. Lamborghini Huracan is one of the fastest super sports car in its class. As quoted from the official website, that this car is able to get the best in every circuit and show a dynamic way of driving. The speed of this car is tested on the way down at the Nürburgring Nordschleife circuit in Germany.
We quote a few explanations from Stefano Domenicali, which is Lamborghini Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. Lamborghini Huracan Performante is the fastest car equipped with the perfect technology development, giving a great performance effect. He added, too, that the innovation of this car concept based on the Lamborghini family as a predecessor version, and is a classy car.
We will separate on the design part, both interior and exterior, then on the developed machine.
First, We discussed about the interior of this car. The interior concept of this car looks more light and aerodynamic. They use materials from Forged Composite. And then applied to door handles, paddles, air vents and also for center console. Then, the dark color of the Alcantara fabric is applied on all sides, including also in the sport seats.
Not only was a quick drive, but the driver can also be fully connected with the activity of the active aerodynamics. For example, on a dash screen equipped with Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva (ALA) that allows how to ALA works and includes its aero vectoring.
In addition, the new digital cockpit view allows for drivers to choose the driving mode they like. Among them such as: Strada, Sport or Corsa which also displays the ALA system in detail. The cockpit layout also provides some facilities like Apple CarPlay and iPhone apps that support Lamborghini telemetry systems. The benefits for the driver is to record, replay, and learn about their driving performance.

As we explained above, that for Lamborghini Huracan 2018 utilizes the ALA system which means wings for the italian people call it. The active variations developed for Lamborghini Huracan Performante support the aero load for low drag and high down force.
On the back of the hood is designed around the air duct toward the rear wing and the wing pole. Then on the front spoiler using an electric motor which is the front of the ALA system. And also designed on carbon forged frame with an active cover on the top exterior surface. All of these systems are integrated on Lamborghini Huracan to create good performance, design and balanced weight when driving at high speed.
In the ALA system, integrated Lamborghini’s Piattaforma Inerziale (LPI) which is a realtime vehicle electronic system. At each driving condition, the active ALA system is less than 500ms to get the best aerodynamics.
Then on the contrary, when ALA is turned off, flaps on the front spoiler will be closed, resulting in high downforce for cornering at high speed and also full brake condition. And when the ALA system is back on, the front flaps are opened by the front electric motor, thereby reducing the air pressure on the front spoiler and directing the airflow through the bottom of the car and deep channel. The results obtained from this system method, indicating the car can accelerate to the maximum and get a high speed.
In order to reduce drag and maximize acceleration of the car, LPI will turn on ALA at high throttle condition. By way of opening the rear flaps to direct airflow through the wing ducts, and direct the airflow through the lower back of the wing.
On the exterior, Lamborghini Huracan Performante still refers to Lamborghini DNA. So the designs that create and illustrate the goal as a super-fast car equipped with advanced technology.
The front of the car has a look so sharp as a racing car in general. The aerodynamic front spoiler is clearly visible in Forged Composite. A sporty and lightweight look is shown with the help of the front bumper.
Then for the rear, it is presented with a wide carbon fiber, with Forged Composite material that allows active aerodynamic strength. Rear wing coupled with air ducts that create stability by using Forged Composite technology.
On the side, the design of this car is marked by acceleration line from the rocket cover on the air intake in matt black, and also the top with a shiny black mirror. The Narvi 20″ wheels are attached to this car and painted in bronze.
Then performed an overhaul on the suspension. This reshuffle aims to produce faster performance in each track. Equipped also with double wishbone system in the front and rear. Then also added passive dampers with magneto rheological suspension. Active and passive suspension aims to improve the body and wheel control in each lane.
Lamborghini Huracan Performante has a very fast acceleration. And also supported with a nimble braking system. In addition, there is also a dual-circuit hydraulic system with support vacuum brake servo that has a six-piston caliper on the front, and four-piston calipers on the back.

Lamborghini Huracan 2018 Engine
Lamborghini Huracan 2018 adopts the strongest engine system V10. Thus capable of producing 640 hp (470 kW) at 8,000 rpm and 600 Nm of torque at 6,500 rpm. The sophisticated technology of Lamborghini, creating an incredible powertrain. Improvements to the exhaust and intake are supported from Engine fluid dynamics.
The exhaust system has been reconverted to reduce load and pressure. Then on the exhaust pipe set more central and higher, resulting in a loud sound like a ferocious motor racing. With a much better engine power, this car engine is capable of producing optimized torque curves. And use the seven-speed transmission to improve the more perfect performance.
