Written By:

Lamborghini left its rivals flat footed when it unveiled the new king of the Nurburgring, the Huracan Performante, which blistered the tarmac at the Green Hell in Germany with a time of 6:52.01.

A month after its global debut in the Swiss Alps, the Huracan Performante was launched in India. Priced at Rs 3.97 crore ex-showroom (India), the Huracan Performante has found its first ever home in the nation's financial capital of Mumbai.

Wearing an Arancio Borealis (orange to the common folk) paint job, the Huracan Performante is apparently set to join a very elite set of supercars including which includes India's only 458 Speciale Aperta.

The orange bull from Mumbai is apparently the first of three Huracan Performante which will call India home. Another Performante painted in the Verde Mantis (Green to us mortals) will settle down in Mumbai, whereas another orange Huracan Performante will head south to Bangalore where it is expected to join a rarefied garage which also plays host to the nation's only drop-top Aventador SV.

The Huracan Performante is powered by a 5.2-litre naturally aspirated V10 engine that produces 631bhp and 600Nm of torque which is sent to all four wheels through a 7-speed dual clutch automatic gearbox. The Huracan Performante sprints from 0-100kph in 2.9 seconds and tops out north of 325kph.

DriveSpark Thinks!

The Lamborghini Huracan Performante is one of the fastest cars on the planet and considering that three are expected to call India home, it shows the nation's growing appetite for speed.

However, we don't even want to know what the response from the public will be if the Huracan meant for Bangalore pops up alongside the nation's first McLaren 720S considering the manic response to the British supercar hitting the streets of the garden city.
