The Huracan was already an impressive piece of engineering. It only gets better with the Lamborghini Huracan Performante. At its heart is the most powerful V10 Lamborghini has ever produced, outputting 640 hp, and paired to a seven-speed dual clutch transmission. It's 40kg lighter than the next-lightest Huracan, with forged composite used in the front and rear spoiler, bonnet, rear bumper, and diffuser. A patented active aerodynamic system closes and opens flaps in the front, and rear providing added downforce or lower drag, and the stiffer suspension makes for an even more engaging drive. As a result, it can move from 0-62 mph in just 2.9 seconds and hit a top speed of over 200 mph, enough to lap the Nürburgring in just six minutes and 52 seconds.
Ruf Automobile made its name building cars on unmarked Porsche chassis, so it's no surprise that their first car engineered and designed in-house bears more than a passing resemblance to a 911. The Ruf CTR Supercar is far more than a knockoff, however. It has the world's first rear-engine carbon fiber monocoque chassis, a 3.6L twin-turbo flat six engine producing 700 hp, a six-speed manual to help send that power to the rear wheels, and a carbon fiber body to help reduce weight. All of that combines in eye-popping performance, including a 0-60 time of 3.5 seconds and a top speed of over 220 mph. Built in Germany, production will be limited to just 30 units.
