Presenting one of the most exhilarating and driver-focused supercars ever created – the Lamborghini LP 640-4 Performance. Unveiled by the iconic Raging Bull brand at the prestigious 2017 Geneva Motor Show, this remarkable vehicle is purpose-built for one thing: dominating the racetrack. While it may not be destined for official FIA-sanctioned races, it shines brilliantly during track days, delivering an unmatched blend of performance, precision, and pure driving excitement.
Behold the Lamborghini LP 640-4 Performance, a supercar that’s not just exhilarating but a testament to high-performance engineering. Unveiled at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, this exceptional vehicle is designed to excel on the racetrack, making it the ideal choice for track days and thrilling driving experiences.
Distinguishing the Performance from the standard Huracan is its striking visual makeover. Notably, the Performance boasts distinctive front and rear bumpers, an abundance of carbon fiber elements (including a prominent rear wing), and a unique exhaust configuration that positions it above the rear diffuser.
The Spyder variant of the Performance made its debut one year after the Coupe, also at the Geneva Motor Show. While it shares the same cutting-edge technology as its hardtop counterpart, it clocks a 0-60 mph time that’s just 0.1 seconds slower – a difference hardly noticeable. Achieving 60 mph in a mere 3.1 seconds remains an incredible feat. However, the Performante Spyder does take an additional 0.4 seconds to reach 124 mph from a standstill, which might be somewhat perceptible to discerning drivers.
But fear not, as there’s a straightforward solution to enhance its performance capabilities. Enter the 2018 Huracan Performante Spyder, now available for auction to the highest bidder.
The exterior of this beauty is finished in Rosso Bia, adorned with iconic Italian Tricolore side stripes, forged-composite front and rear spoilers, and a sleek black soft top. It’s also equipped with the Style Package, which adds high-gloss black mirror housings and side skirts, prominently featuring the name ‘Heffner Performance’ – more on that in a moment.
Further enhancing the aesthetics are the black 20” Loge forged wheels with red center-lock nuts, Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires (245/30 front, 305/30 rear), and black Lambo-branded calipers embracing carbon-ceramic rotors.
Inside the cabin, you’ll find Nero Cosmus Alcantara upholstery adorned with red contrast stitching throughout, encompassing the seats, dashboard, center console, and door panels. The seats also feature Performante-branded bolsters. Additional highlights include forged composite trim, a Lamborghini Sensonum sound system, satellite navigation, a rear-view camera, cruise control, climate control, and an Alcantara-wrapped steering wheel with column-mounted paddle shifters.

Now, let’s talk about the heart of this beast – the engine. Remember the name Heffner Performance? It’s crucial because this tuner has worked its magic on the car’s 5.2-liter V10 engine. While the standard engine churns out 631 horsepower and 443 lb-ft of torque, Heffner Performance has unleashed its potential with a slew of modifications. These enhancements include 69 mm twin-turbochargers, stainless-steel exhaust housings, custom downpipes and midpipes, 50 mm blow-off valves, a custom water-to-air intercooler system, twin high-flow air filters, and more. The car now runs on E85 flex-fuel, and according to the seller, it produces well over 1,000 wheel horsepower.
To put that into perspective, 1,000 horsepower at the wheels, in an all-wheel-drive car, translates to around 1,200 horsepower at the crank. Conservatively speaking, this Huracan should be able to rocket from 0 to 60 mph in the 2.5-second range, possibly even hitting 2.0 seconds flat – a realm typically reserved for the Tesla Plaid.
In jest, we hope Scuderia Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc doesn’t stumble upon this ad, or he might find himself contemplating a dilemma. All jokes aside, the prospect of Lamborghini joining Formula 1 in the future is an exciting one, and enthusiasts can only dream of such a scenario.
