Sant’Agata Bolognese/London, 24 May 2017 – The Huracán Performante has been awarded the Innovation Award by the UK’s Autocar magazine. The presentation was made to Board Member for Research and Development, Maurizio Reggiani, in an event at Silverstone circuit, which coincided with Lamborghini’s week-long dynamic launch of the car in Italy, to media worldwide.
“The Huracán Performante demonstrates intriguing innovation in its active aerodynamics system,” said Autocar editor Mark Tisshaw. “The award recognises the technology that most impressed us during the last year, something that has broken new ground.
“Having just driven the car at its launch, we can also vouch for the remarkable performance of this naturally aspirated super sports car. The active aerodynamics system takes dynamic handling to a new level.”
“We are very proud to receive formal recognition from a prominent and respected UK automotive publication,” said Maurizio Reggiani. “The Huracán Performante’s abilities are already proven from its production car lap record at the Nürburgring Nordschleife. This award provides additional acknowledgement of the car’s prowess, which is largely due to its patented ALA system (Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva), and a testament to the talent of our R&D and design teams.”
