Lamborghini is taking no liberties with its new Huracan Performante, which finally gets its name featured in a new video by the Italian carmaker. Performance is the keyword here and there’s plenty of it on show as the new raging bull sets a Nurburgring lap time of 6 minutes 52.01 seconds.

To put that into perspective, the Lambo is quicker than the Porsche 918 Spyder (6 minutes 57 seconds), the track-focused Radical SR8 (6 minutes 55 seconds), Aventador SV (6 minutes 59.73 seconds) and Mercedes-AMG GT R (7 minutes 10.92 seconds). The person responsible for setting the blistering time is the company’s test driver, Marco Mapelli.

Part of what makes the Huracan Performante that quick on the track is what Lamborghini calls Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva or ALA, a technology that allows the driver to “manage active aerodynamics in an innovative way.”

As a separate video explains, the car’s front spoiler features active flaps that open and close for maximum downforce to allow for higher cornering speeds or minimum drag when top speed is needed. Meanwhile, the active rear wing varies its angle depending on similar requirements as well.

More details about the new Lamborghini model, including if there’s more power harnessed from its 5.2 litre V10, will be provided once it makes its global premiere in Geneva, which isn’t too far away.
