Got Water? Californian Huracan Performante Gets Hosed Down on the Street

Until recently, Lamborghinis have been more about the show than anything else. Things started to change with the introduction of the Huracan, which is the first model in the history of the Raging Bull that can be used as a daily driver.

The usability-boosting transformation has also touched the Aventador. For instance, the Superveloce model became the most responsive V12 model ever made in Sant'Agata Bolognese. And the Aventador S, which is the mid-cycle revamp for the vee-twelve model, has borrowed plenty of features from the SV, while its slightly milder tune means the thing is even less determined to make the one behind the wheel sweat.

Returning to the Huracan, the Performante might have come up with a considerably spicier approach, but the thing has kept its driver-friendly aura.

And all these efforts the Italian automotive producer is making can also be translated in sweet Nurburgring lap times - while the Aventador SV can lap the Green Hell in 6:59, the Huracan Performante currently holds the record for production cars, thanks to a 6:52 lap.

However, the look-at-me aura is obviously still a top priority and you can regard the Instagram pic you see here as a real-world example that comes to back this up.

The photo shows a Huracan Performante getting a bath during the Goldrush Rally and the reaction of the crowd says it all.

Even so, there are certain aficionados who might not be all that in love with the looks of the Huracan Performante. Truth be told, while the various special editions of the Gallardo managed to keep the clean look for the aprons, we can't say the same thing about the uber-Huracan.

For instance, the ALA active aero bits on the supercar mean that the nose of the V10 animal must accommodate a pretty complex structure. But this is another story for another time.
