Stealthy Lamborghini Huracan Performante Is the Automotive Equivalent of a Fighter Jet

The Huracan saga is about to come to an end, with Lamborghini announcing that the entire production allocation has been sold out until the model leaves the assembly line for good in 2024.

The great V10-powered supercar was launched in 2014 as the successor to the Gallardo, and over the last decade, the Italian exotic auto marque introduced several special editions based on the same underpinnings.

All of them featured the same naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V10 mounted in the middle, which is offered in different outputs depending on the specification. One of the most exciting versions of the Huracan is the Performante, which came out in 2017 as a Coupe and in 2018 as a Spyder (convertible).

An even more driver-focused variant of the series, the Lamborghini Huracan Performante packs 631 hp (640 ps/471 kW) at 8,000 rpm and 443 pound-feet (600 Nm) of torque at 6,500 rpm, or 30 hp (30 ps/22 kW) and 30 lb-ft (40 Nm) more than the LP 610-4. It can hit sixty-two miles per hour (100 kph) in 2.9 seconds, with the open-top model being two-tenths slower, and both max out at 201 mph (325 kph).

Is there anything that hasn't been said about the Lamborghini Huracan Performante, regardless of the body style? That would be a no, as it has been put through its paces in countless tests over the years. However, it's not all about the performance, as this is one sexy machine. Some might say that it looks best with a lively finish, as it is, after all, a supercar, whereas others believe it would be just as sexy in a darker suit.

We're all about flashy looks when it comes to the exotic establishment. However, at the same time, we cannot help but praise those stealthy copies that we get to see occasionally. Speaking of the latter, it was AL13 Wheels that made this one famous on its social media. The supercar in question features a satin black look with no shiny accents at all. It rides on the company’s R100 wheels in glossy black, which are available in diameters ranging from 18 to 24 inches.

By the looks of it, this Lamborghini Huracan Performante Spyder hasn't suffered any other modifications bar the new wheels, and we think it looks just perfect. The supercar is probably not for sale, or AL13 Wheels would have said so in the caption accompanying the pics shared on Instagram a few days ago, and it is only used as a marketing tool to promote the aforementioned alloys that look good on it, especially since they also feature a Y-spoke design.

If you had a Huracan, would you go for the stealthy or the flashy look? It'd be the former for me, but I promise I won't judge you regardless of your selection, so long as you stay away from Mansory's aftermarket bits for it.
