Lamborghini Just Restored Its Terrible Formula One Car

  Lamborghini Just Restored Its Terrible Formula One Car Apropos of nothing, Lamborghini has returned Minardi M191B chassis #003 to vintage racing duties after a lengthy seven-month restoration by the company’s Polo Storico division. Many of the original 1990s Lamborghini and Minardi staff were involved in the restoration.

The Huracan Performante was launched just last year at the 2017 Geneva motor show, featuring a 5.2-liter V10 engine producing a heady 631 hp. It manages 0-62 mph in just 2.9 seconds and will travel on to a whopping top speed of 218 mph.
