2017 Lamborghini Huracán Performante First Drive: A New Force

  2017 Lamborghini Huracán Performante First Drive: A New Force Lambo’s new technology redefines active aero…with astounding resultsThe most fascinating aspect of the new Lamborghini Huracn Performante isn't its increased power, new tires, reworked suspension, or improved ABS system. It isn't its recalculated stability and traction control programs, upgraded transmission, or decreased weight, either.

Watching drag races between supercars can lose its appeal after a while. Enthusiasts tend to know which car is going to win well before the race even kicks off. However, when you have a sleeper or heavily-modified car in the race, there tends to be a little more excitement. After all, who knows what that modded car is really packing under the hood, or how well it puts the power down?

In the video below, we see a V-10-powered BMW E30 M3 pitted against a Lamborghini Huracan LP580-2. Both cars are spectacular in their own right, but the S85B50 DOHC V-10 plopped into the E30 M3 transforms it into an absolute speed demon. If left unturned, the 5.0-liter V-10 makes 500 horsepower and 384 lb-ft of torque. This, as it turns out, is plenty of power to hurl the lightweight coupe ahead of the 580-hp two-wheel-drive Huracan. Throughout the entire race, the E30 M3 continues to pull away from the Lamborghini Huracan, until it finally finishes approximately two car lengths ahead.

Refreshing or Revolting: 2018 BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo .
<p>How does its styling compare to the 5 Series GT?</p>Up front, the new BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo's headlights look more like those on the current 7 Series sedan with squared off LED headlight rings instead of round halos. The lower and wider twin-kidney grille, along with a lower hood and larger lower fascia intakes, gives the new car a more aggressive stance.
