2018 Lamborghini Huracán Performante by the Numbers

Lambo hot laps on this week's episode of "Ignition"

Get ready to go fast—really, really fast. On this new episode of “Ignition” presented by Tire Rack, raging bull apostle Jonny Lieberman sets out to convince doubting Jethro Bovingdon that the wind-cheating Huracán Performante really is as good as Lamborghini says it is.

Remember, Lambo showed the world a Nürburgring lap time of 6:52.01, at the time a record-breaking run that was 4.99 seconds quicker than the Porsche 918 Spyder.

The plan is of course to hand the Performante over to pro driver Randy Pobst—the man who set the Big Willow lap record of 1:23.54—to see what he can make of the bright green beastie.

If the Performante can beat the 918 on Big Willow, then surely it can (and did) do the deed on the ’Ring. However, before they get to the track, Bovingdon and Lieberman have a little driving to do themselves.

Does the Performante do the numbers? Watch and find out when the 190th episode of “Ignition” goes live on Wednesday, April 4.
