The Lamborghini Huracan Performante lapped the Nurburgring in under 7 minutes

It's 5 seconds quicker on the 'Ring than the Porsche 918 Spyder.

Lamborghini just released new footage of its Huracán Performante at the Nürburgring, and along with it some big news. The car managed to lap the 'Ring in a stunningly quick time of 6:52. That time puts it ahead of the Porsche 918 Spyder's record of 6:57 by a massive 5 seconds. It's also just 4 seconds shy of the Radical SR8LM, which barely qualifies as a street-legal car.

Though the Huracán Performante isn't the first Lamborghini to crack the seven-minute mark at the Nürburgring, it's done it by the largest margin. The Aventador LP750-4 SV was the first Lambo under 7 minutes with a time of 6:59.73. Lamborghini hasn't released specifications for this new Huracán, but it reportedly produces 630 horsepower from a V10 engine, which is substantially less than its slower 740-horsepower Aventador SV sibling. Odds are it was helped on the track by lighter weight, and the reported active aerodynamics on-board.

Check out the video above in its entirety. And then check back during the Geneva Show to see the full reveal of this monstrously fast Lambo.
