The best-kept secret is out: the 1016 Industries carbon fiber aero program for the Lamborghini Performante is nearing its release date. To mark the end of all the engineering & design work, scanning process’ and in-depth testing, we’ve decided to create a photoshoot showcasing the current, 1016 Industries Huracan LP-610-4, pitted against what can easily be considered as the most aggressive high-performance sports coupe out there – the Huracan Performante.
The current 1016 Industries Renato aero kit consists of a front lip, side skirts, a rear aero diffuser and a rear wing kit – which comes with upper blade and lower mounting piece. Parts are made from high-quality, US-made pre-preg carbon fiber available in standard 2×2 6K fabric or optional custom finishes. All parts are designed, engineered and built in-house providing supreme quality, fitment, and strength. The efforts of the development and manufacturing process yield the most advanced solution for this vehicle.
The carbon fiber added creates both an appealing and aggressive look to the exterior while also providing maximized functional performance. The same principle will be applied to the Performante.
When compared to the Huracan Performante, the current 1016 Industries tune results in a better power and torque output: the Performante comes with a factory retuned 5.2 liter V10 engine, delivering 631 hp (471 kW; 640 PS) at 8000 rpm and 443 lb·ft (601 N·m) of torque at 6500 rpm. Furthermore, since t he engineers at the Italian car maker also decreased the weight of the vehicle by a whopping 40 kg (88 lb), thanks to the forged aluminum and forged carbon fiber body (first used in the Sesto Elemento) and hollow parts, the Huracan Performante will sprint from 0-100km/h (0-62mph) in as low as 2.9 seconds. The vehicle will reach a top speed of around 325km/h (202mph).
The 1016 Industries Huracan tune features a unique ECU and TCU tuning solution that upgrades the power and torque levels to 640 horsepower and 448lb-ft of torque, while also improving throttle response, gearshift speed, traction management, and other driveline communications. The resulting solution achieves the most complete and powerful upgrade to an already outstanding platform, allowing the user to be more connected and controlled in their driving experience. Additionally, we are able to offer a complete custom aftermarket exhaust system and tune, pushing the power output to a whopping 670 horsepower.
With the upcoming Huracan Performante aero program, we will address several high-profile issues, ensuring the ultimate Huracan receives the visual treatment it deserves. All the 1016 Industries Huracan Performante aero additions will be made from a forged composite, upgrading both the engineering & design, but also the production process to a wholly new level. The upcoming parts will include a brand new front add-on spoiler, front add-on flippers, side intake covers, hood, vented front fenders, side skirts and a diffuser add-on. Stay tuned for more information about our entire carbon program for the Performante in the following weeks.
