To celebrate the car’s success, and as part of the 2017 New York International Auto Show, Lamborghini held an exclusive event in lower Manhattan this past month. Although I mixed up my dates, I did get to see the Canoe Studios space the day prior to the superfast’s North American premiere.

At 88 lb lighter than its production sibling and pushing out an 28 extra hp to 630, the Performante’s Green Ring busting spectacular was accomplished not by a few extra ponies or carbon fiberous bits, but by right clever active aero-trickery. According to Federico Foschini, Commercial Director, Automobili Lamborghini S.p.A “Tonight, in the heart of New York City to bring a taste of Italy and unveil our latest automotive creation,” stated Foschini. “The Performante is a proud achievement of new aerodynamics; a vehicle is literally ‘sculpted by the wind.’”
