This is the Huracan Performante, the recently crowned king of the Nurburgring Nordschleife - the unofficial benchmark for the fastest cars in the world - with a 6m52s lap time, beating the record previously held by the Porsche 918 Spyder.

Having already shown off a video of the record lap, the Italian supercar maker has now revealed details of the changes made to the car in order to extract more performance ahead of its official reveal at the 2017 Geneva motor show.

The company took a holistic approach to improving the Huracan, adding more power and torque, using more lightweight materials and redesigning the aerodynamics.

"The Huracán Performante is the convergence of technological developments to produce a car delivering perfect performance," explained Lamborghini CEO Stefano Domenicali.

"This new car represents the powerhouse of Lamborghini DNA and innovation, and a 360 degree approach to creating class-leading super sports cars. It illustrates the pinnacle of Lamborghini V10 production car performance to date, on both track and road, and is perfectly exemplified by its name: Lamborghini Huracán Performante."

The 5.2-litre V10 engine was reworked to lift power from 412kW to 470kW and torque from 560Nm to 600Nm.

Lamborghini managed to cut 40kg of weight from the car with greater use of its forged composite material. The light but strong material was used for the engine cover, front and rear wings, rear diffuser and rear bumper.

The front and rear wings have been developed specifically for the Performante and feature the latest in active aerodynamic technology. Dubbed Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva (or ALA, the Italian word for wing) the systems use flaps on both the front and the rear to open and close at speed depending on the conditions.

The flaps can open for greater cooling and more downforce but close when extra cooling isn't need to reduce drag.

Lamborghini has also redesigned the suspension, making it stiffer by 10 per cent for improved responsiveness and road holding.

The Performante rides on unique 20-inch alloy wheels wrapped in Pirelli P Zero Corsa tyres.

In addition to its Nurburgring record, Lamborghini claims the Performante can cover the 0-100km/h sprint in just 2.9 seconds and 0-200km/h in 8.9secs.

The Huracan Performante is due to arrive in Australia in the middle of 2017. It will be priced from $483,866 (plus on-road costs).
