Use the configurator to create your own!

If you love high-performance cars and racing (how can you not?), you’re probably dreaming about lapping the Nurburgring track in the incredible Lamborghini Huracan Performante right now. However, unless you have a fat wallet and have already placed an order, you’ll never have the chance to do that. Let’s face it, the Performante is awfully expensive for the average Joe and it’s probably sold out anyway. Fortunately, you can still design the Performante of your dreams in the online configurator and its absolutely free.

The configurator is pretty straight forward and doesn’t include too many options beyond the usual exterior and performance upgrades, but the number of exterior colors available is impressive. There are two solid colors and five metallic hues, mostly white, black, and gray. But go with the Pearl Effect range and you can get the stunning Giallo Inti, Arancio Borealis, and Verde Mantis. Beyond that, there’s a rage of custom Ad Personam finishes, including matte, solid, metallic, and pearl. Interesting choices include Giallo Horus, Verde Scandal, Viola Ophelia, Oro Elios, Blu Cepheus, and Viola SE 30th. The latter is based on the color that Lambo launched for the Diablo SE30 Jota back in the 1990s.

Naturally, all these colors are paired to the green-white-red Italian "tricolore" above the side skirts and the dark-colored "forged composite" elements such as the side skirts, diffuser, and front splitter.

Next up, you need to pick the color for the carbon-ceramic brakes, and you can choose between six caliper finishes. There’s black, green, orange, red, silver, and yellow, each providing interesting contrasts with several body colors. Since I "painted" my Performante in Verde Mantis, I went with red calipers, since red and green are complementary colors.

As soon as you finish up the calipers, the configurator moves on to the rims. All wheels measure 20 inches, but there are three design with various finishes. The double-five-spoke rims are called Mimas and can be had in either silver, gloss black or matte titanium. The multi-spoke Narvi wheels are available in either high-sheen black or bronze, while the five-spoke, forged Loge wheels are black and come with either black or red center locking nut. The latter seems to go well with the red calipers on my build.

The configurator then moves onto technology, where you can choose whether you want a sensor or sensor plus camera for park assistance. You can also select the Style Package, which adds darker exhaust pipes among other features.

As mentioned above, my dream Huracan Performante needs to be finished in Verde Mantis. I’ve been obsessed with bright green Lambos ever since I saw the Miura in a similar shade. The red details on the brake calipers and rims also go well with the body color. I don’t see the need of park assistance and the Style Package on a track-focused car, but I guess the former can be pretty useful when parking on crowded streets. Too bad the configurator doesn’t have an interior section.
