In the Performante’s case, that feast comes with a liberal topping of tactile Alcantara and Lamborghini’s ‘forged composite’ carbonfibre resin.
Forged composite is pretty much everywhere you might find plain plastic in the standard Huracán: it’s what the interior door handles, air vents and much of the centre console mouldings are made of. As is evident on the outside of the car, it’s a deliciously attractive material just to admire.
From a functional standpoint, the Huracán’s cabin has its flaws, ranging from slightly annoying to the more serious, but to consider many of them in isolation would be to ignore what they contribute to the greater part of the car’s appeal: the way it looks.
Sure, there’s a limited amount of head room and the steeply raked windscreen cuts into forward visibility. But accepting both foibles means you get to drive something that looks about as arresting as a modern fighter jet.
The Performante’s standard seats feel a bit pudgy and high mounted, but if you specify Lamborghini’s optional fixed-back bucket-style seats (as fitted to the left-hand-drive example that we performance tested, rather than the one we photographed), you get a lower seating position and just enough head room for an average-height driver wearing a crash helmet.
