That the Huracán was designed with open-roofed aspirations from the start helps the cause, and it means that popping the top didn’t require extra bracing for its aluminum and carbon-fiber spaceframe. Lamborghini R&D head Maurizio Reggiani says torsional rigidity is reduced by 10 percent versus the coupe, although detecting the loss is all but impossible—90 percent of hyperstiff is still hyperstiff. Indeed, we couldn’t detect a hint of cowl quiver in our drive around extremely rainy Miami.

In October 2016, the Performante set a lap time of 6:52. 01 on the Nürburgring Nordschleife, with Marco Mapelli behind the wheel, making it the world's fastest production car around the track. This lap was also made on Marco Mapelli's first attempt. However, some critics have stated complaints around the car's lap time, from the official video being sped up to make the lap believable, to the speeds displayed in the video being false or that it did not use road tires. However, Lamborghini was able to prove that the lap the Performante did was fully legitimate exactly a week after the lap around the Nordschleife when they revealed the data to car website, Road & Track. Máté Petrany of R&T had met with lead engineer of Lamborghini, Maurizio Reggiani, to ask about the lap. It was then revealed by Reggiani that the Performante's active aerodynamic system called Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva is what gives the car the greatest improvement in lap time. It is said by Lamborghini that on ALA's most aggressive setting, 750% more downforce is created compared to the standard LP 610-4. What is more important is the spoilers snapping into their lowest-drag setting when the Performante is aimed forward, which results in the removal of acceleration impediment that big aero causes.
