The Lamborghini Huracan Performante is no slouch out of the box; it has a 630 HP V10 mounted in the middle, active aerodynamics, and all-wheel-drive. It is the fastest Lamborghini ever made, around any road course in the world. But VF Engineering takes cars with more chassis than engine, and gives them the power they need. So they supercharged it. The result is 870 HP and 630 lb/ft of torque at the crank. We wanted to try it, so we went to a Speed Ventures Track Day at Auto Club Speedway!
Test Notes: At the end of this video, the vehicle displays a “Engine Bay Temperature” warning. The “Engine compartment temperature warning” is independent of engine oil and coolant temperatures, and not related to engine performance, but rather an indication that ambient temperatures within the engine bay are higher than expected for the driving conditions.
After further examination it was determined to be related to the oil fill level (being too high) and the radiant heat generated by the upper oil reservoir (located in the engine bay). Once the oil level was corrected, the issue was resolved.
