This is the Lamborghini Huracan Performante, which Lamborghini claims is the fastest production car to lap the Nurburgring Nordschleife

Its time of 6m52.01s is five seconds faster than the Porsche 918 Spyder.

Which goes to show what you can do if you get a great driver, some lovely tyres and you don't have to lug around a battery pack and electric motor with you. The Performante's dry weight is just 1382kg, around 60kg less than a regular Huracan, while power is up by 30bhp to 631bhp (640 metric hp).

Other things to know? There will be no cap on production and the car will go on sale this summer priced at £213,000.
