Don’t take our word for it, though, because Lamborghini adds to that list by claiming the composites are shapable and attractive. If this sounds a lot like carbon fiber, then you’re right. However one large advantage remains: the fact that forged composites are cheaper, easier to build, and in many cases, are stronger than their weaved, shaped, and baked carbon fiber alternatives. The composite’s connection to the Performante is the fact that the material is used liberally within the Lambo, helping it shave 220 pounds over the standard Huracan and helping it beat Porsche’s hypercar. Could Lamborghini be using the Performante to debut the liberal use of its new material? We hope to find out soon.
