Lamborghini Teases New Forged Carbon Material in Video

Can it beat Pagani’s Carbo-Triax?

The forthcoming Lamborghini Huracn Performante absolutely blew us away during a recent test drive. And it's more than just a power or suspension upgrade, it's a whole package that turns the Huracn from a supercar to a race car built for the road. Part of that chemistry is down to one ingredient, forged carbon.

Originally used in the special-edition Lamborghini Sesto Elemento, the automaker's carbon material (now trademarked as Forged Composites) has been slowly added to production cars, appearing in the removable roof in the Aventador, a few interior pieces, and an optional forged carbon fiber engine bay trim on the Huracn.

Now, Lamborghini is teasing more uses of the company's new composite technology with a new video before the Huracn Performante debuts this March at the Geneva Motor Show. The video is just 42 seconds of stylized Lamborghini marketing. The views of the forged carbon fiber are gorgeous, but the video really provides no real details on what parts of the new Lamborghini Performante will use the advanced material. However, we know at the very least the rear wing will be composed of this magical new substance.

We're eagerly awaiting more information on the Lamborghini Huracn Performante, but in the meantime check out the teaser video below.
