It's a souped-up version of the Huracan, which is normally Lamborghini's most attainable car.

In this form, though, it's far more exotic.

The car has about 30 more horesepower than the standard car from its mid-mounted V10.

It also weighs about 90 pounds less, which helps.

The real advantage comes from its trick aerodynamics.

Ducts behind the rear diffuser and before the rear wing, direct air up through and around the aerodynamic surfaces.

These allow Lamborghini to stall out the wings at speed, reducing drag.

The result? More downforce when you want it, less drag when you don't.

And the price for all this? You'll be looking at about $250,000. Better start saving.
