Wheels24 contributor Calvin Fisher recently got to witness pure supercar fitness with a drive in the new Lamborghini Huracan Perfomante.

"It’s a R6.1mil supercar that had me catching feelings before I even climbed into the driver’s bucket seat," said Fisher.

Indeed, it features Lamborghini's most powerful naturally aspirated 5.2 litre V10 engine yet. That means 470kW and 600Nm and with that, a top speed of 325km/h. More importantly, it will sprint to 100km/h in just 2.9 seconds. And to 200km/h in 8.9 seconds. And that is just, incredibly fast.

Our contributor chose the Grigio Titan or grey car, as opposed to the Verde Mantis (green) and Rosso Mars (red) models.

We reckon he chose wisely. What do you think?
