Take a deep breath, because it will hit hard. You have before you the Rayo, a Lamborghini Huracán that has spent all its savings on protein shakes and cosmetic surgery, with a spectacular goal in sight.
By the time you recover from the images of the bodywork, let’s start by talking about the guts. The V10 5.2 had two turbos added by the Americans from Underground Racing to… TRIPLE power: 1,900 hp.
And it’s not just to afford a moment of fame on Youtube by spraying a measuring bench. No, the goal here is to cross the 300 mph (482 km / h) barrier. Something for which Bugatti took years of calculations, but when you want …
This is where the new carbon fiber bodywork with Miuresque accents comes into play, the work of British bodybuilder Envisage on order from 7X Design. Because the power is not enough to flirt with 500 km / h (50% more than a production Huracan…): the aerodynamics must follow. The “long tail” fuselage, the plunging muzzle and the almost smooth engine cover above a huge diffuser allow the Cx to go from 0.39 to 0.28.
“We are delighted to have played such a decisive role in the development of the remarkable Mayo from 7X Design,” said Tom Strafford, CEO of Envisage. This car is an extremely exciting and unique creation and I am immensely proud of the work of our talented team, masters in the art of taking a customer’s design and then bringing that vision to life as faithfully and with the best possible quality. “
“The best possible quality” is always welcome on a car that prides itself on getting you at 480 km / h. Chick?
