Those dreaming of a soul-less, Earth-friendly electric Lamborghini could just cut out the nonsense. 

It's not happening anytime soon in large part as Lamborghini's are meant to have souls.

"With a super sport car it's all about DNA, the sound is one of the fundamentals -- I think we need to wait a few years before electric car technology is suitable for super sport cars," Lamborghini Chief of R&D Maurizio Reggiane told TheStreet in an interview on Wednesday. Reggiane also said getting the right weight ratio is also a consideration when thinking about a possible electric Lamborghini. 

To be sure, Lambo's latest exotic supercar isn't shy to send some bold messages while going up and down a block. The Huracan Performante is 40 kilograms lighter than a standard Huracan coupe, while also being more powerful. It churns out 640 horsepower from a 5.2 liter V10 engine, up from 610 horsepower in the standard Huracan. Top speed: 202 mph.

The Performante could also lay claim to a splashy record.
The car set a lap record in October 2016 of 6:52:01 minutes at the Nurburgring racetrack in Germany, five seconds faster than the previous record holder in the Porsche 918 Spyder. People can get their hands on the Performante this summer for a modest price of $274,390.
