It’s not just that the Lamborghini Huracán looks like a fighter jet. Nor is it because the car’s aluminum structure mixes in carbon fiber to save weight. No, the biggest reason why the Huracán is a street-going F-22 is because it uses actual aerospace components to make it faster and easier to drive. Tucked under the leather-lined cabin, right near the car’s center of gravity, is the LPI, or Lamborghini Piattaforma Inerziale (literally, inertial platform). It’s a black box with three gyroscopes and three accelerometers. Other cars typically only have one gyroscope; fighter jets and fantastic Lamborghinis use three. The extra gyros mean that the motions in pitch, yaw, and roll can be determined exactly. In cars with one gyro, that figure needs to be calculated using other inputs such as wheel speed.
