Like many high-performance cars, the Huayra uses dry sump lubrication. This has several key benefits including guaranteeing oil flow even when the car is subjected to extreme lateral acceleration, preventing 'oil surge', which allows the engine to operate more efficiently, while the lack of an oil pan allows the engine mounted lower, lowering the car's centre of gravity and improving handling.
