Price, fuel economy, range and depreciation

The claimed 20.5mpg combined seems realistic in our experience, and the Huracán RWD manages almost 30mpg at a cruise. Single-digit economy beckons should you unleash its true V10 performance, though.

At £164,400, the RWD is also well priced compared with the F8 Tributo and McLaren 720S, both of which are much more powerful but cost more than £200,000. Equally, the McLaren’s younger sibling, the 570S, is usefully less expensive than the Lamborghini and, although not nearly so eventful, is an even finer tool for drivers, with that wonderful steering.

Lamborghini’s new Sports seats improve the driving position no end. Taller owners shouldn’t think twice.

Unusually for Lamborghini, and perhaps because of the canny pricing, the Huracán Evo RWD is also forecast to hold its value better than most cars from Sant’Agata. For those buying new, it could therefore be one for both the head and the heart.
