It's our first chance to test Lamborghini's new 602bhp, V10-engined successor to the Gallardo on UK roads. Is the reputedly more user-friendly Huracán a proper Lamborghini? Steve Sutcliffe finds out.
These are great machines for picking up attractive - if a little foolish - ladies. Any one in any doubt go here:
Give me a 650s please.
Looks - not sure.
Noise - a bit more Audi/fake.
Challenge - clearly diminished.
Humour - gone.
On the track I can appreciate it means it is poor, but wouldn't a cheap trackday toy be better? You can get the Mazda Mx5 3.5 for about £7-10k now and fit the 300bhp BBR turbo, that will give you oversteer, If you crash it then a lot less to pay for.
The Lambo looks better to me than the Mclaren or Ferrari. People buy these cars to look good in, surprise their friends in the passenger seat with acceleration and to impress the girl at the Tesco petrol station. So it fits the bill.
They will even take a corner at 7/10ths once and be mightly impressed :D
Have you seen those youtube video's where a Gallardo cannot even make it around a US interchange with the Yank driver putting it into the central reservation backwards.
No wonder they gave up making it enthusiast friendly. It would be quicker for most folks like this to be honest.
Bloody shame though, pandering to the masses who don't want to drive it, just want to show it.
