Thrilling drama from Lamborghini

The Gallardo was Lamborghini’s most popular car ever in Britain, and we’ve now had a chance to drive its replacement, the Huracán, on British roads, says Luke Madden in AutoExpress.

Can it continue the success story? It certainly looks the part: it’s gorgeous, compact and edgy, and turns heads as you drive down the street. And it feels just as brutally fast as you’d expect.

The 5.2-litre engine produces 602bhp, which results in a 0-62mph sprint time of 3.2 seconds and a top speed of 202mph.

However, it’s up against some stiff competition in the form of the Ferrari 458 and McLaren 650S, and the understeer and impractical cabin mean it’s not ultimately as rewarding to drive as they are.

The Huracán is easy to rub along with, says Matt Prior in Autocar, yet exciting and engaging on many levels.

“Take it as read that it’s hugely enjoyable and always dramatic. But the thing is that when the competition is as complete as the McLaren 650S and a Ferrari 458 Italia, it feels like you can afford to be picky.”

The differences between them are small, but the Lambo’s rivals just edge it. The Huracán may lose out to its rivals in some areas, but supercars are about more than such calculation, says Charlie Turner in Top Gear.

They’re about drama, too, and the Huracán continues the Lamborghini tradition of delivering high theatre.

“The more time I spent with the car, the more I loved it, and that sophisticated simplicity masks a car that oozes adrenaline from every pore.” The V10 is a masterpiece, “delivering the life and soul of the Lamborghini experience”. The Huracán is a “mighty thorn in the side of the opposition”.
