5.2 Litre Petrol
Lifting Front Suspension
Lamborghini is one of the most evocative names in the automotive world and the Lamborghini Huracan supercar is the latest model tasked with cashing in on the Lambo legend.
There is some recogniseable Audi switchgear in the interior, but quality is right up there with anything Ferrari or McLaren can produce - and the V10 howl from the exhausts is as theatrical as it gets.
The Huracan isn’t one of Lamborghini’s most outlandish shapes, but it’s a beautiful piece of design nonetheless. The wedge-like profile picks up where the Gallardo left off, while the front end gets an extra dose of aggression with a full-width lower grille and slim horizontal headlights.
At the rear four-exhausts at the outer edges emphasise the car’s width while an intricate honeycomb grille mesh picks up on a hexagonal them that’s runs throughout the car.
Most controls, including headlight and indicator switches have been moved to the steering wheel, while a 12.3-inch TFT screen behind the wheel can be configured in a variety of ways to show your speed, revs, sat-nav and audio information.
Build quality sets new standard in the supercar class, while Lamborghini continues the aeronautical theme from the Aventador with a fighter jet-style flick-up cover for the ignition button.
