The successor to Lamborghini’s highest selling car ever, the Gallardo, is the hugely capable and liveable Huracan. Featuring a heavily reworked version of the naturally aspirated 5.2L V10 that we saw in the Gallardo, the all-wheel-drive Huracan LP 610-4 produces a healthy 449kW/560Nm and accelerates to 100km/h in a blistering 3.2sec.
The Lamborghini Huracan continues to build on the Gallardo’s platform of a practical supercar, a notion that almost seems counter intuitive when you consider Lamborghini’s history of making some of the most impractical, jaw-dropping cars in history. That being said, the Huracan’s adjustable nose height (for speed bumps), improved visibility and refined cabin space make it an increasingly livable supercar that can be used for more than just the occasional spirited drive.
The Huracan LP 610-4 stands between a rock and a hard place with the Ferrari 488 GTB and McLaren 570S both vying for supercar shoppers in the $500k circa. In an evolving automotive landscape where reduced displacement and forced induction are the new norm, the Huracan has defied the Ferrari and McLaren in retaining a naturally aspirated engine. The entry-level Lamborghini is likely the final aspirated incarnation before the 5.2L V10 is scrapped in favour of a smaller, turbocharged replacement that will struggle to live up to the audible theatre of the V10.
