When I was a kid, my dad would build control panels out of cardboard, set them up under our dinner table and made me a spaceship. I spent hours “flying” that heap of recycling and I’ll never forget how fast and futuristic I imagined I could be. The cockpit of the Lamborghini Huricán is the closest I’ve felt to outer…
No tire kickers, no low-ballers, they know what they have.
The new less weight/more power little Lambo is here, the Huracán Performante. it makes a how-is-this-the-baby-of-the-range 631 brake horsepower and comes with some completely nutty active aero made with forged composite.
FLASH! BANG! ZOOM! THE NEW LAMBORGHINI HURACÁN PERFORMANTE JUST SMASHED THROUGH THE PRODUCTION CAR LAP RECORD AT THE NÜRBURGRING. Holy fuck! Who saw that one coming? YOU DID.
The current Lamborghini Huracán is a lovely and restrained design, about as understated as a 200 mph supercar can be. But a 200 mph supercar shouldn’t be restrained, which is why I’m excited to see the mad scoops and wings of Italdesign’s new Lamborghini-based (and oddly unnamed) custom car.
2016 couldn’t end on a quiet note. No, it had to go ahead and give us another solid candidate for Save of the Year.
Last Friday a Lamborghini Huracán mutilated itself and a Ferrari 458 Italia in a wholly unspectacular low-speed collision. The automotive community has come together, gawked and cried out in unison: “Bummer.”
When you were 13, were you winning your class in global time attack from behind the wheel of a Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo race car? No. You were not, because you are not Steven Aghakhani.
As we like to say here, you’re either a Huracan or a Huracan’t. This is definitely a Lamborghini Huracan, because, well, just look at it. Who doesn’t love a purple supercar with a V-10 engine in it?
“Now I’m going to drive the crap out of this Lamborghini!” may be my new favorite phrase. It’s what the Lamborghini Huracán needs. Deserves. Demands.
This is Lamborghini. A certainty. A possibility? Perhaps more. Could it be more? Maybe it could be more? Or.........less.
For the owner of a Lamborghini Huracan, a $300 ticket sounds like something that can just be brushed off. But when an Australian Huracan owner got a ticket for unnecessary noise last year, he didn’t let it go. Sometimes, he said, “it’s not about the money—it’s about making sure that you stick to your principles.”
Following a collision with another car at a Chicago intersection, a Lamborghini Huracan reportedly slid into a pole and split in half. Videos from the aftermath of the crash show not only the car strewn across the street, but also bystanders extracting a person from inside right before it caught fire.
A lot fucking faster. That’s the answer.
When DUB describes Zevigg’s Huracán as “the first hand-painted Lamborghini” they mean spray-painted. And behold: the second-fastest way to destroy a quarter-million dollar supercar.
GoPro’s latest miracle of the NoseCam brings us a lap around Sebring thanks to a camera stuffed inside Change Racing driver Corey Lewis’ helmet. I have to admit: this looks like a genuinely nice place to sit. The cabin is neatly organized, and the audio is beyond fantastic. Sit back and enjoy a lap of Lambo bliss.
Two turbos on the V10 now dialed to produce about 1,800 horsepower at the wheels, a sequential gearbox and Dodson’s 10 plate clutch. Add drag tires, and what you get is a Huracan running the 1/4 miles in the sevens.
Wider means faster. Possibly.
There’s something vaguely prehistoric about a Lamborghini Huracán GT3 race car with a neon green back window. Lizardlike. Beastly. Photo credit: Lamborghini GT3
