The Lamborghini Huracán both defies description and begs for it. Its sleek, spaceship exterior has come to define the modern supercar for even those who have never driven one. Yet it is that which is indefinable that separates the Huracán from its competitors: the undeniable luxury imprinted in its design, the electric joy derived from turning the key and illuminating the cockpit’s renowned hexagonal features, the driver’s heartbeat that matches the crackles and pops of the exhaust. Perhaps nothing better describes the Huracán than the sheer ecstasy produced by going 0-60 in 2.5 seconds.
Indeed, the Huracán is as powerful as it looks. Its 5.2 liter V10 engine achieves an unthinkable 610 horsepower and a supersonic top speed of 212 mph. But far from being a vehicle only fit for the racetrack, the Huracán was designed with city streets in mind. Its dual clutch transmission is the first of its kind for any Lamborghini, decreasing shift times for a smoother, more comfortable ride.
Not for the reclusive driver, the Lamborghini Huracán is sure to attract attention wherever it goes. Drivers-by will stare, pedestrians will stop in their tracks, photographers will fill their camera rolls; rarely are people face-to-face with the indefinable combination of thunderous power and emphatic luxury. Whether driving to the workplace or a black-tie event, you’re sure to catch people gazing. But in those moments remember to ask yourself: can you blame them?
