The disappointment of Europe v America

BMW i8 v Lamborghini Huracan v Ford Mustang v Dodge SRT Hellcat

Take the sophisticated power of a BMW i8 and a Lamborghini Huracan and see how they go against the brawn of a Ford Mustang and a Dodge SRT Hellcat. Imagine you’re doing this and imagine that you’ve got four days and 1300 miles to work out what’s what.

Then imagine you’ve got to publish a video to YouTube that brings your experience to the world, brings us along for the ride.

Imagine how disappointed your friends and family would be if all you came up with was this 3 minute 40 second clip.

We like Car, we think it’s a good publication and while acknowledging they’ve got real magazines to sell we also think they should watch a few Chris Harris videos.

Otherwise they may as well not waste their production resources if this is all they’re going to give us with a tasty set of ingredients like this.

Lamborghini Huracan LP620-2 Super Trofeo revealed

Lamborghini Huracan LP620-2 Super Trofeo

As expected Lamborghini literally took the cover off its new Huracan LP620-2 Super Trofeo in California on the weekend.

As its name suggests the race version of the Huracan produces 620hp and all of it is sent to the rear wheels. It tips the scales at 1270kg (2800lbs) and we think it would be a lot more fun than this understated reveal would indicate.

Turns out that video preview gave us a far better look at the car and all we have from the official source is three pretty crappy pics.

What’s better than seeing and hearing one Lamborghini Huracán on a race track? Hearing six of them. Yes, six! Check out the video after the break to see if you agree.

There’s 60 cylinders and 31.2 litres of capacity pumping out a staggering 3660hp (2688kW), so we’re pretty confident you’ll like what you see.

Lamborghini Huracan ready to march forth

Lamborghini Huracan

We already know what the new 610hp Lamborghini Huracan looks like, but in case we’ve forgotten Sant’Agata’s latest hypercar hasn’t actually made its public debut yet this video teaser has been sent to remind us.

The good news is you only have to wait until 4 March before you can shake the trees and earth and start dancing in the storm!


Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4 revealed

Lamborghini Huracan

Lamborghini has taken the wraps off its Gallardo replacement, the Cabrera. Except it’s not called the Cabrera at all, it’s been named the Huracan.

As is customary, Huracan is named after a bull, this one fought in Spain back in 1879 and apparently he took no crap from those poncey guys waving capes. And with 448kW (610hp) at 8250rpm and 560Nm at 6500rpm you won’t be easily pushed around either.

Coupled to a new 7-speed dual clutch transmission (Lamborghini Doppia Frizione or LDF) and an all-wheel drive system the Huracan brushes off 100km/h in only 3.2 seconds. The double century is knocked off in 9.9 seconds and it has a top speed of 325km/h.

A combination of carbon fibre and aluminium has been used to form the Huracan’s “hybrid chassis” helping to keep the its dry weight to 1422kg. Not superlight by any means, but a power-to-weight ratio of 2.33kg/hp is pretty handy.

The look of the latest beast from Sant’Agata is very much inspired by the outgoing Gallardo. That’s no bad thing as the Gallardo not only looked fantastic—it still looks great today in fact—but it is also Lambo’s highest ever selling model, with more than 14,000 finding homes.

The Huracan will make its full public debut at the Geneva Motorshow in March. Before then, though, it will be shown to select clientele at a series of invite-only preview events.

When the Huracan comes to Australia in the second half of next year it’s expected to be priced from around $430,000. That’s a drop in price of over $100,000 compared with the top-selling Gallardo.
