The Lamborghini Huracán Isn’t Your Average Luxury Sports Car

2017 Lamborghini Huracan The Auto Gallery

There are high-performance, luxury sports cars — and then there are supercars. While there’s a thin line that separates the two classes of vehicles, the Lamborghini Huracán asserts itself in the latter group for a number of reasons. Lamborghini has always created some of the most soul-stirring supercars, but the new Huracán truly stands out with its exotic styling, bind-spending performance, and ability to make anyone fall in love with cars.

With the Huracán’s unparalleled versatility, usability, and ability, the supercar can traverse a variety of driving conditions without compromising the raw sense of speed that Lamborghini is known for. Whether drivers opt for the Huracán Spyder, Coupe, or rear-wheel-drive (RWD) LP580-2, individuals behind the wheel of the Italian supercar are in for a treat. And as the video below reveals, the Huracán—in any one of its trims—can be enjoyed in any location.

While supercars have a bad reputation for not being able to be used in everyday situations, this video reveals the entire Huracán being pushed in different settings.

A driver pushes the Huracán Spyder around Western Portugal; another drives  the Huracán Coupe around the Italian Alps;  the Huracán RWD sprints around North France. While the Huracán drivers in the Italian Alps and North France are enjoying pushing the Huracán to its limits on windy roads, the driver in Western Portugal still finds a way to enjoy the supercar throughout the city. All three drivers may be in different locations, but they’re all aiming for a place where the Huracán really shines—on the track.

The Lamborghini Huracán Is a Special Beast

With the majority of automakers looking towards turbocharging for emissions, Lamborghini has found a way to continue the trend of naturally-aspirated engines in its supercars. Thanks to a 5.2-L V10 engine, the entire Huracán range produces an incredible amount of power to tackle a variety of driving situations.

The Huracán LP610-4 (coupe) and Spyder put down 602 hp and 413 lb.-ft. of torque down through an all-wheel drive system. With help from a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, the coupe can get to 62 mph in just 3.2 seconds, while the Spyder can do the same run in 3.4 seconds. The more enthusiast-oriented Huracán LP580-2 (rear-wheel drive model) has the same V10 engine as the other models, but it has been detuned to 572 hp and 398 lb.-ft. of torque. Unlike the other Huracán models, the LP580-2 sends power to its rear wheels but still manages to get to 62 mph in 3.4 seconds.

There’s no denying the fact that the Huracán is insanely quick, but the supercar is also fast in a straight line. The coupe has a top speed of 202 mph, the Spyder tops out at 201 mph, and the LP580-2 can get to 199 mph. Either way you cut it, the Huracán is a supercar that will continue to impress after continued use.
