Huracan | Cars
Lamborghini. That's a name that should send shivers down your spine....in a good way!
For me, I have always thought of Lamborghini as the craziest supercars on the plant, built in a shed by a crazy Italian. Ferruccio Lamborghini was that man and the first of the crazy cars was the unforgettable Miura with it's fantastic looks and it's insanely sounding V12 engine. The world of bullfighting is a key part of Lamborghini's identity, as it was Ferruccio's interest that would give you the iconic emblem for this historic company. A Lamborghini has at some point been the pin up on everyone’s wall and thanks to the design tastes of Marcello Gandini of Bertone who gave us not only the Miura, but the Countach and Diablo to name a few!
The new Lamborghini Huracan is a statement and a piece of engineering beauty. It's insane look's and just the sound of that growling V10 is enough to make your heart skip a beat! The one thing everyone agrees on is that the engine feels as though it has been touched by the hand of God. The 5.2-litre, naturally aspirated V10 is a masterpiece that can make a grown man cry.
There isn't in my eyes, another manufacturer that offer's an ownership experience quite like that of Lamborghini. For me the Huracan's sheer extravagance, visual antagonism and wonderful mechanical sincerity put it right up there with the very best Lamborghini's of all time.
This is defiantly a once in a life time opportunity to go wild and feel young again!

I had a surprise birthday present of a Triple Premier Supercar experience with a Ferrari 458 Italia,Lamborghini Huracan and McClaren 570s at Castle Combe. The day was excellent but the true delight was the Huracan. What be can you say about a loud and outrageous looking V10. It certainly lived up to my expectations. The instructor was wonderful and made sure you got to enjoy the drive by excellent tuition. If you can afford extra laps take them as the car comes to you the more you drive it. The other two cars are also amazing but it must be the small boy in me and the Huracan wins the day. Well done Car Chase Heros.Andrew Chamberlin
