My take on the huracan

I will keep this short. The Lamborghini Huracan is a much better car in all regards compared to the Gallardo but I kind of miss all the things that were wrong with the Gallardo.

After every ride in a Gallardo I would get out with bleeding ears from the loud V10, a sweaty back from the poor noise isolation, aching legs from the lack of space and a neck nearly snapped by the gearbox. And the 'dynamics' as car journalists call it, weren't that great either. But despite its shortcomings the level of drama and excitement was hard to top - in other words I always wanted to have a go in the Gallardo again regardless if it was a top of the range LP570 Superleggera or a first gen Gallardo.

With the Huracan Lamborghini addressed all these issues - the gearbox is very smooth, the noise in the cabin is dimmed, the seat doesn't get up to 40C anymore and it handles a lot better. Yes, it looks great but somehow I really miss the drama and the shortcomings of the Gallardo. Lamborghini built a better car in all regards but is it a better Lamborghini? My answer is no. It is too much like a Porsche 911 and too little like a real Lamborghini.
