The new Gallardo returns Lamborghini to the entry-level supercar top table - even if it is a bit play it safe

Good stuff

Stonking engine, impressive road manners, superb brakes, design

Bad stuff

Not quite the hard charger it once was

Overview

What is it?

The replacement for the Gallardo, Lamborghini’s most successful ever car, with over 14,000 sold since 2003. That gives the Huracan a suitably mountainous task, one that Lamborghini has chosen to tackle by playing against type and taking a safe option. The Huracan is no radical reimagining of the modern supercar. There are no hybrid systems here, for instance. In fact what there is, is familiarity. The 5.2-litre V10 is carried over, albeit heavily reworked, and it’s still positioned in the middle of the car and drives all four wheels. Unless you opt for the latest entry-level LP580-2 model, which is rear drive only. 

There's a new seven speed dual-clutch gearbox and an all new chassis, partially constructed of carbon, that’s 50 per cent stiffer than the Gallardo’s. Is that enough to return Lambo’s ‘entry-level’ supercar to the top of the class above the brilliant Ferrari 488 and McLaren 650S?

What's the verdict?

A thorough update of the Gallardo, and good enough to play ball with its rivals.
