Driving

What is it like to drive?

In a very un-Lambo manner, the first thing you notice is how well the Huracan rides, how well mannered it is. At a motorway lick the soundtrack is oddly anodyne, sounding busy not ballsy, while the suspension isolates bumps, thumps and staves off surface irregularities ably. Yes, a plush Lambo. All very comfortable and pleasant. All very unexpected. 

Get it on a great piece of road and you uncover another side to its personality. The naturally aspirated V10 conjures music from its mechanics, and hurls itself forwards in a vicious lunge. All the components feel well calibrated, making the Huracan an easy car to get to grips with. Traction is boundless (the torque split is 30:70, but 100 per cent can go through the rear if required), and although not as sharp as the Ferrari, or punchy as the McLaren, it’s convincing enough to sit at the top table.
