The Lamborghini Huracán is quick. How quick?
Quick enough that if you jumped off a cliff , you wouldn't reach 65 miles per hour quit a soon as the Huracán can do it on a flat stretch of pavement. Car and driver clocked this newest Lambo's 0 to 60 Miles run at 2.5 seconds, is mean that you are basically experiencing acceleration greater than gravity but on a novel new vector — forward, toward the horizon.
Whatever other talents this car possesses, its personality is defined by its straight-line performance. It sucks the wind out of you, as if the V10 engine were vacuuming the exhalations from your chest and catalyzing them into a swelling howl that would drown out an air-raid siren.
The Huracán (pronounced ur-ah-CAN) replaces the Gallardo, a car that enjoyed a 10-year run and more than 14,000 sales — the least expensive Lamborghini was, not surprisingly, the company’s most popular model ever.
The Gallardo was a screaming 200 m.p.h. wedge, but it was hampered by a clumsy 6-speed single-clutch automated manual transmission. You could make a cappuccino in the time it took to shift from first to second, and drink it in the time it took to get into third. There are many differences between the Huracán and its predecessor; the transmission is the most immediately noticeable.
