Dropped jaws, pointed fingers, and raised mobile phones are only a few of the reactions that every Huracán driver will see during an outing in the slab-sided $295,000 exotic. Of course, turning heads and being the center of attention — the eye of the hurricane, so to speak — are very much an important part of Lamborghini ownership.
There is no denying that the Italian automaker has spent the past 53 years building some of the world’s most powerful and radically styled — let’s throw in ostentatious, too — sports cars. Its past achievements have included such memorable coupes as the Countach, Diablo, and Aventador, yet, despite an extensive racing heritage, Lamborghini has continuously failed to deliver a road car that can be considered an equal to the world’s best driver’s cars. And I, too, have supported the consensus that all production series Lamborghinis have fallen short in some way or another.
