It is hard to believe that Lamborghini, one of the most notable car manufacturers in the industry, actually started out as a tractor company in 1948. Yet more than half a century later, they are known for producing some of the most elegant and powerful supercars in the world.
This month’s test drive is the all-new Huracan Evo. I've never had quite the affinity for Lamborghini as I do for Ferrari. Maybe it was the colors, or maybe it was the sheer amount of them that always seem to be featured in Hip-Hop music videos. However, my opinion of this brand has been completely revamped after driving the HuracanEvo.
At first glance, the body lines are alluring, evoking true luxury. Even stationary, this car screams speed; driving one amplifies the feeling exponentially.
The interior is beautifully done with a touch screen interface that displays everything from vehicle telemetry to media preferences. The steering wheel is a motorsport lover’s dream with the Alcantara accents. Despite evoking a race car, it is still an approachable vehicle.
The seats are incredibly comfortable and the outside visibility is impressive for a supercar. The starting procedure in this car alone is an experience in itself: the flip of a toggle switch feels like starting a jet engine. With the push of a button, the 630HP V10 comes to life.
If there is one aspect about a car that I always yearn for, it's a proper exhaust note. If Lamborghinihas got one thing that sets them a bar above the rest, it is their engine exhaust note. This car quite possibly could be the best sounding supercar I have driven yet. The acceleration is brutally fast, the shifts are lightning quick, and the handling was superb.
Perhaps the most surprising aspect of this car was the fuel consumption. This car gets better gas mileage than most trucks and SUVs. It's also a great car for driving enthusiasts; I could even do a cross-country trip with it.
If you’re looking for a car that changes the perception of how a supercar should sound and drive, take the Huracan Evo for a spin. Just don’t say I didn't warn you when one ends up in your garage.
