Following a brief encounter with the new Lamborghini Huracan in Italy, Autocar’s Steve Sutcliffe now gets a chance to thoroughly examine the V10 supercar on the test track. What he finds doesn’t take away from how good the Huracan is as a road car, but it may change your mind if you were planning to track this car.
Sutcliffe found an inordinate amount of understeer in Lamborghini Huracan, brought on by its all-wheel-drive system and aggressive traction control. That makes the car safe and easy to drive on the road, but kind of frustrating on the track.
Now you may argue that Lamborghini Huracan is not a track car, and you have a point. But this car is a direct rival for the Ferrari 458 which manages to be brilliant on the road and the race track. What’s more, the Huracan is, after all, a 610 horsepower supercar. It is supposed to be good on the track, even if you never use it there.
