Notes From A Week's Worth Of Car Testing In California

Managing Editor Steven Ewing drove some $2 million worth of new cars while out in California for Monterey Car Week. Here are his notes following an excellent week of driving.

According to the latest rumors, Lamborghini will be unveiling the Huracán Spyder at the Geneva Motor Show, making fans wait nearly eight months from now before they can drop the top on its ten-cylinder supercar.

20

There's a chance that the Audi R8 and Lamborghini Huracan might get the turbocharged and electrically supercharged, 2.5-liter five-cylinder from the Audi TT Clubsport Turbo. The move would be a way to lower their displacement and lower the models' vehicle taxes in China.

The Everyday Supercar

The stunning Huracan replaces the much-loved Gallardo in Lamborghini's lineup. Following our first drive last year, we drive one on our home turf to see how the supercar handles daily life.

Lamborghini has been spied testing a hotter Huracan with what appears to be repositioned exhausts to be more like the GT3 racing version. It's also wearing some competition decals.

Harry Metcalfe loves Lamborghinis. In his latest video, he drives the new Huracan and parks it next to his Countach to see how the two Italians stack up.

12

McLaren and Ferrari may be joining Porsche and Audi in the ~$180k sports car market, but Lamborghini is in no rush to join in. At least not with an entirely new model.

11

Mansory tuned the Lamborghini Huracan to 1,000-plus horsepower and loaded it up with carbon fiber to create the Torofeo, which premiered at the Geneva Motor Show.

14

Any subtlety from the Lamborghini Huracan is completely gone after Mansory gets done with it. The tuners bolt on a turbo to the V10 to bring things up to 838 horsepower and add a carbon-fiber widebody kit.

Hitting The Track In The Race-Ready Raging Bull

Lamborghini turned its Huracán supercar into a circuit-attacking racecar, by way of this LP 620-2 Super Trofeo. We hit the track in the new Raging Bull to see the result of Lambo's more hardcore efforts.

EDM DJ and producer Deadmau5 tweets that he has a Lamborghini Huracan on order that will become the Nyanborghini Purracan. It replaces the Purrari 458 that he had to unbadge and unwrap over a cease-and-desist letter from Ferrari.

Lamborghini is all set to go racing in the 2015 Blancpain Endurance Series in Europe with its new Huracan GT3. Sporting aggressive looks and eye-popping lime green paint, these monsters are going to look great competing on the track.

Our Editors Reflect On Their Favorite Rides From 2014

As the year comes to a close, our editors are all taking time to reflect on the machinery that made 2014 so special, with one simple, open-ended question as the guide: "What's the best car you drove this year?"

Though they are equipped almost exclusively with all-wheel drive, a Lamborghini might not be our first choice to drive in the snow. Not for practical reasons, anyway. But the idea sure does sound like fun – and probably more than a little bit educational, too. That's why Lamborghini established the Winter Accademia.

We Get Schooled In The Art Of Lamborghini Driving

I found it to be a rare, genuinely rewarding educational experience.

The Volkswagen Group supports many racing programs among its various brands, but somewhat surprisingly, Lamborghini is not chief among them. Not by a long shot. But even Lambo is getting in on the action with the upcoming launch of the Huracán GT3 previewed in this latest video clip from testing at the Vallelunga circuit near Rome.

21

We've seen it time and time again, but we never seem to get tired of it. We are referring, of course, to races between supercars and fighter jets. The time-honored tradition has seen a Lamborghini Reventón take on a Panavia Tornado, an SRT Viper line up alongside an F-16, even a Red Bull F1 car tackle an F/A-18 Hornet. But now it's time for the new Lamborghini Huracán to take its turn. And since this contest takes place in Russia, its rival is none other than the Sukhoi Su-30 Flank

With all the versions of the Gallardo that Lamborghini made over the course of that model's dozen year lifecycle, we knew the debut of the new Huracán would only be the start. And now we're getting an idea of what Sant'Agata has in store. Before too long, there'll be a new Spyder, and likely a rear-drive version as well. But racing teams are more eagerly anticipating the new competition versions. There's the new Super Trofeo spec racer that Lambo unveiled in Monterey a couple of weeks ago

Car and Driver threw a leg over the Lamborghini Huracán and rode it hard all around the 16-turn Circuito Internationale Nardò, next to the banked oval that's brought us many a top-speed video. On the way to discovering the bull calf sweetly eclipses the Gallardo it replaces, CD also discovered that – comparing their own tests – it is faster from zero to 60 miles per hour than its paterfamilias, the Aventador.

10

Lamborghini may not offer a manual-transmission option on the new Huracán – so few customers were asking for it on the preceding Gallardo as it was – but don't think that it won't pursue ever more hardcore variants. And that will reportedly include a rear-drive version.

Racing fans, meet Lamborghini's newest track weapon, the Huracán LP620-2 Super Trofeo. Designed for the one-make Blancpain Super Trofeo series, the Huracán picks up where its predecessor, the Gallardo, left off.
