Best Supercars of 2014: Ferrari 458 Speciale Vs. Lamborghini Huracan


This is a tough one.

OK, so the 458 Speciale was unveiled in 2013, but the droptop Aperta variant arrived this year in Paris. Plus, Marcel Lech Photography’s awesome gallery is of a hardtop 458 alongside a Lamborghini Huracan, so deal with it. Compared to the stock 458 Italia, the Speciale is 90 kg lighter, 1.5 seconds faster around Ferrari’s test track, and sprints from 0-62 mph in three seconds flat. The 4.5-liter V8 delivers 597 horsepower and 398 lb-ft of torque, which at 133-hp per liter is the highest horsepower per liter of any naturally aspirated road car ever.

Unveiled in Geneva this year, the Lamborghini Huracan LP 610-4 comes powered by a heavily updated V10 rated at 602 hp and 413 lb-ft of torque, with new direct and indirect injection systems, enabling the supercar to crack 0-62 mph in 3.2 secs, 0-124 mph in 9.9 secs and reach a top speed of over 202 mph. The mid-engined chassis and body panels are a blend of carbon fiber and aluminum, while the styling borrows heavily from the Aventador with a traditional wedge shape, as well as Reventon-inspired lights and hexagonal detail on the engine cover.
