And does it have the spirit of the Countach?
For 16 years, the Lamborghini Countach was, without question, one of the most striking supercars on the road. Rear visibility sucked, ground clearance could make ants feel claustrophobic, and it was ridiculously expensive not only to buy but also maintain. And yet to this day, it remains the very definition of a proper supercar. And now that Lamborghini is under control of the massive VW Group, one may wonder whether its latest offering, the Huracan, is nothing more than an Audi R8 with Lamborghini styling.
Its predecessor, the also V10-powered Gallardo, was wonderful, but it had its flaws, namely the gearbox. So has Lamborghini fixed the Gallardo’s shortcomings while also building a supercar that’s outright bonkers? Evo founder Harry Metcalfe goes for a Huracan test drive, and compares its design with his very own Countach QV.
