Is it really too much to ask?
We love the new Lamborghini Huracan. Just love it. Pictures alone don’t do it justice. You really have to see it in person to fully appreciate its sensuous exterior, fighter jet-like interior, and the way that V10 just stares back at you, daring you to blink first. Like the Aventador, the Huracan comes standard with all-wheel-drive. And like the Audi R8, it comes with a quick-shifting dual-clutch. So yeah, Lamborghini has, more or less, fully adapted Audi’s philosophy with the Huracan.
We’re not complaining, though. That’s a very a good thing. However, there’s nothing wrong with some old school charm. Nothing at all. And that brings us to our point: Lamborghini ought to build a Huracan variant that would in effect be the successor to the Gallardo Valentino Balboni Edition. That means RWD and a six-speed manual. Ferrari doesn’t even have that combo anymore. Forget the mainstream, and remember all those Lamborghini enthusiasts who’ve stuck by the brand for all those years, good and bad. And remember there are still plenty out there who crave manuals and tire smoking burnouts.
