It’s not easy handling all that potential on a wet race track.
To the non-enthusiast, there's scant difference between Ferrari and Lamborghini, but the fact of the matter is that the two companies couldn’t be less alike. Sure, both build two-door cars that are low to the ground, have their engines in the middle (in most cases), and look both brash and gorgeous, but the philosophies between their respective founders couldn't be more different. Enzo Ferrari is well known for his love of motor racing. In fact, he was completely addicted to it.
So much so that he only sold his cars to the public when he learned he could fund his racing team with the profits. On the other hand, Ferruccio Lamborghini hated racing, only founding his company when he bought a Ferrari and found it to be too aggressive and spartan for comfortable road use. That philosophy reins at Lamborghini no longer, having died after the Murcielago.
That's when the automaker's owner, Volkswagen, decided that its subsidiary needed a swift kick to the rear. Horsepower has become much easier to add to a car, but that wasn’t the solution. What Lamborghini needed was control, so it relinquished its comfort oriented behavior and was honed for the track. Skip a few steps ahead of that and you reach the Lamborghini Huracan GT3. This stripped out rear-wheel drive bastion of performance is so unrestrained that we have a hard time hearing Auto Express presenter Steve Sutcliffe trying to speak over the shouting 5.2-liter V10. Audio aside, we were hard pressed to learn anything about the car or be won over during the ensuing review.
