now I’ve woods the drywall needs for some time this is the Lamborghini Huracan perform on t think RS version of their smallest sports car now I’m not a big fan of the Huracan I think it’s pretty compromised but I think the ending is magnificent and for this version they’ve now got 640 horsepower from that v10 less weight special chassis faster give up stickier Corsa tyres from Pirelli and some active aerodynamics so this is very trick this is the car that broke depression car luck record of the Nurburgring and it’s a Boxster let’s have one lap around this or it does the engine is magnificent really both so what’s it like around Knockhill this has technical circuit isn’t breaking up get it turned in 3-1 miss my pegs a bit I don’t mind for doors very helpful here a bit of understeer but then you can neutralize it with the gas pedal over this chicane mega let it run traction control is intervening so what I’ve got is a chassis that is quite on the ground beginning of a pressure it understands I can with the throttle on the exit I get a bit of oversteer I think I might actually switch everything off see if we can help ourselves a bit there I think we might have a bit more fun that we have No see Egypt is fast but not quite Porsche fast still feels fundamentally four-wheel driven to be there is this just slow frustration that I can’t get the power down the way I want to but this is by far and away the best ammo I’ve driven in a long long time it’s more neutral gonna focus there there on the exit and you can play with the throttle a bit it’s a breaking dancing we can get this apex yeah Randy it’s that it’s a great engine it really is normally aspirated I was doing you can muscle the car and it’s a lot more fun than I’d expected but it still feels for them that does limit it slightly but yeah Lamborghini well duh show me you got a sense of humor well of all these spoiled cars this is proper driver’s car and to make a proper driver’s car Lamborghini really has gone to town on the hurricane the most obvious change is that huge rear wing which works alongside an active Aero management system flaps can open in the front intake which alter the airflow and stall the rear wing for maximum speed then they can shut our maximum downforce for cornering working alongside a sticky thready quarter tire and another 30 horsepower that’s now six hundred and forty and all from that gorgeous normally aspirated v10 the improvement in lap time is remarkable just see the sub seven-minute lap record it set at the Nurburgring but this car is about much more than just lap times it reminds us that Lamborghini does care about driving as much as being seen in something outrageous look you
