Pope Francis got a Lamborghini Huracan last year with a one-off design just for him. But what’s a pope going to do with a Huracan? Floor it down the streets of Vatican City, putting the fear of God in everyone? Of course not. The pope is going to auction it for charity, which he did. It sold for almost $1 million.
The President is a reality show host and the Pope is selling cars. 2018 is weird.
If it looks like part of that Lamborghini Huracán was on fire at some point, it’s because it was. Luckily, the fire has since been put out and all is (relatively) right again in the world.
The sheer number of automotive YouTube channel proves it’s not hard to mount a GoPro to a car and pretend you’re bigger than an influencer with a pocket-sized camera. But for bigger projects, a 610-horsepower, 200 mph Lamborghini Huracan rig is a nice alternative.
Audi’s head of research and development announced that there’s no new Audi R8 in the works to replace the current one when it phases out in 2020. This isn’t the first time I’ve heard that the R8 is dying, and I don’t think things look good for it.
Perhaps the best part of the Lamborghini Huracán is that it’s still powered by a naturally aspirated V10 engine. Once plentiful, naturally aspirated engines have now become a rarity. Will the Huracán’s replacement keep to that idea? Sure, if Lamborghini gets its way.
We knew it was going to happen, but here it is anyways: the 2019 Lamborghini Huracán Performante Spyder. Yet another version of the good ol’ Huracán, just without a roof and much lighter.
He’s right, some do say it’s art, but this looks more like revenge. And taking out your vengeance by taking a car key to somebody’s paint job? That’s, like, one of the worst things you can do to a car.
When I see things like bedazzled iPhone cases, I scoff because they look like trash. But this bedazzled Lamborghini Huracán? This is very much my shit.
A company called Ares is out to reskin the Lamborghini Huracan to look like a “modern” DeTomaso Pantera, pop-up headlights and everything. How could you ever look at a Huracan the same?
If you’re driving around in a stolen car and would prefer not to get caught (note: don’t do this), the best way to do that is to not attract attention. That would include not asking others for money to fill up a Ferrari 458 at the gas station, since your average Ferrari owner likely, um, wouldn’t.
What do you give the pope, who already has a lot of things? A rear-wheel drive Lamborghini Huracan, of course.
It’s readily apparent that electrification is the immediate future of cars, and more than likely our gateway drug to full-on electric cars going mainstream. And that trend may be fine. It’s hard to argue against SUVs and sedans and even trucks going hybrid; they’re normal cars, so why not? But what about high-end…
A crash in the early hours of the morning near Miami Beach left a Lamborghini Huracan split completely in half, according to reports. The car caught fire as well, with the front end landing in a nearby parking lot and the back half coming to a stop in the middle of the road.
Everyone knows that to beat a competitor, you either have to work really hard or cough up the money to take a shortcut. The second option is easier.
Canadian record producer, DJ and Ferrari-troller Deadmau5 (pronounced “dead mouse” and not “dead-mao-five”) keeps up a pretty eclectic car collection. And by eclectic I don’t mean the cars are weird and funky. I mean he customizes them all weird and funky and that’s what makes them wonderful.
I once sat around a table with senior U.S. brass from Audi and was laughed at for asking if the brand would ever introduce a drift mode like many of its rivals. Well now rumors and teases indicate Audi will instead offer an R8 that’s always in drift mode with a rear-wheel drive model. Who’s laughing now?
Remember that crazy-ass off-roading supercar concept Audi showed off back in 2013? It was called the Nanuk and had a V10 diesel, and was essentially a lifted and toughened R8 or something. Well now the rumor mill claims the concept has been kicked over to Lamborghini to become a real thing in the form of a Huracan—now…
When I was a kid, my dad would build control panels out of cardboard, set them up under our dinner table and made me a spaceship. I spent hours “flying” that heap of recycling and I’ll never forget how fast and futuristic I imagined I could be. The cockpit of the Lamborghini Huricán is the closest I’ve felt to outer…
No tire kickers, no low-ballers, they know what they have.
