2015 Lamborghini Huracan: Overview

What’s New for 2015?

The 2015 Lamborghini Huracan is all new for the latest model year. It’s the long-awaited replacement for Lamborghini’s popular Gallardo sports car.

What We Like

Look-at-me styling; amazing performance; excellent handling; high-tech features

What We Don’t

Typical supercar complaints: not very practical; poor fuel economy; highly expensive to buy and own

Overview

The Lamborghini Huracan is one of the most impressive high-performance sports cars on the market. Then again, it should be, since it replaced Lamborghini’s iconic Gallardo sports car after that model’s highly praised 10-year production run.

Let’s start with what makes the Huracan so good. Most obvious is its styling, which looks like a modern take on the Gallardo’s aging but beautiful appearance. The good parts are all still there, including the wedge shape, the bold headlights and the traditionally wide Lamborghini rear end. Overall, we love it.

We also love what’s under the hood. The Huracan uses a 602-horsepower 5.2-liter V10 that’s mated to standard all-wheel drive and a new 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The new transmission helps the new Lambo solve a huge flaw of the Gallardo’s: that clunky E-gear automatic. The new system works much better, bringing the car to 60 miles per hour in a shade over 3 seconds and to a top speed of more than 200 mph.

Our only gripes about the 2015 Lamborghini Huracan? One is its cost: The high-performance sports car starts at an amazing $238,000 with shipping, and that’s before options, which are plentiful. We’re also not fond of its low-slung design for practical matters, such as entering driveways or staying clear of curbs. And it’s hard to be impressed with 14 miles per gallon in the city and 20 mpg on the highway. Mostly, though, we’re jealous that we’ll probably never have one in our garage.
