MHH - u still sitting this one out :)

Not keen on that colour but car looks great - like all Lambos.
Seats looks the same as SV.  That's probably a deal breaker for me anyway.

I'll wait to see how it drives.

Only downside I can see of the Huracan is that it scrapes where other supercars still have clearance.

Mine's going in for a safety check in the new year, I'll get some pictures of the underside and the sacrificial bumpers. They are very different to any car I've had before - they're not up near the nose / front spoiler, but further back - towards the front suspension.

Positive is that I've not had a single scrape to the actual nosework yet, downside is regular scraping of these bits when hustling along - and two really big 'bang' moments on the tassie trip that sounded like the tub had cracked (following Pete in the McLaren that didn't scrape at the same spots).

Apart from this - the car's just about perfect as a supercar that doubles as a daily driver. More power, less weight and smarter aero will make it a beast ... perfect for track, but if it's more scrapey than the standard it will be a pain for tassie runs or equivalent.
C'mon, do it!

allanuber you can change the springs with aftermarket ones made by Novitec, my 2014 Huracan wasn't bouncy but for some reason the later cars seem to be, they might have softer springs, I drove my friend's on Novitec springs on the track and it felt great, some info in this thread about cost etc.

Thanks Fortis, I'll take a look. Appreciate it.

On track it's fantastic, but it does bottom out and scrape all the time on the road which is where I do much more driving. Ride quality is brilliant in normal conditions ... I guess that's the tough balance to keep.

I'll check out the spring thread and report back  :)

edit....  ah, these are lowering springs and have skidplates added as a purchase option... may not be the answer to my 1st world scraping problem   :) :)
C'mon, do it!

Well this topic has been an interesting read start to finish...

But on the car, they're not really leaving too much of a gap between the Huracan and it's V12 big sister.  I know the Aventador is getting on in years, but if all the hype is real and it's really that good, then there's not really a capability gap between the 2 cars worth 300k if you're in the market for a bull.

Unless you think that V10's are for pussies and the only real Lamborghini has a V12...
