Lamborghini Huracan review - can the baby Lambo compete with new age rivals? - Interior and tech

Exciting, exotic and eccentric, the Huracan appeals on character as much as talent

Evo rating
  • V10 powertrain, balance, driver involvement
  • Lacks the handling finesse seen elsewhere in the class

Interior and tech

It has nearly been 20 years since Audi purchased Lamborghini during VW’s spending spree in the late nineties, so it’s not such a surprise to see the Audi influence inside the Huracán. With Lamborghini’s own interpretation of a virtual cockpit, the interior is well built and relatively easy to navigate, although some of its details could be considered overwrought.

A small, central dash mounted screen displays three auxiliary dials, and is housed on top of the now trademark Lamborghini toggle switches. In typical Lamborghini style, the starter button sits underneath a fighter jet style flip-top cover, with the gear selector taking the form of a rocker handle just behind.

If you were after a subtle driving environment, this probably isn’t the supercar for you, but with those German foundations, at will at least work with more alacrity than in Lamborghinis of old. Space is a little hard to come by though, and those steeply raked screens front and rear mean that outward visibility is poor, even by supercar standards. The seats also seem to be in a financial partnership with your local chiropractor, as they seem to be designed more for sustained torture than to seat human beings.
