This is what it’s like to drive a Lamborghini Huracan fast!
But don’t expect any fast cornering because we are talking about a drag strip and several fans of the supercar who have gotten the opportunity to ride on the passenger seat at high speeds during a Lamborghini Cape Town and Last Lion Lifestyle organized event. The exotic vehicle has been driven by South African racer David Perel and this was actually the first time he has gotten his hands on a road-legal Lamborghini, despite driving the Gallardo for the Lamborghini Bonaldi Motorsport in the Italian GT.
Lamborghini has pulled the wraps off the Huracan back in 2014, during the Geneva Motor Show, in a world premiere. This is the successor of the Gallardo and it is currently being offered in a single body style, a 2-door coupe, with a longitudinal mid-engine and all-wheel drive layout. The supercar stands at 4,459 mm in length, 1,924 mm in width and 1,165 mm height, weighing in 1,422 kg. The Huracan has a 5.2 liter naturally aspirated V10 engine, used on its predecessor, which has been improved and it is now capable of putting down a total of 602 HP (449 kW) at 8,250 rpm and 560 Nm (413 lb-ft) of torque, available at 6,500 rpm. Power is sent to the AWD system through a 7-speed dual clutch transmission allowing it to reach 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.2 seconds and a top speed of 325 km/h (202 mph).
