Harry Metcalfe has recently put together the new Huracan exotic ride and his personal Lamborghini Countach for a very interesting review.
We all know that the Lamborghini Huracan has come as a replacement for the old Gallardo but since it has a lot of things in common with the new Audi R8 generation, just like its predecessor, is it really that good compared to one of its ancestors, the Countach? Well, to be honest, the answer can be at both ends and even if you will probably not agree with what Harry Metcalfe has to say about the subject, it is still worth to take a look at the clip.
The Lamborghini Countach has been produced in just 2,049 units, between 1974 and 1990. The model has a rear mid-engine and rear-wheel drive layout, packing in a 3,929cc engine under its hood in the LP400 version, rated at 370 HP (276 kW), a more powerful 4,754 cc unit in the LP500 S and a 5,167 cc unit in the 5000QV 25th Anniversary. The Countach has been replaced by the Diablo.
The Lamborghini Huracan on the other hand has been shown last year in Geneva and it has a mid-engine and all-wheel drive layout. It is powered by an upgraded version of the old 5.2L V10 engine, rated at 602 HP (449 kW) and 560 Nm (413 lb-ft) of torque. The unit is sending power to the wheels through a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, allowing the model to reach 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.2s and to go up to 325 km/h (202 mph).
