    I prefer the RWD Huracan too, but having seen the Performante ...

    Drive both back to back, the LP580 and the LP610 and you'll notice quite a difference. 

    The LP580 feels (not that it actually is) a tiny bit more agile in curves but traction is an issue, like it or not.

    driving them in April ... in Imola Smiley

    580-2 is preferable from a steering purity perspective

    So, when RC talks about traction, I can well imagine what he means by it and my desire for all I can get of it.  I don't like spooky handling cars on the track and especially on the street.  Any peculiarity that limits my personal safety, I avoid.  

    I know that sounds stupid from a guy who drives 911s, but 911s don't lie about what they are about to do next.  That's also the reason I feel no nostalgia for my former Carrera GT.  The 918 is SO less spooky to drive that for me it makes all the difference in the world.  I like traction.

    You should really try a Huracan...just for the fun of it. You'd be surprised. Or a R8 V10 Plus, whatever is easier to achieve. Wonderful sportscars and so much fun.

    Yes, there will be always a 911 in my garage as well, I just love the 911 and it's very specific drive feel and behavior. 

     

    No, Mike is a tall guy, won't fit in a Huracan unless someone chopped him to pieces.

    Hardly!  The convertible Huracan is even worse for taller drivers than the coupé because Lamborghini strangely added a deeper rear bulkhead that restricts aft seat movement.  


    Re: Lamborghini Huracan and variants

    RC:
    noone1:

    When people need extra pads for your seats, you know you've screwed up the seats.

    580 is definitely the Huracan to have IMO. Still as much of a Huracan as any other, front and rear look better, and costs much less.

    No, it isn't. Even with AWD, especially in this weather right now, the ESP lamp sometimes comes on.

    Traction issues take a lot of fun away, unless you want to go sideways all the time. Smiley

    My Lambo dealer (who is also my Audi dealer Smiley) says that the LP580 barely sells. After test-drives, people usually order the LP610-4.

    i can't understand why. the 610-4 has horribly heavy steering. takes out all the fun for me. i'd rather have traction issues on wet roads than the feelingless steering all the time. not a fan of AWD.

    I wouldn't be that sure about it though: My sales guy is 1.95 m and he fits in my R8 quite well (which surprised me too).

    Indeed. Starting with MY 2016, the Huracan got the same Dynamic steering the R8 got, the second or third generation (cannot remember anymore, discussed this with an Audi Sport engineer who was, surprisingly, also pretty well informed about the Huracan, maybe he "does" both brands when he is out at dealers).

    I like the Dynamic Steering a lot (reviewers seem to either hate or love it) but I can see where the problem is when the steering changes at certain speeds and in certain driving modes. It is razor sharp though and whenever I drive my 991.1 GTS (no Powersteering Plus) after the R8, in the beginning I always have the feeling that something is wrong with the steering. Smiley

    The rear wall had to be moved forward as there needs to be space for the roof mechanism to fold into. The Gallardo spyder was exactly the same as was the Ferrari F430 spider etc.

    Re: Lamborghini Huracan and variants

    The rear firewall considerably limits the rake angle of the seat backs compared to the coupe which has the rear parcel shelf space that the seats can be reclined into. The actual travel of the seat base is likely exactly the same in both cars but taller drivers will be forced to sit more upright in the spyder which will bring their eyeline much closer to the top of the windscreen.

    Re: Lamborghini Huracan and variants

    I had the same issue in my original model R8 if I used the luggage set that fitted onto the rear shelf. It forced me to sit with the seat backrest in a more vertical position and that was less comfortable for me compared to how I would position the seat normally. This photo shows the effect of losing the "shelf" space in the coupe with the luggage in place. Without it in place the seat backrest can be reclined quite some way so presumably the R8 spider also suffers reduced range of seat adjustment for taller drivers as it too has the firewall moved forwards to accommodate the folded roof.

    Re: Lamborghini Huracan and variants

    I don't know why the Huracan and R8 are so heavy, yet they see to offer worse storage space than Ferrari and McLaren.

    Can you fit two cabin trolleys and even two small bags behind the seats on the bottom in the 488 or any McLaren? Smiley Then add the front luggage compartment which fits another cabin trolley plus one or two smaller bags.

    Never checked luggage room on the 488 or McLaren, so I don't have a clue.

    Weight? Well...this is a cost and comfort/safety thing.

    How many airbags does the 488 or a McLaren have? Front- and side airbags? Smiley

    R8 has front, side, knee and head airbags. Just one example.

    I am 1.78m tall, not very tall but if I keep the roof on, my hair would brushes the roof liner. And I already had the seat all the way back and leaning maximum. If I keep a baseball cap on then I won't touches the roof.

    To be fair, the track there doesn't favor powerful cars and the results would have been different with the Huracan LP610-4 (AWD). This track clearly favors AWD, the F-Type SVR was only 0.8 seconds slower than the Porsche and the Lampe.

    The Mazda MX-5 is only 6.8 seconds slower than the 991.2 Carrera S, the Range Rover Sport SVR only 7.1 seconds.

    Or to get an even better perspective of the track: The new Panamera 4S (not even the Turbo) is only 1.7 seconds slower than the Carrera S.

    I'd rather say that this test was more embarrassing for the tested BMW M2. The Panamera 4S was almost a second faster. Smiley
