    My Huracan Performante (2019)

    Hi guys, sorry that I haven't finished my review of my car yet but there are so many things to consider...I just didn't find the time yet. I hope to finish it in a couple of days, fingers crossed.

    Instead, I am sharing a couple of my recent Italy trip photos with you, nothing special but I hope you like them.

    One thing only: Picked up the car in early May, have now 5600 km Smiley and zero issues. I'm in love. Smiley Smiley

    Re: My Huracan Performante (2019)

    Thanks for the photos . White with black accents  suits this car very well and it looks like you had a great time around the lake .  When I drive with my RS in Italy I don't get much attention on the highway ... as you say, I get lots of people trying to push me away from the left lane when I am already doing 150 or 160 . 

    As to continuously  postponing the report , we have heard that before , ended up not so good smiley

    Christian, don’t waste your time on a detailed report. There are several on line. Instead, enjoy the car and tend to work so that you can pay for it.indecision

    That is funny. Yep, RC calling BS on the Performante and E63, obviously all fake file photos...  kidding, love them and envy you and your rides around Garda-see.

    My wife...we tried to take her C63 S Cab but it didn't fit all the luggage we wanted to take with us (three adults, one adolescent), so she took the E63 instead.

    What say you about the Urus?


    Re: My Huracan Performante (2019)

    White really blends in with the normal cars . I am sure the color helps so much for the non agressive attitude from the public .

    Thanks for the pics

    Everyone says that but I'm not so sure: Rossi has a pretty colorful one and he claims he experienced the same positive reaction.

    However: My sales guy, he recently drove my dealership's Performante for a week (they had to organize various events), says that he only got negative reactions, some even very bad. The car is black and has a tricolore stripe in the middle. My sales guy is the nicest person you'll ever meet, very defensive, not an aggressive driver (I drove "with" him). Smiley

    Also funny: He drives 90% of the time in Strada mode, so he doesn't provoke but I drive 99% of the time in Corsa mode with open exhaust. Smiley So weird.

    So maybe the color plays a big role in the perception of the car, true but I have no clue. Smiley

    JimFlat6:

    What say you about the Urus?

    I love it. Period. Best (sportiest, attractive, whatever) SUV I ever drove.

    Had it for a weekend, would buy it in a second if I had the financial means. Perfect family car, kids loved it.

    Sounds like a real Lamborghini, very good setup but the car we had with us had the new (street legal!) Akrapovic sport exhaust (9k EUR option I think) installed and I didn't like it. It changes the V8 sound to some screaming "don't know what" sound, not my cup of tea. I prefer the original setup.

    The upcoming new Audi RSQ8 with 610 hp (same engine as Urus but a bit down-tuned) could be an interesting alternative to the Urus, especially when considering the huge price difference between both.

    Re: My Huracan Performante (2019)

    Forgot to tell you, guys: I had the chance to drive the new Aventador S and it was the biggest disappointment. 

    Before you get upset with me (yes, the Aventador has always been my dream car but I never owned one), keep in mind that I still think the Aventador looks amazing, it is a piece of art in the sports car world. The details are so beautiful, even if some parts of the car and especially the interior look outdated.

    So why was it a disappointment? Well:

    1. Gearbox still jerky (really!), especially in Strada auto mode. If you like to mimic a bobblehead, you'll enjoy it though. 

    2. Even in Corsa mode, the shifting is no real fun, the jerkiness feels more like some sort of lag, it is difficult to explain. The gearbox is fast but it just doesn't feel right.

    3. Under 6000 rpm, the Aventador S isn't really loud...or better said...it doesn't create much emotions with the exhaust sound. In the Huracan Performante or Evo, you get goosebumps slightly over 2000 rpm. In the Aventador S, the (exhaust) fun starts at around 6000 rpm and actually is really enjoyable over 7000 rpm only. Now I guess we all know why Aventador S drivers rev their cars that high at stop lights or in city centers. They want to hear something. At all.  In comparison: Gercollector had his Aventador SV with him and it sounded insane, even at (slightly) lower rpms.

    Definitely not a car for me. yes

    What I liked? Well:

    1. Very comfortable ride, even in Corsa mode. Easy to drive (seriously!), steering setup very good but a bit on the light side for my taste, close to the Evo, maybe a little bit lighter.

    2. Size of the car didn't pose any issue, actually it felt quite nimble and "small". I don't get why some owners or people who test-drove the car criticize the size. You really don't feel it, neither do you feel the weight (I guess the RWS does some wonders here).

    3. Looks: Oh boy, where do I start? The engine bay alone is a piece of art.

    Conclusion: I am happy I didn't even consider the Aventador, the Huracan Performante "fits" me and my driving style perfectly. If I wouldn't have the Performante, I would have gone for the new Evo. Without a single doubt.

    That is a very interesting comparison Smiley How did the engine feel and how quick was the car?


    Re: My Huracan Performante (2019)

    My Performante felt quicker, so did the Evo... The Aventador S isn't exactly lightweight, I think the extra power only comes in effect at speeds over 200 kph.

    What did I tell you last year ? But you've become way too biased lately and couldn't tell the difference between an Aventador and a Huracan.....because Lambo vroooom vroooom, I too almost fell for it Smiley

    This also applies on all Aventadors not just the S, the loudness will not make up for the terrible drive and drama free ride, they should've stuck an Audi badge on it instead Smiley

    This car is also very harsh on the brakes and tires, it can match the  G-Class in eating up the pads quickly  Smiley


    Re: My Huracan Performante (2019)

    Little simplistic comparison but nicely filmed on these roads.
