Replacing the long-toothed Gallardo sure took Lamborghini a while, but when the Huracan LP 610-4 was launched, it seemed to have been worth the wait and then some. Unfortunately, not every review of the model was as stellar as Lamborghini had hoped, with some journos praising the Huracan’s design, build quality and performance, but also panning its numb electric steering and somewhat disconnected driving feel. Motor Trend’s recent review of the model is at odds with these though. Both Jonny Lieberman and pro driver Randy Pobst almost unanimously praised the Huracan.

In fact, the only quarrel that Pobst had with the car was its anti-lock brakes, but other than that he proclaimed it the best Lamborghini he has ever driven. The car ran around the Big Willow racetrack in just 1:25.17 minutes, faster than a Corvette Z06 with the Z07 package, and a Nissan GT-R Nismo. From all the sports cars that Motor Trend tested there, only the Porsche 918 Spyder is faster.

Powered by a dry-sumped, 5.2-liter, V-10 engine with 601 horsepower and 412 pound-feet of torque, the Huracan LP 610-4 can hit 0-62 mph in 3.2 seconds and has a top speed of over 202 mph. Pobst got it from 0-60 mph in just 2.8 seconds, which is quicker than every other car that MT has tested, sans hypercars like the Porsche 918 Spyder or the Bugatti Veyron.
