‘16 LAMBORGHINI HURACÁN SPYDER: AWESOME!

The Huracán Spyder is the only way to fly, blogs Dan Scanlan. Nothing beats the sound of a mid-engine Supercar. So when Lamborghini introduced the V-10 Huracán, we couldn’t wait to drop its top and check it out. The wait was worth it. We let its naturally-aspirated, 610-horsepower 5.2-liter V-10 sing and still heard the Aventador with a 740-horsepower V-12 hammering away in front of us down a sunny Florida road. Say buona giornata (good day) to the Huracán Spyder. A Lamborghini Huracán Sp...

‘14 LAMBORGHINI AVENTADOR LP 700: BADASS SUPERCAR!

Dan Scanlan checks out Lambo’s 700-horsepower raging bull…and he wants one! It was this simple. I was pointed to a Rosso Lamborghini Aventador LP 700 and asked,  “Would you like a drive?” The coastal Florida roads outside the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance were thick with traffic, and worse, Highway Patrol and local deputies. They were hungry, looking for fools dumb enough to nail a 700-horsepower Lamborghini on their home turf after a day of snacking on new Porsches, AMG Mercedes-B...
