Costs & verdict

Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is

If you’re overly worried about costs, then you should probably rethink whether a Huracán is the right car for you. However, even supercar buyers want to know they aren't throwing money down the drain, and Lamborghini's entry level RWD model is competitive on most fronts. It’s usefully cheaper to buy than the rival McLaren 720S, for example, and while it does look very pricey compared with the Audi R8, that Lamborghini badge, general road presence and more heavily tweaked V10 will, for many, be worth the extra.

We'd recommend going for the RWD Evo version; it's easily the cheapest in the range and yet feels barely any slower than the more powerful, four-wheel-drive EVO. It’s also the sweetest riding and sharpest handling Huracán currently on sale. Be aware, though, that while it may be cheaper than its rivals, it isn't predicted to hold its value as well.

Servicing, tyres and insurance are all going to be seriously expensive, too, in keeping with this type of car. At least the Lambo is more generously equipped than many rivals, with leather, clmate control, sat-nav and heated seats all fitted as standard.

Overview

The Lamborghini Huracán Evo is a theatrical masterpiece that delivers breathtaking performance. And and while it does look very pricey compared with the Audi R8, that Lamborghini badge, the more heavily tweaked V10 and the Evo’s sheer road presence will, for many, be worth the extra. Of course, if you’re looking at doing the odd track day or spend every Sunday morning carving up your local country road, then we’d advise you take a look at a 720S – it’s more involving to drive and has higher limits. But if you’re simply after a raw analogue supercar with a great soundtrack, then the Huracán should be right up your street.

  • General sense of flamboyance
  • Features a sharper version of the the R8’s V10 engine
  • Surprisingly easy to drive
  • Slightly blunt handling
  • Pricey next to an Audi R8
  • RWD is a bit snappy on the limit
