The Huracán exudes a sense of drama from every angle, including the inside. In the middle of the snug interior, there’s a fighter jet-style starter button that complements the angular design of the switchgear, which in turn mirrors the car’s edgy exterior design. Even the centre of the steering wheel has a distinctive hexagonal design that’s continued on the air vents and instrument binnacle.

For all that style, the digital instrument dials behind the steering wheel are easy to read and the dashboard, while fairly button-heavy, is mostly easy to get your head around. The infotainment system is controlled by twisting and pressing a dial, and viewed on the same screen behind the steering wheel that displays the instrument dials. In time, this becomes quite intuitive, and it’s great to have all the important info – sat-nav, media and speedo – just below your eyeline.

The Huracán's interior doesn't exactly feel plush to the touch, though. There's a surprising amount of hard, scratchy plastic that you wouldn't find in an Audi R8 or McLaren 720S. That's true even in the range-topping Performante, which has some forged composite (high-tech carbonfibre) interior parts to keep weight to a minimum.

Visibility to the rear is pretty restricted in the Huracán; the chunky, raked rear pillars create big blindspots. The standard electrically adjustable seats are comfortable and very supportive – you don’t need to add the optional hardcore bucket seats. The Peformante gets carbonfibre sports seats as standard, although you can opt for regular Comfort seats if you'd prefer.
