Lamborghini Huracan Official Details
Dec 20, 2013 - 5:13 AM - by AutoGuide.com


Quote:
It still uses a 5.2-liter V10, it still looks like a Lamborghini and it still sounds like a mechanical banshee, but the Italian brand known for building fighting bulls says its newest car was made from “scratch.”

One thing the self-absorbed hip-hop mogul and former President have in common is that they would both (probably) agree on how attractive the inside of this car is. Like the “eye” of a Haracan, the cabin is the epitome of calm inside chaos. Or at least that’s
