When I first laid eyes on the $286,195 Lamborghini Huracán LP610-4 when it was unveiled Friday, I was certain I wouldn’t want it. It’s just too much, especially in the sexiness department.
So I decided to find the most evocative pictures yet taken of the low-slung road rocket, in an attempt to demonstrate to you exactly why this is not the car for me.
1. It’s too fast.
If I got a Huracán in my favorite arrest-me red color, the cops would be all over me like a cheap suit, especially when I take it up to its 202 mph top speed.
2. Its front end looks too angry.
Really, what would you do if you were driving along at 190 mph and this fierce face showed up in your rearview mirror? With its ability to go from 0 to 62 mph in 3.2 seconds, it wouldn’t take long for the Huracán to catch up to you from a standing start.
3. It’s too low to the ground.
Who cares if it’s hyper-aerodynamic and gets 18.8 mpg? That thing’s going to scrape a spoiler when I back it out of the driveway.
4. It’s not good for snow driving.
Sure, it has four-wheel drive, but it still won’t do me much good out here on the frozen tundra. With its 398 lb ft of torque at 6,000 rpm, I would have that sucker spinning in no time flat.
5. Its exhaust note is too sexy.
Just listen to that 5.2-liter V10 revving up its outrageous 610 hp engine. What will the neighbors think?
Who would want a car like this, anyway? Plus, it’s too hard to spell “Lamborghini” and that accent thingy in Huracán is problematic.
Nah, this car’s not for me. Just like Br’er Rabbit begged not to be thrown into the briar patch, please don’t anyone give me this car when it’s available next fall.
