Stuart Shield unleashed the head-turning Lamborghini Huracán Evo Spyder on his recent trip to Salon Privé and fills us in on all the details
Incorporating high-level performance and next generation vehicle control, the Huracán Evo Spyder was put to the test. Lamborghini loaned Stuart this beautiful car so that he could drive to and from Salon Privé’s press day to speak with the company’s EMEA CEO Andrea Baldi.
First impressions are so important, and what immediately stood out was the shape and colour of the car. Its futuristic elements and iridescent hue were designed to turn heads, and that it did – it is almost akin to a Savile Row/Carnaby Street mix.
With two people in transit, don’t plan more than a few days away otherwise you will be wearing the same clothes or disposables. The luggage space is just big enough for a bag sized for an overhead locker in an Airbus.
The Huracán is all about performance and entertainment. Acceleration whisks you to 60mph in just over 3 seconds and the sound and 10 cylinders in V form pushes the exhaust gasses from the 5.2 litre motor through the most soulful pipes since Dizzy Gillespie.
The sound of the engine is amplified when switching from Strada to Sport setting on the centre of the steering wheel. This also sets up the car for a more spirited drive. The car has four-wheel steering and a seven-speed dual clutch, so changing gears in corners is very unlikely to unseat the car whilst going fast around tight bends. The grip is exceptional and the steering is very precise so you don’t need to constantly revise your turn in as with other powerful cars.
