The distinctive gold and black bull logo of Lamborghini graces some of the world’s most exotic cars, but the company’s first success came from building tractors. After founder and car enthusiast Ferrucio Lamborghini became frustrated over issues with the clutch in his Ferrari, he set upon a path to create a sportscar to rival Ferrari. After its purchase by VW in 1998, the company greatly benefitted from a massive infusion of cash and technology. Introduced in 2014, the latest Huracan is an epic example of what happens when technology is seamlessly blended with passion. The 2-seat Huracan has a mid-engine, rear-wheel drive layout and a paddleshift transmission. An Audi-engineered 631-hp V10 engine and 7-speed transmission are linked to an all-wheel-drive system that goes from 0 to 60 in 2.5 seconds, while allowing the driver to maintain full control regardless of how straight or twisty the road may be. The interior can be customized to suit any owner’s whims, and features an electronics suite built around an 8.4” touchscreen to monitor mechanical systems and control climate and entertainment options to include Amazon voice-control to allow both hands to remain on the steering wheel;
