As the replacement for the Gallardo, Lamborghini’s all-time best-selling model, the Huracán LP 610-4 had to be good. It is better than good: It is excellent, featuring advanced design, extraordinary performance, exquisite build quality, and good manners.The Gallardo’s great shortcoming was a 6-speed automated-manual transmission that, thanks to the clunking brutality of its shifting, made the car seem like a piece of mechanized armor.
