are tech­ni­cally more ef­fi­cient in their op­er­a­tion, with a pair of cus­tom CSF heat ex­chang­ers com­plet­ing the cy­cle, and Sheepey’s ex­e­cu­tion has pack­aged it all with panache. It’s just the kind of qual­ity hard­ware 3:16 Speed needed, given their tight time­line – proven gear that’ll fit with OE qual­ity and not throw up any un­ex­pected hur­dles. Oh yes, and with the V10 en­gine boosted and run­ning stand­alone man­age­ment, it now packs a bru­tal 1,050hp.

One thing you can be to­tally sure of is that, while this Huracán was built specif­i­cally for a show stand, it’s cer­tainly no show queen. In fact, it’s hard to get RG out of the driver’s seat. “We drive ev­ery­thing that we own, noth­ing sits in­side and col­lects dust,” he as­sures us.

Ev­ery el­e­ment of this unique and bal­lis­tic Lam­borgh­ini ex­ists to shock and amaze: the seam­bust­ingly wide body­work, the retina-sear­ing paint, the hun­kered-down stance – it’s es­sen­tially a Hot Wheels toy brought to life. But the pièce de ré­sis­tance, dis­played so fab­u­lously at the rear end, is that cun­ning remix of the revered V10 for­mat. With a pair of shiny snails, foot-long flames on de­mand and Vey­ron-prod­ding power, this is a fresh snap­shot take on Lam­borgh­ini’s es­tab­lished for­mula. The ‘sen­si­ble’ Lambo, en­tirely reimag­ined for dropped jaws and joy­ous laugh­ter. ■
