TRACK CHAL­LENGE

Hong Kong Tatler - - Cars -

switch al­lows you to choose three dif­fer­ent driv­ing styles. The word means “soul” in Ital­ian, and it does, in­deed, change the spirit of the Hu­racán. “Strada,” for “road,” is the ba­sic set­ting, pro­vid­ing the least ag­gres­sive sus­pen­sion, throt­tle and steer­ing re­sponses. “Sport” steps it up a notch for more spir­ited driv­ing but still with a close eye on safety. “Corsa”, or “race,” is where the Hu­racán drops all safety nets and ex­pects you to know your way around a race­track. I find there is a marked dif­fer­ence be­tween the three and I set­tle on Strada while driv­ing in the city, re­mem­ber­ing the slightly con­cerned look from the Lam­borgh­ini ex­ec­u­tive when dis­cussing use of the Corsa mode in town.

Fast-for­ward a few weeks and I’m again set­tled be­hind the wheel of the Hu­racán, but this time at Malaysia’s Sepang In­ter­na­tional Cir­cuit, where the 2014 world fi­nals of Lam­borgh­ini’s sin­gle-make race se­ries, the Su­per Tro­feo Cup, are tak­ing place.
