Which Huracan does Edmunds recommend?

The Performante is the obvious choice for the ultimate Huracan experience. It's lighter, faster and more hardcore. You're buying an exotic sports car, so why not get the most exotic version?

Edmunds' Expert Review

Overall rating

While the Huracan's aggressive looks are certainly what attracts the most attention, the mid-engine layout and high-revving non-turbocharged engine typically keep drivers in love. There's even more to love for 2018. Lamborghini has upped the ante with the introduction of the Performante coupe and Spyder models. They provide more power, revised aerodynamics, less weight, and an adjustable suspension setup.

Instead of the standard model's 571 horsepower and 398 lb-ft of torque, the Performante's V10 produces 630 hp and 442 lb-ft of torque. Power is sent to the ground through a dynamic all-wheel-drive system and a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. Magnetorheological dampers actively adjust the shock absorbers to maximize control of the wheels for the most traction.

If you don't need that much power but would still like the confidence of all-wheel drive, check out the LP610-4. At 602 hp and 413 lb-ft of torque, it has a good jump in power from the standard model but doesn't approach the frenetic output of the Performante. And, of course, all models are available in both coupe and Spyder form.

Competitors to the Huracan read like a veritable who's who of supercars. The Huracan's cousin, the Audi R8, shares a similar layout and platform for a little less money. The Porsche 911 Turbo is more civilized for the street with little compromise on the track or mountain road. And for a British take on the exotic performance car, Aston Martin's DB11 provides classy looks and available V12 power.

2018 Lamborghini Huracan models

The Huracan is available in three configurations. Each configuration is available in coupe or convertible (Spyder) form. The LP 580-2 is the base model and comes with rear-wheel drive. The LP 610-4 adds a pinch more power plus all-wheel drive. The Performante LP 640-4 features even more power plus special aerodynamics and bodywork. All are equipped with a 5.2-liter V10 mounted in a midship configuration and a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.

The LP 580-2's V10 engine produces 571 horsepower and 398 lb-ft of torque. Steel brakes and 19-inch wheels are standard. All-wheel drive is denoted by the "-4" in LP 610-4. Lamborghini makes the V10 a bit more powerful with all-wheel drive, and here it cranks out 602 hp and 413 lb-ft of torque. Carbon-ceramic brakes and 20-inch wheels are part of the deal. (They're optional on rear-wheel-drive models.)

As its name describes, the Performante LP 640-4 (and its Spyder sibling) has more power and is also all-wheel-drive. Thanks to revised tuning and parts, the Performante produces 630 hp and 442 lb-ft of torque. This model features revised aerodynamics for more downforce, tri-color markings on the doors, and unique interior stitching.

Many interior and exterior cosmetic options are available for all versions. The list of substantial hardware options is short by comparison — it includes a suspension with continuously variable dampers, a nose-lifting system, cruise control and variable-ratio steering. Extras in the cabin are navigation, smartphone integration and even an onboard telemetry recorder.

Should I lease or buy a 2018 Lamborghini Huracan?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
