If the name isn't a mouthful then the 611bhp V10 rear wheel drive should get you going

The massive spoiler on the back, the speed bump repellent front spoiler and the name all go together to push out the new baby for Lambo. It's low enough to Karate chop you in the ankle and wide enough not to fit down O'Connel Street but that won't stop it taking part in  Lamborghini's Blancpain Super Trofeo one-make series that currently runs in Asia, Europe and North America.

The Huracán Super Trofeo marks a new benchmark for the race series. ''The Huracán Super Trofeo is an all-new car built from scratch with a clear racing concept,'' said Maurizio Reggiani, Board Member and Director of Research and Development for Automobili Lamborghini. ''We believe the car will be as fun for fans to watch as it will be rewarding for our racers to drive

Gone is the cuddly four wheel drive, the system that kept us all safe from death by drift. Now Lambo is going back to rear wheel drive which means we will once again smell the tyres being ripped apart at every traffic light.

The Huracán is the road going version so it won't be long before we get RWD in that and it'll sort the men from the boys when it comes to performance. Lamborghini are back with a bang, let's hope it stays on the tarmac.

The Subaru Outback offers a classy drive and rugged good looks at an attractive price, writes Ian Mallon
