Meet the Lamborghini Huracán LP610-4.

It is the newest supercar out of the Lamborghini stable and serves as the long-awaited replacement to the iconic Gallardo, a car that was born 10 years ago and has been fundamental to Lamborghini’s growth and success over the years.

The Huracán borrows heavily from those who have come before it, with the exterior resembling that of the Aventador and its powertrain similar to the Gallardo.

Cars: Rolls-Royce Ghost Review – Style, Class And Luxury With A Mean V8

In 1977, I think it was, P.J. O’Rouke wrote a hilarious and controversial of a $70,000 Aston-Martin Volante for Car & Driver. In that review O’Rourke famously wrote that he couldn’t give an accurate take on the nuances of the car’s performance threshold.  O’Rourke said something to the effect of — and I’m paraphrasing here – that he drove the car “like it had a trunk full of live babies and you would, too, if you were in someone else’s $70,000 car.”

Being a young, impressionable kid, I thought that was funny.

Flash ahead 36 years and I now understand exactly what he meant.

That’s because I recently spent a week with a 2013 Rolls-Royce Ghost Extended Wheelbase, which carried a base price of $296,000 and an as-tested priced of $356,770, which is roughly double the median housing price in Cabarrus County, N.C., the place that I call home.  And as you can imagine, in the little 5,000-person town where I live, the big Rolls-Royce stood out like Miley Cyrus twerking in a Baptist church on Sunday morning.
