Lamborghini Huracan Understeers In Gravel Bank, Diver Says He Meant To Do That

Multiple road-tests had confirmed the Lamborghini Huracan’s neutral character, developed to make customers feel comfortable while driving the 602 HP, mid-engine supercar.

In fact, to further caress the driver’s ego, the baby Lambo was tweaked to offer a safer chassis with a wider track on the front than at the back. Even the AWD system keeps a watchful eye on the vehicle’s dynamics, stopping it for getting too sideways. The downside of this “solution”? It understeers with every chance it has, and this video shows it – even though the driver states otherwise.

During the Targa Tasmania event, Tony Quinn’s Huracan can be seen taking a wide line under braking, plowing straight a mound of gravel on the side of the road. Now, this kind of “slip-up” might be blamed on the excessive speed, but apparently the driver himself stated it wasn’t a mistake and it was done deliberately. That was his plan all along.

In an interview following the race, Quinn declared he knew the “camera guy” would be there, as well as a few spectators, so he decided to offer them some performance worthy of a few gasps. Needless to say, if that was Quinn’s real intention, he definitely succeeded, although from where we’re sitting things appear more adrift.

Joking aside, the man clearly has a sense of humor, as he was very aware of the peril when the Lambo decided not to stop in time and go over the bank. He blamed the “rough cars” – the likes of Subaru, Mitsubishi and Nissan – for the stones on the road that made the Huracan’s brakes to not function properly, but everything turned out fine for him and his co-pilot; even the Lamborghini was still drivable after the little stunt.  

By the way, the video contains NSFW language.
