Lamborghini has set to tackle the steep hairpin turns and switchbacks of one of the most spectacular driving roads in the world: the Transfaragasan.
Located in Romania and winding for 91km (57miles), from the Vidraru Dam to Cartisoara village, the road was built under the regime of dictator Nicolae Ceausescu between 1970 and 1974, and its main purpose at the time was to ensure quick military access across the mountains, in the event of a Soviet invasion.
Today, the Soviet threat is gone, but the Transfagarasan highway remains one of the most beautiful roads in the world, and a ‘must do’ for every petrol head, with its spectacular landscapes. It climbs to an altitude of 2,042m (6,699ft), making it the country’s second highest mountain pass, after the lesser-known Transalpina.
For their voyage in the Land of Dracula, Lamborghini chose six units of the Huracan. These included Coupes, Spyders, all-wheel drive, and rear-wheel drive versions of the supercar, and even the impressive Huracan Performante, which managed to lap the Nurburgring in 6:52.01 earlier this year, becoming the new record-holder.
