The Lamborghini brand has created many an iconic supercar, perhaps none quite as recognizable as the Lamborghini Gallardo, which ran from 2003 to 2013. But in 2014, the Lamborghini Huracan took over as the brand’s mid-engine V10 from the Gallardo, and it has been turning heads ever since. We wanted to see how this relatively new icon measures up to some of its fiercest competitors, so we thought we’d pit the 2018 Lamborghini Huracan vs 2018 Audi R8.
The Audi R8 was introduced in 2006 and has gone through many different changes and iterations, but it remains one of the most exciting sports cars made by the luxury brand. It makes an excellent competitor for the Lamborghini Huracan, but let’s see how they actually measure up to one another in terms of specifications.
2018 Lamborghini Huracan
2018 Audi R8
|580 HP||Horsepower||540 HP|
|3,062 lbs.||Curb Weight||3,649 lbs.|
|17 mpg||Combined Fuel Efficiency||17 mpg|
The table up above highlights some of the most important aspects of these two supercars and puts them right next to one another so you can really see them. The first row looks at horsepower, of which the Huracan delivers an extra 40 HP. To make that power gap even wider, the Huracan also weighs nearly 600 pounds less than its Audi competitor, which is pretty incredible.
The third row shows that both vehicles achieve the same efficiency, neither of which is great but you’re probably not purchasing an exotic V10 sports car to go green. Unfortunately, despite the power advantages the Huracan has over the R8, the Audi vehicle still manages to hit 60 miles per hour 0.1 seconds faster than the Huracan.
If you’re able to overlook that tenth of a second in favor of increased handling and, in our opinion, a more impressive design, then be sure to get in touch with us about making a Lamborghini Huracan your own.
