800 HP Lamborghini Huracan Review Brutally Interrupted by Driver Dragging a Log

When you’re out there carving canyons in a supercharged Lamborghini Huracan, the number of thoughts that go through your mind per second is directly proportional with the rpm level. However, a million scenarios aren’t enough for one to expect a vehicle dragging a log on the road.

This is exactly what happened to Matt Farrah during The Smoking Tire’s recent VF Engineering-supercharged Lamborghini Huracan. With the blower kit having been released last month, Matt took to Spunky Canyon Road, in Santa Clarita, California, to put the car to the test.

Aided by the compressor, the 5.2-liter V10 heart of the Huracan places 800 hp at the mercy of the driver’s right foot, so, as you can expect, things got a little intense during the run. However, as Matt was exiting a wide right-hander, he came across a driver who was dragging a log.

This is the kind of situation that would easily separate an autonomous vehicle from a human driving a car and we can easily imagine the emotionless reaction of a self-driving car.

While the VF Engineering package doesn’t touch anything outside the engine compartment, the ceramic brakes on the car allowed Matt to end up laughing at the situation. And turning the car around for the rest of the run.

While the odd episode takes place at the 3:10 mark, we recommend finding ten minutes to watch the entire clip. Blown Raging Bull details aside, you'll be able to see where the log-dragging action started, as well as well where it ended.

We’re talking about a $30,000 kit that allows the Huracan to hit the 60 mph mark in 2.3s, while pulling 9-second quarter mile runs. Since we’re talking about a supercar whose handling (in stock, LP610-4 form) is a little bit too much on the conservative side, the extra power isn’t half bad.
