A Supercar to Remind Us of the Joy of Driving: 2022 Lamborghini Huracan EVO RWD Spyder

A Girls Guide To Cars | A Supercar To Remind Us Of The Joy Of Driving: 2022 Lamborghini Huracan Evo Rwd Spyder - Featured 1

When you get your hands on a Lamborghini Huracan, you drive as much as possible.

I had this beauty for four days in Los Angeles recently, and I put nearly 200 miles on it, just joy-riding. It’s the kind of car that turns heads, causes bystanders to pull out their phones, and maybe even follow you down the street taking photos and video of you. Yes, all of those things happened to me in my time with this gorgeous ride.

I also had so many people in Santa Monica wave and smile, and a fellow Lamborghini driver pull up beside me on Rodeo Drive to chat. It’s that special of a car. Yes, this kind of attention will set you back a pretty penny, but that’s not why I would spend the money on this. Keep reading to find out why I would shell out this many dollars on a Lamborghini.

No Creature Comforts Here

I’m not buying this for the generous cargo space (there isn’t any), convenient cupholders (they sort of don’t exist), Wireless Apple CarPlay (nope), or power and heated seats (also nope).

The media system was mediocre and I found the Bluetooth connectivity to be incredibly glitchy, but I loved the vertical touchscreen. The car doesn’t have a USB-C port so I had to run to the “Tar-jay” for a USB charger to use Apple CarPlay and be able to charge my phone in the car. Once that was connected, Apple CarPlay worked perfectly and I loved the audio system. However, I will say that I enjoyed the absolutely wonderful engine sounds so I didn’t rely on my playlists as much as I normally do when I drive. But having Apple Maps was helpful as I drove a ton of canyon roads, Malibu, Beverly Hills, around Santa Monica and greater Los Angeles; NOT getting lost was key.

There is one pop out cupholder, which I did use, but learned quickly that a Starbucks Grande is not the appropriate size as my Pink Coconut Drink went flying out at me while I was driving on the 405. After that I stuck to smaller cups in that spot.

Speaking of storage, there is none. There is a tiny front-trunk, or frunk, that might fit one bag of groceries, but definitely not even a carry-on suitcase. It was comical for me to put my luggage on the front passenger floor on my way to my hotel, I wish I’d snapped a photo for you.

The seats, about a $12,000 option on my spec, while comfortable and very cool looking Sport style with alcantara and bright orange embroidery details were manual and not power. At first, my 5’1″ self thought I might have a hard time with visibility, but I managed to find just the right seating position comfortably. I will say that at my height, you can’t see well enough out the rear to shoulder-check, so I had to briefly speed up or slow down to change lanes to make sure there was noone in my blind spot. This actually didn’t take much time to get used to. I was surprised my left leg was always bent while my foot rested on the dead pedal, so I think a very tall man might actually feel a bit cramped in here. Clearly this car was built for me.

Things Aren’t Where they Normally Are

There are no stalks on the steering column, only giant paddle shifters, so where oh where could the turn signals and windshield wipers be? They’re on the steering wheel itself. They are positioned where your thumbs sit, so once I got used to it, I just tended to keep my left thumb on the turn signal button because if you just change lanes, it doesn’t turn itself off, you have to press the button again.

The same goes for the windshield wipers, the button is on the right side of the steering wheel by your right hand.

The Start button is underneath a red clasp which makes you feel like you’re starting a rocket ship or an airplane, which is a very cool feeling. The gear shift buttons are also very unique, with a reverse lever-type shift and there is no Drive button, you simply tap the right paddle shifter and off you get.

I was Worried About how Low to the Ground It is – But there’s a Solution for That

There is a magic button in the Lamborghini Huracan. No, I’m serious, it’s magic. It lifts the front of the car so that you can safely drive up driveways, over speed bumps, or down on to the street from a driveway, withOUT scratching the underside of the front of the car. This was my one big fear with this car, I did NOT want to damage it, of course, and I know that Los Angeles has some weird ditches along roadways and some very steep driveways. But, every time you’re about to approach a driveway, speed bump, or leave a parking lot, you just tap the button and lift the nose, and then tap it again when you’re back on flat ground.

Let’s talk about that power and sound

You don’t buy a car just for the attention, or at least I hope not. You buy it for the power, the sound, the speed, the feeling of joy you get from driving it. That is why I would spend nearly $300,000 on this car. This is a V10 getting 602 horsepower and 413 lb-feet of torque (the all-wheel drive version gets more power) but its not for these specs I want this, it’s for the sound. The sound of this engine is pure joy. Just listen to it startup on my YouTube video (below) or my Lamborghini Huracan sounds TikTok (also below). This car will get you from 0-60 in 3.3 seconds, so no worries about that pass or merge. Just don’t expect to take it on a road-trip requiring luggage.

The sound is what drew people to smile and wave too, I had a Tesla full of men driving alongside me for a long while along the Pacific Coast Highway through Malibu taking photos and videos, so I revved the engine for them a couple of times and they all waved, smiled wide and sent their thumbs-up my way. It was quite a joyride that I won’t soon forget.

Would you spend $300,000 on a Supercar if budget was no issue?
