While dropping the 2012 Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Super Trofeo Stradale off for an oil change and yearly service over at Lamborghini Broward we came across a matching 2016 Huracan in Rosso Mars on the way out.   Since the 2016 Bullfest Miami Rally we’ve been considering making a change from the Super Trofeo to a Huracan or Aventador but the numbers didn’t make sense, until now.

After a few conversations, some test drives in the Huracan and a couple of days over the weekend to think about it (pros -cons below) we ended up trading in the Super Trofeo for the Huracan.  What was supposed to be routine oil change turned out to be much more expensive purchase but fun and exciting at the same time.

Here are some pros and cons of each car:

2016 Lamborghini Huracan

  • Pros
    • New Design
    • Quicker – mid-high 10’s at 130+ MPH in the 1/4 Mile
    • Updated interior, comfortable seats
    • Latest electronics, full digital dash, rear view camera for parking
    • Updated AWD System with variable power distribution
    • Dual Clutch Transmission – smooth and ultra fast shifting with different modes
    • Thrust Mode/Lauch Control – 0-60 MPH in 2.7 seconds or less
    • Magneto Adjustable Suspesnion – great for cruising around or racing
    • Carbon Ceramic Brakes – no brake dust and awesome stopping power with no fade
    • Under Warranty
  • Cons
    • New car depreciation
    • Lots of them produced, not unique
    • Heavier than Super Trofeo
    • Not a lot of carbon options, not a fan of the “Forged Carbon”, some areas of the car look plasticky, rear bumper, etc.
    • Current competitors are faster – McLaren 650S, Ferrari 488

2012 Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Super Trofeo Stradale

  •  Pros
    • Very unique, only 150 produced, maybe less, set to be the most collectible Gallardo ever
    • Holding value very well, Lamborghini Broward is asking the same price the dealer I bought the car from 2.5 years ago
    • Lightest Gallardo ever produced
    • Most powerful Gallardo ever produced, rated at 570HP but makes 600HP  – Puts the same amount of power down to the wheels as the Huracan
    • Quickest Gallardo ever produced, we ran 11.1 @ 132 MPH
    • Stunning Looks, awesome rear wing, carbon fiber everywhere
  • Cons
    • Not very comfortable with non adjustable racing bucket seats
    • Single clutch transmission can be jarring at times, not smooth, auto mode useless
    • Thrust Mode tends to bog or spin, hard to get a great launch, feels hard on the car.
    • Ride can be rough as suspension is tuned for racing and is not adjustable
    • Steel brakes, lots of brake dust (CCB was available on the STS)
    • Old school electronics, no rear view camera available
    • Interior is dated, no major changes since 2004
    • Large rear wing slows down the car a little on the top end, but it’s adjustable and removable
    • No warranty
