Subaru Cosworth Impreza vs old Imprezas review - Auto Express
Four Imprezas, a total of 1,184bhp and a mile-long strip of tarmac... the
battle of the hardcore Subaru special editions is on!
A manic chorus of turbo engines is
followed by a screech from the tyres as our competitors catapult off the
line. And with 119bhp more than the next most powerful car here, the new
Cosworth-tuned Impreza this should find this a walk in the park --
especially given that its rivals today are 10 years older.

The new Lamborghini Huracan LP6104 has a big task on its hands.
Not only must it beat the Ferrari 458 and the McLaren 650S, it needs to
outperform the Gallardo - the car it replaced - in the showroom, as the
Gallardo was the manufacturer's best-selling model ever, with 14,000 sold
over a 10-year career.
Happily, the Lamborghini Huracan gets off to the best possible start.
Perhaps the design is a little conservative by Lamborghini's standards, but
in the flesh, the aggressive proportions, aggressive front end and floating
C-Pillar push all the right buttons.
Like in the Lamborghini Aventador, the interior of the Huracan pays homage
to fighter jets, with a flip-up ignition switch, angles everywhere and a
new cockpit-like 12.3-inch digital instrument display behind the wheel that
can be configured in a variety of ways.
The Lamborghini Huracan also gets a whole range of brand-new technologies.
For starters, there's this all new chassis which is made from a combination
of aluminium and carbon fibre. This makes the Huracan not only 10 per cent
lighter than the Gallardo, but also 50 per cent stiffer.
There are also new three-stage adaptive dampers, as well as a variable
ratio electro-mechanical steering system that varies the ratio on how quick
A new electronically controlled four-wheel drive system can send up to 70
per cent of the power to the Huracan's rear-wheels in normal driving, and
up to 100 per cent when you really need it.
Most importantly on the new Lamborghini Huracan, though, is a new,
seven-speed twin-clutch box that shouldn't feel like you're getting kicked
in the head every time you change gear.
Rather than downsizing or turbocharging,
Lamborghini has stuck to its guns by using a developed version of the
Gallardo's naturally aspirated 5.2-litre V10.
The Lamborghini Huracan gets stop-start and a few other tweaks to make it a
little bit cleaner, but most importantly, it's now got 602bhp and 560Nm of
torque. It'll do 0-60 in 3.2 seconds and it has a top-speed of 202mph.
The Lamborghini Huracan's acceleration is pretty vivid. Perhaps it doesn't
quite have the free-revving nature of a Ferrari 458 or the turbocharged hit of a McLaren 650S, but it's
definitely lost none of the aural drama that the Gallardo had.
The biggest change here with the Lamborghini Huracan, though, is its
breadth of abilities.
It has something called the 'Anima' switch, meaning it has three driving
modes. In 'Strada' mode, it softens the suspension and dials back the
ferocity of the steering, the gearbox and the throttle.
'Sport' mode is somewhat of an interim mode and it's pretty good for
fast-driving on road. But since we're testing the Lamborghini Huracan at
the amazing Ascari circuit in Spain, it would be a shame if we didn't go
for the full-fat 'Corsa' mode.
Fling it into a corner and the steering is quite light, but it's absolutely
pin-sharp. In terms of feel, it's a bit like a Ferrari 458 and you can feel
the variable ratio really helping you out, meaning there's no full-opposite
The carbon ceramic brakes on the Lamborghini Huracan are standard-fit now,
and they're absolutely brutal in the way they stop the car.
With the four-wheel drive system, there's also tonnes of grip. However, if
you provoke the Huracan a bit, you can get it to act a bit like a
rear-wheel drive car.
Perhaps it's not as lairy as the Gallardo used to be - that used to like to
gets its tail out at the slightest provocation - but you can still have
some fun with this thing and feel it moving underneath you. The tech used
in the Huracan can also make a pretty average driver look pretty
The question is though, is do you actually want a Lamborghini that flatters
you and covers up all your driving mistakes? Some will say that a
Lamborghini should scare the life out of you and your passenger. Then it
should spit you into a hedge when you're not at the top of your game.
But, we'd disagree because the new Huracan is a glorious fusion of modern
electronics and old-school theatrics.
If you want something that drives like a pig and breaks-down every five
minutes, you can always take your £186,000 and spend it on something from
Lamborghini's back catalogue.
Audi Quattro Concept review - Auto Express
Audi is heading back to the future! Thirty years after the original quattro
rewrote the rulebook, Audi has re-imagined its most iconic model for the
modern age. But can the Quattro Concept, first shown at the Paris show last
month, do justice to its illustrious ancestors? Auto Express was first to
put this year's most exciting new model to the test.
Lexus LFA Review - Kelley Blue Book
The Lexus LFA is among the rarest cars on earth. Only 500 of these V10,
carbon fiber super cars were built and driving one is a special privilege.
Just prior to retiring car number 14 from their press fleet Lexus was kind
enough to let Kelley Blue Book's Micah Muzio spend a day behind the wheel.
How was the experience? In a word, epic.
