Over the last few years, Lamborghini has organized dedicated driving tours to some of the most spectacular locations planets Earth has to offer in order to sniff out some great roads. Sounds like a tortuously crap job, right? It’s called the Lamborghini Avventura, and over the years everything from Miuras to Aventador SVs have conquered Andalusia, Transylvania, the Norwegian fjords and Iceland. But this year, six Huracán Evos and a Urus headed to Norway. And not the crap part of Norway (not that there really is one) but the really, really pretty part: the Lofoten Islands. Click on to see what they got up to.
The rabble of seven raging bulls set off from Harstad to complete the first stage of the journey, connecting Norway to the archipelago. But to us, this photo just looks like a giant ferry spitting out a mouthful of Skittles.
Lofton is famous for two things; 1) being very pretty 2) producing lots of Stockfish; an unsalted fish (normally cod) dried by cold air and wind on wooden racks. Oh, look! Four Lamborghinis.
“Alexa, play Deep Purple – Smoke on the Water”
This owner took the whole ‘learn the ropes’ thing a little too literally. Still, Lamborghini.
Everyone, please congratulate the winner of this year’s Lamborghini hide and seek championship. Let’s just hope he doesn’t have hayfever.
The Huracán Evo’s nat asp V10 now produces 631bhp at 8,000rpm. It also makes lots of noise. Now imagine that noise in a tunnel times six. That’s what’s happening here.
Don’t you hate it when people ruin your view? Damn those gorgeous bloody mountains and astonishing turquoise fjords.
Lofoten’s distinctive scenery has it all: dramatic mountains and peaks, open sea and sheltered bays, beaches and untouched lands. And now… Lamborghinis.
Lamborghini claims seven times the aero efficiency of the outgoing Huracán for the Evo. That’s thanks to a new front spoiler, diffuser and air curtain, new rear diffuser, cleaner underbody, repositioned exhaust (now with titanium intake valves), and a ducktail spoiler. It’s also why none of the cars pictured are airborne after that tasty-looking yump.
As postcards go, this isn’t a bad one.
Remember when people criticised the Huracán for being ‘boring’? Still think that now, cynics?
The Huracán Evo costs £206,000, and is liable to go deep into the 220s the longer you linger in the Ad Personam bespoke department. But remember to save some money for fuel – you’ll need it.
Over the trip, the conga line of Lambos completed 630 kilometers of driving. We’d give a selection box of organs to do 10 of those.
Passenger footwells brimmed with torrfisk and petrol receipts, the trip concluded at the starting point, Harstad in northern Norway. Now, where should Lamborghini send its cars next year? Remember, it also has the off-road option thanks to the Urus and the Huracán-based Sterrato which could add a new spice to the recipe.
