I’ve ‘stolen’ Clarkson’s story on the Lamborghini Huracan Performante. At least I’ve copied it and give due credit to his enormousness for the words and the picture. Clarkson writes no other motoring journalist that I’ve read in recent years. He’s humorous, factual and calls a pig a pig, even though it might have red lipstick applied. With this green monster, he tells it like it is. Get in, no intention of understanding where ‘stuff’ is and just driving it. Me, at least, I have a general understanding where the indicators are, where the headlights should be and that the mirrors are adjusted. All the other stuff you can learn as you go along.
The funniest part of the article is Clarkson pontificating on the exhaust noise – isn’t that what the Lamboghini Huracan Performante is all about mate?
“Well, I’ve never heard a noise like it. Plainly, the engine was bereft of oil after all and had exploded. In a panic, I abandoned the overtaking and took my foot off the accelerator. And then I realised that, no, that’s just the noise a Huracan makes when you poke it with a stick. The sound starts off as a jackhammer, then builds into IEDs going off, Krakatoa, the Grateful Dead, a space shuttle rocket test, white noise, a latter-day V10 Formula One car at full chat, a squadron of F-15 Eagles on combat power, some lions, a hunt ball and a war. All going on in your car. At the same time”
So rather than just copy the complete article, here’s a link to it – enjoy. Lamborghini Huracan Performante

Here’s an example
Matt wanted to purchase a Mazda 3 SP25 GT Manual Hatch. The retail value, drive away on that car is around $35,000. Car Business managed to purchase the same car for $28, 123.90 and with our fee Matt paid $25, 588, a saving of over $6000. And how do we know? Another customer, (looking for a new Holden HSV) just paid $35,000 for the same car – but he did it himself, without our assistance
If you’ve got a vehicle to trade, we have some clever ways to maximize the value – from used car dealers keen for your car to assist you to sell it privately. Finance and Insurance? We can handle that too, and we promise you will not be paying exorbitant dealer markups there either.
