Building the ideal road for a drive in a Lamborghini

Roadshow
[MUSIC] This is a Lamborghini Hurac��n but it's not just any Lamborghini Hurac��n, this is an Ad Personam Lamborghini Hurac��n. Showing just a small selection of the almost infinite number of ways. Which you can now personalize your Santagasa supercar. What's more, the fact that people are personalizing their cars to a greater degree these days, rather flies in the face of the [INAUDIBLE] speculator narrative. We all know that some people are just buying rare cars in safe, re-saleable colors, and then driving them for approximately three miles before chopping them in for whacking great profits. The personalized car is anathema to that. It screams, I'm keeping this, its all mine. And I like that. Now, don't get me wrong, I can completely understand why some of you might think this is all just pure vanity. If I was unlucky enough to spec up a Lamborghini, I think I'd be fairly puritanical in my tastes as well. But equally, I do understand the desire for personalization. I mean, look at children. They do it with stickers on their pencil cases. We do it with cases for our mobile phones Different color handlebar tape on our bicycles. You'll like a bit of individuality. Something that says, it's ours. So what's this Lamborghini got on it that's different? Well the [INAUDIBLE] thing on this, it's got quite a lot. It's got all this forged composite, forged carbon.+ Chopped up weave in it. You can see here beautiful stitching on the seats, got the blue color which is distinctive in its own right. The standout feature in terms of price though, and this will make your eyes water, is the stripe. $13,00 Yes that's 13,000 pounds for a strike. I suppose if you are buying a Lamborghini you can afford it. Of course personalization is as old as the automobile itself and these days most manufacturers offer some special department to deal with requests. Porsche exclusive is perhaps best known for the paint to sample service. McLarin [UNKNOWN] always seems to specialize in adding carbon fiber scoops and vents. While many boar individuality to the masses it's variety of roofs. Of course some cars seem to need personalization more that others. Lamborghini well so exhubriant, so wow that you can get away with pretty much whatever you want to. I mean an [INAUDIBLE] in bright green with a Mohican and a German flag down the middle just wouldn't be right. Be a bit like seeing a straight suit on Collin Firth dressed like Elton John. Of course underneath all this [INAUDIBLE] is a standard hurricane. It's the first time I've spent. There's a decent amount of timing in a standard four wheel drive hurricane. That is rather wonderful. The drive terrain is just mind blowingly good. That natural Aspirated V10. basic turn, simply stunning dual clutch game off the events need this air box, it's so good. The [INAUDIBLE] chaise's coming in for a bit of criticism for being under steering. But to be honest, the major sensation is just one of, Pure grit. Yes, you can bounce it a bit through the corners, but young [INAUDIBLE] really comes in when you're on the throttle, as she corners. And yes, you get atypical four-wheel drive [INAUDIBLE] pulling a bit with the nose, Pushing from the rear but wow what a car. There's this perception that turbo charge cars are the way to get real speed, but this is so fast. I guess the four wheel drive let's you deploy all of the 600 big horsepower. You really can't see what would be there across the ground. One thing I would say wouldn't expect to see dynamic steering although, you got three modes here on the Anonmo button. The scorch is definitely the best set. Suspension for the road. Suspensions just right. Light enough to give you confidence on those blind corners. The steering does actually feel all right but why pay extra for something that's not brilliant. No it's not as playful as something like a 488 but you can forgive this car so much because of the engine. [SOUND] Now, this whole anposorum stuff got me thinking. What I'd really like to be able to To personalize my road rage, in fact, personalize my whole drive. Now that would be brilliant. [MUSIC] [BLANK_AUDIO] If you could tailor the tarmac, what would an [UNKNOWN] drive look like? For me, it would start early, really early, cuz I love that feeling of having the world to myself. Headlights flicking on in the pre-dawn darkness. Sneaking, well as much as you can sneak, with a V-10, out of town. While others are slumbering. [MUSIC] Wouldn't be too much motorway to tackle. Thought I like forests because they remind me of rally stages, I think we'll leave them behind for the [UNKNOWN]. Instead parking somewhere up high In the middle of nowhere, in time to watch the sun come up. [MUSIC] Then the proper driving will begin. Spectacular remote roads. But in the same way that you can choose stitching your Hurricane's leather. In this fantasy there's a choice of width of road. Definitely wider than this. Little bit better. There we are just right. I picked Wales by the way because it does arguably the best most testing roads in the world. Now some might want to lift up the asphalt or push it among the [INAUDIBLE], that's into the realms of coach building other than just personalization. Nonetheless, let's stitch different sections of tarmac together. Let's see our [INAUDIBLE] track. SElection of bends [NOISE], types. Flowing. [MUSIC] Open, and obviously some strengths too. Traffic, all avoided. Sheep would have half a semblance or sense, and stay on the grass too. There would be a petrol station with Super Unleaded, just where you wanted it. What the hell, I am going to include that narrow [MUSIC] But let's make it one way. The weather? That's a tricky one. I love driving in the wet, always have. So perhaps there would be a section with rain. But predominantly, I think I'd want sunshine. If only so that I could put the windows down, and hear the sound of the V10 being whisked away in the warm [UNKNOWN]. [NOISE] And then just when you're nearly [UNKNOWN] with sand and scenery and sensations, teetering on the edge of tiredness. There would be a coffee shop. No not one of those. Something proper, with good Italian coffee to go with the car. And cake, definitely cake. Afterall, it'll be hungry work gleaning up for the next personal drive. [MUSIC]
