‘HISTORICALLY, ITALIAN CARS HAVE BEEN ABOUT VISUAL DELIGHT, AND THE CARMAKER WHO PROBABLY EPITOMISES THIS FACT BEST IS LAMBORGHINI’

IGNITION
In many ways, the Italians are a bit like
Indians. Like us, they can be outrageously emotional, religious, political, family-oriented, drive without a care, and also, I hear, be easily corrupted. Some say they have a better sense of fashion. Unfortunately, my lack of expertise on fashion means I cannot take an informed stand on that. However, there’s one aspect where they are miles ahead of us – making desirable cars. In fact, they are miles ahead of the rest of the world. Think about it – over the years, of all the posters that have adorned our walls and closet doors, I am sure a majority of them featured a Ferrari, a Lamborghini or a Maserati.Historically, Italian cars have been about  visual delight, and the carmaker who probably epitomises this fact best is Lamborghini. A decade ago, I remember a colleague telling me, after his return from Italy, how everything at the factory in Maranello is a bit uptight compared to the easy-going approach at Sant’Agata. A decade later, despite the German ownership entrenching itself deeper in the Italian brand, it’s still the same: easy-going. What’s changed though, is the  way it builds its cars – they’re now more reliable, and better engineered. With the Huracan, things have moved to a different level. Sure, it’s not the best-looking car to have emerged out of the Lambo bullpen, but it possesses an arresting presence of its own on the road. Lamborghini is going all out with this model,  because as its predecessor, the Gallardo has shown, the Huracan is going to give it the numbers and the financial muscle to help its  building of halo cars that will grace our roads, as  well as millions of bedroom walls and closet doors the world over. Because when it comes to making  breathtaking cars, the Italians are like no other.
