When Lamborghini relieved the Huracan of its front driveshaft, thus making it rear-wheel drive, it also cut power from 449Kws to ‘just’ 427Kws. The lighter, edgier LP580-2 would still do 0-100Km/h in less than 3.5 seconds and nudge 320km/h flat out, though. And for the first time, pull big, smokey slides in the process.

Suspension upgrades aim to right the wrongs of Nissan’s commercial ute. by David McCowen Ask Nissan’s management about the latest Navara ute and they’ll tell you its engineers did not get it wrong when designing the popular pickup’s suspension.But when Nissan asked customers, sales staff, journalists and its own engineers about the machine’s divisive rear suspension arrangement, it learned the model fell short of what some people expect from a work-ready ute.
