“What an absolute beast! The Lamborghini Huracán Performante is our Best Driver’s Car because it delivers the most exhilarating driving experience available on four wheels,” says MOTOR TREND Editor-in-Chief Ed Loh. “We’ve never witnessed such a potent combination of aggression, control, confidence, and pure speed from Sant’Agata before. Bravo Lamborghini!”


MOTOR TREND’s 2018 Best Driver’s Car program hosted a dozen cars from 12 automakers to test contenders’ driving abilities at two distinct venues in California. A multi-terrain evaluation was held on a secluded path along Route 198 in the sun-bleached hills of central California, while the limit handling and hot lap test, conducted by championship-winning race car driver Randy Pobst, was at the legendary WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca.

With 640 horsepower and the ability to reach to 60 mph in just 2.5 seconds, the Huracán Performante performed one of the fastest laps at the Laguna Seca track, landing in third place. However, Lamborghini’s outstanding performance on Route 198 secured the overall win. In an everyday driving experience, the Huracán Performante proved to be a car that anyone can enjoy.

“We are proud to receive such a notable recognition as ‘Best Driver’s Car’ by MOTOR TREND, one of the leading authorities in the world of automotive publishing,” said Stefano Domenicali, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Automobili Lamborghini. “The essence of the Huracán Performante is about the ultimate road and track experience it gives to the person behind the wheel. The accolade confirms that Lamborghini’s mission to create the pinnacle of driving emotion is a commitment we always pursue with passion. Thanks to the talent of our R&D and design teams, Lamborghini was able to push the limits of engineering to all-new levels, especially with the introduction of Lamborghini’s patented new active aerodynamic system, ALA (Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva), allowing the Huracán Performante to break new ground and affirm its track talent.”

Since 2009, MOTOR TREND has executed its annual Best Driver’s Car program to test, evaluate, and select the very best driver’s car among the year’s top sports cars, coupes, hatchbacks, roadsters, and SUVs. This year, the Lamborghini Huracán Performante faced many strong contenders, including:

  • McLaren 720S
  • Porsche 911 GT2 RS
  • Chevy Corvette ZR1
  • BMW M5
  • Audi TT RS
  • Ford Mustang GT Performance Pack 2
  • Aston Martin Vantage
  • Alfa Romeo Stelvio Q4 Quadrifoglio
  • Honda Civic Type R
  • Kia’s Stinger GT
  • Mazda’s MX-5


In 2017 Automobili Lamborghini launched its third model, the Lamborghini Urus, the first Super Sport Utility Vehicle. This car creates a new niche in the luxury segment with benchmarking power, performance and driving dynamics, unparalleled design, luxury and daily usability.

The V10 Huracán family made its world debut at the Geneva Motor Show in 2014 with the Coupé version, followed by the Spyder and the Rear-Wheel-Drive versions in 2015. Successor to the iconic Gallardo, the Huracán’s innovative technology and exceptional performance redefines the driving experience for luxury super sports cars. The Huracán Performante was presented at the Geneva Motor Show in 2017 and proves its driving capabilities holding several lap records.

The Aventador S Coupé and Roadster presented in 2017 represent a new benchmark in the world of V12 luxury super sports cars. And the Aventador SVJ, presented in August 2018, has already claimed its position as the Nürburgring-Nordschleife production car record holder, completing the 20.6 km lap in just 6:44.97 minutes.

With 150 dealerships today throughout the world, in half a century Automobili Lamborghini has created a continuous series of dream cars, including the 350 GT, Miura, Espada, Countach, Diablo, Murciélago, as well as limited editions including the Reventón, Sesto Elemento, Veneno and the Centenario.

Through my studies, I've also obtained many naturopathic and nutrition degrees as well. Part-time jobs have added marketing, network marketing, event management, and store management skills to my experience throughout my career. Throughout my career, I have also been a Hotel Manager and owned a Bar/Restaurant & Internet Cafe.

I've improved my English at Cambridge Academy of English - 2003, in Cambridge. I live a conscious lifestyle, and try to protect the ecosystem. Animal lover and capable of helping others without judgment or negative reactions, this is thanked my knowledge in holistic therapies and the naturopathy courses I've followed.
