Perhaps Pobst just enjoys a generous helping of understeer in a very neutered supercar:

Dear VAG,

Let Lambo make the RWD supercars we all fell in love with and you stick to making the usable AWD ones

What Raskhas said is possible and so is the fact that Randy can actually drive and the other "Clarkson" reviewers can't.

It's also possible that car magazines say nice things about cars.

I think the Huracan was well done.

No match for a standard 458?
Also why is it that Ferrari doesn't allow auto journalists to drive their cars, even if granted permission by private owners?
None of the US auto publications including Car & Driver and Motor Trend were allowed to road test a 458 Speciale.

This review is so inconsistence with what every other journalist has said. Add on top the 'ringer' tires, I call shenanigans!

I agree, throwing on those tires was worthy.

Having said that, it would be nice to see a comparison where all the cars were equipped with the same tires whether shitty or not. If your car's wearing standard P Zeros, it's like a handicap.

adding those tires at the end for a lap time is odd to me but oh well.

Clearly your two emoticons and that statement were tongue in cheek and not that you were incorrect and back-peddled.

That Huracan is understeering like a motherfukr at about 4:15. Reminded me of how my 89 Z24 used to take a corner at 20mph. That said its a bad ass ride. Though I have to admit, the previous gen Gallardo sounded much better!!
