We pair up two great icons – the Great Ocean Road with the Lamborghini Huracan – and get a glimpse of driving divinity.
Few places in the world can inspire as much awe and marvel at nature’s wonder as Victoria’s Coastline along the Great Ocean Road. Known as one of Australia’s premier drives, it’s home to some of our country’s most spectacular scenery, extraordinary natural heritage, and a few hundred kilometres of winding highways that seem purpose built for one of the world’s favourite supercars. The Lamborghini Huracan.
It starts at Torquay, a small town with a big place in the heart of every surfer, and traces what is affectionately known as the ‘Surf Coast’. See Bell’s Beach, home of the Ocean Classic surfing competition, and where the last scene in Point Break was filmed (the 1991 original, not that 2015 abomination). From there, continue to Cape Otway, where the ‘Shipwreck Coast’ starts. This is where the scenery starts getting truly heavenly.
Jutting from the waves like ancient limestone sentinels, the Twelve Apostles are amongst Australia’s most awesome and fear-inspiring rock formations. From the vantage point of the Great Ocean Road, they’re an unforgettable sight and well worth bringing the SLR along for, but to sailors of the 19th Century, they spelled nothing but trouble. Explorer Matthew Flinders put it perfectly when he said, “I have seldom seen a more fearful section of coastline”. The twenty or so ships that sunk there are testimony to the truthfulness of the quote.
Of course, it’s not only the breathtaking views that’ll make you a believer. The Lamborghini Huracan is the answer to every driving enthusiast’s prayer. With road hugging abilities few other cars can muster, you’ll be able to take full advantage of the Huracan’s pinpoint steering on the many tight curves the winding coastline throws at you. As you pull out of each corner, you’ll feel like you’ve sprouted wings and grown a halo.
