Yes, there is Mantis Green and a few yellows and even a Creamsicle orange shade. The 90-second video below is a must-watch drift and burnout feat. It is part of the Hexagon Project web series for the Huracan’s launch — which basically sends two Brits to Italy on a mission to hoon the newest, hottest Lambo in the world.   All-new double-clutch box, 3.2-seconds to 62-mph, and a much more pronounced rear torque bias …
