The Pope was recently gifted a $200,000 Lamborghini Huracan (it will be auctioned off for charity). The craziness of this story reminded of us a weekend spent reviewing a MORE expensive Lambo. 

Doing a traditional review of the Lamborghini Huracan Spyder we had in our possession over the summer quickly flew out the window. 

That's primarily because the more interesting story, at least during our few days with such an impressive supercar, was how people reacted when coming across our Lambo convertible. It's as if human beings had spotted a rare animal species roaming the wild, and they just had to be involved with it somehow in the hopes of getting their names on the evening news.   

The interactions became so ridiculous that we decided to keep a log of the top moments:

This is the future, people: Two teens in a beat up white BMW that came up to me in a secluded train parking lot and asked if I could film Instagram "stories" with them in the car. That didn't happen, but I did let them take a picture of the Lambo for their Instagram accounts.

Old people should know better: An older gentleman proceeded to exit his white Ford (F) - Get Reportpickup truck at a busy stop light to congratulate me on the car (I played along and said it was mine) and ask questions. Middle...of...traffic...people.

Stop it: A neighbor asked if they could put their dog in the front seat for a picture for you guessed it, Instagram. That also didn't happen.

This almost made sense: Someone at Starbucks (SBUX) - Get Reportoffered to buy me breakfast if I gave them a ride around the block. While tempting, I declined. 

The Lamborghini Huracan Spyder...the ultimate social media friendly car. For car nuts such as yours truly, it was just a purely fun weekend of driving.
