On its website Special Wedding Cars claims the Lamborghini Huracan “never fails to capture hearts and minds.”
The company said: “Taking its name from the Spanish for hurricane, the Lamborghini Huracan is a whirlwind of a super-car.

“The powerful V10 pushes the Huracan to an impressive 610 bhp at 8250 rpm taking you from standstill to 62 mph in a breath-taking 3.2 seconds.
It said: “Hiring a Lamborghini Huracan with its lean angular looks and crisp sharp lines will enhance any special occasion.”
