It is the replacement for the brand’s most successful car, the Gallardo.
It replaces the hugely popular Gallardo, and very clearly draws from the Gallardo’s base designs.
A sleek and smooth design in the traditional wedge shape, the sharp light assemblies and the overall low-slung look look extremely pleasing, and not only to the Lambo fans.
Under the hood of the beauty, lies the familiar 5.2-litre V10 that makes 610 PS and 560 Nm. The engine is mated to a new 7-speed dual-clutch with all-wheel drive, that Lambo calls ‘Lamborghini Doppia Frizione’. 0-100 TAKES 3.2 seconds while top speed is 325 kmph.
The chassis is developed from the Audi R8’s space-frame design. Not surprisingly, it uses a lot of carbonfibre and aluminium.
The Huracán will make its public debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2014.
Typical of Lamborghini’s naming convention, the ‘Huracán’ comes from the name of a famous fighting bull of the Spanish Conte de la Patilla breed. The ‘LP 610-4’ stands for the longitudinally mounted V10 engine, making 610 PS with a four-wheel-drive syste.
There is a driving dynamics system, controllable via a steering wheel-mounted switch that can switch between three different modes, namely Street, Sport and Race.
The interiors get a 12.3inch TFT to display instrumentation. Apart from displaying the rev counter, speedometer and trip computer, it also has the navigation system and infotainment functions. The console, dashboard and the transmission tunnel speak of a jet-like design. The Nappa leather and Alcantara upholstery add to the luxury.
