The raging bull automaker is introducing its successor to the iconic Gallardo in a big way. The Huracan LP 610-4 will be the subject of more than 130 private preview events in 60-plus cities throughout the world starting in January 2014.
The Gallardo was produced for 10 years, with 14022 examples leaving the factory. The Huracan will pick up where the Gallardo left off, offering consumers another V10 monster. The name pays tribute to the Spanish bull Huracan, known for his courage and strong sense of attack in the bull ring.
The car features a 5.2L V10 with 610hp at 8,250rpm and max torque of 413 ft-lb at 6,500rpm. The engine is mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission "Lamborghini Doppia Frizione" (LDF) and fully electronically controlled four-wheel-drive system. Lamborghini says the Huracan will rocket from 0- 62mph in 3.2sec and reach a top speed of 201mph.
A new "Iniezione Diretta Stratificata" (IDS) direct and indirect gasoline injection system makes more torque and power with lower fuel consumption and emissions compared to the Gallardo's V10. Fuel conservation is also helped via Stop/Start technology. The power-to-weight ratio of the Huracan is 5.1 lb per horsepower of the supercar's total 3134-lb dry weight.
Three different drive modes -- Strada, Sport, and Corsa -- are available via the driving dynamics selector switch on the steering wheel. These determine the settings of systems such as gearbox and engine behavior, sound, the four-wheel-drive system, and electronic stability control. Carbon-ceramic brakes are standard, while the Lamborghini Dynamic Steering variable steering ratio system and magneto-rheologic suspension damper control are optional and are also calibrated via the three dynamic settings. The car sits on a new chassis constructed of carbon-fiber and aluminum.
The exterior is defined by one line that merges with the front of the cockpit and the rear of the car. A hexagonal form is created at the car's profile by the intersection of the lateral windows. The front is illuminated by LED headlights while all other light functions also feature LED technology.
The interior features fine Nappa leather and Alcantara offered in several color combinations. A 12.3in TFT instrument panel integrates the rev counter, navigation, and infotainment functions.
Lamborghini's newest bull will make its world debut at the 2014 Geneva Motorshow, with deliveries starting spring 2014.
