The new Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4: A new dimension in Luxury Super Sports Cars
A new era is beginning for Automobili Lamborghini and the luxury super sports car segment by presenting the successor to the iconic Gallardo, the brand new Huracán. With its pure and unique design, an innovative technology package, outstanding dynamics and excellent quality, the Huracán offers a super sports car experience on a whole new level.
The new Huracán, has been developed from scratch down to the very last detail and, like the Gallardo and most other Lamborghini models, derives its name from the world of bullfighting. The fighting bull Huracán of the Spanish Conte de la Patilla breed was known for his outstanding courage and strong sense of attack
A pure and unique design
The new Huracán revolutionizes the design of the Gallardo and develops pure lines: sharp edges, monolithic and sculptured volumes and precise surfaces. The starting point is the silhouette of the Huracán, born out of the desire of creating an automobile, whose profile is defined by only one line that merges the front with the cockpit and the rear of the car.
Also by night is the Huracán unmistakably a Lamborghini. Not only are the main headlamps equipped with full LED illumination, but all other light functions also feature state-of-the-art LED technology.
The interior is dominated by an innovative cockpit, a12.3 inch full-color TFT instrument panel that delivers all car information to the driver. Fine Nappa leather and Alcantara distinguish the interior, with several color combinations offered to ensure broad individualization options. Superb craftsmanship guarantees the highest quality and sense of luxury throughout.
Innovative technology, outstanding dynamics and excellent quality
Systematic lightweight design and Automobili Lamborghini’s extensive expertise in carbon fiber come together in the Huracán’s new hybrid chassis – an integrated structure of carbon and aluminum elements. With a dry weight of 1,422 kg it enables not only the excellent power-to-weight ratio of just 2.33 kilograms per horse power, but also guarantees race-car precision with outstanding stiffness.
The new 5.2 liter V10 engine delivers a maximum power of 448 kW / 610 HP at 8,250 rpm and a maximum torque of 560 Nm at 6.500 rpm. The top speed of over 325 km/h and the acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.2 seconds and to 200 km/h in 9.9 seconds only partially describe the dynamic experience at the wheel of the Huracán.
The power of the V10 engine is brought to the road via the new 7-speed dual-clutch transmission “Lamborghini Doppia Frizione” (LDF) and fully electronically controlled four-wheel drive system. The different modes, STRADA, SPORT and CORSA, ensure extensive modification in road behavior of the Huracán.
Starting from January 2014 the Huracán will be the protagonist of over 130 private preview events in more than 60 cities throughout the world and delivery to the first potential customers is planned for spring 2014.The Lamborghini Huracán will make its world public debut at the Geneva Motorshow 2014 and the prices should be announced at this moment. Normally the Huracán price should not less than the 178.000 Euros asked for a Gallardo LP 560-4 !
