The Lamborghini Huracán is an all-new vehicle that sports a 610 horsepower (at 8,250 rpm), 5.2-liter V10 that makes 413 lbs-feet of torque (560 Nm) at 6,500 rpm. This is a direct-injected engine known as “Iniezione Diretta Stratificata” which makes a cleaner, meaner machine. According to Lamborghini, the top speed of the Lamborghini Huracán is about 202 mph (325 km/h) and 0 to 100 km/h (0 to 62 mph) takes just 3.2 seconds. Despite the massive performance, the Lamborghini Huracán complies with EU6 emissions regulations.
Sweet mother of speed – it’s painfully sexy.
“The power of the V10 engine is brought to the road via the new 7-speed dualclutch transmission ”Lamborghini Doppia Frizione” (LDF) and fully electronically controlled four-wheel drive system. The different driving modes of the Huracán can be selected via a driving dynamics selector switch in the steering wheel – from traction-oriented on the road to extreme performance on the race track,with three setups of the dynamics system: STRADA, SPORT and CORSA. The different modes ensure extensive modification in road behavior of the Huracán.
In particular they influence the set-ups of several systems, such as the gearbox and engine behavior, the sound, the four-wheel-drive system and electronic stability control. The Huracán’s carbon-ceramic brakes are a standard feature for consistently superb braking performance. The ”Lamborghini Dynamic Steering” variable steering ratio system and magneto-rheologic suspension damper control are both available as options for further customization of the Huracán’s dynamic behavior. They are also calibrated via the three different dynamic set-ups.” – – Lamborghini Media
The Huracán name is based on a fighting bull (Spanish Conte de la Patilla breed) from 1879.
“The interior is dominated by an innovative cockpit. A 12.3 inch full-color TFT instrument panel delivers all car information to the driver, from rev counter to navigation maps and infotainment functions, and can be configured by the driver in different setups. Fine Nappa leather and Alcantara distinguish the interior, with several color combinations offered to ensure broad individualization options. The design of dashboard and central tunnel underline a new lightness inthe interior. Superb craftsmanship guarantees the highest quality and sense of luxury throughout.
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 without standing stiffness.” – – Lamborghini Media
The Lamborghini Huracán will be produced at the Automobili Lamborghini headquarters in Sant’Agata Bolognese. The Lamborghini Huracán will make its world public debut at the Geneva Motorshow 2014 and delivery to the first customers is planned for the spring of 2014.
Here’s Lamborghini’s take on the Huracán’s styling and design: The new Huracán revolutionizes the design language of the Gallardo and is pure in its lines: precise technology and top level craftsmanship meet an audacious design with 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. The lateral windows come together to create a hexagonal form inserted like a glass jewel in the car’s profile.
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 as a standard feature for the first time in the segment.
