The latest bull from Italy 2015 Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4 is not only presenting the successor to the iconic Gallardo, but is also redefining the benchmark for luxury super sports cars in this segment. Taking inspiration and design cues from the Murcielago successor, the Aventador, the new 2015 Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4 continues the saga featuring some of the latest visual touches such as unique head- and taillights modeled after the ones from the insane Reventon.
Originally, the Gallardo successor was penned to carry the name, Cabrera. Though in a quick turnaround, the Huracán does equally just the job just as well, following the brand’s latest theme of naming their cars after infamous types of bull. The word Huracán basically means hurricane, but it still has bull origins. It is named after a fighting bull named Huracán of the Spanish Conte de la Patilla breed from the 1870s, said to be known for “outstanding courage and strong sense of attack.” Either way, it is perfectly fitting.
In terms of design, the Huracán takes many of its cues from both the Aventador and Gallardo. The overall styling in typical Lambo fashion, sports sharp edges and the body is designed with such precision that makes it unmistakably a Lamborghini. Compared to the more vertically styled headlights of the outgoing Gallardo, the Huracán features horizontal lights similar to the 4-door Lamborghini Estoque concept. Carried over from the styling of the Gallardo, quad exhaust pipes highlight the Huracán’s angular rear-end.
On the inside, the Huracán seems to be a standard Lambo affair, albeit a much angular, more aggressive one. Both the center console and air vents make the most use of angles, with both jutting prominently from the dash. The interior is finished in Fine Nappa leather and Alcantara, with multiple colour options. 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. A steering wheel draped in leather accompanied by paddle shifters top off the interiors.
The Huracán also receives an updated driver and dynamics selection system featuring three modes: Strada for the street, Sport, and Corsa for the track. The driving modes influence gearbox and engine behavrious, sound, the four wheel drive system and the electronic stability control system. Optional is a variable ratio steering system called Lamborghini Dynamic Steering, and magneto-rheologic suspension damper control, also adjustable via the three modes if equipped. Carbon ceramic brakes are standard.
Under the hood, the Huracán comes with an updated version of the Gallardo’s V10, which still displaces 5.2-litre like the Gallardo’s engine, though it receives direct-injection. The result is a maximum output of 610 horsepower at 8,250rpm and a peak torque of 560Nm at 6,500rpm. Lamborghini says, that Huracán features a new 7-speed DCT ‘Lamborghini Doppia Frizione’ (LDF) and fully electronically controlled four-wheel drive system. Standstill to 100 kmph takes just 3.2 seconds, and the car will hit 200 kmph in 9.9 seconds, on to a top speed of over 325 kmph, and offers a mileage of 8 kmpl. The Huracán has a dry weight of 1,422kg.
Starting from January-2014, Lamborghini Huracán will be showcased at 130 private preview events in more than 60 cities throughout the world and will be make its world debut at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. Price will be announced closer to launch date.
