Lamborghini is set to launch the new Huracan supercar in India tomorrow. The much talked about Gallardo replacement will be unveiled with proper fanfare in Mumbai tomorrow and will hope to replicate the success of its predecessor.
With the styling similar to that of the Aventador, the new supercar gets angular projector headlamps, massive air intakes on the bumper and multiple creases to aid aerodynamics. It continues to derive power from the same V10 engine of the Gallardo, now retuned to produce 610bhp and 560Nm of torque. With the seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox sending power to all four wheels, the Huracan is capable of getting to 100kph from standstill in just 3.2 seconds and further reach the 200kph mark in 9.9 seconds. The claimed top speed of the new car is 325kph and the Italian manufacturer has added engine start/stop function to improve CO2 emissions. The official emission figures of 290 g/km are pretty impressive for a supercar powered by a V10.
The Huracan's interior is similar to that of the much larger Aventador, but the layout looks a little more organised thanks to the wider size of the instrument cluster. There is a large array of toggle switches on both sides of the steering wheel, while the paddles behind the wheel are massive giving the impression of an extremely busy area. Look at the design carefully and you will not be surprised that it is completely driver centric.
The Huracan LP 610-4 will not have any direct competitor in India with an expected price of over Rs 3 crore. There are few cars on sale in India that offer almost similar performance and cost a lot less, but none of them can match the new Lamborghini in flamboyance.
