Lamborghini officially unveiled the 2015 Huracan LP 610-4 at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. Continuing the tradition of naming cars after fighting bulls, Lamborghini revealed the Huracan at the VW Group Night where it also announced that deliveries of the supercar will commence by the end of March.
The Huracan LP 610-4 is powered by an enhanced version of the 5.2-litre V10 engine. Lamborghini could come up with ‘only’ 562bhp for the most powerful stock Gallardo, while, the Huracan produces 602bhp of power and 560Nm of torque. As with most of other Lamborghini cars, power is sent to all four wheels via a new seven-speed dual clutch transmission called Lamborghini Doppia Frizione (LDF). Lamborghini claims a top whack of 325kmph for the Huracan with the first 100kmph coming up in 3.2 seconds. The Huracan uses a new type of hybrid carbon fibre and aluminium construction which will also be seen in the next-generation Audi R8.
Overall, the Huracan looks a bit more civilised and grown up as compared to previous Lamborghini cars, which is also observed in the Aventador. A hexagonal design theme can be observed all around the car especially in the interiors. The bodywork has a three-per cent drag reduction as compared to Gallardo and a whopping 50 per cent increase in downforce. The supercar is produced at the Italian manufacturer’s headquarters in Sant’ Agata Bolognese.
The Gallardo is the best-selling model in Lamborghini’s history, with 14,022 units being produced in 10-years. We can expect a slew of extra variants of the Huracan like a convertible ‘Spyder’, a lightweight ‘Superleggera’ and other special editions to follow in the coming years.
This Huracan along with a slew of other sport cars will make its way to India this year. Lamborghini currently sells the Aventador in India and the Gallardo also used to sell here. So it is just a matter of few months before we see this machine roaring down the city streets here.
