Lamborghini has today unveiled the all-new Huracán, which officially replaces the Gallardo. The new model is set to make its world public debut at the 2014 Geneva Motorshow.
With a total volume of 14,022 cars produced, the Gallardo remains the most successful Lamborghini ever from a sales perspective. Its successor, the new Huracán, has been developed from scratch says Lamborghini.
The new car also evolves the design language of the Gallardo, with the Huracán borrowing and sharing various styling cues from its big brother the Aventador.
Underneath, lightweight design and carbon-fibre come together in a new hybrid chassis – an integrated structure of carbon and aluminum elements. With a dry weight of 1,422 kg, it achieves a power-to-weight ratio of 2.33 kilograms per horse power. The new 5.2 litre V10 engine delivers a maximum power of 610 hp (448 kW) at 8,250 rpm and a maximum torque of 560 Nm at 6.500 rpm. In the new “Iniezione Diretta Stratificata” (IDS), direct and indirect petrol injections are combined. This results in more power and torque with lower fuel consumption and emissions compared with the Gallardo V10 engine, claims Lamborghini.
The car accelerates from 0 to 62mph in 3.2 seconds and to 124mph in 9.9 seconds, and manages an overall top speed of over 202mph. In addition, owing to the use of Stop & Start technology, the combined EU consumption figure has been reduced to 12.5 litres per 100 km (290 g/km CO2 emissions). The engine also complies with EU6 emissions regulation.
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.
While carbon-ceramic brakes are fitted as standard, the “Lamborghini Dynamic Steering” variable steering ratio system and magneto-rheologic suspension damper control are both available as options.
The Huracán will be produced at Lamborghini headquarters in Sant’Agata Bolognese on an entirely newly-equipped production line. Delivery to the first customers is planned for spring 2014.
