Revealed earlier this year and picking up where the Gallardo left off, the Lamborghini Huracán is aptly named with the Spanish word for ‘hurricane’.
A 5.2-litre V10 produces 602 bhp, with the package capable of accelerating from 0-62 mph in 3.2 seconds and reaching a top speed of 202 mph. The power of the V10 engine is brought to the road via a new 7-speed dual clutch transmission “Lamborghini Doppia Frizione”, or “LDF” for short.
In what the Italian manufacturer describes as the new benchmark in luxury super sports cars, the four-wheel-drive Huracán features a lightweight, hybrid chassis made from carbon-fibre and aluminium and ceramic brakes.
After its official unveiling at the Geneva Motor Show in March, the new supercar from the House of the Raging Bull, made its official dynamic debut at the Ascari Circuit and on the mountain roads around Marbella in Spain.
Designed and developed totally from scratch, the Huracán will aim to surpass the Gallardo, which, with a total volume of 14,022 cars produced, remains the most successful Lamborghini ever.
