The new Lamborghini Huracán has been announced! The successor the Gallardo has arrived in the All New Lamborghini Huracán!
The Huracán replaces Lamborghini’s best-selling model ever as the “entry-level” supercar in the lineup. Unlike most entry-level offerings, there’s nothing economical about it, though.
First, the name: Huracán is Spanish for hurricane, and is the name of the Mayan god of wind, storm, and fire.
Lamborghini also included some electronic aids to keep the Huracán from laying waste to its driver. A steering-wheel mounted switch toggles between “Strada,” “Sport,” and “Corsa” modes, which adjust the behavior of the engine, transmission, all-wheel drive system, and even the sound.
Powering the Huracán is a 5.2-liter direct-injected V10 with 610 horsepower – hence the LP610-4 designation – and about 413 pound-feet of torque. Coupled to a new seven-speed dual-clutch transmission called “Lamborghini Doppia Frizione” (LDF) and all-wheel drive, it will hurl the Huracán from 0 to 62 mph in 3.2 seconds, to 124 mph in 9.9 seconds, and on to a top speed of over 200 mph.
