Following on from months of spy shots, teaser images throughout the last few weeks and recently leaked images, the Lamborghini Gallardo’s successor has officially been revealed in the form of the Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4.
Under the hood, the Lamborghini Huracán receives a new 5.2-liter V10 engine uprated and heavily updated from the engine of Gallardo’s. It produces a total of 610 PS, or 602 hp at 8,250 rpm and 560 Nm of torque at a high 6,500 rpm. Consequently, the brand new Huracán can sprint from a standstill to 100 km/h in just 3.2 seconds, from 0-200 km/h in just 9.9 seconds and a top speed in excess of 325 km/h.
This power is then sent to all four wheels via a brand new 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. Just like the Lamborghini Aventador, the new Huracán features three different driving modes. These are Strada, Sport and Corsa. Each of the different modes adjust the behaviour of the new transmission as well as the engine behaviour, sound, electronic stability control and the all-wheel drive system. Helping to bring the Lamborghini Huracán to a stop are carbon ceramic brakes as standard. Unfortunately, Lamborghini has yet to reveal further specifications about the upgraded braking system.
The backbone of the new Huracán comes in the form of a carbon fiber and aluminium built chassis helping to slightly reduce the Huracán’s overall weight from the Gallardo to 1,422 kg. That results in a power to weight ratio of just 2.33 kg per horsepower. Another new feature of the Lamborghini Huracán is the as standard Stop & Start system resulting in a combined European cycle of 12.5 liters per 100 km while emitting 290 g/km of CO2 emissions.
From a visual standpoint, the Huracán shares many of its design elements with the Aventador as well as the limited run Sesto Elemento. The new design has also seen the addition of new LED equipped headlights inspired by those on the Aventador. Obviously, every body panel of the Huracán has been changed when compared to the Gallardo. One of the most prominent new visual changes comes at the rear with the redesigned glass engine cover which stretches down from the roofline unlike the Gallardo. Another neat feature of the Huracán is the different quad exhaust pipe layout.
Inside, the Huracán features a completely redesigned interior very similar to the Aventador’s. As a result, it features a similar 12.3 inch full-colour TFT instrument panel providing all the key details to the driver. The new TFT display even showcases navigation and various infotainment functions. The interior is then covered in fine Nappa leather and Alcantara.
Starting next month, the Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4 will be shown in over 60 cities around the world during over 130 private preview events. It will then make its public debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March. The first customer deliveries will begin in spring 2014.
