The very first Lamborghini Huracan has landed in the United States and it has been filmed performing an epic drift as part of what could be the local U.S. commercial for the entry-level Lamborghini supercar.
While we can’t say much about what the car is being filmed for, we can say that it sounds absolutely incredible and is evidently more than happy to kick its tail out around corners!
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.
