Just one month after private unveilings of the 2015 Lamborghini Huracan supercar began, Lamborghini has announced that it has already obtained an impressive 700 orders from customers! This number is quite extraordinary, but considering the promised potency of the car along with its design, not overly shocking!
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 Lamborghini Huracan is of course set to debut at the Geneva Motor Show 2014.
