Lamborghini has just released a video showcasing the design of the brand new Lamborghini Huracan with Lamborghini design boss Filippo Perini narrating the clip.
Obviously inspired by the range-topping Lamborghini Aventador along with the Sesto Elemento, there’s certainly no mistaking the Huracan with the car it replaces, the Gallardo. Of course, the design of the base Huracan, currently the only version launched, is nowhere near as insane as some of the later Gallardo’s produced like the Super Trofeo Stradale. However in time, we certainly expect to see the Huracan receiving similar wings and further aerodynamic improvements in future variants.
Under the hood, the Lamborghini Huracan gets a new 5.2 liter V10 engine uprated and heavily revised from the engine that powers the Gallardo. It produces a total of 610 hp at 8,250 rpm and 560 Nm of torque from 6,500 rpm. These figures allow for a sprint from 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.
Mated to this engine is a brand new seven-speed dual-clutch transmission; the very first in Lamborghini’s history. It provides seamless shifts and promises to make the Huracan a dream to drive. The Huracan is also built around a carbon fiber and aluminium platform set to also be used in the next Audi R8.
