New Lamborghini Huracán unveiled
Latest model will make its world public debut at the Geneva Motorshow 2014
With a total volume of 14,022 cars produced, the Lamborghini Gallardo has been the most successful Lamborghini ever. Now, Lamborghini introduces its successor, the new Huracán, which has been developed from scratch at the Automobili Lamborghini headquarters in Sant’Agata Bolognese on an entirely newly-equipped production line. Like the Gallardo, the name is derived from the world of bullfighting. The fighting bull Huracán of the Spanish Conte de la Patilla breed was known for his outstanding courage and strong sense of attack. The Lamborghini Huracán will make its world public debut at the Geneva Motorshow 2014. With a dry weight of 1,422 kg it enables not only the excellent power-to-weight ratio of just 2.33 kg per horse power, but also guarantees race-car precision with outstanding stiffness. The new 5.2 litre V10 engine delivers a maximum power of 448 kW / 610 HP at 8,250 rpm and a maximum torque of 560 Nm at 6.500 rpm. The Huracán delivers top speed of over 325 km/h and the acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.2 seconds and to 200 km/h in 9.9 seconds. The power of the V10 engine is brought to the road via the new 7-speed dual clutch transmission ‘‘Lamborghini Doppia Frizione’’ (LDF) and fully electronically controlled four-wheel drive system. Starting from January 2014 the Huracán will be the protagonist of over 130 private preview events in more than 60 cities throughout the world. Private preview events will be held for qualified prospects only and delivery to the first customers is planned for spring 2014.
