Recently we posted an image of the new Lamborghini that is set to replace the Gallardo, the Huracán LP 610-4. With a total volume of 14,022 cars produced, the Lamborghini Gallardo has been the most successful Lamborghini ever and, in its ten-year lifecycle, lifted the Lamborghini marque to a whole new level, suffice to say the Huracán has BIG shoes to fill.
There’s been a lot of images of the car flying around the internet that look to be computer generated and somewhat unofficial so we went straight to the source. Yesterday Lamborghini sent us over the official images for the new Huracán which is set to make its world public debut at the Geneva Motorshow early this year.
The new 5.2 litre V10 engine will deliver 610 HP at 8,250 rpm and a top speed of over 325km/h, sprinting from 0-100km/h in just 3.2 seconds. The Huracán brings the power to the road via a new 7-speed dual clutch transmission ‘‘Lamborghini Doppia Frizione’’ (LDF) and electronically controlled four-wheel drive system with carbon-ceramic breaks coming as standard (a notable saving from the Gallardo with the carbon ceramic brake option setting the buyer back over $50k!).
Like it or not (what’s there not to like!) there’s no way that this car isn’t going to be the best Lamborghini ever made. After 10 years perfecting the Gallardo, Lamborghini automotive fans all over the world are itching to find out just how good the Huracán will be, no doubt combining absolute performance with effortless drivability and sublime luxury and craftsmanship!
