DMC releases Cairo Edition style kit for Lamborghini Huracan

Article by Andrew Christian, on November 27, 2015

DMC, an auto tuner company from Germany, has long been known for raising the performance and style of many famous high-end vehicles to new heights. DMC is famous though for its work on Lamborghinis. It was some months ago that DMC showed the Stage 3 styling kit it made for the Huracan.

While the Huracan already had that aggressive look, DMC’s tuning built on it. DMC did not stop there as it elevated the style of the Lamborghini Huracan to the next level with the "Cairo Edition." Fans of their work though will see that there are similarities with the Stage 3 aero kit.

One of these is the adjustable rear wing that can be placed in three settings: City Cruising, Fun Mode, or GT Track Day. This new kit also has the same side skirts, the same front lip, and the forged and wide alloy wheels.

In fact the only difference the new kit has with the Stage 3 is that the interior has new amenities while the exterior now comes in a black and wild orange scheme. This begs the question of why it is called as a special edition in the first place.

The Lamborghini Huracan LP 610-4 is the brand’s way of showing the world that it could take its design language to the next level. Not only is the form sculpted beautifully but the design is both edgy and bold. The design was started by focusing on the silhouette of the Huracan.

They came up with a car that had this line that starts at the front end which then stretches towards the rear while going over its passenger cell. The side windows are also unique as they had that hexagonal shape that makes it appear as if a gem has been put into its profile.

Even at night the features of the LP 610-4 cannot be ignored. All of its lights, even the main headlamps, use LED technology which is considered by many as the first for a super sports car. The cockpit has also been improved such that it now dwarfs the interior.

Take the 12.3-inch TFT display for example, not only has it been configured to have different modes but it also gives the driver all the information needed and presents them in a virtual format. The design of the interior has a light feel to it given the slender lines found on its instrument mounts and the center tunnel.

The materials used on the interior make it unique. Another big plus is the fact that it can be customized. The detail of the craftsmanship is also very amazing as it gives the interior a refined quality. Carrying the body of the Huracán LP 610-4 is the new hybrid chassis that combines the use of aluminum and carbon fiber parts and a good example of excellent technical work.

Due to the material used, the chassis is ultralight resulting in dry weight totalling 1,422 kilograms. Since the chassis is also stiff despite the weight, this gives it almost the same handling as that of a race car.

The 5.2-liter V10 engine is able to deliver 448 kW / 610 hp of power at 8,250 rpm and 560 Nm of maximum torque at 6,500 rpm. It also has the "Iniezione Diretta Stratificata" which manages to combine indirect and direct injection resulting not just in better power and torque but lower emissions and fuel consumption too.

Maximum speed of the Huracán exceeds 325 km/h with acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in merely 3.2 seconds and 0 to 200 km/h 9.9 seconds. With the Stop & Start technology, it has a measured ECE average fuel consumption of 12.5 liters per 100 km with emissions of 290g of CO2 per km.
