Back in February 2014, Lamborghini announced that it received over 700 orders for its latest supercar, the Huracan LP610-4. Now, 10 months after the vehicle’s launch, Lamborghini sold an impressive 3,000 units. According to the company, 1,000 supercars were delivered to the United States.
For those who don’t know, the Huracan uses a 5.2-liter V12 engine that generates 610 hp (448 kW) and 560 Nm of torque.
The engine is able to push the vehicle from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.2 seconds, to 200 km/h (124 mph) in 9.9 seconds, while top speed is in excess of 320 km/h or 200 mph. Despite the impressive performances, fuel consumption is 12.5 liters/100 km while CO2 emissions are 290 g/km.
Taking in consideration that the previous model, the Gallardo, was produced for 10 years and during that period 14,022 vehicles left the factory, we believe that the Huracan will be even more successful.
In 2015 Lamborghini is expected to unveil the Huracan LP 610-4 Spyder and later, the manufacturer will unveil the Superleggera version.
The true elegance and beauty of a Lamborghini lies in its focused power. Its design -- every line, surface and detail – reflects its pursuit of performance, dynamics and speed. This elegance of power is also reflected in the unmistakable, décor-free design of the new Lamborghini Huracan LP 610-4.
Packed in a dynamic body that measures 4,459 mm in length, 1,924 mm in width and 1,165 mm in height, with 2,620 mm in wheelbase, the new Huracan is defined by taut curves and sharp edges. These details were realized thanks to the carmaker’s expertise in aluminum and carbon fiber works and in crafting geometric surfaces. In addition, the Huracan sports one of the distinctive elements of any Lamborghini – the hexagon.
This basic form is present in the front air intakes and their three-dimensional mesh inserts as well as in the air intakes for the engine. This hexagon is also present on the side windows and on the standard Giano wheels.
Lamborghini equipped the new Huracan with an arrow-shaped front end that points downward like a shark’s nose and features two pleats that lends contour to the bonnet. The carmaker also equipped the new Huracan with flat, angular headlamps employing light emitting diode (LED) units.
The daytime running light is produced by light guides forming two Y-shaped contours in each headlamp. Since LED units – long-lasting and energy efficient -- emit light which color temperature (5,500 Kelvin) is close to daylight, they deliver impressive road illumination while placing minimal stress to the eyes.
The front section of the Huracan dons a large air intake that spans across its full width, with body-colored fins cutting strong diagonal lines through this massive aperture. The lower contours of the air intake protrude forward to serve as a splitter.
