Microsoft's Turn 10 Studios, creators of the Forza Motorsport racing game franchise, has picked the new Lamborghini Huracan LP 610-4 as the hero car for Forza Horizon 2. The latest installment of the Forza Horizon – arriving this fall exclusively to Xbox One and Xbox 360 -- revolves around the Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4, finished in Midas yellow.
The game is set in Southern Europe and takes the super sport car's Instinctive Technology around Mediterranean landscapes, with weather, Drivatars and endless routes. Forza Horizon 2 is very high in detail, even providing complete and detailed view of the passenger compartment, its original interior, working power windows and headlights.
Players could also customize their own new Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4 in terms of colors and technical specifications. The Forza Horizon 2 will provide 1080p resolution graphics at 30 fps, Turn 10 Studios disclosed during the Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles.
The Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4, powered by naturally aspirated V10 engine, will be playable first on Xbox in Forza Horizon 2.
Lamborghini has been known to create elegantly sculpted ultra-modern super sports cars. With an evolutionary purist design, the Huracán LP 610-4 is unmistakably a Lamborghini. People at the carmaker created the design of the Huracán using its silhouette as its starting point. They aimed to define the Huracán with a single line stretching from the front over the passenger cell to the rear.
They also aimed for the side windows to have a gem-like hexagonal form set into the profile of the Huracán. Not only that, the Huracán’s Lamborghini-stic silhouette is beautifully reflected by main headlamps that use beam in LED technology. Powering the Huracán LP 610-4 is a new 5.2 liter V10 "Iniezione Diretta Stratificata" engine in the Huracán that develops up to 448 kW / 610 hp in output at 8,250 rpm and up to 560 Nm in torque at 6,500 rpm.
The "Iniezione Diretta Stratificata" features a combination of direct and indirect injection, thereby gaining access to more power and torque similar to that of the Gallardo, as well as reduction in fuel consumption and emissions.
Boasting of a power-to-weight ratio of just 2.33 kilograms per hp, the Huracán promises more than just a good performance. All of these allow the Huracán to accelerate from zero to 100 km/h in just 3.2 second and from nil to 200 km/h in 9.9 seconds, as well as reach a top speed of over 325 km/h.
The super sports car’s ECE average fuel consumption is just 12.5 liters per 100 km, equivalent to carbon dioxide emissions of 290 grams per kilometer. This reduced fuel consumption is thanks partly to the Stop & Start technology.
Both the elegance and the beauty of a Lamborghini are identified by its highly concentrated power. After all, the need for speed, dynamics and performance of a Lamborghini defines every line and every detail. This definition is also very true with the new Lamborghini Huracan LP 610-4, which has an essential design that is entirely free from ornamentation.
The inherent power of the Lamborghini Huracan LP 610-4 is wrapped in a dynamic packaging that measures 4,459 mm in length, 1,924 mm in width and 1,165 mm in height, with a wheelbase of 2,620 mm. Its wedge-like appearance is marked by sharp edges and taut curves – an appearance that is achievable through an innovative technology that could shape aluminum and carbon fiber into geometric surfaces. Lamborghini’s characteristic hexagon can be seen on the front air intakes and their 3D mesh inserts as well as in the intake openings for the engine. This hexagonal hexagon can also be found in the side window and on the wheels in Giano design.
New Lamborghini Huracan features an arrow-shaped front end that angles sharply downward – just like the nose of a shark -- with two pleats providing contour to the bonnet. The new Lamborghini Huracan employs LED angular headlamps, each of which features two Y-shaped contours formed by the light guides that generate the daytime running light. Since the color temperature of the LED headlamps is close to daylight at 5,500 Kelvin, they provide outstanding road illumination while putting little stress on the eyes. Furthermore, these energy-efficient LED units are design to last the lifetime of the Huracan.
On the front, the Huracan comes with a large and deep air intake that spans its full width, as marked by strong diagonal lines made possible by fins painted in body color. Just like on a race car, the lower contours of the air intake project forward, thereby forming the front splitter.
