Duke Dynamics presents the Lamborghini Huracan Minotauro

Article by Christian A., on February 24, 2014

After the Ferrari 458 Velocita, Duke Dynamics returned in our tuning section with the all-new Lamborghini Huracan Minotauro. This new tuning pack was designed to upgrade the Huracan’s design for those who don’t like it.

As you can see from the photos, the new body kit includes a new front bumper with a carbon fiber front lip spoiler, a new rear bumper with a carbon fiber air diffuser and a new carbon fiber rear lip spoiler.

There are no details regarding any upgrades at the interior. We expect to see the same 12.3 inch full-color TFT instrument panel, as well as the fine Nappa leather and Alcantara. The engine of the car remains untouched, which means we find the same 5.2-liter V10 engine that generates 610 hp (448 kW) and 560 Nm (413 lb-ft) of torque.

Using a dual-clutch 7-speed transmission, the Lamborghini Huracan hits 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.2 seconds, 200 km/h (124 mph) in 9.9 seconds and has a top speed electronically limited at 325 km/h or 202 mph.

What makes a Lamborghini elegant are the highly concentrated power and its innate beauty. Each detail and each line has been included with dynamics, performance, and speed in mind. The same is true for the Huracán LP 610-4 where the important element is the design. Further, the model is hermetically sealed and does not have any ornamentation whatsoever.

The front section of the new Huracán has a shape similar to an arrow and angled downward sharply much like a shark’s nose. Then there are two pleats which help add curve to the vehicle’s hood. The angular headlamps are flat and equipped with LEDs, considered as an innovation especially for this super sports car class. Light guides meanwhile create the daytime running light which forms in each headlamp a pair of Y-shaped curves.

This gives this new model an appearance of a predator preparing to pounce on a prey. For the LED light itself, the color temperature is measured to be 5,500 Kelvin. What this means is that the light is almost similar to daylight, resulting in offering exceptional lighting to the road while making sure that it does little to put stress on the eyes. In addition, the LEDs have been designed to ensure that they last as long as the vehicle and at the same time are remarkably energy efficient.

Cutting deep on the front section is a large air intake which also goes across the whole width. This results in the air intake becoming the dominant feature of this area. There are also fins coming in the same color as that of the body and cut strong diagonal lines on the intakes. Like what one sees on a race car, the lower curves on the air intake have been positioned in a more forward manner shaping a splitter.

The dynamic wedge and its curves are bordered with dimensions having total length of 4,459 mm, overall width at 1,924 mm, and a height of 1,165 mm. Wheelbase meanwhile is at 2,620 mm. It is clear that the sharp edges are able to provide a contrast with the tight curves. To make this happen, innovative technology was needed which works well with both carbon fiber and aluminum.

It is also the same for geometric surfaces. Enthusiasts likely are familiar with the fact that for the Lamborghini, the hexagon is the characteristic basic form. These can be seen in a number of features like the air intakes in the front and the three-dimensionally shaped mesh inserts. It can be seen as well in the side windows and the intake openings for the model’s engine. This form is even in the Giano designed standard-fit wheels.
