Lamborghnini Unveils The New Huracán (Insert Your Own Joke)

Recommended Posts

Lamborghini has revealed the successor to the Gallardo, the all new Huracán.

The small Lamborghini takes a lot from the bigger Aventador in its design. The angular front end features massive airducts and LED headlights. The side profile is a dead ringer for the Aventador with airducts around the door and low roofline. In the back is a look that is very reminiscent of the Reventón with a short length and narrow tailights.

Moving inside, the Huracán comes with reconfigurable 12.3-inch screen that acts as the instrument cluster and loads of Nappa leather and Alcantara.

Under the hood is a 5.2L V10 engine with 610 horsepower and 413 pound-feet of torque. A new seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox and all-wheel drive deliver all of that power to the road. Lamborghini quotes a 0-60 MPH time of of 3.2 seconds and a top speed of 201 MPH. Like the Aventador, the Huracán will offer three different drive modes that alter engine response, sound levels, power distribution and stability control.

The Huracán will debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March, with sales beginning sometime later.

The exterior is pretty enough, and the performance is at least adequate if not a significant upgrade from the Gallardo. The Avantador inspired interior though is a joke. It's a cross between 1980s boom-box fascia and "F-117" gimmickry, and just cheapens the the car.

It's very similar to my old '88 Fiero Formula...125i1b4.jpg

I dunno, going to 601 horses and 413 lb-ft of torque, are pretty big jumps over the Gallardo’s 552 ponies and 398 lb-ft.

8.9% in power & 3.8% in torque respectively. As I said, very decent, but not enough to really register a big change in performance of the vehicle. Also, numbers that are very easily attained with say a much cheaper powerplant like the upcoming (blown) LT4 Pushrod V8 so nothing particularly exclusive to the "supercar club".

True enough, but raw numbers is only part of the performance equation.

Also, you can get 600 horsepower from a turbo 4, but you wouldn't put it in an Italian supercar, nor would you a `merican V8.
