It has always been a matter of importance for any auto enthusiast when a Lambo is launched, and this time the company has made it’s return with a replacement of there best selling supercar till date, the Gallardo, with more than 10,000 units being sold from its production since 2003.Officially debuted at the Geneva Motor show last month is the brand new successor Lamborghini Huracàn LP 610-4,smarter sleeker and definitely more powerful than the Gallardo.
Huracàn is the Spanish name for hurricane,which the company has aptly kept, as this baby will blow your minds off. Now what do we expect from this supercar, well to start with the design it has the looks a bit curvy at the front with loads of hexagonal elements and surface depth and the dual y shaped front and rear lamps giving the car a masculine look clearly reminding us the exotic wedge shaped concept that the company boasted in the 70’s and the front expression of the car is made for us to remember that a Huracàn is coming!!!!!.Under the hood the 2014 Huracàn has a mid mounted 5.2 litre V-10 engine driving all four identical to the oldie Gallardo but produces a whooping 601bhp and 413lb-ft of torque when compared to 522bhp and398lb-ft of the later, which puts this car under the same league as that of the Aventador. There is a new seven speed dual clutch gear system replacing the old single clutch gear system, but to the dismay of few us the company wont be producing any manual transmission as of now.
the Huracán shares a notable amount of components with Audi’s next-generation R8, as the two make use of Volkswagen Group’s modular sports-car architecture (MSS). In the Lambo’s case, the structure uses a combination of carbon fiber and aluminum to deliver a claimed dry weight of about 3100 pounds; moistened with fluids, we’d up that figure by at least 100, but that’s still light compared to the Gallardo, which weighed about 3500 pounds depending on the trim. Lamborghini says the lighter Huracán and its engine stop-start system should return better fuel economy, although given this is a high-performance 10-cylinder supercar, don’t expect miracles. Reduced mass also should bring Huracàn-bettering performance, but we’ll have to wait to verify this with our own testing. For now, the estimation machine in Sant’Agata says the new Lambo is good for a 3.2-second 0-to-62-mph time and a top speed eclipsing 202 mph(323kmph).
Among its onboard electronic witchcraft, the Huracán offers an wide range of driver- selectable modes for the transmission, throttle mapping, all-wheel-drive system, stability control, and optional magnetorheological dampers and variable-ratio steering rack. These settings are distilled to three key choices on the steering wheel by a button called A.N.I.M.A(Italian meaning-soul): Strada (street), Sport, and Corsa (race), and are selectable via a thumb switch on the steering wheel. Carbon-ceramic brakes are standard. The cabin continues the have-it-your-way theme, and offers what’s sure to be a bevy of color choices for the Nappa leather and Alcantara that seem to cover everything. The interior design has been brought into this decade, and shares its angular and sculptural look with, you guessed it, the Aventador. The gauge cluster consists of a customizable 12.3-inch color TFT screen, and the central tunnel is thinner and more elegant than the Gallardo’s chunky piece.
This new breed of luxury supercar promises us a lot but only time will tell to what extent this raging bull can race ones heart but we do expect this super car will be simply “magnifico” and will give full justice to its road tearing name Huracàn.
