Lamborghini Huracan Revealed; New Hunk Gets its Name from a Fighting Bull

December 24, 2013, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

The Geneva Motorshow to be held in 2014 will see Lamborghini’s new Huracan LP 610-4, which will replace its Gallardo model.

The company is all set to give you a driving experience that combines performance with easy to drive features and ultimate luxury.

Huracan, the brand new entry, is inspired from the world of bull fighting. Huracan was the name of a legendary fighting bull that fought in Alicante in August 1879. It is lean and weighs just 1422kg thanks to the use of carbon-fibre and a new hybrid chassis which is an integrated structure of carbon and aluminum elements.


The vehicle comes with a 5.2-litre V10 engine delivering 448kW at 8250rpm and 560Nm at 6500rpm. Top speed stands at over 325km/h. The sprint from zero to 100km/h takes just 3.2 seconds. It also comes with a new stop-start mechanism which drops the consumption figure to 12.5 litres per 100km.

Also, this one comes with a new seven-speed dual clutch transmission that is now being called “Lamborghini Doppia Frizione” along with an electronically controlled four-wheel drive system. It offers different driving modes that can be accessed from the driving dynamics selector switch on the steering wheel.

It offers three setups: STRADA, SPORT and CORSA – these modes influence several systems like the gearbox and engine, the sound, the drive system and electronic stability control.


The Huracán brakes are ceramic brakes but variable steering ratio system and magneto-rheologic suspension damper control are available options that you can choose from.

This hunk will be built at Lamborghini headquarters in Sant’Agata Bolognese. The first delivery will take place somewhere around March 2014.
