In the same year Lamborghini turned 50, the Italian luxury car brand celebrated the company’s anniversary by releasing the Lamborghini Egoista, a 600 horsepower 5.2-liter V10 concept hypercar, and now – a few months after the final stop of the Grande Giro d’Italia in Sant’Agata Bolognese – has presented the Lamborghini Huracàn LP 610-4. Unveiled ahead of the 2014 Geneva motor show, the Huracàn was designed as the successor to Automobili Lamborghini’s most successful production car ever – the Gallardo. Wrapped in a blanket of sharp edges, monolithic and sculpted volumes with precise surfaces, it references styling cues from it’s bigger brother – the aventador.
When paired with a 7-speed dual-clutch ‘Lamborghini Doppia Frizione’ (LDF) gearbox and a new 5.2 liter V10 engine that delivers 610 horsepower to all four wheels, the raging bull hits 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.2 seconds and to 200 km/h (124 mph) in 9.9 seconds before topping out at over 325 km/h ( 200 mph). Within the interior, the Huracàn is dominated by an innovative cockpit: a 12.3 inch full-color TFT instrument panel delivers all car information to the driver – from rev counter to navigation maps and infotainment functions – and is complemented by fully upholstered fine nappa leather and alcantara throughout.
’Like the Gallardo and most other Lamborghini models, derives its name from the world of bullfighting. The fighting bull Huracán of the Spanish Conte de la Patilla breed was known for his outstanding courage and strong sense of attack. He fought in Alicante in august 1879, showing his unrelenting character and remaining defiant and invincible, thus entering into the legend of fighting bulls’ history.’
