Our Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4's engine tells the story of a car that keeps true to its bullfighting theme. The V10 engine is really something to behold and judging from the performance credentials, it is a core feature of the speed success of the car. The V10 engine is normally aspirated and we are sure this is going to give it a lovely growl when the car is on the road. It also has direct and indirect injection technology that gives it an edge compared to new supercars on the market. From this platform of the engine, the supercar can go from 0 - 62mph in 3.2 seconds while the top speed rests at an Olympian high of 202 mph. The engine assists the car to achieve 600 bhp.
The transmission is given an overhaul thanks to a delightful 7-speed dual clutch transmission for the true believers of Lamborghini. The technology of the gearbox is called the Lamborghini Doppia Frizione (LDF) and it works with electronically controlled clutch system that gives power to every wheel of the car. This is clearly a gearbox that means business and it is going to offer a stellar driving experience because of this electronic technology.
The Huracán is seen as the heir to the throne of the Gallardo and we can see why judging from the driving dynamics of the car. Drivers can choose between Strada, Corsa and Sport for different ways to experience the Huracán. According to Autoweek.com, Lamborghini announced that the Huracán is their most fuel efficient car to date. This is helped by improvements in engine technology where the car can do 18.8 mpg according to some tests. Its' fuel efficiency also should help sales skyrocket as more consumers are looking for supercars that they can use on a daily and weekly basis for their lives.
The hybrid chassis of the Huracán shows the marque's commitment to trying new things with this model. Since this model is the successor for the Gallardo, it needs to be lightweight on the road when it is in use. This is why Lamborghini added carbon ceramic brakes to the mix to give it a full flavour. A handy stop/start button keeps everything about the performance in check and puts the driver firmly in control of this magnificent car.
The shell of the Huracán is built on the premise of strength. Lamborghini has always been passionate about the bull motif which is why they named this car after a famous bull from 1879 bullfighting. That said, the exterior is just as strong as a Spanish bull as it is made from carbon fibre reinforced plastic panels. It also includes an aluminium and carbon fibre composite to round out the key materials that make the body so hard. Even though it is made from a tough body, it is still lightweight and this is where the aerodynamic shape truly stands out.
The Huracán's shape is smooth yet muscular, industrial yet glossy at the same time. Painted in Bianco, the body of the Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4 is going to get Lamborghini fans excited about the future of the brand. This model is making sure that style plays an important role in the car.
The Huracán has more width compared to other models of the marque and LED headlights give it a further aggressive look while on the road. Lamborghini's passion for geometry is seen through the engine cover which is covered with hexagonal detailing. Pushing the boundaries of car making to the limit, the exterior of the Huracán makes enthusiasts excited to see what lies behind the body.
When you step onto an aeroplane, you know you are going somewhere and the cabin is going to keep you warm and sheltered. The interior of the Lamborghini Huracán LP610 is designed and styled just like the cabin of a jet and you can tell thanks to the many accents and details that come together. The interior is Nero, a hue that allows the seats and other details of the cabin to come alive. The aviator-like instrument dials that help the driver get from A to B have been made with technology and practicality at the forefront. The leather upholstery in the car is emboldened thanks to the rich leather trims of the cabin.
The premium hides that have been used for the leather upholstery are glossy yet textured so that your Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4 hire experience is memorable. From the cabin, you truly feel like a pilot controlling your destiny especially when you use the paddles for all wheel drive which are easily seen in the cabin. Style accents are included here with the interior matching the exterior's geometric theme. The cabin also has hexagonal detailing inside that shows continuity between the interior and the exterior. When you and your passenger are inside the Huracán, you want to feel like you can go wherever you want. This is one of the most comfortable cabins that Lamborghini has ever manufactured. Since the Huracán is taking over where the Gallardo left off, it's not a surprise that the cabin is smooth, comfortable and fun to be in.
Huracán: the heir with power
Following in the footsteps of the gilded Gallardo would be difficult for another supercar from another marque but not the Huracán. This is a car more than equipped for the challenge. With automotive experts thinking it could be the next big thing, its performance, interior and exterior prove that Lamborghini knows what the automotive world wants and needs by introducing this razor-sharp supercar.
