The Lamborghini Huracan can go flat out in excess of the official 325 kmph top speed. This has been accomplished by a YouTube user who goes by the virtual name of Thegermansupercars.
The said YouTube user was breathing fire down an unrestricted section of the German Autobahn. Autobahn is the name given to special freeways in Germany, where there are practically no limits for the speed that the vehicles that can attain. So much so that vehicles are even fined for slowing down and endangering the lives of others who are literally flying. All you need is a massive engine backed by slick aerodynamics and good rubber, plus some amount of rear downforce!
At one point of the video spanning eight minutes, the driver manages to push the Lamborghini Huracan till 329 kmph. Lamborghini had earlier stated that the Huracan is good for a top speed in excess of 325 kmph.
The Lamborghini Huracan LP 610-4 was unveiled this March at the Geneva Motor Show. The Lamborghini Huracan will step into the shoes of the Lamborghini Gallardo. As is the tradition with the Lamborghini family, the Huracan shares its name with a fighting bull that displayed extraordinary courage and a very fearless attack sense in the ring.
As if to reinstate that fact about its namesake, the Lamborghini Huracan carries a menacing exterior. Lamborghini’s trademark style statement of outrageous cuts and slashes to the edges and surfaces of the cars are ever present. In addition, there are angry-looking Full LED headlamps, massive air intakes and a majestic four-pipe exhaust system. One can notice that the Lamborghini Huracan shares quite a few cues with the Sesto Elemento and the Aventador, other vehicle models from Lamborghini.
The Lamborghini Huracan features significantly improved interiors and few additions to the instrumentation list. The notable one is the 12.3 inch Digital instrument cluster that shows readouts of important vehicular parameters, as well as infotainment and navigation data.
The Lamborghini Huracan has a 5.2 Liter V10, naturally aspirated engine under its hood. It develops 610 hp of peak power and a massive 560 Nm of peak torque. The engine delivers power to the wheels via a seven speed dual clutch transmission mated to an All Wheel Drive system. The Lamborghini Huracan can 100 kmph from standstill in 3.2 seconds!!
In an earlier report, we had stated that the Lamborghini Huracan will be the protagonist’s car in Microsoft’s new game Forza Horizon 2. You can have a look at it here.
