Automobili Lamborghini, the famous super sports car maker, today revealed the brand new Huracán.
With the new Huracan, Lamborghini is not only presenting the successor to the iconic Gallardo, but is also aiming to redefine the benchmark for luxury super sports cars in this segment. In words of Lamborghini, “the Huracán combines absolute performance with easy-to-drive road behavior and both luxurious and sport-oriented finish”.
Starting from January 2014, the Huracán will be private previewed at over 130 events in more than 60 cities throughout the world.The Lamborghini Huracán will make its world public debut at the Geneva Motorshow 2014.
The design of new Huracán revolutionizes, in typical Lambo fashion, sports sharp edges, monolithic and sculptured volumes and precise surfaces. The silhouette profile is defined by only one line that merges the front with the cockpit and the rear of the car. The lateral windows come together to create a hexagonal form inserted like a glass jewel in the car’s profile.
A striking feature of the design is that not only are the main headlamps equipped with full LED illumination, but all other light functions also feature LED technology as a standard.
The interior 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 can be configured by the driver in different setups. Fine Nappa leather and Alcantara distinguish the interior, with several color combinations offered to ensure broad individualization options.
Huracán sports a new hybrid chassis – an integrated structure of carbon and aluminum elements. With a dry weight of 1,422 kg it enables not only the excellent weight-to-power ratio of 2.33 kilograms per horsepower, but also guarantees race-car precision with outstanding stiffness.
The new 5.2 liter V10 engine delivers a maximum power of 448 kW / 610 HP at 8,250 rpm and a maximum torque of 560 Nm at 6.500 rpm. In the new ‘‘Iniezione Diretta Stratificata’’ (IDS), direct and indirect gasoline injections are smartly combined. This results in more power and torque with lower fuel consumption and emissions compared with the Gallardo V10 engine. The top speed of over 325 km/h and the acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.2 seconds and to 200 km/h in 9.9 seconds quite describe the dynamic experience at the wheel of the Huracán. Also thanks to the Stop & Start technology, the combined EU consumption figure has been further reduced to 12.5 liters per 100 km (290 g/km CO2 emissions). The engine complies with EU6 emissions regulation.
The V10 engine is mated to the new 7-speed dual-clutch transmission ‘‘Lamborghini Doppia Frizione’’ (LDF) and has fully electronically controlled four-wheel drive system. The Huracán’s carbon-ceramic brakes are a standard feature for consistently high braking performance. The ‘‘Lamborghini Dynamic Steering’’ variable steering ratio system and magneto-rheologic suspension damper control are both available as options for further customization of the Huracán’s dynamic behavior.
The Huracán is produced at the Automobili Lamborghini headquarters in Sant’Agata Bolognese on an entirely newly-equipped production line. Delivery to the first customers is planned for spring 2014.
