Lamborghini’s newest supercar, the Huracan LP-610 already occupies an important place in the company’s line-up as this year’s replacement for the Gallardo - its top-selling model of all time. The Italian supercar maker, took the wraps off the elegant and futuristic Huracan - Spanish for hurricane - at the recently concluded 2014 Geneva Motor Show and now we hear, that the Indian arm of the Italian firm is reportedly, planning to commercially launch the Hurcan in the Indian market by September 2014. The Huracan is currently now in India for display purposes to prospective customers.
The 2014 Lamborghini Huracan is 10 per cent lighter than the Gallardo, is built around a hybrid chassis and has a new aluminum and carbon fiber components. Under the hood, is a 5.2-litre, 610PS V10 that transmits power to all four wheels through a new 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. Lamborghini claims a 0 to 100 kmph time of 3.2 seconds and a top speed of 325 kmph. The engine comes mated to a variable drive select 7-Speed dual clutch transmission. Lamborghini has added the stop-start tech to the Huracan and this helps the supercar to achieve a fuel efficiency of 8 kmpl.
As is the case with every Lamborghini, the Huracan too, has been aggressively styled from every angle. The low slung sports car builds on the Gallardo's sleek lines, with a new silhouette that has big side air intakes, a grille with mesh inserts and LED-only headlamps. The Giano design 20-inch wheels look awesome and the C-pillar gives one impression of the iconic Miura. The Lamborghini Huracan will be offered in 17 colour options, of which the company says, seven are new.
Like the Gallardo, the Huracan caters to well-heeled sports car enthusiasts. The interior comes standard in black with soft Nappa leather and Alcantara, a suede-like material, on the heated seats, door panels and dashboard. There's also a 12.3-inch color instrument panel for car and infotainment data.
Lamborghini is claiming that it has already received over 1,000 bookings for the Huracan globally, even since the car was first showcased. The Italian company has not yet disclosed the sticker price for the Indian market, but we reckon it to be around Rs 3.5 crore ex-showroom.
