Lamborghini Hurracan, dubbed as the Gallardo replacer, received a very warm response across the globe, including India. But nobody thought that this Supercar or rather monster of a car, will change the fortune of the Raging Bull. The company, which was doing 2000 units annually for the last decade, was able to clock 3000 units in just 10 months, thanks to the Hurracan.
Out of these 3000 units, 1000 units were sold in the US alone. In 2013, Lamborghini managed to sell only 2,121 cars and 2,406 units in 2008. But the good news for the Lamborghini doesn't end here, they are hopeful of crossing the 3500 units before the year end. Although Lamborghini's success can't be credited only to the brutally handsome pair of the Hurracan and the Aventador.
Alessandro Farmeschi, COO, Lamborghini, said in a statement, “In the Americas we worked together with our dealer partners to outline their launch outreach strategy from a new perspective. How to make their events and communications bold yet welcoming. As a result, we are watching a success story unfold. As the Huracán arrives in-market, consumers are anxiously waiting to experience this vehicle which is a direct result of these targeted events.”
The Hurracan is powered by the same 5.2-litre V10 petrol engine, which used to power the Gallardo. But, the change is on the power front as the Hurracan produces 602bhp of power and 560Nm of torque, sending the power to all the four wheels. This insane amount of power helps the Hurracan touch the 0-100kmph mark in 3.2 seconds and 0-200kmph mark in only 9.9 seconds, while clocking a top speed of 325kmph.
Lamborghini, surely has snubbed the Ferrari, with the launch of Hurracan, as it is slated to become the largest selling Supercar, worldwide. While the Gallardo did a healthy 14000 units in its tenure, Hurracan, with its sales graph, can surpass the Gallardo numbers, easily.
