Following seemingly endless chatter and speculation about what will take the place of the flagship Lamborghini Gallardo, it seems that the official details are in. The Raging Bull has revealed the Lamborghini Huracan as the Gallardo successor. The Huracan (pronounced ‘Ooh-ra-cahn’) should make its official debut at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show-though a nice preview of information has been made available.
The Lamborghini Huracan will serve as the new entry-level sportster, with similar specs and pricing to its exiting sibling. Like the rest of the family, the Huracan is named for a famed fighting bull. The name Huracan hails from a bull that fought in Alicante, Spain in 1879. The bull was known for its defiance and courage, two fine qualities for a supercar that is perhaps looking to change expectations of a base model.
The Lamborghini Huracan at a glance:
- This model is packing a 5.2-liter V10 engine pushing out 610 horses.
- A 7-speed dual clutch transmission.
- The 0-60 mile per hour sprint is achieved in approximately 3.2 seconds with a top speed of 201 miles per hour.
- It can go from 0 to 124 miles per hour in 9.9 seconds, in the event of a hurry.
- Like the Aventador, there will be 3 different performance modes for the Huracan. It delivers more horses and gets better fuel economy than the Gallardo.
- The chassis is comprised of carbon fiber and aluminum.
- Carbon ceramic brakes are standard on this model.
- Variable ratio steering.
- Adjustable suspension is an optional upgrade.
- New LED lighting will provide after dark curb appeal for a nice finishing touch.
- Inside, the Huracan will boast an array of new technology including a customizable 12.3-inch color instrument panel. The bare-bones supercars of the past are being left in the dust.
The cockpit is laden with luxury and technology, a dynamic duo.
While the new Lamborghini Huracan does not have the extreme aesthetics or horsepower of the Aventador, it will be a suitable option for the entry-level buyers with all the power and prestige expected from the brand.
Lamborghini will be promoting the Gallardo successor with over 130 private previews around the globe beginning next month. The rest of the world will likely have to wait for the Geneva show for additional photos and production information.
