The Lamborghini Huracan has emerged to take the place of the long-running and outgoing Lamborghini Gallardo. Filling the shoes of the flagship Gallardo is certainly a challenge, but the Raging Bull has invested much time and money touting the new family member– even providing California with a Huracan police cruiser. Now we have a chrome Lamborghini Huracan, a bespoke project that likely does not…reflect…the brand’s vision of the supercar but is certainly unique! Just a chrome Lamborghini Huracan. No big deal. At least it is not bubble-gum pink with Hello Kitty interior.

In the event anyone was worried about how the new Lamborghini Huracan would fare in the fierce market, they have sold 700 units in the first month. That is correct, the Lamborghini Gallardo replacement is running over competition and completely surpassing projections—even before the official reveal! The Huracan will take the stage at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show next month.
Want the new Lamborghini Huracan? So have 700 buyers within the first month of its availability in certain markets.
To put things into perspective, total sales for Lamborghini were 2,121 units last year. That makes the sale of 700 Lamborghini Huracan cars in one month a total shock. The brand spared no expense in quietly drumming up anticipation for the Huracan, which certainly had large shoes to fill from the long-reigning Gallardo. Because the Gallardo was king for so long, the replacement will likely be worth much more down the road, making it an ideal collector car to scoop up.
The Lamborghini Gallardo’s replacement was caught drifting on the streets recently, showing its agile side. The Huracan will pick up where the Gallardo left off, offering an exotic sports car option that can be driven daily and is more low-key than say, the Lamborghini Aventador. Check out the Lamborghini Huracan drifting in the short clip below.
The Lamborghini Huracan drifting is a rodeo style 8-second ride.
The Lamborghini Gallardo reigned supreme for eons, unloading over 14,000 units during its production years. The Huracan has its hands full attempting to fill such a huge slot, and the drifting video will certainly help to show that it can maneuver its way there. It is expected that a replacement model be superior to that which it is replacing, and Lamborghini has been working hard to gain faith in the Huracan.
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.
