The Gallardo has cemented itself as the most successful Lamborghini ever. It’s been around for a full decade and in that time it has racked up 14,022 sales – both a damn good run and numbers for a supercar. That said, ensuring that it has a worthy successor to the ‘baby Lambo’ will have been of utmost importance to the Sant’Agata Bolognese based manufacturer. Judging be these first images of that car, the Huracán LP 610-4 is set to become an absolutely epic machine!
Yep, you’ve guessed it, the ‘610’ in the Huracán’s name is a hint at its power output – 610hp of 5.2-liter, naturally aspirated howling V10. This latest evolution of the Lamborghini 10-cylinder is mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission (finally!) and sends drive to all four wheels as the ‘4’ at the end of its rather long name denotes.
Underneath its aggressively styled exterior (which combines visible hints to both the Aventador and the Sesto Elemento) hides a carbon fiber and aluminium chassis that helps keep weight contained. The Huracán hits the scales at 1,422 kg, which will no doubt equip it with some pretty phenomenal handling characteristics. According to Lamborghini it will sprint from standstill to 100km/h (62mph) in 3.2 seconds and reach a top speed of 325km/h (201mph).
The interior borrows heavily from the jet-fighter like cabin of the Aventador – a good thing in my book. There’s a racked center stack where the flip-up cover hiding the start/stop ignition button lies, and an LCD screen making up the main dash instrumentation. The first deliveries are set to roll out in spring next year and we are positively salivating at the thought of getting behind the wheel!
