The Lamborghini Huracan LP610-4 has seen her public unveil at the 2014 Geneva Auto Show in early March, and the response was impressive to say the least, the order book has been filling up ever since the car was shown during special VIP events ahead of the Geneva Show, by mid February 700 firm orders were already booked ... by the time the car reached Geneva the count was already over 1,000 units, so it is obvious the new V10 Huracan is an instant sales success ... even before the first customer car has been delivered or any journalist testing was performed.
In early statements Automobili Lamborghini SpA mentioned they are not going down the same route as with the Gallardo, releasing countless different evolutions and special editions ... the line up for the Huracan should be a lot smaller, we now have the initial LP610-4 model that will remain the base until a facelift evolution will come around ... next up will be a topless version, most likely called the Huracan LP610-4 Spyder that might see the light of day as early as 2015 already and naturally a lightweight, more powerful version will be required too, something like a Huracan LP650-4 Superleggera that will be unveiled relatively soon too as it will be the base for the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo series race car to succeed the current Gallardo based car.
That means things could get really interesting in 2015 already, the 2014 Blancpain Super Trofeo series will use the Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera based car until the end of the season with the world champion race that combines the winners for the European, the Asian and the American Super Trofeo Series to decide who takes the title of world champion ... but that also means the 2015 season could require a brand new car, based on the Huracan and preferably with more power and less weight so the Squadra Corse department in Sant'Agata can develop their new race car in time.
But lets focus on the road going Huracan LP610-4 Spyder first, I guess the canvas foldaway roof from the Gallardo will no longer be used and a lightweight carbon fibre unit will take its place for the Huracan, when open the V10 Bull should show a very nice and clean profile but I still rendered it with stylish roll-over bars behind the seats, this breaks the otherwise straight line from front to rear and it is a valuable safety measure to protect the driver and passenger in case of an accident.
Naturally the entire rear section has been modified to convert the closed coupé into an open top Spyder, the shoulder mounted air intakes are lowered but still there and functional while the engine cover is also lowered behind the seats, I went for the glass option cover so people can admire the beautiful V10 engine surrounded by the new Lamborghini Forged Composite material ... and while I was thinking about the Huracan LP650-4 Superleggera I decided to create the convertible counterpart too ... check out the renders for a Lamborghini Huracan LP650-4 Performante I created, finished either in Bianco Icarus or Rosso Mars.
