The era of the Lamborghini Gallardo came to a close after a production span that lasted just over a decade. This period was marked by the iconic presence of the Gallardo on the supercar market, culminating in the release of the final evolution, the LP570-4 Squadra Corse, as a limited edition model. With a total of 14,022 units sold, the Gallardo set a formidable standard that its successor will have to diligently strive to meet, facing the significant challenge of succeeding in such a legendary car.
On December 20, 2013, Automobili Lamborghini SpA revealed official renders of their new luxury super sports car, the Huracán LP610-4. At the time, the unveiling was limited to high-detail renders that displayed either a yellow or white version, as actual photos were not available on the press site. Nevertheless, all details about this new standard-setter can be found in the accompanying press release.
Upon examining the Lamborghini Huracán LP610-4, it becomes apparent that the camo-covered prototype captured over the preceding weeks didn’t conceal any surprises. Yet, fans of the brand still express interest in seeing the special wheels from those test cars made available as an option on the production version of the Huracán.
Acceleration: The Huracan LP 610-4 can go from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 2.5 seconds, thanks to its powerful V10 engine and lightweight design.
Top Speed: The car has a top speed of 201 mph, making it one of the fastest supercars on the market.
Handling: The Huracan LP 610-4 features an all-wheel drive system, which provides excellent traction and stability on the road. The car also has a sport-tuned suspension and advanced electronic systems that enhance its handling and driving dynamics.
Braking: The Huracan LP 610-4 comes equipped with high-performance brakes, which provide exceptional stopping power and fade resistance, even under heavy use.
The Lamborghini Huracán LP610-4’s performance is powered by a 5.2 liter V10 engine, a design carried over from the previous Gallardo model, which had the same displacement. This engine has been enhanced to produce 610hp at 8,250rpm and 560N of torque at 6,500rpm. With an overall weight of just 1,422kg, these numbers translate into rapid acceleration, achieving 0 to 100km/h in a mere 3.2 seconds and reaching 200km/h in 9.9 seconds, just shy of the 10-second mark.
Built on a hybrid chassis that integrates carbon fiber and aluminum elements, the Lamborghini Huracán LP610-4 showcases a lightweight design. This construction has led to commendable results, particularly a power-to-weight ratio of only 2.33 kg/Hp. Such efficiency aids in attaining a combined fuel consumption rate of 12.5 liters per 100km and CO2 emissions of 290g/km. Impressively, this V10 engine still complies fully with the stringent EU6 regulations.
Interior & Exterior Design
When you see the Lamborghini Huracán LP610-4 in your rearview mirror, you will immediately know a Raging Bull is about to pass you, the now famous ‘Y’ shaped driving lights on the car are recognizable from afar, but the Huracán is also the first production supercar with full LED headlights, in fact, every light on this new Baby Lamborghini is a state-of-the-art LED unit.
And the technology continues inside the Lamborghini Huracán LP610-4 with an LCD display on the dashboard to provide all the necessary information, a 12.3-inch color TFT panel can show the rpm, navigation, audio, infotainment you name it the ‘pilot’ can even customize the display to a certain degree.
Remember the Hexagon Project, the series of videos showing a few people traveling to Sant’Agata to try and capture a glimpse of the new Lamborghini Creature car well we now know where the ‘hexagon’ name came from the interior of the Lamborghini Huracán LP610-4 shows a lot of hexagon design remember the Marzal, that was Marcello Gandini’s first Lamborghini with a lot of hexagon elements, the first series Espada had a hexagon styled dashboard pod by the way.
The dashboard inside the Huracán has hexagon air vents while the pod around the display looks loosely like that too, but take a look at that impressive central console it is almost floating, which gives a nice, airy feel about it; naturally, the red flap hides the ‘Start/Stop’ button as seen on the teaser page, while control for the hand brake is positioned between the seats, further up on the central console are controls for various settings and dials.
The newly designed steering wheel gets two large gear change levers behind it while several controls are located on the horizontal spokes, similar to the Aventador steering wheels in fact. One new feature only seen on the Huracán is that red switch at the bottom of the steering wheels the control for the ‘driving dynamics selector’ goes from STRADA over SPORT to hardcore CORSA.
Naturally, leather and Alcantara can be ordered inside the new Huracán with various shades to choose from combined with contrasting stitching to offer various individualization possibilities I’m sure we’ll be seeing some clear carbon fiber inside the production models in the end.
Power from the V10 engine inside the Huracán is put onto the road through a 7-speed LDF transmission in detail a double clutch system called Lamborghini Doppia Frizione, while the four-wheel drive system is back, fully electronically controlled in this case. Changing the driving dynamics mode not only influences the stiffness of the suspension but also the timing of the gearbox, engine response, exhaust sound, the four-wheel drive parameters, and stability control.
Carbon Ceramic brakes are standard fitment on the Lamborghini Huracán while the ‘Lamborghini Dynamic Steering’ system (a variable ratio steering system) is an option, just like an innovative magneto-rheologic damper control for the suspension sounds very interesting.
