Ten Things You need to Know About the Lamborghini Huracán
It’s official folks– Lamborghini has finally taken the wraps off the Huracán, its replacement for the Gallardo. This news comes as a bit of an early Christmas present, and in addition to being one epic looking Lambo, it will bring a new level of technology and performance to the Raging Bull.
While we don’t know EVERYTHING about the Huracán, here are ten things that we do know, so you can impress other car folks at holiday parties.
1. It Has Serious Power
Just because it’s the Baby Lambo (if you could call it that), doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice performance. The 5.2-liter V10 makes 610 horsepower at 8,250 rpm (that’s 40 more horsepower than the Gallardo’s V10 at its best, seen above). With a curb weight of 3,134, it has a ratio of 5.13 pounds per horsepower. A seven-speed dual clutch transmission sends power to all-wheel drive, yielding a 0-62 mph time of 3.2 seconds on its way to a top speed just over 200 mph.
2. It has big shoes to fill
The Huracán is the replacement for the Gallardo, which was the “entry-level” Lambo, slotted beneath the Murcielago then the Aventador. By the conclusion of its ten-year production run, it became the best selling Lamborghini of all time, moving 14,002 units.
3. It’s in a Serious Pack of Performance Contemporaries
The 3.2-second 0-62 mph time puts in some pretty ridiculous company. It is faster than the Chevrolet Corvette ZR-1, SRT Viper, and Ferrari 458 Spider. The list of cars that are as fast or faster than the Hurácan is a who’s who of performance royalty, including the McLaren F1, Ferrari Enzo, Nissan GT-R, Bugatti Veyron, Porsche 918 Spyder, and – of course– the “Big Brother” Lamborghini Aventador.
