After organizing private previews of the Huracan LP 610-4 for prospective customers earlier this year, Lamborghini’s Delhi dealership now has the supercar on display hinting towards an imminent launch in the coming weeks. Replacing the legendary Gallardo in the Italian brand’s lineup, the Huracan definitely has the looks and moves to be a worthy successor to the Gallardo nameplate, courtesy of the ostentatious design and a foot pounding V10 engine which will certainly take fancy of the several exotic car lovers that have the moolah to splurge on this Italian beauty.
Certainly an evolutionary style on the lines of the bigger Aventador, the Lamborghini Huracan looks big, bad and definitely not something you would want to mess with. The character lines are sharper than ever, while the complete design language seems to take inspiration from something from another planet altogether. Lamborghini has used carbon-fibre throughout the supercar for extensive weight savings, and used a hybrid chassis that is made up of carbon-fibre and aluminium and keeps the Huracan’s total weight at just 1422 kgs, providing an excellent power to weight ratio.
Lamborghini has made sure that the interior constantly reminds you about all the power you are about to handle with a jet fighter inspired cockpit that comes with a healthy dose of features and equipment including a 12.3-inch display screen and a built-in infotainment screen providing all the vital details about the car. Keeping you comfortable are seats made out of fine Nappa Leather, while Alcantara is also available as an option with a variety of colours.
The Lamborghini Huracan is powered by a 5.2-litre V10 engine that is tuned to produce 610 BHP of power at 8250 RPM and 560 Nm of peak torque at 6500 RPM, paired to a 7-speed Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) sending power to all four wheels via the four-wheel drive setup. 0-100 km/hr takes just 3.2 seconds, while 0-200 km/hr takes a total of 9.9 seconds. The Huracán can reach a top speed of 325 km/hr. Safety features include dual front and side airbags, ABS, ESC and Driveline Traction Control that keeps its occupants safe. The supercar rides on 20-inch Pirelli tyres, while stopping power comes from carbon ceramic brakes with 6-piston callipers in the front and 4-piston callipers at the rear.
Owners get different driving modes to choose from which include STRADA, SPORT and CORSA that change the suspension, sound, engine output and gearbox response to offer the best driving experience on road and track. Reportedly, Lamborghini started accepting orders at the preview itself and should commence deliveries later this year. Expect the pricing to be around Rs. 3.43 crores (ex-showroom, Delhi) and as the company states, the Huracan will be the most user friendly Lamborghini to drive.
