A worthy replacement to the Gallardo, Lamborghini will be launching its newest bull, the Huracan LP 610-4 in India in September this year. The legendary Italian bull which attracts all the attention from aficionados and layman alike has received a positive response from India and the company is closely watching the super exotic luxury car market in the country. Interestingly, India was one of the few markets globally where Lamborghini organised special private previews of the Huracan for prospective customers.
The Lamborghini Huracan has already received 1000 bookings worldwide which also includes some influential figures from India as well. With the launch of the Huracan in the sub-continent, the Italian luxury car maker plans to expand its presence, while also increasing the overall volumes sold. The Indian market contributes 1 percent of Lamborghini’s total sales (2121 units in 2013) globally and the expansion of the brand to other parts of the country will also help increase the volumes of its supercars. Currently, the Italian company has two showrooms in the country in Mumbai and Delhi, with Delhi being their largest market.
Lamborghini is also under the process of setting shop in Bangalore in the second half of this year around October. The new showroom will cater to the southern market and will help the company extend their servicing network to its customers. It is also working to improve the high-end service back up too for its exotic speed demons. The company offers round the clock service, with technicians reaching at any destination within a day.
In terms of growth, Lamborghi has seen rise in demand in tier II and III cities as well across the country that have opened up to the idea of owning sports cars. The Lamborghini Huracan is expected to be launched with a price tag of Rs. 3.40 crore in the country (ex-showroom, Delhi), with deliveries to commence in September itself.
The Lamborghini Huracan is powered by a naturally aspirated 5.2-litre V10 engine that produces a 610 BHP of adrenaline thumping power at 8250 RPM and 510 Nm of max torque at 6500 RPM, all of which is available at the dispense of your right foot. Power is sent to all four wheels via the 7-speed dual clutch transmission. 0-100 km/hr comes up in just 3.2 seconds, while the top speed is rated at over 320 km/hr.
