The Lamborghini Huracan LP 610-4 has made its motor show debut at Geneva 2014.
Successor to the highly-successful Gallardo (14,022 units made in a 10-year production run), the new car also takes its name from the world of bullfighting: Huracan was a Spanish Conte de la Patilla fighting bull who fought in 1879 in Alicante.
The animal’s unyielding character made him invincible, the story goes. The newly conceived hybrid chassis of the Huracan LP 610-4 unites carbon fibre and aluminum components. The ultralight chassis forms the basis for the vehicle’s low dry weight of 1,422 kg. The new 5.2 litre V10 engine produces 610 hp at 8,250 rpm and max torque of 560 Nm at 6,500 rpm.
The new “Iniezione Diretta Stratificata” combines direct and indirect injection, achieving an increase in power and torque compared with the Gallardo, plus a decrease in fuel consumption and emissions.
