Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4
We've known the Lamborghini Gallardo's 10-year run was coming to an end. Today, its replacement has been officially unveiled.
The Huracán's appearance is unmistakably "Lambo," bridging the stylistic gap between the Gallardo's wedge-shaped proportions and the Aventador's simplistic, angular design.
Mounted amidships is a new 610-horsepower, V-10 engine that sends power to all four wheels via an electronically-controlled all-wheel-drive system.
No more manual shifting
The Huracán debuts with only one gearbox available: a 7-speed, dual-clutch automatic.
The cabin features an Aventador-inspired design and is upholstered in Alcantara and fine Nappa leather. Drivers will control the transmission with paddle shifters and access three driving modes via a steering wheel-mounted switch.
From Strada to Corsa
From softest to sharpest, the Strada, Sport, and Corsa modes adjust the engine and gearbox, the exhaust note, the all-wheel drive system, and the traction control systems' performance.
Variable-ratio power steering and a magnetic adaptive suspension are available as options and will adjust their characteristics in tandem with the three drive modes.
All of the Huracán's lighting, from the headlamps to the cabin lights to the tails, is powered by LED technology.
See you in Geneva
The Lamborghini Huracán will make its public debut at the 2014 Geneva auto show in the spring. There, we should learn what price and model year will be printed on its window sticker.
