Lamborghini Huracan in India: Spy Shots
The same week Lamborghini unveiled their new sports car Huracan at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, it has been spotted in India. Huracan is the Gallardo replacing sportscar, offering a more powerful and efficient engine, along with improved dynamics.
Spotted at the Mumbai airport, the new Huracan is in India for a private screening in select cities, before the car is officially launched later this year. The 5.2l V10 of Huracan delivers 610 PS power and 560 Nm torque to all four wheels via 7 Speed DSG gearbox. This power output, coupled with lightweight body architecture (kerb weight – 1,422 kgs), gives the Huracan an impressive power to weight ratio of 2.33 kgs/hp.
0-100 kmph is achieved in 3.2 seconds while 0-200 takes just 9.9 seconds. Top speed of Huracan is at 325 kmph. Lamborghini expects the Huracan to become their best-seller, surpassing their best selling car, Gallardo’s tally of 4,099 units. This is very possible, considering that they clocked 700 bookings for Huracan in the first month itself. This is This is huge for a brand who are yet to sell more than 2,406 cars in a calendar year.
Autocar India managed to catch the car in India. They also reveal that it is going to be priced Rs 3.43 crores, ex-showroom Delhi. In Europe, the car is priced from ÂŁ180k, where it competes with the McLaren MP4-12C and Ferrari 458 Italia.

The new Lamborghini HuracĂˇn LP 610-4: A new dimension in Luxury Super Sports Cars
– Innovative technology and absolute performance redefine the super sports car experience
– Pure and powerfully dynamic design language
– New V10 with 610 hp, acceleration from 0-100 km/h in 3.2 seconds, top speed of over 325 km/h
– From January 2014: private preview events for qualified prospects
Santâ€™Agata Bolognese, 20.12.2013 â€” A new era is beginning for Automobili Lamborghini and the luxury super sports car segment: with the brand new HuracĂˇn Lamborghini is not only presenting the successor to the iconic Gallardo, but is also redefining the benchmark for luxury super sports cars in this segment. With its pure and unique design, an innovative technology package, outstanding dynamics and excellent quality, the HuracĂˇn offers a super sports car experience on a whole new level. The HuracĂˇn combines absolute performance with easy-todrive road behavior and both luxurious and sport-oriented finish. With the HuracĂˇn, Lamborghini is taking a big step into the future, and enhancing the brandâ€™s illustrious history with the next automotive legend.
Starting from January 2014 the HuracĂˇn will be the protagonist of over 130 private preview events in more than 60 cities throughout the world. The Lamborghini HuracĂˇn will make its world public debut at the Geneva Motorshow 2014.
With a total volume of 14,022 cars produced, the Lamborghini Gallardo has been the most successful Lamborghini ever and, in its ten-year lifecycle, lifted the Lamborghini marque to a whole new level. Its successor, the new HuracĂˇn, has been developed from scratch down to the very last detail and, like the Gallardo and most other Lamborghini models, derives its name from the world of bullfighting. The fighting bull HuracĂˇn of the Spanish Conte de la Patilla breed was known for his outstanding courage and strong sense of attack. He fought in Alicante in August 1879, showing his unrelenting character and remaining defiant and invincible, thus entering into the legend of fighting bullsâ€™ history.
The new HuracĂˇn revolutionizes the design language of the Gallardo and is pure in its lines: precise technology and top level craftsmanship meet an audacious design with sharp edges, monolithic and sculptured volumes and precise surfaces. The starting point is the silhouette of the HuracĂˇn, born out of the desire of creating an automobile, whose profile is defined by only one line that merges the front with the cockpit and the rear of the car. The lateral windows come together to create a hexagonal form inserted like a glass jewel in the carâ€™s profile.
Also by night is the HuracĂˇn unmistakably a Lamborghini. Not only are the main headlamps equipped with full LED illumination, but all other light functions also feature state-of-the-art LED technology as a standard feature for the first time in the segment.
The interior is dominated by an innovative cockpit. A 12.3 inch full-color TFT instrument panel delivers all car information to the driver, from rev counter to navigation maps and infotainment functions, and can be configured by the driver in different setups. Fine Nappa leather and Alcantara distinguish the interior, with several color combinations offered to ensure broad individualization options. The design of dashboard and central tunnel underline a new lightness in the interior. Superb craftsmanship guarantees the highest quality and sense of luxury throughout.
Chassis and powertrain
Systematic lightweight design and Automobili Lamborghiniâ€™s extensive expertise in carbon fiber come together in the HuracĂˇnâ€™s new hybrid chassis â€” an integrated structure of carbon and aluminum elements. With a dry weight of 1,422 kg it enables not only the excellent power-to-weight ratio of just 2.33 kilograms per horse power, but also guarantees race-car precision with outstanding stiffness.
The new 5.2 liter V10 engine delivers a maximum power of 448 kW / 610 HP at 8,250 rpm and a maximum torque of 560 Nm at 6.500 rpm. In the new â€ťIniezione Diretta Stratificataâ€ť (IDS), direct and indirect gasoline injections are smartly combined. This results in more power and torque with lower fuel consumption and emissions compared with the Gallardo V10 engine. The top speed of over 325 km/h and the acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.2 seconds and to 200 km/h in 9.9 seconds only partially describe the dynamic experience at the wheel of the HuracĂˇn. Also thanks to the Stop & Start technology, the combined EU consumption figure has been further reduced to 12.5 liters per 100 km (290 g/km CO2 emissions). The engine complies with EU6 emissions regulation.
The power of the V10 engine is brought to the road via the new 7-speed dualclutch transmission â€ťLamborghini Doppia Frizioneâ€ť (LDF) and fully electronically controlled four-wheel drive system. The different driving modes of the HuracĂˇn can be selected via a driving dynamics selector switch in the steering wheel â€“ from traction-oriented on the road to extreme performance on the race track, with three setups of the dynamics system: STRADA, SPORT and CORSA. The different modes ensure extensive modification in road behavior of the HuracĂˇn. In particular they influence the set-ups of several systems, such as the gearbox and engine behavior, the sound, the four-wheel-drive system and electronic stability control. The HuracĂˇnâ€™s carbon-ceramic brakes are a standard feature for consistently superb braking performance. The â€ťLamborghini Dynamic Steeringâ€ť variable steering ratio system and magneto-rheologic suspension damper control are both available as options for further customization of the HuracĂˇnâ€™s dynamic behavior. They are also calibrated via the three different dynamic set-ups.
The HuracĂˇn is produced at the Automobili Lamborghini headquarters in Santâ€™Agata Bolognese on an entirely newly-equipped production line. Delivery to the first customers is planned for spring 2014.
