With styling of the new Lamborghini Huracan LP 610-4, similar to that of the Aventador, the Gallardo successor will come in as direct imports from Lamborghini’s factory in Sant’Agata, Italy, while prices are slated to commence at INR 3.43 crores. Lamborghini Huracan LP 610-4 has been on display in a brilliant shade of red at it’s Mumbai dealership since August, apart from being spotted being driven in the city.
Huracan is built on a hybrid aluminum/carbon fiber frame/chassis, which is 10% lighter and 50% stiffer than that of the Gallardo. Sheet metal is of aluminum and composite material. Huracan upholds Adaptive Network Intelligent System, ANIMA also meaning soul in Italian.
Huracan measures 4,459 mm in length, 2,236 mm in width and stands 1,165 mm tall while sitting on a wheelbase of 2,620 mm. The Huracan weighs a total of 1422kgs and sits on 20” Pirelli wheels. Powered by a 5.2 liter V10 engine offering peak power of 610 PS at 8,250 rpm and peak torque of 560 Nm at 6,500 rpm, power is transferred to all four wheels through a 7 speed LDF dual clutch automatic transmission. This powerful engine, which comes under Euro 6 norms, allows the Lamborghini Huracan LP 610-4 to accelerate from 0 to 100 kmph in 3.2 seconds and from 0 to 200 kmph in just under 10 seconds while hitting a top speed of 325 kmph. Stopping power is via a hydraulic dual circuit brake system along with vacuum brake servo unit, six piston calipers in the front and four piston calipers at the rear. Emission figures are pegged at 290 g/km CO2 while fuel consumption in combined cycle is at 12.5 liters per 100 km.
Lamborghini’s newest raging bull, which made its official, global debut at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, is set to make its mark among exotic super car buyers in India. In its segment, Lamborghini Huracan LP 610-4 chief competitors are Ferrari 458 Italia/Spider and McLaren 650S Coupe/Spider all of which are not yet launched in India and hence this faster, more agile and more useable Gallardo replacement is sure to find its own niche among buyers in the country.
