The 2015 Lamborghini Huracán made its debut at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. The successor to the Lamborghini Gallardo, the two-seat coupe is known for its easy-to-drive road behavior and both luxurious and sport-oriented finish.

Exterior

Named for the 19th century fighting bull Huracán known for its invincibility, this Lamborghini revolutionizes the design language of the Gallardo with its profile defined by one line that merges the front with the cockpit and the rear of the car. The lateral windows are designed to come together for a hexagonal form in the car's profile.

All light functions, including the main headlights, feature state-of-the-art LED technology as a standard feature for the first time in the segment.

Interior

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.

The dashboard is low-slung and features hexagonal trim elements on its extremely slender fascia. The instrument display and air vents look like standalone, add-on components. A console stretches from the dashboard to the center tunnel.

Inside the Huracán, the driver and co-driver enjoy more space and better visibility than in the Lamborghini Gallardo. The low seats with their pronounced contouring and integrated backrests provide the body with excellent grip and support. In the standard version, they can be electrically adjusted for the angle of the backrest and longitudinal position. Further electrical functions for seat height, seat angle and the length of the seat cushion are available as options.

Performance

The new 5.2-liter V10 engine delivers a maximum power of 610 horsepower at 8,250 rpm and a maximum torque of 412 lb. ft. at 6.500 rpm. The V10 engine uses new direct and indirect gasoline injections for more power and torque with lower fuel consumption and emissions compared with the Gallardo V10 engine. It has a top speed of over 200 mph and acceleration from 0 to 60 in a tick less than 3.2 seconds and to 125 mph in 9.9 seconds.

The power of the V10 engine is brought to the road via the new 7-speed dualclutch transmission ''Lamborghini Doppia Frizione'' (LDF) and fully electronically controlled four-wheel drive system.

The different driving modes of the Huracán can be selected via a driving dynamics selector switch in the steering wheel - 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 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 Huracán's carbon-ceramic brakes are a standard feature for consistently superb braking performance. The ''Lamborghini Dynamic Steering'' variable steering ratio system and magneto-rheologic suspension damper control are both available as options for further customization of the Huracán's dynamic behavior. They are also calibrated via the three different dynamic set-ups.

The Huracán's hybrid chassis is a mixture of carbon and aluminum elements. With a dry weight of 3,144 lbs. it has an excellent power-to-weight ratio of just 5 lbs. per horsepower. The carbon and aluminum combined also guarantee outstanding stiffness.

There is even some fuel-saving technology applied to the Huracán. Thanks to the Stop & Start technology, the combined EU consumption figure has been further reduced to 14-mpg city and a surprising 20-mpg highway for a combined 16 mpg (290 g/km CO2 emissions). Even with the technology, the Huracán is still subject to a gas guzzler tax of $3500.
