Lamborghini has launched the Huracan in India at Rs 3.43 crore ex-Delhi. The Huracan replaces the Gallardo worldwide and will do the same in India as well.
The Huracan gets an arrow-shaped front end with fat angular Y-contoured headlamps fitted with LEDs. Then there is the big air intake with fins painted in body colour. Lamborghini has given the Huracan 20-inch wheels and dual-circuit hydraulic brakes with four-piston calipers at the rear and six in the front. The tail lamps are also LED units. The Huracan is built on a carbon fibre/ aluminium hybrid chassis and measures 4,459 x 2236 x 1165mm (LxWxH). It weighs in at 1,422kg.
Powering the Huracan is a 610PS and 560Nm 5.2-litre V10 engine. Mated to this engine is a seven-speed dual clutch fast shifting transmission and all-wheel drive system. Lambo claims that the Huracan can do 0-100kmph in just 3.2 seconds while the 0-200 dash comes up in a blinding 9.9 seconds. The Huracan will hit a top speed in excess of 325kmph. The fuel efficiency (8kmpl) as against the Gallardo is claimed to have improved by 11 per cent thanks to the use of start/stop system.

The Huracán combines absolute performance with easy-to drive road behavior and both luxurious and sport-oriented finish. With the Huracán, Lamborghini is taking a big step into the future, and enhancing the brand’s illustrious history with the next automotive legend.
On 22nd of September 2014, the Lamborghini Huracán makes its official debut in India.
The ceremony was held in the presence of Sebastien Henry, Head of South East Asia of Automobili Lamborghini, who unveiled and presented the Huracán for the first time to Mumbai. The official world debut took place during the 2014 Geneva Motor Show in March.
“Today we are very proud to officially launch the new Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4 here in India. Automobili Lamborghini continues to set new benchmarks in the luxury super sports car industry with its pure and cutting edge technology and, we expect the Huracán to be well received in this country,” said Mr Sebastien Henry.

Lamborghini Huracán LP610-4
Marking a new chapter in its great history, Automobili Lamborghini takes a major step into the future with the newly developed Huracán LP 610-4. With its pure and absolute design, breathtaking dynamics and excellent quality, the Huracán delivers an unparalleled sports car experience. It unites mighty performance with a character perfectly suited to everyday use; its wide-ranging new technologies work together in a fully integrated fashion.
With 14,022 units produced, the Gallardo is the most successful Lamborghini model ever made. During its ten-year production run, it took the brand into a completely new dimension. In true Lamborghini tradition, the successor to the Gallardo also takes its name from the world of bullfighting: Huracán was a fighting bull of the Spanish Conte de la Patilla breed who fought in August 1879 in Alicante. His unyielding character made him invincible.
With the Huracán LP 610-4, Lamborghini is taking its purist, unmistakable design language to a whole new evolutionary level. The design is bold and edgy, with beautifully sculptural forms. The starting point of the design process was the Huracán’s silhouette. The objective was to define the car with a single line stretching from the front end over the passenger cell to the rear. The side windows take on a hexagonal form that looks like a gem set into the profile of the Huracán. At night, too, it is utterly unmistakable: All lights, including the main headlamps, beam in LED technology – an absolute first in the super sports car segment.
An innovative cockpit dominates the interior. The 12.3-inch TFT display can be configured in a number of different modes and provides the driver with all key information in a virtual format. The slender lines of the instrument mounts and the center tunnel are indicative of the lightness of the interior design. Fine materials distinguish the interior, which can be extensively individualized, while the extremely detailed craftsmanship delivers a highly refined sense of quality.
The newly conceived hybrid chassis of the Huracán LP 610-4 is a technical work of art that unites carbon-fiber and aluminum components. The ultra- light chassis forms the basis for the vehicle’s low dry weight of 1,422 kilograms; with its excellent stiffness, it guarantees the handling precision of a racing car.
The new V10 engine in the Huracán generates its phenomenal propulsion from a displacement of 5.2 liters. It produces a power output of 448 kW / 610 hp at 8,250 rpm and a maximum 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 and a decrease in fuel consumption and emissions.
With its power-to-weight ratio of just 2.33 kilograms per hp, the Lamborghini Huracán achieves absolutely breathtaking performance. The top speed of more than 325 km/h and the acceleration figures – zero to 100 km/h in 3.2 seconds, zero to 200 km/h in 9.9 seconds – offer an indication of its dynamics. Thanks in part to the Stop & Start technology, ECE average fuel consumption has dropped to 12.5 liters per 100 km (290 g CO2 per km).
The power generated by the ten-cylinder is delivered to the road via the new 7-speed dual-clutch transmission “Lamborghini Doppia Frizione” (LDF) and an all-wheel drive that also features a new hydraulic multi-plate clutch. Three different driving modes, spanning from road to race track, can be selected using a drive select switch in the steering wheel. The system is called ANIMA (Italian for Soul) – “Adaptive Network Intelligent Management”, and impacts the engine, the transmission, the all-wheel drive and the ESC handling system as well as other dynamic systems.
The wheels of the Lamborghini Huracán measure 20 inches in diameter, with the standard-fit carbon-ceramic brake system delivering exceptional stopping power. As an option, Lamborghini offers its new luxury super sports car with the Lamborghini Dynamic Steering variable steering system and MagneRide electromagnetic damper control. Both of these features are also integrated into ANIMA.
