It goes without saying that Lamborghini is regarded as one of the most prestigious auto brands in the world, so it really doesn’t have much use for commercials. If the name of the game is fostering brand awareness, Lamborghini doesn’t need that.
Yet there it was, the new Lamborghini Huracan , being filmed running around some city streets, which looks to be a commercial shoot in plain view of pedestrians. That’s awesome and all, especially since it just made its debut a little over a month ago, but the big deal is that this is the first time we actually get to see the Huracan in its natural element.
Normally, things like this go unnoticed without us even blinking an eyelash, but exceptions are certainly made for cars like the Huracan. Add to that the fact that it’s sporting an orange hue that’s similar to what we first saw with the Aventador a few years back, and we can’t help but stare and drool.
More importantly, watching the video and hearing that throaty growl of the Huracan makes us believe that we haven’t seen the best of this new Lambo yet.

Keeping with Lamborghini traditions, the Huracan is named after a famous bull from 1897. The suffix indicates, that the car that replaces the Gallardo is powered by a 610-horsepower engine and employs all-wheel drive. Seems like a good start, then.
With the Huracan adopting a family face of sorts, borrowed from Aventador, what we have here is a supercar that looks that match its character. Following its take over by Audi, the Aventador came along as the next-generation supercar, and the Huracan follows on a similar design philosophy as its elder cousin.
The mid-mounted, 5.2-liter V-10 now develops 610 horsepower at 8,250 rpm and 413 pound-feet of torque at 6,500 rpm. Coupled to a seven-speed, dual-clutch automatic, the Huracan does 0 to 60 mph in just 3.2 seconds and has a top speed of 202 mph.
