Lamborghini Huracan

Lamborghini Huracan

Imagine if you could combine some Top Gear-style challenges with an epic supercar road trip like the Gumball 3000 , and then you sprinkled it all with a little bit of Forza magic and a dash of Tanner Foust. This event is the Forza Fuel Challenge, and it is here to celebrate the coming launch of the new Forza Horizon 2 video game on September 30th.

The teams consist of a pair of journalists and famous YouTube content creators. There is one of each piled into eight supercars that include the likes of the Audi R8, and the Lamborghini Aventador , and the new Lamborghini Huracán leads the whole convoy. As you may know the Huracán is the new halo car for the Forza Horizon 2 game, and it represents the first time you can drive this new supercar in any video game .

The teams are currently bombing around southern Europe, and when they reach designated points on the route, they get to compete in several challenges. Whoever wins the most challenges in the end will win. The first round happened two days ago at Bologna, Spain and the challenge was called “Get To The Choppa.” The teams raced against a helicopter through a slalom course on an airfield.

You can watch the video after the break to see what this whole mess is about and watch the first challenge unfold. The second challenge happened yesterday, so we should have more videos of this exciting road trip soon.

Hit that jump, watch that video, and don’t forget to keep it locked here on TopSpeed.com to see the other videos in the series, as well as more Forza Horizon 2 news including a full review that is coming soon.

The time is fast approaching, and I can’t wait. Forza Horizon 2 hits store shelves in just a few weeks, and now we have the official launch trailer as well as news on the arrival of a demo version you can play early. First, just take a look at this trailer. All of the footage in this is straight gameplay from the Xbox One version of the game and it looks stunning. The cars, modifications and scenery are all top notch.

September 30th cannot come soon enough.

Thankfully we don’t have to wait for the release date to bomb around the great European countryside as there will a demo released on September 16th on the Xbox One. I think I *cough* may be sick *cough* next week. According to some reps, the demo will be a timed affair with a few select cars from the game just like the demo for the original Forza Horizon was.

If you are an Xbox 360 player, yes the game is coming to you too, but we have no word on a demo for your system. I am sorry.

When you do pick up the new game, Turn 10 and Playground games have announced that there will be a special reward system that will grant you some fancy cars to start the game with if you are a returning fan. If you have played any Forza game before you are likely familiar with the Forza Rewards system. Essentially, Turn 10 keeps track of how much you play and you gain points based on time played, miles driven, cars owned and more. If you have enough points when you fire up Forza Horizon 2 for the first time you will get a selection of cars that range from the BMW 1 Series M to the Huracán and the McLaren P1 . You can find a full list of cars, their unlock tier and a link to the Forza site to check your standings after the break.

So to recap; we have a great new trailer to watch, a demo coming out in just a few days, and a way to unlock a small collection of awesome cars before the game even launches. Can I get a “hell yes?”

It’s no secret we’re fans of the Lamborghini Huracán here at TopSpeed. It’s hard not to be with its screaming, 5.2-liter V-10 kicking out 610 horsepower at 8,250 rpm and 413 pound-feet of torque at 6,500 rpm. A seven-speed dual clutch transmission does the shifting in split seconds and a permanent all-wheel-drive system puts all that power to the pavement. It only takes the Huracán 3.2 seconds to hit 62 mph. Give it 10 seconds and it’s blazing at 125 mph.

So when this video popped up online of the 2015 Huracán going for a top-speed run, we had to pause and watch. Pop some popcorn, folks, this video is good.

The Lambo’s straight-line performance is also on full display here, as evidenced by the beautiful digital gauge cluster. After adding about 4,500 revs to the V-10, the brake is released and the Huracán just shoots forward, hitting 60 mph just past second gear, the engine continues to scream as the speedometer climbs like a millisecond stopwatch. Things get a little concerning when a temperature warning light comes on for the all-wheel-drive system, however. We don’t know how many runs the car had done before this one, so perhaps the driver simply didn’t allow for a proper cool-down period.

Despite the warning light, the driver pushes on to reach a tremendously fast 211 mph, hitting that speed in only 40 seconds. Amazing Besides the nerve racking warning light, the video is a thrilling example of what Lamborghini’s newest supercar is capable of. And if you’re keeping score at home, Lamborghini lists the Huracan’s top speed at greater than 202 mph. We guess Lambo listed it this way to avoid encroaching on the Aventador’s 217-mph top speed.

You can file this in the "saw that coming" file, but Lamborghini is going to be making multiple versions of its new Huracán over the next few years, including a rear-wheel-drive model. This news comes courtesy of Autocar, who managed to get a few words with Lamborghini boss Stephan Winkelmann after the reveal of the new Huracán Super Trofeo at Pebble Beach last week. The key phrase Winkelmann uttered was “why should we not do a rear-drive option?”

There was a limited run of RWD Gallardos that started with the special LP550-2 Balboni Edition . After the Balboni came another limited run Bicolore special edition , and finally Lamborghini just began offering a base level RWD car. It makes sense that the Huracán will follow this same tradition, but Autocar expects the RWD model to be a special, high-end creation that will carry a higher price and more limited production numbers.

Before the RWD model arrives, expect a convertible Spyder version to arrive next year, with a higher performance variant a year or two after that. There will inevitably be lightweight versions as well, and this may be where the RWD comes into play. Cutting the AWD system from under the Huracán is likely to save 100 pounds or more.

The Lamborghini Gallardo was a powerful milestone for the Italian company. It set new records for sales and production while simultaneously propelling the brand into a more mainstream audience. The Gallardo also marked Lamborghini’s return to one-make racing with the Super Trofeo series. Now that the record setting Gallardo has been replaced with the new Huracan, there is a large gap in the Lamborghini lineup.

Initial sales are strong, and it looks like the Huracan will quickly claim the top sales spot from its older sibling, and now Lamborghini has officially announced a Super Trofeo version of the new supercar to fill the race car slot as well.

Gentlemen racers, grab your helmets.

We knew it was coming, but now it is official, and we have all the details and information waiting for you after the break. With more power, a lighter weight and major drivetrain alterations, the new cars are promising to be much faster than the previous racing Gallardos could have ever hoped to be. You can find out all the new details about the engines, chassis aerodynamics and more after the break.

With the Huracan having already replaced the Gallardo as Lamborghini’s entry-level supercar , it was only a matter of time before the Italians rolled out a Super Trofeo version of the 610-horsepower machine. Announced in July 2014, the Huracan LP610-4 Super Trofeo is finally here to showcase its racing suit thanks to supercar spotter Jeroen.

He stumbled upon the track-prepped Lambo while the Italians were busy with the official photo shoot. It seems we won’t have to wait for the pictures to be released, as the video above provides us with a comprehensive walkaround, and, more importantly, it gives us a taste of the vehicle’s piercing engine note.

The footage also comes to confirm the numerous aerodynamic updates the Huracan has gained in order to become a full-time race car . Notice the huge front splitter and side skirts, the sexy rear diffuser and the huge fixed wing. Modifications don’t stop here though. A bevy of winglets adorn both the front and rear fascias, while the regular engine and trunk bonnets have been replaced with race-spec units.

The louvered front fenders allow better engine cooling and optimize airflow over and around the car. Rounding off the Super Trofeo package is a simple, yet enticing livery. The grey-painted body features silver and white markings, while the carbon-fiber aerodynamic parts are highlighted by bright-orange accents.

No doubt the Huracan Super Trofeo is one mean-looking machine, but wait until you hear that 5.2-liter V-10 engine roar.

Damn you, Shmee150, and your supercar-video awesomeness. That’s right, YouTube star Shmee150 is at it again, and this time around he’s taking a look at the all-new Lamborghini Huracan . The Huracan is the car that every automotive journalist is in line to drive — yours truly included — and a demo car just rolled into a dealer near Shmee. So, he packed up his trusty fleet of cameras and headed out to the dealer for a little seat time.

Many of Shmee’s videos are short and sweet, and don’t dive insanely deep into him actually testing the vehicle, but not this one. Nope, the petrolhead went all out and took the Huracan for a proper drive through the English countryside.

The Huracan seems like it’s right at home both cruising at lower speeds and in full-manual mode with the ANIMA switch pointing at "Corsa," ripping through the rev band. The exhaust note is prominent in all modes, but it gets particularly vocal when he puts it into Corsa mode and the gear shifts sound neck-breaking at high revs. Yup, it’s a true Lamborghini .

Nice work, Schmee, nice work indeed.

Ever wish you could flog a brand-new Lamborghini Huracán around Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca under the direction of Lamborghini’s own Squadra Corse professional driving team? Sure you have. Well, now Lamborghini is offering the first-ever chance this coming September. This marks Lamborghini Accademia’s first time offering the program inside the U.S., and it comes at a perfect time too. The Accademia is bringing a fleet of brand-new Huracáns to the event, which runs from September 14 through 17. Students will start out with the essentials such as braking, accelerating, slalom, drifting, and section training.

Leading the one-day course are the team members of Lamborghini’s Squadra Corse, part of Lambo’s in-house research and development department dedicated to motorsports. The department’s focus includes GT3, the Super Trofeo series, and customer driving courses such as this one.

Once students learn the fundamentals of handling a 602-horsepower car, they get to run the entire Leguna Seca track with one-on-one guidance and video coaching. When the course is completed, each driver is awarded a swanky certificate of completion from Lamborghini. Also included are some fine dining opportunities during the day’s events.

Thankfully, you don’t have to be a current Lamborghini owner to participate. In this case, money talks well enough. The one-day driving school costs $4,995 for a single driver. Your significant other can tag along and enjoy the food and festivities for an extra $795. Other packages are available for those looking to book a hotel through Lamborghini.

While the price tag might seem steep, think of it as cheap insurance for both your car and your life. There is no substitute for good driving.

You know what’s more impressive than hearing the acceleration of the Lamborghini Huracan ? Hearing two of them. But you know what’s better than hearing two Huracans accelerating? Hearing 13 of them. Yep. 13 Lamborghini Huracan supercars taking turns stretching their legs in Lamborghini’s Sant’Agata Bolognese headquarters. This video comes courtesy of YouTube user “NM2255,” who looks to have spent a great deal of time camping outside Lambo’s Italian base just to see the Huracans in action.

Not only was he lucky enough to see one Huracan, he saw 13 of them in different colors. Some of the models came with wraps on the front end, which made us wonder if Lamborghini’s already preparing a different version of the Huracan or if these were simply for protection? We don’t know that at this point, but what we do know is that the Huracan is looking more and more like a worthy successor to the Lamborghini Gallardo .

It already has the look and spirit of a true Raging Bull and it’s got a 5.2-liter, V-10 engine that produces an impressive 602 horsepower and 412 pound-feet of torque.

Just by watching NM2255’s video, you can immediately tell that the Huracan is everything it’s been hyped up to be, and then some. It’s no longer an exaggeration to believe that Lamborghini’s new baby is poised to take the popularity of the Gallardo and bring it to a new level.

DMC has this way of building up its supercar programs. It teases you with renderings, drops a few hints along the way, and when you least expect it, leaks even more details about it. The company’s first program for the Lamborghini Huracan , called the "Affari," fits into the company’s proverbial slow play.

We first saw renderings of the Affari program back in December 2013. Since then, it’s been kept largely in the shadows and it wasn’t until July 10, 2014 that DMC finally gave us more details of its first aftermarket foray of the new Lamborghini.

DMC’s reputation as a premier Lamborghini tuner was once again in full effect with its Affari program for the Huracan. The German tuner wasted little time bringing a new level of customization to the supercar , giving it a significant aerodynamic upgrade that’s perfectly suited for the Huracan’s new-world aggressiveness.

For now, details only revolve around the handful of aerodynamic components that were slapped on the Huracan. DMC still has plans to develop a performance upgrade for the Affari program, but those are being kept on ice for the time being.

Since this is DMC we’re talking about, we have a certain level of expectation on what this engine tune will deliver. The tuner has given us every reason to hope for the best, so we’re not sweating on the possibilities of the Affari program being all its hyped up to be.
