Lamborghini Huracan

The Lamborghini Huracan is making some serious waves in the auto industry. As the successor to the iconic Gallardo , the Huracan has been as good as advertised, so much so that the new Lamborghini Huracan Driving Simulator is a must-try for anybody looking to see what all the fuss is with Lambo’s new baby.

Give yourself some time to take a few laps in this simulator, and you’ll immediately understand why people are going gaga over the Huracan. if anything, you’ll probably have a better go at it around the race track than the guy who posted this video. It does take a little getting used to because the controls are a little jumpy, but it is cool nonetheless.

Clearly, taming the Huracan around the race track isn’t your forte. To be fair, very few people in the world can keep the reigns on this raging bull and its 610-horsepower engine.

Go check out the simulator as soon as you can. Something tells us those with deep enough pockets will probably run to the nearest Lamborghini dealership to put in an order for the Huracan.

Lamborghini has no plans to enter the hybrid supercar market, which means that dreams of a Lambo taking on the Porsche 918 Spyder , McLaren P1 and Ferrari LaFerrari can now be put to rest. Lamborghini president and CEO Stefan Winkelmann put the kabosh on ice, saying that there’s no way a supercar market can sustain building hybrid exotics and expect them to be produced as normal production cars. It’s a niche market for the time being, and the obscene price tags attached to these models is not, in Winkelmann’s words, "fulfillable at the time being".

“What you see now — and I don’t want to be, let’s say, finger pointing — but what you see now in the world of the hybrids is not something which is going to be in normal production cars; due to cost, or due to weight if the cost is a normal one,” Winkelmann told CarAdvice.

Feasibility is a big thing for Lamborghini and the idea of building a hybrid supercar just isn’t one, especially when it’s in the business of selling as many of its already awesome naturally aspirated exotics like the Aventador and the recently-launched Huracan .

Tacking a million-dollar price tag on a hybrid supercar isn’t a market that’s sustainable even if P1 and the LaFerrari sales go through the roof. In some ways, the car’s exclusivity is what’s making these sales figures rise up. But if Ferrari or McLaren decide to offer the LaFerrari and the P1 as normal production cars, it’s going to be difficult for them to maintain a significant market of customers willing to pay that kind of premium.

That kind of thinking is more than enough reason for Lamborghini to do away with thoughts of joining the party. If the costs go down and interest is still there, then Lambo could probably change its mind, but for now, it’s not a road Winkelmann is comfortable leading Lamborghini to.

All good things must come to an end, so the Gallardo is packing things up and moving out of Lamborghini’s entry-level supercar spot to make room for a brand new baby. Rumors swirled about the name of this new supercar, and the final decision was Huracán LP 610-4 and not "Cabrera," as we initially thought.

The Huracán LP 610-4’s name is derived from a fighting bull from 1879. This Spanish Conte de la Patilla breed of bull was unrelenting and thrust himself into bull-fighting stardom courage and strong sense of attack.

This new new Lamborghini will make its public debut at the Geneva Motor Show in 2014, but it will also have more than 130 private showings that start in January. We expect to see it in dealers starting in mid- to late-2014.

Updated 03/06/2014: After the first promo video unveiled a few days ago, Lamborghini now released a full video for the new Huracan supercar. Enjoy!

Updated 03/12/2014: Lamborghini unveiled a new video in which Filippo Perini, Head of Design at Automobili Lamborghini, explains the design concept behind the new Huracan supercar.

The wait is finally over for Lamborghini fans yearning for a closer look at the upcoming 2015 Huracán as the Italian automaker goes live with the supercar ’s online configurator.

The interactive site guides users through the steps of customizing their own Huracán with exterior and interior color choices, interior material choices, wheel design and even brake caliper color. The Huracán lives up to the hype about its refinement over the Gallardo it replaces by offering several swanky color combinations both inside and out. Dark browns, deep reds, and cream-colored leathers with dark Alcantara inserts are all part of color palette with no fewer than 28 options.

Exterior colors are no less plentiful with 18 shades to choose from. Rest assured, the loud colors infamous on Lambos are still available such as lime green, retina-burning yellow, and fire truck red – though the color names are distinctly more Italian on the website.

Two unique 20-inch wheels can be had and the massive brake calipers have five color options. Two different engine covers are available: the all-glass option perfect for showing off that beautiful 5.2-liter V-10, or the more traditional black louvered cover.

The Huracán is set to officially debut at the Geneva Motor Show going on March 4th and 5th. Production won’t start until this spring, but Lamborghini says it’s already booked over 700 orders for the all-new supercar. The Huracán’s price is expected to increase over the Gallardo. Estimates average around $275,000 for the starting price. Sales will begin during the summer with the official pricing announced closer to time. Lamborghini will assuredly announce more information about the car during the Geneva festivities, so stay tuned for the additional details.

Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4

The Gallardo is the reigning best-selling Lambo , and it looks like its successor is off to a good start in unseating it.

Today, Lamborghini announced that the Huracan already has 700 orders on the books, despite the Italian company not officially announcing its release date yet. Of course, I’m sure that Lamborghini let the future Huracan owners know the approximate date during its ongoing VIP preview tour, but it is still impressive that this many people are comfortable enough in the supercar to lump down a nice down payment.

Then again, a car hailing from Lamborghini rarely sees showrooms before orders start rolling in. Add in the 5.2-liter V-10 that smolders rubber by way of 610 horsepower and 413 pound-feet of torque, and I can see why people are clamoring to get their hands on it. This powerhouse of an engine is enough to get the Huracan to 60 mph in just 3.2 seconds and up to a top speed in excess of 202 mph.

Okay, okay, maybe it’s not that big of a surprise to see it become a hot seller before its official release.

Let me know in the comments section if you think the Huracan will unseat the Gallardo as the best-selling Lambo ever.

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.

Until recently, the best place to spot supercars was the principality of Monte Carlo on the southern coast of France. Dubai has, in recent years, seen a huge inflow of high-performance sports cars and exclusive hypercars.

So much so that even the local police now roam in their very own high-power crowd pullers. The Dubai police department recently acquired a McLaren MP4-12C , adding to their fleet of Mustangs , Corvettes , Mercedes , Veyrons and Lamborghinis . Just imagine cruising through your local streets and suddenly seeing a Lambo with red and blues flashing behind you — now that’s some scary stuff.

The official video confirming the McLaren MP4-12C being added to the Dubai PD’s fleet is nothing short of glamorous. We still doubt that the Dubai police force will actually use these cars, the MP4 included, for anything besides gratuitous publicity.

Can you believe that in just one week since its online debut, the new Lamborghini Huracan already received two upgrade kits? The first one was announced by DMC Tuning , while the second one comes from Oakley Design. Of course they are both virtual, but both are showing the amazing tuning capacities of the new Huracan supercar.

According to Oakley Design this is just an initial design they are offering for the Huracan, but it will be tweaked, so most likely the final car will look a little different than this.

The tuner brags it placed orders for two Lamborghini Huracan supercars, so the new tuning kit will most likely be applied to these two cars. However, until we’ll have the chance to see the final tuning kit, Oakley needs to go and see the new Huracan during a private unveiling on January 15, 2014.

Now that we’ve already seen the first official images of the new Lamborghini Huracan , one thing will happen for sure: there will also be a Roadster version. Of course that its official debut is still years away, but imagining how it will look like wasn’t hard at all, so today we prepared a first set of renderings for you.

As you probably expect it, the future Huracan Roadster will look pretty much identical to the coupe version, except of course its roof that we expect to be identical to what we have seen in the Aventador Roadster . This means that the Huracan Roadster will get a two-piece roof made entirely from carbon fiber that can be stored in the luggage compartment. Unlike the coupe version, the Huracan Roadster will also get a redesigned rear pillar for a better support of the new, removable roof.

Everything else will be kept identical to the coupe version, including the engine found under the hood: a 5.2-liter V-10 engine that produces 610 horsepower at 8,250 rpm and 413 pound-feet of torque at 6,500 rpm.

Expect the new Huracan Roadster to be unveiled almost one year after the coupe version arrives on the market, so, most likely U.S. customers will be able to drive it sometime during the 2016 model year.

Not so long ago, Lamborghini revealed its Gallardo replacement in the form of the Huracan LP610-4 . The new supercar from Lamborghini looks strikingly similar to the larger and more powerful Aventador. But, the Aventador LP700-4 is a thing of beauty and hence we have no problems with the Huracan sharing a family face.

Within days of its unveiling, the internet was flooded with artist renderings of the Huracan in various configurations including a Spyder version. What we have here is Evren Milanos idea of the Lamborghini Huracan Superleggera. The artists even goes on to predict the engine specifications adding the suffix "LP640-4".

These renderings seem very close to the real thing. I personally like the one in yellow. Anyways, the artist has added a large rear spoiler and full body kit to the Huracan. Wheels are of a different variety. The front bumper gets a more pronounced splitter element while at the rear is diffuser for added downforce. We also like the idea of a roof scoop.

Although, Lamborghini is yet to release details about the lightweight Superleggera version, Evren Milano’s design gives us an idea of how attractive and exciting it can be. That said, the Superleggera will be lighter and more powerful than the standard Huracan. Hence, the predicted 640 horsepower seems realistic.
