Lamborghini Huracan

Lamborghini Huracan

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.

The Lamborghini Huracan is pretty fast. Actually, it’s 204-mph fast. It’s the kind of speed that few cars in this world can only dream of attaining. And yet, the Huracan makes it look so easy. That’s when you know that the Italian supercar is another feather in the cap of Lamborghini.

In this video, we get to see exactly why the Huracan is being praised to high heavens. Visual and audio evidences are there to showcase just how fast and powerful this new Lamborghini is. See all the cars it leaves behind without even breaking sweat? That’s 610 of horsepower swag, right there.

And the sound, oh my the sound. Turn up the volume for a few seconds and close your eyes. The only thing you’ll hear is the sound of the Huracan’s 5.2-liter, V-10 engine clearing its throat and belting out a raging mix of power and pace.

The only problem we have is the fact that this asshat chose a public road to perform this feat. Look, if you can afford a Huracan, chances are an hour of track time is not outside of your budget. Please don’t attempt to drive at these speeds on public roads, folks, it’s a disaster just waiting to happen.

For almost every racing game, there is a great hero car. For the classic Need for Speed: Most Wanted it was the BMW M3 GTR, for Gran Turismo 1 & 2 it was the Nissan GT-R , and now for the upcoming Forza Horizon 2 it will be the all-new Lamborghini Huracan.

Lamborghini ’s newest car replaces the Gallardo , the best-selling car Lamborghini has ever created, and it features an uprated version of the V-10 found in its predecessor. The exact car that players will be chasing after in the new Forza Horizon game is the Huracan LP 610-4 and it will be wearing a shade dubbed Midas Yellow.

If the new Forza Horizon follows the same series of events as the first Horizon game, players will start the game in a low-level car and be tasked with racing your way into ever faster cars by beating rivals and challenges. Your final rival will be driving the new Huracan.

In another milestone occasion for Turn 10 Studios, this will be the first time a digital version of the Huracan is available to drive in any game. Look for Forza Horizon 2 to hit the Xbox One and Xbox 360 consoles later this fall.

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 06/23/2014: Lamborghini unveiled a new video revealing the technical details behind the new Huracan supercar. It is by far one of the coolest technical videos I’ve seen in some time.

With the venerable Lamborghini Gallardo now out of the way, the brand-new Huracan LP610-4 has all the credentials to run the company’s entry-level supercar office and build on the legacy of its predecessor. Sure, replacing an omnipotent car like the Gallardo is not an easy task, but with 610 horsepower under the hood and performance figures that would make any Ferrari tremble, the Huracan is a machine no sports car manufacturer should ignore.

What’s more, this Italian bull is likely to receive numerous upgrades throughout its life and we wouldn’t be surprised to see a more powerful version roll out of Sant’Agata Bolognese as soon as 2016. Meanwhile, customers that aren’t satisfied with the 610 ponies and 413 pound-feet of torque available in the stock vehicle can have their Huracans enhanced by Wheelsandmore, a small venture known for adding more oomph to a variety of Ferrari, Maserati and McLaren sports cars.

Naturally, the Germans didn’t take too long to figure out how to increase the Huracan’s power even further and their all-new package is already up for grabs. As with most Wheelsandmore creations, the Huracan was also subjected to a wheel swap. Coming to replace the standard rollers are a set of race-inspired FIWE rims that feature a twin six-spoke design with central locking hubs. Measuring 20 inches at the front and 21 inches to the rear, the wheels are fully customizable and buyers can have the outer rim, the center and the small connecting screws finished in just about any color.
