Lamborghini Huracan

Lamborghini Huracan

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.

As the Lamborghini Gallardo retired into history books to make way for the new Huracan as the company’s entry-level supercar , so did the race-ready Gallardo Super Trofeo . Still fresh off the assembly line, the Huracan LP610-4 is getting ready to dress its brand new Super Trofeo suit for the Lamborghini Accademia program starting this year, so we created a rendering of what we think it will look like (above).

Those of you that are not familiar with the initiative, the Lamborghini Accademia is part of the Lamborghini Squadra Corse program and provides customers with intensive driving courses at the Imola race track. It essentially prepares amateur drivers for real world racing by means of two programs. Customers who want to stick to weekend track days can attend the intensive course, while those willing to take it up a notch and race at a professional or pro-am level can do so by signing up for the advanced program with a team of experience racing instructors.

Although the Huracan Super Trofeo is only available through Lamborghini’s Accademia for now, the supercar will soon take on the tracks in a series of its own, much like the Gallardo Super Trofeo did.

Updated 07/15/2014: Lamborghini unveiled the first teaser image (after the jump) for the future Huracan Super Trofeo and confirmed that the car is ready for its first testing session at the Vallelunga circuit.

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.

Launched at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year, the brand-new Lamborghini Huracan is an open book by now, with all of the details around it revealed, analyzed and put to good use in comparisons against the Ferrari 458 Italia , its most feared rival.

We’ve also seen a couple of video reviews featuring Sant’Agata Bolognese’s latest machine, but there’s one thing bothering us; we have yet to see the Huracan in the flesh. And that’s because the supercar has yet to hit the streets, with its very anxious customers having to keep their excitement in check for another few months.

But production and post-assembly testing is well underway in Lamborghini ’s home town, as revealed by YouTube’s Mikesupercars, who has spotted and taped several Huracans moving in and out of the company’s offices in Sant’Agata Bolognese. This is the very first time we get to see the Huracan on the move without being featured in a review, and we’re more than happy we are able to do so.

Making the footage even better is the fact that it shows the supercar in various colors, including red, orange, white, and black. According to the uploader, who has seen several vehicles on the assembly line, we’re about to see loads of red Huracans on the streets later this year. Red has been popular with Lamborghini customers ever since the Countach hit the market, so we’re not surprised that customers prefer this specific hue.

As a brief refresher, the Lamborghini Huracan hits the streets with 610 horsepower and 413 pound-feet of torque under its hood. All that power hails from a 5.2-liter, V-10 engine and travels through a seven-speed, dual-clutch transmission.

Somewhere in Italy, there is a very lucky State Police Officer whose new cruiser is this Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4 dressed in Polizia livery. In a ceremony held today in Rome, Lamborghini President and CEO Stephan Winkelmann handed over the Huracán’s keys to the Italian State Police.

This isn’t the first Lamborghini we’ve seen hit the beat with the Italian fuzz, but it is certainly the freshest, best looking iteration we’ve ever beheld. The new Huracán, and a second likely on its way, replaces the Gallardos used by the government since 2004 and 2008.

Though the Lambo is really going into active duty, the police will generally be using the $240,000 car to keep the peace and security on Italian roads by generating awareness for accident and crime prevention. And in a land where supercars are born, the Huracan serves as an important messenger to all those would-be crooks looking to break the law in a high-speed game of hot pursuit. With a top speed of 202 mph and a 0-to-62 time of just 3.2 seconds, there are very few cars able to outrun it.

Then again, no matter how fast the bad guys run, they can’t outrun a radio.

The Lamborghini Huracan has been turning a lot of heads since it was first introduced at the Geneva Motor Show a few months ago. If anything, the reaction to the supercar has been expected, especially when you consider the enormous shoes it has to fill as the successor to the popular Lamborghini Gallardo .

Fast forward a few months and it appears that most scribes in the industry have formed their opinions of the Italian supercar , particularly on important talking points like its looks, power, and overall handling capabilities.

This time around, we have a pair of videos coming from Auto Express and Autoguide detailing their experiences on driving the Huracan. Good or bad, there are a lot of things to say about Lambo’s newest baby, and like the professionals that they are, the two auto sites pulled no punches on their analysis of the car.

Check out the videos and see if you’ve been swayed to either buy one or to just stay away from it.
