• 2015 - 2016 Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4

Replacing the popular, 10-year-old Gallardo

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 05/31/2016: About one month ago Lamborghini dropped a very cool promo video for the Huracanc called "Driven by Instinct." Now it came back with an addition video that offers us some behind the scenes footage. Hit "play" to check it out!

So, those leaked photos we saw yesterday of the Huracán turned out to be legitimate, as evidenced by a succeeding batch of even more photos showing the Huracán in all its spectacular glory.

Up front, we couldn’t help notice how certain elements from the Aventador were

"That's serving notice to Ferrari that it needs to put in the work to improve the 458 Italia"

applied to the Huracán , something we touched on with our past renderings. The Lamborghini trademark large intakes are also visibly present on the front. They look shorter than those on the Aventador but meet closer to the middle, a direction Lamborghini may have taken to make the Huracán look less bonkers than its big brother. Smart call, since you don’t want to emasculate the Aventador with a more aggressive-looking younger bro.

The Huracán does have the advantage with those LED headlamps, the same technology used on the Aventador. But instead of having just one Y-shaped headlight, as is the case with the Aventador, the Huracán has a pair of them on each side.

Looking at the side photo of the Huracán , you can immediately surmise that it’s shorter than the Aventador. A noticeable lack of those sweeping strokes kind of makes it look a little too simple for our taste, and even the air intakes behind the doors aren’t as big as the ones you’ll find on the Aventador, probably because the V-10 doesn’t need bigger intakes. And did we say that the doors open conventionally? That’s a bummer.

Moving to the rear, this is where we really love the Huracan. Understandably, the Aventador has a more garnished rear with sharp edges seemingly found all throughout the rear. The Huracan is a little more subdued than that, and it’s an awesome thing. The taillights are similar, and the diffuser still sits lower than we would’ve wanted, but the absence of those two large rear intakes, means that there’s more space for an actual bumper. Lambo did have to compromise with those rear lights, making them a tad smaller to accommodate what does look like one continuous intake that runs from one taillight to the other.

New for 2016

Two years since its official launch, the Huracan received an exterior update in the form of an aerodynamic kit. The package includes a new, more aggressive front bumper that features a larger splitter made from carbon-fiber, as well as side winglets crafted from the same lightweight material. It also adds sportier side skirts on each side, as well as large, fixed rear wing. Both elements are made from carbon-fiber. Lamborghini had nothing to say as to how this body kit improves performance, but it will likely help channel air more efficiently around the car, which could shave a tenth-second off its 0-to-60 mph sprint. The aero kit is priced at $22,484 in the U.S.

Rendering Versus Reality

In our rendering that we created on October 1st, you can see that we only strayed a little from the actual model. We got the overall shape of the Huracan perfect, but we did miss the little details that Lambo kept under heavy camo, like the front and rear fascias, the bodylines and the air intakes. Overall, though, not a bad rendering, but not perfect by any means.

There are little surprises with the interior of the Lamborghini Huracan, other than the redesigned dashboard with the A/C vents sticking out. The center console, which includes a large 12.3-inch TFT display, still has all the knobs, switches, and buttons you’ll need in just one place. The aforementioned TFT display does have all the necessary info, from the tachometer to the infotainment system.

The Huracan also has copious amounts of carbon fiber and Alcantara throughout the cabin, nothing out of the ordinary considering that we are dealing with Lamborghini here.

Drivetrain and Handling

A not-so-surprising revelation about the Huracán is the choice of engine Lamborghini

"Leaks got the better of the Italian automaker, resulting in an anticlimactic release"

opted to use for its new supercar. For its latest piece of work, Lambo opted to bring back an uprated version of the Gallardo’s 5.2-liter, V-10 engine that produces 610 horsepower at 8,250 rpm and 413 pound-feet of torque at 6,500 rpm.

That’s serving notice to Ferrari that it needs to put in the work to improve the 458 Italia, otherwise the Huracán will just blow past it. The Huracán’s increased power over the 458 also means that it can hit 62 mph in just 3.2 seconds and it takes only 9.9 seconds to go all the way from 0 to 124 mph. Top speed wasn’t fully divulged, but LAmbo did say that it will exceed 325 km/h (202 mph).

Power for the new Lambo is sent to all four wheels through a seven-speed, dual-clutch gearbox and if you’re feeling the vibe of optional driving modes, the Huracán has three modes - Strada, Sport and Corsa - you can choose from. These systems impact just about every part of the car, including the gearbox, suspension, steering, exhaust, stability control and the all-wheel-drive system.

In terms of raw numbers, the Huracan’s V-10 is also Euro 6 compliant, enabling it to have an average fuel consumption of 18.8 mpg in the U.S. (12.5 liters / 100 km).

Doing the stopping is a standard set of carbon-ceramic brakes, and variable steering ration allows the driver to whip the new Lambo through the twist with the flick of a wrist.

The Lamborghini Huracan is priced from $241,945 in the U.S., making it significantly more affordable than the Aventador, which retails from $404,195 before options. The aeodynamic kit launched in 2016 retails for $22,484. A Huracan with the updated exterior will thus cost $264,429 before options.

Ferrari 458 Italia

Even though the Huracán is a new name, it will remain in basically the same segment as its predecessor, meaning it will target the same competitors.

The 458 Italia will be its main target. This model will be powered by a 4.5-liter, V-8 engine that delivers a total of 570 horsepower at 9,000 rpm and a peak torque of 398 pound-feet at 6,000 rpm. The 458 Italia can sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.4 seconds and goes up to a top speed of 201 mph.

The Audi R8 V10 Coupe is another supercar that will be directly in the Huracán LP 610-4’s cross-hairs. Despite the 2014 model putting down 525 horsepower and 391 pound-feet of torque, the R* V10 will be significantly slower than the Huracán, as it takes 3.8 seconds to hit 60 mph and tops out at 196 mph.

Finally, it’s over! The Huracán LP 610-4 is official, and we can finally stop with all of the speculation. Then again, now we get to look forward to all of the special editions that Lambo puts out.

Overall, we are rather impressed with what Lamborghini did with its new supercar, as it is fast and likely nimbler than all of its main competitors, particularly its third cousin, the R8. We’ll have to see where Lamborghini prices it, but all is good thus far. We’re sure the Huracán LP 610-4 will enjoy the same outrageous success that the Gallardo did.

2006 Lamborghini Gallardo

The Gallardo arrived on the market in 2003 and in a very short time, it became the best-sold Lamborghini model ever. Just like with any other Lamborghini model, the Gallardo was named after a famous breed of fighting bull.

The Gallardo was offered at launch with a 5.0-liter V-10 engine that delivered a total of 520 horsepower. Lambo offered it as a coupe initially, but a spyder version arrived in 2006.

Lamborghini Gallardo "Superleggera"

Gallardo received numerous variations during the years, starting with the Superleggera launched in 2007. This edition came with a 10-horsepower increase over the standard version.

The biggest update was announced at the 2008 Geneva Motor Show when Lamborghini unveiled the Gallardo LP560-4. This version was powered by a 5.2-liter V-10 engine with an output of 560 horsepower. This version also received a spyder and a Superleggera version, which added an extra 10 horsepower to the standard LP560-4.

The LP560-4 received one final update for the 2013 model year. The "update" however was limited to only some small interior and exterior revisions, with no changes made under the hood.

Above, you can see the progression of the Gallardo successor’s development and just how far along it has come. We first caught the new supercar lapping Nürburgring under some seriously ugly camo (top, left). But in November, we caught it again, but this time in a parking lot. Fortunately, this time Lambo decided to drop the heavy black cladding and left just the swirly camo (top,right), which allowed us to get a clearer look at the front and rear of the new Lamborghini. The latest image, which was caught on 12/12/2013 (bottom, center) — just days before the Gallardo’s successor is due to show its face — but these images didn’t shine any new light on the future supercar.

Our spy shooter caught the Gallardo Successor testing in the snow in Sweden on December 18th, 2013. Other than the funky rally light setup, there is nothing different on this prototype when compared to the last ones we saw. One thing is for sure, this snow testing is a clear sign that Lambo’s use of all-wheel drive will continue into this next-gen model, as expected.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read full bio
