New Lamborghini Huracán set to premiere at 2014 Geneva Motor Show

 allcarschannel Following the recent cease of production of the Lamborghini Gallardo, Automobili Lamborghini has quickly affirmed its replacement in the form of the Huracán. A private preview of the new Super Sports has been set for January at 60 countries around the globe. The Super Sports, meanwhile, will premiere proper at the 2014 Geneva Motor show from 6 – 16 March.

The Lamborghini Huracán packs a unique design, an innovative technology package and outstanding driving dynamics into one desirable Super Sports car; a worthy successor to the Gallardo. Additionally, the Huracán combines absolute performance with easy-to-drive road behavior and both luxurious and sport-oriented finish.

Lamborghini Huracán, a worthy successor to the Gallardo

A noteworthy mention of the Huracán’s predecessor, the Gallardo; the former best-selling Lamborghini commanded a production volume of 14,022 units after its decade life cycle. Its successor, the new Huracán, has been developed from scratch down to the very last detail and, like the Gallardo and most other Lamborghini variants, derives its name from the world of bullfighting. The fighting bull Huracán of the Spanish Conte de la Patilla breed was known for his outstanding courage and strong sense of attack.

Design-wise, the new Huracán revolutionizes the design language of the Gallardo and is pure in its lines: precise technology and top level craftsmanship meet an audacious design with sharp edges, monolithic and sculptured volumes and precise surfaces. The starting point is the silhouette of the Huracán, born out of the desire of creating an automobile, whose profile is defined by only one line that merges the front with the cockpit and the rear of the car. The lateral windows come together to create a hexagonal form inserted like a glass jewel in the car’s profile.

The Huracán headlights is equipped with full LED illumination, while all other light functions also get LEDs; a first in the segment.

The interior is dominated by an innovative cockpit, featuring a 12.3-inch TFT instrument panel, a contemporary dashboard and central tunnel, and Nappa leather and Alcantara overall schemes (with individualization options).

Huracán continues to utilize a V10 powerplant

Powered by a 5.2-liter V10 powerplant that’s mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission LDF (Lamborghini Doppla Frizione), the Huracán delivers an output of 610 HP (448 kW) at 8,250 rpm and a maximum torque of 560 Nm at 6.500 rpm. Automobili claims the new Super Sports has more power and torque, but lower consumption and emissions, compared to the Gallardo. Thanks to the start & stop technology, the Super Sports takes up 12.5 liters per 100 km (combined cycle) and emits 290 g/km. At the same time, the new Lambo. runner tallies a 0 – 100 km/h sprint in 3.2 seconds and a top speed of 325 km/h.

Systematic lightweight design and Automobili Lamborghini’s extensive expertise in carbon fiber come together in the Huracán’s new hybrid chassis – an integrated structure of carbon and aluminum elements. With a dry weight of 1,422 kg it enables not only the exemplary power-to-weight ratio of just 2.33 kgs per hp, but also guarantees race-car precision with outstanding stiffness.

The different driving modes of the Huracán can be selected via a driving dynamics selector switch in the steering wheel – from traction-oriented on the road to extreme performance on the race track, with three setups of the dynamics system: STRADA, SPORT and CORSA. In addition, the Huracán’s carbon-ceramic brakes are a standard feature for consistently superb braking performance. Options available include the “Lamborghini Dynamic Steering” variable steering ratio system and magneto-rheologic suspension damper control. Both options can be calibrated via the three different dynamic set-ups.
