Bull Throttle: Meet the Muscular Combatant from Lamborghini HQ
Fighting bull Huracán of the Spanish Conte de la Patilla breed was known for his courage and strong sense of attack. He fought in Alicante in August 1879: unrelenting, defiant and invincible, he entered into the legend of fighting bulls’ history.
Successor to the iconic Gallardo, the Lamborghini Huracán is the new V10 with 610 hp, acceleration from 0-100 km/h in 3.2 seconds, and a top speed of over 325 km/h.
Precise technology and top-level craftsmanship meet an audacious design with sharp edges, monolithic and sculptured volumes and precise surfaces. The lateral windows come together to create a hexagonal form inserted like a glass jewel in the car’s profile.
Carbon-ceramic brakes as standard, the Huracán’s new hybrid chassis is an integrated structure of carbon and aluminium elements. With a dry weight of 1,422 kg it enables the mighty power-to-weight ratio of just 2.33 kilograms per horse power.
The new 7-speed dual-clutch transmission ‘‘Lamborghini Doppia Frizione’’ (LDF) and fully electronically controlled four-wheel drive system. 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.
The Huracán will be making its world debut at the Geneva Motorshow 2014 and from January it will be the protagonist of over 130 private preview events in 60 cities across the world. But you’ll have to wait until Spring for first deliveries.
