The Huracán is the worthy successor of the Gallardo, classes above its predecessor in terms of impression and intent. Although there aren’t any obvious differences in design, the subtle details attract attention with precision of execution and harmony – the Y-shaped LED daytime lamps and the side glass that tucks into the body are some of the more beautiful features. The sharp, aerodynamic lines are aesthetically pleasing as well as functional as they fend the air and improve performance.

The interior is comfortable and luxurious with a state-of-the-art 12.3-inch digital instrument panel with three full-screen modes for easy navigation, shifting at the limit or testing the terminal velocity. An astounding feature is the engine shut-off at spotlights for a ten-percent increase in fuel economy. With a maximum speed of 325km/h and acceleration from 0 to 100 in just 3.2 seconds the Huracán can be defined by a single expression: “control over power”.
The $428,500 vehicle stands out with simplicity and beautiful symmetry, where engineering expertise and functional design meet to create a car of unprecedented prestige and Italian craftsmanship.
Lamborgini have stuck to the V10 engine, with 5.2-litre capacity that was used in the Gallardo model, although the Huracán boasts 449kW of power (or 610 horsepower) and 560Nm of torque. A seven-speed dual-clutch transmission distributes power to all four wheels and there are three separate driving modes to choose from via the steering wheel-mounted ANIMA ((Adaptive Network Intelligent Management).
These modes are Strada (street), Sport and Corsa (track) and bring a whole new level of superb driving experience.
The cockpit-style ambiance of the interior is unusual at first, albeit surprisingly comfortable. Some core elements, such as the font on the buttons, are shared with Auidi. The leather-lined wheel and seating bares the mark of the highest level of Italian craftsmanship, built around the driver for a unique experience and uncompromising quality.
