Lamborghini Announces the Gallardo’s Successor, the 610 hp Huracán

Over the course of the Gallardo’s 10-year production run, Lamborghini sold some 14,000 examples of the car and its variants—including the Gallardo LP560-4, which Robb Report named 2009’s Car of the Year—making the it the Italian carmaker’s best-selling model of all time. But all good things must come to an end, and so Lamborghini has announced an all-new model to replace the legendary Gallardo: the Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4.

The new car’s exterior lines are definitively Lambo (as the images demonstrate). And if the manufacturer’s specs for the forthcoming vehicle are any indication, the Huracán will live up to (and even surpass) its predecessor’s power and performance. It will feature a new mid-mounted 5.2-liter V-10 engine delivering 610 hp at 8,250 rpm, and 413 ft lbs of torque at 6,500 rpm, enabling the car to reach 62 mph in 3.2 seconds on the way to a top speed of 202 mph. With the Lamborghini Doppia Frizione 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, four-wheel drive, three different driving modes, and carbon-ceramic brakes, drivers will be able to maintain control of all that oomph. (Lambo’s variable-steering-ratio and suspension-dampening systems are available as options.) The Huracán will also feature a new hybrid chassis, composed of both carbon fiber and aluminum, enabling a relatively svelte dry weight of 3,135 pounds. Cockpit highlights include a refined dash and central tunnel, napa leather and Alcantara, and a 12.3-inch touchscreen instrument panel.

No word yet on pricing, which Lambo will likely announce at the Geneva International Motor Show in March, when it plans to debut the car. The Huracán is scheduled to reach customers this spring as a 2015 model. (www.lamborghini.com)
