Lamborghini Huracan features 610 hp 5.2L V10 engine

Lamborghini has unveiled an all-new sports car called the Huracan LP 610-4. The new car is powered by a big 5.2L V10 engine producing 610 hp and 560nm of torque. Lamborghini claims that the Huracan will make the sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.2 seconds on its way to a top speed of over 325 km/h.

The new Huracan is the replacement for the recently retired Lamborghini Gallardo. The Huracan looks a lot like a little Aventador to me. Inside the car gets an all-new interior that features a large 12.3-inch full color TFT instrument panel. That screen delivers all the details that the driver needs from a tachometer to navigation maps.

The driver can configure that screen into different setups. The seats are covered with nappa leather and Alcantara with multiple color combinations to choose from. The Huracan uses a hybrid chassis made from a structure of carbon and aluminum elements. The car has a dry weight of 1422 kg.

The lightweight of the car and the high power V10 gives the car a power to weight ratio of 2.33kg per hp. Lamborghini says that the lightweight also gives the car racecar-like handling and precision. The Huracan also uses start-stop technology to reduce emissions producing 12.5 liters per 100 km of CO2. The V10 puts its power to the ground via a new 7-speed dual-clutch transmission and the car has all-wheel drive. The driver can also choose from different driving modes that modify the behavior of the car. Pricing is unannounced, but shouldn’t be too far from the price of the Gallardo since the Huracan is that car’s replacement.
