The last Lamborghini Gallardo rolled recently off the production line and during its ten-year lifecycle a total of 14,022 cars were produced, making it the most successful Lamborghini ever.
Today a brand new Huracán LP 610-4 was revealed as a successor to the iconic Gallardo.
The Huracán has been developed from scratch and the design is quite similar to the bigger Aventador. It is sleek and yet aggressive with a very low roofline.
Like the Gallardo and most other Lamborghini models, it derives its name from the world of bullfighting. In this case after a fighting bull Huracán from Spain who fought in Alicante in August 1879.
Designed from scratch, the Huracan uses plenty of carbon fiber, aluminum and a new hybrid chassis, resulting in dry weight of 1,422 kg.
Power comes from a new 5.2 liter V10 with 710 horsepower linked to a new 7-speed dual clutch transmission.
0-62 mph comes in 3.2 seconds, 0-124 mph in 9.9 seconds and the top speed is over 201mph (325 km/h). Thanks to the Stop & Start technology, the combined EU consumption figure is just 12.5 liters per 100 km with CO2 emissions of 290 g/km.
The Lamborghini Huracán will make its global debut at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show in March with first owners getting their cars soon after.
