News Update: New Lamborghini Huracan

May 2, 2014

Launched at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show earlier this year, the Lamborghini Huracan has taken the super-car world by storm, with demand going through the roof. First deliveries of the new Huracan are expected in August this year, and there’s already a very long waiting list for the super-car – so much so that industry experts have predicted that the first owners stand to make a considerable profit through resale, with people willing to pay above list price to get their hands on the Huracan.

The stunning new Huracan was designed to replace the incredibly successful Lamborghini Gallardo. The Gallardo was first launched in 2003 and went on to be Lamborghini’s biggest success story, selling over 14,000 units. Obviously, Lamborghini were under pressure to ensure that the Huracan proves to be just as successful – working as a cash cow for the Italian auto-maker. We can confirm that Lamborghini have hit the nail on the head here – the Huracan is a beast! Literally translating to storm or hurricane, the Huracan certainly lives up to its powerful name.

The Lamborghini’s simple, origami-like angular lines make the Huracan look more like a stealth bomber than a car. Its slanted LED headlights give the Huracan an aggressive and sharp look. Put simply, it looks fast – and it is.

The Huracan’s chassis was developed in partnership with Audi for the new R8. Its innovative hybrid carbon-fibre and aluminium construction mean that the chassis is both incredibly lightweight and rigid. And that’s not the only thing the R8 and Lamborghini have in common, sharing the same 5.2 litre V10 engine block – but that’s where the similarities end. Lamborghini engineers have tuned the V10 to the max, producing 610 bhp and propelling the Huracan from 0-60 mph in 3.2 seconds. Lamborghini have stated that the car is capable of speeds over 200 mph, but an official top speed is unclear.

Lamborghini were keen to launch the Huracan as a completely new car, and not just a refresh of the Gallardo. The Huracan features a new transmission and 4-wheel drive system, improving on its handling and power delivery. Initial test drives have reported that the advanced stability systems and improved suspension inspires confidence in the bends, taming the V10 hurricane in the back and keeping the power firmly planted on the road. All these improvements come at a price, though – the Huracan is £30,000 more than its predecessor, so getting your hands on this bad boy will set you back £188,000.

Fancy a slice of the Lamborghini pie at a fraction of the price? We found this used Gallardo for just £52,000 – a relative bargain for a supercar! Looking for car finance?
