The new baby Lambo has been an instant hit.
As the successor to the most successful Lamborghini of all time, the Huracan has some pretty big shoes to fill. The Gallardo was a hit for a decade, and the way the Huracan has started – with 700 orders secured during its first month of worldwide private VIP viewings – the next decade will be equally fruitful for the Raging Bull. To put that number into perspective, last year Lamborghini sold 2,121 cars in total worldwide.
We’ll get our first taste of the Huracan when it debuts at the Geneva Motor Show next month, with the new supercar the first to be unveiled at the Swiss show. Like the Gallardo, the Huracan uses a mid-mounted 5.2-liter V10 upgraded to deliver 601 hp and 413 lb-ft of torque. The heavily updated V10 comes with new direct and indirect injection systems, enabling the Huracan to crack 0-62 mph in 3.2 seconds, 0-124 mph in 9.9 seconds and reach a top speed of over 202 mph. Featuring a stop/start system, economy is 18.5 mpg on the US cycle. Pricing and availability in the US will be announced later this year.
