Lamborghini and Its Huracán


7. March 2014

When Lamborghini went into the Geneva Show for the mass public unveiling of its Gallardo successor, the Huracán, the company said that through a series of private showings, it had already booked orders for 700 units. Given that the vehicle has a rumored price tag in excess of $300,000, that’s a fairly robust order book.


(It may be interesting to note that the Gallardo, which is the most successful Lambo ever from the point of view of sales, had a 10-year run, during which time 14,022 vehicles were produced.)

The Huracán has a structure produce with a combination of composites and aluminum. Consequently, the car has a dry weight of just 3,135 lb. Given that it has a 5.2-liter, naturally aspirated V10 engine that produces 610 hp, that translates into 5.1 lb. per horsepower, which explains why the car can accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in just 3.2 seconds. (And while on the subject of the powertrain, know that there is a seven-speed dual clutch transmission. In addition to which, there is an electronically controlled four-wheel-drive system.)

Huracan interior

This is no bare-bones speed racer, however, as the interior includes a 12.3-in. full-color TFT display for its instrumentation, and Nappa leather and Alcantara adorn the inside surfaces.

Of course, most of us probably can’t afford a Lamborghini Huracán. We probably can, however, afford an Automobili Lamborghini ballpoint pen, which is offered on the company’s website for just $29.00 (tax, shipping, etc. extra).
