The Huracan, concentrated performance and technology

From the same stock as the Gallardo, the model it replaced in 2014, the Lamborghini Huracan is a car that stands out from the rest. The sharp styling of the Lamborghini marque breathes dynamism and a sporting character. This 2019 new arrival improves performance levels, already of the first order, even further. Let's look around the car ...

Presentation of the Lamborghini Huracan

The Lamborghini Huracan (which literally means “hurricane”) is a supercar which first appeared in the Geneva show in 2014 as the successor to the famous Gallardo. Since 2019, the model has undergone a second phase of production to offer even more impressive performance: The Huracan EVO. This beauty hosts a naturally aspirated V10 engine producing from 580 to 640 horsepower. It can achieve 0 to 100 km/h in 3.4 seconds and a maximum speed of 330 km/h. There is so much here telling you that the company doesn’t just want this to be a bit-part player in the super sports car parking lot.

Ever faithful to the principles behind the company’s success, the Huracan has curves and careful design which blend sporting character, elegance and aggression. The full LED headlights give it an imposing bearing to match its reputation. The carbon fibre finish which it proudly wears are a badge of distinction of this exceptional model.

As for the passenger compartment, this newcomer to the Lamborghini stable is as comfortable as possible, with custom finishes available in leather, in Alcantara or carbon-fibre for very high-quality results. The top of the range on-board technology that the model offers also contributes to the charm and unique driving experience delivered by the Huracan.

The success of this model is plain for all to see; the Huracan is the second best-selling Lamborghini model of all time after the Gallardo, with no fewer than 10,000 vehicles sold between 2014 and 2018. Elegance therefore goes hand in hand with performance when it comes to the Lamborghini Huracan.

The more refined Huracan models: Performante and Evo

As its name suggests the Huracan Performante is a version that has been fully re-worked to offer performance of a very high level. Synonymous with uncompromising elegance and sporting character, it proudly bears the Italian flag on the base of its doors. The improvements mainly relate to its 640-horsepower engine, its weight and to the carbon-fibre materials used in its chassis to achieve unprecedented levels of aerodynamic performance plus an extraordinary weight/power ratio of 2.2. kg/hp. Designed to part the air with its ultra-light materials (alloy rims and carbon-fibre components) and front and rear spoilers, the Huracan Performante excels on the road, offering incredibly enjoyable driving comfort. The intelligent ALA (‘Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva’) system combined with the car’s optimised engine and hyper-reactive suspension also ensure unique dynamics for achieving unmatched top speeds. With the same weight-saving approach, the interior of the supercar is fitted with carbon-fibre seats and Alcantara coverings, providing the highest levels of quality, refinement and performance. This model is also available in a 580-horsepower convertible version as the Huracan Performante Spyder.

The Huracan Evo is a version which embodies Lamborghini’s evolution to even more astonishing levels. This Huracan is in fact the result of high-quality meticulous work, which has allowed the driver’s needs to be matched to the car’s reactions. Indeed, the integral LDVI (‘Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Integrata’) system brilliantly allows drivers to manage the Huracan Evo's dynamics. The intelligent system anticipates drivers’ needs and adapts independently and instantaneously as a function of the selected driving mode and the external environment. The aerodynamic design of the car is further optimised with an improved 640 horsepower engine, a high-performance wheel-steering system and bodywork designed to further facilitate the passage of air. High quality materials (leather, Alcantara and carbon-fibre) used for the interior of the car contribute to ensuring even more driver comfort. The new MMI also uses an ultra-modern touch-screen on the central console to show the car's behaviour and characteristics in real time, to receive road information and use the entertainment options that are available to their utmost.

As for the Huracan RWD, this offers 580 horsepower and different driving modes (Sport, Corsa and Strada) for an adaptive driver experience. Like the Performante model, it has a Huracan Spyder convertible version.
