Lamborghini's new Huracan is a beast: with Video
The Lamborghini Gallardo's a decade old, which is like 200 in supercar years, so Lamborghini's finally replacing it with another V10 monster: the all-new Huracan. Like it's bigger brother Aventador, it's 100% Italian raging bull, but for a lot less — ahem — dinero.
As with all Lamborghinis, the Huracan is named after a famous fighting bull. Huracan fought in Alicante in the late 1800s and did a fair amount of damage — something this car can do thanks to a tweaked version of the Gallardo's V10 that now puts out 610 horsepower and catapults the car to 60 miles per hour in just over three seconds, on its way to a top speed of over 200 miles per hour.
Shifting's done almost instantaneously, thanks to Lamborghini's first ever dual clutch transmission, and the whole car weighs just under 3200 pounds, improving everything from fuel economy to cornering prowess.
Inside, it's full of Nappa leather and Alcantara with contrasting stitching, but the biggest change for Lamborghini is the massive 12.3-inch full-color, fully customizable instrument panel.
The car's got three different modes that affect everything from the all-wheel drive characteristics to the magnetically-adjustable suspension and the variable steering. Turn it to the most extreme setting, and this is the sort of fun this car's capable of.
