It’s been a successful strategy, as there’s been no shortage of takers who rightly lust after such a usable and alluring sports car. In fact, the Gallardo has become this Italian automaker’s best-selling model, with units numbering14,022. The Lamborghini Gallardo’s 10 year life span recently came to the end when the last unit, the LP 570-4 Spyder Performante, rolled off the factory in Sant’Agata Bolognese.

The profile’s design seems to be influenced by the 2010 Lamborghini Sesto Elemento concept. The lateral windows come together to create a hexagonal form inserted like a glass jewel in the car’s profile. The Lamborghini Huracan features LED illumination on the front and rear which give the sports car an unmistakable look at night. Both the front and rear LED lights are fitted as standard.

The extensive use of carbon fibre and aluminium components in the Huracan’s chassis enables not only the excellent power-to-weight ratio of just 2.33 kilograms per horse power, but also guarantees race-car precision with outstanding stiffness. The power of the V10 engine is brought to the road via the new 7-speed dual-clutch transmission “Lamborghini Doppia Frizione” (LDF) and fully electronically controlled four-wheel drive system.

The different driving modes of the Lamborghini Huracan can be selected via a driving dynamics selector switch in the steering wheel: STRADA, SPORT and CORSA. The different modes ensure extensive modification in road behaviour of the Huracan. Braking is catered by standard carbon-ceramic brakes.

Fine Nappa leather and Alcantara distinguish the interior, with several colour combinations offered to ensure broad individualization options. The design of dashboard and central tunnel underline a new lightness in the interior. Superb craftsmanship guarantees the highest quality and sense of luxury throughout. Just like its bigger sibling, the Aventador, the Huracan gets a fighter jet inspired starter button.

However, with its radical design that stands out more than its predecessor, the Lamborghini Huracan will surely out pace the Gallardo in sales volume. There’s no doubt that the Lamborghini Huracan is a true, world-class exotic. A roadster version is expected early next year. Currently over 3000 Lamborghini Huracans have been sold worldwide.
