World Debut: The Lamborghini Huracan LP 610-4

Not necessarily into the brash, bullish, brute image generally associated with Lamborghinis?

Then you’ll love the latest one. Consider if you please the new Hurácan LP 610-4, Lamborghini’s 610-horsepower carbon fiber coupe. Designed as the successor to the iconic Gallardo, it’s considerably more refined than previous offerings from the Italian brand with a fresh new look inspired by the excellent Aventador and refined in a new improved body made of carbon fiber and aluminum. (Translation: It’s lighter with better rigidity!)

Hurácan has a mid-mounted 5.2-liter V10 engine that pairs the aforementioned 610 horsepower with 413 pound-feet of torque over all four wheels. It also offers Lamborghini’s first-ever seven-speed, dual-clutch transmission. (Sorry boys, no manual drive available.)

All to say that this car will hit 62mph in 3.2 seconds and has a top speed of more than 200 mph.

Also on offer in the new whip: Standard carbon ceramic brakes, three drive modes and a stop-start technology that improves efficiency. Magnetic shocks and a variable steering system are optional.

And lest you traditionalists wonder, this Lamborghini, too, is named after a famous fighting bull. The bull Huracán of the Spanish Conte de la Patilla breed was known for his outstanding courage and strong sense of attack. He fought in Alicante in August 1879 and according to Lamborghini records showed “unrelenting character” while remaining defiant and invincible, thus entering into the legend of fighting bulls’ history.

Private previews of the car start next month, but look for the world debut next March at the Geneva Motor Show. I’m not typically the bullish type, but if Hurácan handles anything like its predecessor, we’ll get along just fine.
