Lamborghini Huracán to Debut at Geneva Motor Show

By Paul Joseph

The new Lamborghini Huracán is set to make its official public debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March.

Featuring similar stylings to Lamborghini’s incumbent flagship model the Aventador, including angular headlamps and sharp lines, the Huracán comes with an augmented 5.2-litre V10 engine that now delivers an improved 610hp.

Thanks to its use of carbon fibre and aluminium, the new model weighs just 1,422kg – a power-to-weight ratio of just 2.33kg per horse power.

According to Lamborghini, the Huracán can go from 0-100km/h in 3.2 seconds and 0-200km/h in 9.9 seconds

Other notable specifications include a seven-speed, dual-clutch paddle-shift unit as standard, active four-wheel drive and carbon-ceramic brakes that are said to enable the car to come to a halt as rapidly as it accelerates.

The stand-out interior feature is a central 12.3-inch touch screen which can be customized to display a range of functions including showing how the engine is revving, maps and infotainment.

Lamborghini says that the first deliveries of the Huracán will begin in Spring 2014.
