The 610-horsepower Lamborghini Huracan is named after a famous fighting bull which was known for having exceptional courage. Lamborghini has a long history of naming its crazy creations after some seriously peeved-off bovines, so we’ll skip the history lesson and get to the good stuff.
How about a top speed of 210 miles per hour? Or you could drool over the fact that this mid-engine Lambo can sprint from zero to 60 mph in 3.2 seconds.
Behind the 2-passenger cabin is a snarling 5.2-liter V-10 engine that is coupled to a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission.
Power is fed to all four wheels, for the ultimate in performance and all-weather traction.
Three separate driving modes can be selected via a switch on the steering wheel. These control everything from the engine and transmission performance, to the level of traction control available, and even the intensity of the exhaust note.
Believe it or not, Lamborghini has integrated some fuel-saving tech into this outrageous machine. A stop-start system is fitted as standard, to help limit fuel consumption when stuck in traffic, or while waiting at a stoplight.
Lamborghini hasn’t menitioned price, but you know this isn’t going to be cheap.
When it goes on sale in spring 2014, expect the Huracan to carry a price-tag in the region of $200,000.
