Lamborghini has unveiled the Gallardo successor (or you could say Son of Gallardo). It has been named Huracan which is apparently pronounced ‘Ooh-ra-cahn’.
When it arrives next year, the new baby Lambo will do battle with the Ferrari 458 and McLaren 12C so it’s going to need all the horsepowers it can muster.
Fear not though, it comes with some pretty impressive stats: 602bhp and 413lb ft from a 5.2-litre V10, four-wheel drive, 0-62mph in 3.2 seconds and a top speed of ‘over 202mph’.
The Huracan employs a new dual-clutch ‘box called ‘Lamborghini Doppia Frizione’ (LDF) and its power reaches all four wheels through a proper flappy-paddle gearbox.
It uses what Lamborghini calls a ‘hybrid chassis’, an integrated spaceframe structure of carbon and aluminium.
Carbon ceramic brakes come as standard, while variable magnetorheological suspension – as found on the Audi R8 and Ferrari F12, among others – is offered as an option.
The Huracan will be officially unveiled at the Geneva motorshow in March 2014.
