19/12/2013 – New Lamborghini Huracan

The 5.2-litre V10 that powers the current LP 570-4 will reportedly feature in the new model, but it will be modified to produce an additional 38bhp, increasing its output to 600bhp and offering lower emissions.

Revisions are also expected to be made to the gearbox with a new seven-speed dual-clutch transmission replacing the old e-gear system. It should help the Huracan hit 62mph in a little over three seconds and top 200mph.

While weight will be kept to a minimum thanks to the extensive use of carbon fibre and aluminium – in fact, the Huracan should tip the scales at a lean 1,300kg in two-wheel drive form, while the four-wheel drive will see 30kg added to that.

The Huracan will also share its platform with the new 2015 Audi R8, so we’ll likely see a groundbreaking multimaterial chassis with aluminium and carbon-fibre structural components to shave some weight off.

The new model is expected to replace the Gallardo in the middle of 2014. After 10 years on sale the Gallardo sold 14,022 models with 35 variants of the supercar making it into production. It was the most successful car to come manufactures Sant’Agata plant in Bolognese.

No official details have been released by Lamborghini but a price tag of around £165,000 has been rumoured. A reveal at the Geneva Motor Show in March is also on the cards.
