Now that we finally have the Gallardo replacement, the 2014 Lamborghini Huracán LP610-4, Lamborghini is offering more than just a few press photos for us to drool over this week.
Check out the video below of the new Huracán doing some nighttime donuts around the Lamborghini factory. The V-10 sound is simply glorious.
The Lamborghini Huracán will be the brand’s entry-level supercar—if $200,000 is truly entry-level—slotted below the Aventador. The Huracán is a mid-engine supercar that will share its platform with the next-generation Audi R8. The two companies will make use of Volkswagen Group’s modular sports-car architecture.
601 horsepower comes from a naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V-10 engine. Sant’Agata says the new Lamborghini is good for a 3.2-second 0-to-62-mph run and a top speed of over 202 mph. Power is sent through all four wheels, though a two-wheel-drive Valentino Balboni edition shouldn’t be ruled out just yet. Lamborghini is known for its special-edition models.
Sadly, Lamborghini is nixing the manual transmission from the Huracán’s offerings. Only a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission will be available. There will be three driving modes: Strada (street), Sport, and Corsa (race). The modes are selectable via a thumb switch on the steering wheel. Carbon-ceramic brakes are included in the estimated $200,000 price tag.
