Vivaan Kapoor, a budding sportsperson in trap shooting, has recently added a Lamborghini Huracan to his collection. Kapoor, who recently won a bronze medal in the International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF) Junior World Championship in Peru in August, bought this green-coloured Huracan LP610-4 from a Bengaluru-based used car seller, in his hometown in Jaipur, Rajasthan.
The Lamborghini Huracan LP610-4 bought by Kapoor is the all-wheel-drive coupe version of the sports car, which comes with a 5.2-litre naturally aspirated V10 engine. Coupled with a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox, this engine makes 610 PS of maximum power and 560 Nm of maximum torque.
Coming back to the Lamborghini Huracan LP 610-4, it costs around Rs 3.7 crore, ex-showroom and around Rs 4.8 crore on-road in Bengaluru. The price of the Huracan starts at around Rs 3 crores in India but the one seen here is the more powerful version that sends power to all four wheels, which is what makes it more expensive. The base model of the Huracan only gets RWD set-up.
There are numerous Lamborghini Huracan cars on the Indian roads and its ability to rise by 45mm makes it so much practice on the roads. The air suspension of the vehicle can add as much as 45mm of ground clearance, which is perfect to drive on the bad roads and illegal speed breakers in India. Moreover, the Lamborghini Huracan is made up of carbon fibre and aluminium that making extremely lightweight and also adds strength to the body.
Car gifts are common for sportsmen
Apart from this, Renault also awarded Kiger compact SUVs to Olympians Mirabai Chanu, Lovlina Borgohain, MC Mary Kom, Ravi Kumar Dahiya and Bajrang Punia. And that’s not all – as a noble gesture to all those Olympians who missed winning the bronze medal at the Tokyo Olympics were awarded Altroz hatchbacks by Tata Motors. However, the participants of only highly valuable sporting events like the Olympics get such gifts. Also, only the gold medal winners get much attention from most car manufacturers and authorities.
The ongoing year has been applauding for sportspersons, who have won accolades on global stages and have been rewarded with brand new cars from many carmakers. The gold medalists in Javelin Throw in Tokyo Olympics, Neeraj Chopra and Sumit Antil were awarded customized Mahindra XUV700, which is called ‘Javelin Edition’. This special edition of the XUV700 was adorned with golden touches in and out and special badges on the front fenders, which denote their respective distances covered by their Javelin throws in the final rounds.
