The number of supercars in India is definitely on a rise. The new owners make sure that the foreign-made cars get some desi-style welcome complete with rituals and prayers. Here is a Lamborghini Huracan from Bengaluru, Karnataka spotted getting the rituals done on the roadside.
The video shared by Spotter India shows a priest doing rituals on the brand-new Huracan. They even put a garland on the car. Soon after the rituals, we can see the Huracan running around wild on the roads. In India, such rituals are performed for the longevity of the vehicle and it is actually called Vahaan Pooja. There are many other occasions when similar rituals are performed on the vehicles. We recently saw celebrities like Karan Johar, Kartik Aryan and others performing a similar pooja on their vehicles.
Lamborghini Huracan EVO
The Huracan came to the market way back in 2013 as a replacement for the iconic Gallardo. In 2020, Lamborghini updated the model in India by bringing the new Huracan EVO. The all-new Huracan has found many customers in India. In fact, it became one of the best-selling Lamborghini in India before the arrival of the all-new Urus.
This seems to be the AWD variant of the Huracan. The Lamborghini Huracan AWD costs around Rs 4.5 crore, ex-showroom and around Rs 4.8 crore on-road in Bengaluru. The price of the Huracan EVO starts at around Rs 3.63 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 gets an RWD set-up.
There are numerous Lamborghini Huracan cars on 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 bad roads and illegal speed breakers in India. Moreover, the Lamborghini Huracan is made up of carbon fibre and aluminium which makes extremely lightweight and also adds strength to the body.
Powering the vehicle is a 5.2-litre naturally aspirated V10 that produces a maximum power of 640 PS and a peak torque of 600 Nm. It gets three different driving modes that change the power output and many other things in the car including how hard or soft the steering is. It can do 0-100 km/h in just 2.9 seconds. The power goes to all four wheels through a 7-speed automatic transmission. Lamborghini has electronically limited the speed of the Hurcan Evo to 325 km/h for safety. However, the car can do a lot more in unrestricted conditions.
The Lamborghini Urus, however, remains the fastest-selling vehicle from the Italian brand in the world and in India. It is so successful because it provides the best of both worlds. Urus has a good ground clearance that ensures that it can tackle our bad roads fairly easily. It has decent practicality with a huge boot and it can seat 4 occupants comfortably. Then there are sports cars like looks and exhilarating performance.
