Days after the Lamborghini Huracan supercar was unveiled, an example of the Gallardo-replacement supercar was shipped into India, in order to showcase the Italian supercar maker’s latest product to prospective buyers. Bookings were opened and Lamborghini is said to have gotten a strong booking number. The car will land in India later this year, and will be positioned under the flagship Aventador.
The car’s official launch will happen in India during September 2014, from when the car’s official deliveries will begin. The Huracan’s India launch in September is more of a formality given the fact that the price of the car is already out. The Huracan is priced at 3.41 crore rupees, exshowroom Delhi. So, the launch of the supercar is more of an event to mark the start of customer deliveries.
The Huracan has big boots to fill as the now-discontinued Gallardo has been Lamborghini’s best selling supercar for a full decade. The Huracan gets a naturally aspirated 5.2 liter-V10 petrol engine that outputs 610 Bhp of peak power generated at 8,250 rpm and 560 Nm of peak torque delivered at 6,500 rpm. The engine gets both direct and indirect injection, and a start-stop system as standard.
The Huracan comes with an all wheel drive layout and a 7 speed dual clutch automatic gearbox. The Huracan sprints from standstill to 100 Kph in 3.2 seconds while the 200 Kph mark is achieved in 9.9 seconds. The top speed of the supercar is rated at 325 Kph. Lamborghini claims a 8 Kmpl fuel efficiency for the Huracan, which is quite exemplary for a supercar. Of course, this figure will be more than halved when the Huracan is well and truly given the stick.
The Huracan features a chassis that is a hybrid with carbon fiber and aluminum, and this combination is largely responsible for the supercar’s light weight of 1,422 kilograms. The mid engined supercar gets a 42:58 weight distribution. Carbon ceramic brakes, different drive modes and a magneto-rheological damper control system for the suspension comes standard on the Huracan.
