The Lamborghini Huracán LP610-4 Lands in Manila
Lamborghini Manila unveiled the latest chapter in the storied supercar maker’s history by unveiling the all-new Huracán LP610-4—the spiritual successor to the Gallardo. Like the Gallardo, the Huracán pushes the envelope on design, performance, and sophistication. A success story for Lamborghini, the Gallardo sold more than 14,000 units globally making it the most successful Lamborghini ever made.
The new Huracán aims even higher. Named after a fighting bull of the Spanish Conte de la Patilla, the Huracán is known for its unyielding character that made it invincible. The car is no different. It’s pure Lamborghini from tip to stern. It’s extremely sculpted with hexagonal themes running throughout the entire car. The Huracán also makes use of LED for lighting—an absolute first in the super car segment.
The Huracán is powered by a 5.2-liter V10 engine generating 610 horsepower and 560 Nm of torque. It can power this mid-engined supercar from 0-100 km/h in just 3.2 seconds and reach a terminal velocity of 325 km/h. Yet, it’s more fuel efficient than ever before thanks to technology such as Iniezione Diretta Stratificata which combines both direct and indirect fuel injection. It can do up to 8 km/L and just 290 grams of CO2 per kilometer. Connected to the engine is a new 7-speed dual-clutch automatic called, Lamborghini Doppia Frizione or LDF. The lightweight body also means the Huracán has a power-to-weight ratio of just 2.33 kilograms per horsepower thanks to its aluminum space frame and several key body panels made up of carbon-fiber reinforced polymer.
Powered is sent to all four wheels with MagneRide electromagnetic damper control as an available option. On each corner, it has 20-inch wheels measuring 8.5 J in front and 11.0 J at the back. They are shod with 245/30R20 and 305/30R20 Pirelli tires respectively.
Inside, the Huracán is innovative and high-tech with a jetfighter feel. The 12.3-inch TFT display dominates and provides all the necessary instrumentation in place of the traditional gauge cluster. It can be re-configured in several ways as well. Like always, it can be configured in several ways all with extremely high attention to detail and craftsmanship.
Orders for the all-new Lamborghini Huracán are now being taken at Lamborghini Manila.
