Lamborghini’s replacement for the extremely successful Gallardo program, the Huracan LP 610-4, is expected to debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March and will most likely go on sale a few months after that. When that time comes, the internet will be rife with photos, information and video of the new entry-level Lambo. Until then, this short video of the Huracan doing some driving for a commercial shoot will have to do.
The video marks one of the first times we’ve actually seen the Huracan in action and, more importantly, heard its thundering 610 horsepower V10 engine. This is also the first public appearance of an orange Huracan, with initial renderings being shown in yellow and white and a grey example appearing in a previously shot commercial.
Lamborghini released initial specs and photos of the Huracan late last year. The previously mentioned 610 horsepower V10 engine, a carryover from the Gallardo, is mated to a seven-speed dual clutch transmission, allowing it to rocket from 0-62 mph in 3.2 seconds, 0-124 mph in a sliver under 10 seconds and on to a top speed of 201 mph. The Huracan will also feature a driving dynamics system, which allows for the user to switch between Strada (street), Sport and Corsa (race) modes. Each tier will make small adjustments to the baby Lambo’s engine, transmission, suspension, stability control and all-wheel drive system. Carbon-ceramic brakes will be standard, while magnetic ride control and variable ratio steering will be offered as options.
