Behind the driver and passenger the Huracan has a 5.2-litre V10 petrol engine equipped with both direct and indirect injection. This V10 motor generates 448kW of power (610PS, 602hp) and 560Nm of torque, which goes to all four wheels via a 7-speed dual clutch transmission or Lamborghini Doppia Frizione (LDF).

Stopping power is provided by standard carbon ceramic discs. Also available are variable ratio power steering; magneto-rheologic suspension; and switches labelled Strada (Road), Sport and Corsa (Track) that alter the car’s gearbox, engine mapping, throttle, four-wheel drive system, stability control and engine noise.

The new Huracan goes on sale overseas beginning in the second quarter of 2014.

As with many previous Lamborghinis, the Huracan is named after a Spanish fighting bull. In this case it’s Huracan, a Conte de la Patilla breed that fought in 1879.
