In Pictures: Latest Lamborghini designed for speed

Lamborghini has just unveiled its Huracán LP 610-4, replacing the Gallardo. Made from carbon-fibre and aluminum, the Italian performance car has a top speed of more than 325 km/h and a 0-100 km time of 3.2, making it a competitor to Ferrari’s new 458 Speciale. Like most Lamborghinis, the Huracán takes its name from bullfighting. The fighting bull Huracán was known for courage and a strong sense of attack, says Lamborghini. Even Lamborghini is considering fuel economy now. This new model has a combined EU fuel economy of 12.5 litres/100 km, using Stop and Start technology for an improvement over its predecessor’s rating of 20.4 city/9.4 highway. The discontinued Gallardo, the company's most popular car, had sales of 14,022 cars in its 10-year span. It sold for $237,000 (U.S.). Pricing for the Huracán has not yet been released.

Other vehicles such as the Honda Civic are popular for parts, because there are so many on the road. Thieves are also known to change the VIN of stolen cars and sell them in Canada.
