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.
