New Lamborghini Huracan Revealed, Makes 610 HP

For little less than a month, Lamborghini had been teasing us, trying to get us excited about something. We didn't know what for sure, but we hoped it was something meaningful, something that would make us remember the last weeks of 2013 forever. Our hopes were rewarded today when official word reached our ears: the new V10 supercar has been revealed.

Its name is the Huracan and it also has the designation LP610-4. Impressed? We are!

First things first, there's the design, which has not been taken down the root of the Aventador. In fact, the Huracan owes more to the Sesto Elemento than anything else. Its proportions, meanwhile, are a tribute to the Gallardo, the car it replaces. Its especially sexy from the back, where lines from the bottom sill, exhaust, bumper and fender rise up at an angle to impose power and presence onto the world.

The rear has to be our favorite part, our second favorite being the interior. Only one photo for now, but enough to deduce it's going to be a wonderful event getting into one of these things. Alcantara and leather everywhere, with sharp edges and hexagonal motifs scattered throughout in a tribute to the sixth element of the periodic table. Speaking of carbon, you get carbon-ceramic brakes as standard and that's no bad thing. However, you'll have to pay for magnetic ride control.

While some will not welcome the fact that it hasn't got an all-new engine, with 610 PS at its disposal the 5.2-liter V10 is impressive enough, basically on par with its rivals from McLaren and Ferrari. Just like before, power is sent to all four wheels and distributed in a much better fashion thanks to en electronic control module. This is a welcomed upgrade and so is the new seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.

Despite being Lambo's cheapest car, the LP610-4 actually has more power than the original Murcielago, which came out with a 580 PS 6.2-liter back in 2001. It's also very fast. 0 to 100 km/h in 3.2 seconds, 200 km/h in 9.9 and a top speed of 201 (325 km/h).
