Three more LP610s have landed. One will supposedly make its way to Delhi and the rest to Bangalore. Sadly, no interesting colors here. Same reds and whites.

Yes, both the Bangalore Huracans are dealer cars and will be on the display floor from next week.

The first customer car, destined for Kerala will reach by September end

I got very excited to see what I thought was an ML-Class AMG car! : D but then the car in the middle lane moved forward to reveal the Lamborghini Huracan 0_0

Best not to mention the speeds I had to do in my little Swift to keep up with the Lambo and despite that I only caught up because he had to slow down for the toll booth at the Sealink : P

I haven't removed the number plates as they are temp so I don't think it would matter. If it still breaks the rules mods do go ahead and delete the images/entire post : ).

Whoa that's an amazing set of pics !

The Huracan looks orgasmic !

When I first saw the images of the Huracan over the world wide web, I wondered why Lambo, why !

But all these images of the Huracan has put all my doubts to rest. This thing is a proper drool-maal, just like any other Lamborghini.

Spent some time with the Huracán yesterday at Lambo Bangy. Amazing piece of machinery it is! As pictures are prohibited in the showroom premises, decided to write down a blog article on it. Copy-pasted below if anyone would like giving it a read.

Quote:
We had the opportunity to see the all new Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4 in the presence of its predecessor and its bigger sibling, the Aventador LP 700-4 and its super successful predecessor, the Gallardo LP 560-2 50° Anniversario Edizione Limitata . All thanks to the very nice guys at Lamborghini Bengaluru. In the process of stalking the Huracán, so close that if it were a female it would slap me right on my face, I could see a lot of typical Lamborghini influences. The influences were aplenty, therefore we decided to pen down this article for our blog to give our fans and fellow petrolheads a better idea of the newest Lamborghini to hit the block.

First up, the exterior.
This particular car was finished in a blazing shade of Rosso Mars, or red for the layman. The shade was bright enough to brighten up a rather gloomy cloudy day. At first glance, the shade is a proper poke in the eye for Ferrari. On closer inspection, however,this shade looked much brighter than the Maranello staple, Rosso Corsa. Up front, the Huracán looks super aggressive. Gone are those rectangular Gallardo headlamps and the trapezoidal chiseled air dams. The Huracán gets slit-like headlamps with double-Y shaped DRLs. The entire car stays true to it’s pre launch code name, the “Hexagon Project” to such an extent that even the projector lamps are hexagonal. The nose on the Huracán is much smoother and much more streamlined than the Gallardo’s. The nose on the Huracán doesn’t borrow too much from the Aventador, which is good so that it has an identity of its own. Seeing the Gallardo and the Huracán side by side, the Gallardo looks effortlessly aggressive ,while the Huracán looks like it is trying hard to look angry. But, all this quite works to the Huracán’s advantage giving it a distinct character.

Walking towards the side, first thing one notices is the heavy influence from the Sesto Elemento design language, especially on the rear half. The rims on this car also went with the Hexagonal theme and have got beautiful depth and concavity to them. It is safe to say that these rims, which Lamborghini calls Giano, look much better in person than in pictures. It was the cars side profile where I could hardly find any similarities with the other two siblings.The side profile of the Huracán looked a bit short when compared to that of the Gallardo. The Huracán also loses the crisp, sharp lines and planar surfaces that the Gallardo was known for. This is possibly one of the reasons why it looks smaller.

The rear of the Huracán,which has possibly been the most debated and discussed part, with an equal number of people liking it and hating it.On a personal note, it is one section that I cannot get over! The tail lamp design is straight off the Veneno and sports a smoked finish which, in one word, looks smoking hot. Another detail that gels really well are the new oblong, up-swept exhaust tips. On closer inspection, the oblong tips are just exhaust housings, while the actual exhaust tips end inside the housings. Clever job there by Lamborghini! The engine cover on this car was sadly not glass but the fibre engine cover goes really well with the rear, which is mostly dominated in bits of black all over. On lifting the cover to reveal the engine, compared to the Gallardo the engine bay on the Huracán looks pretty cramped. The comparatively shorter body work is to blame for this. The Huracan’s V10 too gets a “X” engine brace just like the bigger V12 on the Aventador.

Getting inside the car, it is a totally different world as compared to the Gallardo, which also shows how Lamborghini has evolved in 10 years of the Gallardo.In short, the interior on the LP 610 can be called light years ahead of the Gallardo’s. It borrows heavily from the LP 700 while following the Hexagon theme and also retains tiny bits bit of the Gallardo’s DNA. This car had a Bicolor Sportive interior finished in Rosso and Nero to complement the exterior color scheme. Delving into the brownie point, the center console on the Huracán is no less than a work of art. It borrows the Aventador’s sloping fascia and even streamlines it a bit more than that of the Aventador. The Gallardo’s iconic tri-gauge which sat above the air-con gets a modern treatment in the Huracán and is moved to a spot below the air-con vents. The slew of knurled aluminum switch gears survive from the Gallardo with a bright red parking light switch in the middle. A little further down, there sits the Starter button, with a fighter jet like red flap on it, straight off the Aventador! One thing I miss on this is the analogue dials. The dials are all TFT which looks thoroughly modern but somehow don’t work for me. Call me old school, but I loved the Gallardo’s analogue dials. Wish Lamborghini continued with those on the Huracán too.

By now you must have realized that the Huracán doesn’t borrow too much from its siblings, but it cleverly borrows the best from them. This gives it a totally distinct identity. And oh, it also has the new Lamborghini Doppia Frizione, fancy name for the dual clutch transmission. The new ANIMA system with Strada, Sport and Corsa modes give it three different distinct characters. Coupled with the Doppia Frizione, Strada mode is for daily driving and the Corsa mode turns it into an uncivilized animal, what Lamborghini’s are famed for.The Sport mode sits in between them, striking a fine balance between the two ends of the spectrum.
And incase you were just wondering how much the options of these cars cost, here are numbers some for you. The matte paint comes for a whopping ₹20 lakh while pearl effect paint can be ordered for ₹6lakh and the optional 20″ forged Mimas rims cost a few lakh. This makes me think how much would ordering one in Verde Singh cost!

The Lamborghini Gallardo was a legend and shall forever have a special place in the hearts of us hardcore Lamborghini fanatics. It ruled the roost (and bullied the stables) for nearly a decade.As all good things must come to an end, so has the Lamborghini Gallardo. The Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4 ups the ante and gives us the opportunity experience the “Bull” on an absolutely different level, with much more power and technology packed into it. As with all Lamborghini’s, this one will surely be one to watch out for.

We hope that the article gave you a good insight into the new baby Lamborghini. Err… lets not call it the baby Lambo, this thing is a whole new beast from the mad geniuses at Sant’Agata Bolognese!

Let us know what you think about the Huracán, about the article and comment in any questions you have, we will try our best to answer it!

Cheers,
Team AA.

NOTE
A HUGE thanks to the guys at Lamborghini Bengaluru for having us over and spending their precious time showing us around the Huracan despite being busy on that particular day. Thanks a lot guys!
And oh, the Chairman of Lamborghini Bengaluru celebrates his birthday today, so here is us wishing him a very happy birthday on the behalf of the entire Indian automotive community.

The Huracan is longer on paper but for some reason it looks way smaller than the Gallardo when seen side by side.
