The Lamborghini Huracan LP 610-4 is now officially in Malaysia, having made its debut in Kuala Lumpur yesterday. The Huracan replaces the successful Gallardo in Lamborghini’s line-up, and retails for about RM2.1 million with duties, give or take. The amount for duties isn’t really finalised yet, but if you have the ability to buy the car sans duty, you’ll have to put up RM1.2 million.
The name Huracan pays homage to a Spanish fighting bull. The 1,422 kg supercar is powered by a new “Iniezione Diretta Stratificata” naturally-aspirated 5.2 litre V10 making 610 hp at 8,250 rpm and 560 Nm of torque at 6,500 rpm.
The 100 km/h sprint is done in just 3.2 seconds – wait a while longer and 200 km/h is hit in 9.9 seconds from stop, on to a top speed of 325 km/h. Power is sent to four wheels via a seven-speed “Lamborghini Doppia Frizione” dual-clutch transmission, a first for a Lambo and an upgrade from the Gallardo’s e.gear automated manual transmission.
Three drive modes are available – Strada, Sport and Corsa, in that order of how hardcore the drive is. The drive modes change the engine and gearbox logic, the all-wheel drive system, stability control, and even the exhaust system. Watch the video below to hear the difference between Strada and Corsa.
The Huracan looks great in yellow, as seen on the 2014 Geneva Motor Show showfloor, so check that out as well as studio shots of the young bull.
