Lamborghini this week officially launched its new V10 powered Huracan in India.
Replacing the ageing and best-selling Lamborghini Gallardo, the Huracan is a long-awaited entrant in the supercar market. The Huracan has been priced at Rs. 3.43 crore (Ex-showroom Delhi) for the base model with final prices varying depending on how an owner decides to spec their car.
The Lamborghini Huracan is powered by a 5.2-litre, naturally aspirated V10 engine which produces 618PS of peak power at 8250rpm and peak torque of 560Nm. The engine is mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, the first for Lamborghini.
The Italian supercar manufacturer claims that the Huracan can sprint between 0-100kmph in 3.2 seconds and 0-200kmph in 9.9 seconds with a top speed of more than 325kmph. The Lamborghini Huracan currently comes with all wheel drive although lighter, more powerful; rear wheel drive versions are expected next year.
Dealers have already confirmed that the Huracan has received a very good response from the elite supercar buying audience. With deliveries expected to start soon, all Lamborghini dealers in the country have received confirmed bookings for the Huracan that exceed the quotas that have been allotted to India by the Italian supercar manufacturer.
The Lamborghini Huracan has also been a great international success and has already taken the supercar market by storm with over 700 orders in under a month after its launch at the Geneva motor show earlier this year. In India, the Huracan will go up against the likes of the Ferrari 458, the Porsche 911 Turbo, the Audi R8 V10+ and the Aston Martin Vanquish.
