Lamborghini Huracan Expert Review - Check Advantages & Disadvantages

Well, it is very difficult when you have to analyse or review any Lamborghini model. Wondering why? Because every time you see one, you become speechless. And obviously, the Huracan family also does not has the option to be an exception. Huracan, which was launched in April 2017 in Miami, Florida will be hitting Indian roads in September 2017, Launched at a price of 3.43 crore.

Lamborghini Huracan Exteriors

Considered as the entry level Lamborghini, the Huracan has the signature low down front fascia and a very similar overall shape as compared to its elderly sibling, the Gallardo (which the company has decided to withdraw). The low sweeping bonnet with angular-shaped projector headlamps, air intakes extended from the front of the car and the aerospace-influenced exterior lines with aggressive vents and scoops to blend a look that’s phenomenal. All of the typical exquisite Lamborghini elements like the vents, ducts, slits are there (and they are in abundance). The large front and rear air intakes direct cooling air and headwind to increase down pressure on the front axle. Each design element contributes significantly to the aerodynamic shaped Huracan. Code named as the “Hexagon Project”, might be the reason the twin Y- shaped DRL projector lamps are also hexagonal. The mask angle on the Huracán is much obtuse thus making it somewhat less sharp.

Walking towards the side, the first thing one notice is the heavy influence from the Sesto design language, especially on the rear side. The large flared wheel arches are fitted with Pirelli 245/30 R20 tires for the front and 305/30 R20 for the rear wheels. For an avid Lambo fan, it will be very easy to spot the difference between the Gallardo and the Huracan with the side profile of the Huracán a bit short (4459 x 2236 x 1165 mm) and a wheelbase of 2620 mm and a ground clearance of 125mm (which might worry its Indian owners) with kerb weight 1422 kg. Also, the sharp and angular surfaces of the Gallardo are missing in the Huracan and the rims, which Lamborghini calls Giano.

The all LED tail lamp design resembles very much with the Veneno and it does not need any justification. Another example of well put engineering work is the twin set of up-swept double exhaust tips which on closer observation, can be actually seen ending inside the exhaust tips. The 2-seater beast gets a fibre engine cover which goes hand in hand with the rear, which is overall submerged in Black. Materials like Carbon-fibre, Lightweight aluminum, and reinforced plastic used for the front spoiler, rear bumper, rear spoiler, diffuser, center console, paddles, HVAC vents and door handles make the hybrid chassis 10%(or 40 kg) lighter than the Gallardo.

Lamborghini Huracan Interiors

 Get inside and the finest of everything will be at everything will be at your service— from Alcantara and brushed aluminum to the dreadful usage of carbon-fibre with Audi's virtual cockpit display. The engine start/stop button which is located under a red switch which looks very similar to the missile launch button in a fighter jet plane. The Lamborghini Piattaforma Inerziale (LPI) sensor system is mounted centrally beneath the car, measuring a 3D movement (roll, pitch and yaw) to ensure maximum stability and grip during the ride.

The very sporty interiors crafted in all dark and to contradict the exterior colour scheme. The overall interior styling of the Huracan looks similar to the Aventador, but it features wider size of the instrument cluster. There are various switches positioned on both sides of the steering wheel, while the paddles are placed behind the wheel. The Alcantara seats feature contrasting stitches, while the dashboard is covered in leather. It is equipped with various features such as touch screen infotainment system, climate control, electrically adjustable ORVMs, and a launch control button. Ohh...And who can forget the retractable soft-top which can be opened or closed in 17 seconds at speeds up to 50 kmph, flat-bottom multi-functional steering wheel, dashboard, air-con vents, switches & controls etc Other exquisite features include Alcantara seat upholstery.

Lamborghini Huracan Engine & Performance

The engine comes in three variants viz. one for the RWD (Rear Wheel Drive) version, one for the AWD(All Wheel Drive) versions and one for the Performante. The RWD versions make 580PS of max power and 560 Nm of peak torque, the AWD versions make 610 PS of max power and 580 Nm of peak torque. The RWD versions can attain 100 kmph in 3.6 seconds while the AWD versions take 3.2 seconds. The top speed for the RWDs is 319 kmph while for the AWD versions it is 325 kmph. The Performante is the most powerful of the Huracan on road. Power is all the way up to 639 PS while torque is up to 600 Nm, kerb weight is down by 40 kg. Well, obviously, all these figures cannot be achieved without compromising the mileage which is 5.61 kmpl. It also has the new Lamborghini Doppia Frizione, a 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 what Lamborghini’s are known for. The Sports mode sits in between the two other modes, striking a fine balance between the two ends.

Obviously, for a brand which is known for its speed, Safety is on their priority list. The Huracan gets Hydraulic dual-circuit brake system with vacuum brake servo unit, six-piston callipers for the front and Hydraulic dual-circuit brake system with vacuum brake servo unit, four-piston callipers for the rear. Also, the Huracan is loaded with a wide range of safety and security features including seven airbags, ABS (Anti-Lock Braking System), traction control, tire pressure monitoring, Electronic Stability Control (ESC), side impact beams, etc.
