The successor to their long running Gallardo model, the Lamborghini Huracan was first unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in 2014, and first rolled off the production line in the summer of that year.
If you’re wondering how it got its name, it’s from the Spanish term for hurricane. But it is also derived, as all Lamborghinis are, from the name of a Spanish fighting bull, owing to its bold and brawny stature.
Its bovine equivalent was so called ‘Huracan’ because of its fearless courage when in combat - qualities that this supercar shows in abundance once it is wrestled out onto the circuit track or road.
On first impressions, there may not seem much to differentiate the Huracan from its predecessor, particularly as it uses the same 5.2 litre V10 engine, tuned to 602 bhp. But it’s sheer acceleration and performance will tell you a different story. It blisters from 0 - 60 mph in 2.5 seconds, and clocks in a top speed just a touch over 200 mph.
