The successor to their popular 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 from the name of a Spanish fighting bull, as indeed all Lamborghini car models are named. Its bovine equivalent was so called ‘Huracan’ because of its fearless courage when in combat.
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.
Little wonder that it remains the fastest Lamborghini model ever to lap the test track on the popular motoring show Top Gear. With TrackDays, you can get to drive a Lamborghini Huracan for the day on a similar track at the home of the Top Gear test track at Dunsfold Park in Surrey, as well as many other fantastic locations and venues across the UK.
