Lamborghini Huracan LP 610-4 – It’s the new Gallardo

Lamborghini Huracan

 

What do I want for Christmas? Now that Lamborghini has unveiled their replacement for the Gallardo I might have to revise my list. Hit the jump for some pics and the hilariously translated press kit about the new Lamborghini Huracan LP 610-4.

We’re unabashed fans of all things Lamborghini.  Their sheer charisma and brash disregard for all things practical makes Lamborghini one of the greatest supercar makers of all time.  Yes Ferrari does have some serious racing heritage and generally a Ferrari will cane it’s Lamborghini rival around a race track but the sheer ridiculousness that is a “typical” Lambo puts them on the top of my list of cars that I’ll be buying if I win the lottery.

With their acquisition by the Volkswagen Group in 1998 some have argued that Lamborghini has lost some of it’s “specialness” but it is hard to argue with the results. Last year the Aventador was runner up or honorable mention in our prestigious best sports car under $30,000, best Sedan, best new car, and best supercar of the year awards.

If you can’t stomach the $400,000 expense of the Lamborghini Aventador they do have an entry level model.  The Gallardo has been the staple starter Lamborghini for the last decade and they have managed to sell over 14,000 of them.  With Gallardo production ending last month Lamborghini has revealed their Gallardo replacement, the Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4.

With LED lights everywhere and technology like Iniezione Diretta Stratificata, Lamborghini Doppia Frizione, as well as stop start (guess that would be Lamborghini Inizio Interrompere?) the new Lamborghini Huracan is both more and less than the Gallardo.

Apparently things like carbon footprint and emissions are important buying criteria for Middle Eastern Sheiks, Russian oligarchs and Albanian drug smugglers.  Personally I hope the start stop feature can be disabled.
