Lamborghini first released the Huracan in 2014 to replace the highly successful Gallardo, using the same Audi AG V10 engine. Coupled with direct fuel injection from the Gallardo the Huracan used a multi-point fuel injection system, improving efficiency even further along with more power. The electrohydraulic gearbox that could be optioned with the Gallardo was ditched for a quicker dual-clutch transmission, the first fitted to a Lamborghini, helping the LP-610-4 achieve a 0-62mph time of 3.2 seconds. Like many Lamborghini models before it the name Huracan was inspired by a famous Spanish fighting bull, it also literally means ‘hurricane’ in Spanish.
Initially the Huracan was born with 610hp and an electronically controlled 4-wheel drive system, with the Huracan Spyder being released 2 years later. Lamborghini went on to produce several different variations of the model, including the LP580-2 which was a rear-wheel drive version with a slightly detuned engine. This was deemed to be a more ‘affordable’ entry level spec for the brand, but equally appealed hugely to driving purists with its rear wheel drive excitement seldom seen from modern day Lamborghinis.
Lamborghini’s higher spec track-oriented model was introduced in 2017, the Performante, with the Spyder released in 2018. This offered forged carbon fibre aerodynamic components on the exterior in conjunction with their ALA (Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva) system, which activates electrically controlled flaps to stall the front and rear spoilers reducing drag or adding downforce when necessary. Another major change was the placement of the exhaust system, the quad exit tailpipes replaced with a larger dual exit exhaust tips mounted higher up the rear bumper above the license plate area. The interior was now more track focused than ever with racing seats and a race display speedometer similar to that seen in the Aventador SV. Power had also been increased and coupled with the weight reductions due to the forged carbon and increased use of aluminium, gave the Performamte serious track capability claiming the Nuburgring production car lap record in 2016.
In 2019 Lamborghini released an updated version named the Huracan EVO and EVO Spyder. The EVO shares similar styling and technologies with the Performante, slotting in between the earlier standard model and the performance orientated Performante. Lamborghini incorporated a 4-wheel steering system into the Huracan EVO and an engine power increase to 640hp. The exterior redesign features an exhaust system emulating the Perfomante, with more aggressive bumpers and a ducktail spoiler that increases downforce over the standard model by 5 times. Following on from the popularity of the LP580-2, 2020 brings the Huracan EVO RWD. Changes come in the way airflow is directed around the body and a new traction control system that ensures torque is more smoothly dialled down when necessary.
The Lamborghini Huracan offers a diverse range of choice for any buyer and is set to be a firm favourite for years to come, following the in the footsteps of the Gallardo.
