Having received an immediate success since it was unveiled at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, the highly anticipated Lamborghini Hurac·n LP610-4, successor to the Gallardo is finally revealed to Singapore. The ceremony was held at Clifford Pier in the presence of Mr Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini, who unveiled and presented the Hurac·n for the first time in the country.
The Hurac·n first made its appearance in Singapore in January this year through a series of private viewings for existing Lamborghini owners and selected guests. Subsequently, the official world debut took place during the 2014 Geneva Motor Show in March. With its pure design, breathtaking dynamics and excellent quality, the Hurac·n deliver an unparalleled sports car experience. It unites mighty performance with a character perfectly suited to everyday use; it features a 5.2 l V10 engine with 610 HP, reaches a top speed of over 325 km/h, and accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 3,2 seconds.
With the Hurac·n LP 610-4, Lamborghini is taking its purist, unmistakable design language to a whole new evolutionary level. The design is bold and edgy, with beautifully sculptural forms. The starting point of the design process was the Hurac·nís silhouette. The objective was to define the car with a single line stretching from the front end over the passenger cell to the rear. The side windows take on a hexagonal form that looks like a gem set in the profile of the Hurac·n. At night, too, it is utterly unmistakable: All lights, including the main headlamps, beam in LED technology ñ an absolute first in the super sports car segment.
An innovative cockpit dominates the interior. The 12.3-inch TFT display can be configured in a number of different modes and provides the driver with all key information in a virtual format. The slender lines of the instrument mounts and the center tunnel is indicative of the lightness of the interior design. Fine materials distinguish the interior, which can be extensively individualized, while the extremely detailed craftsmanship delivers a highly refined sense of quality.
The newly conceived hybrid chassis of the Hurac·n LP 610-4 is a technical work of art that unites carbon-fiber and aluminum components. The ultra- light chassis forms the basis of the vehicleís low dry weight of 1,422 kilograms; with its excellent stiffness, it guarantees the handling precision of a racing car.
The new V10 engine in the Hurac·n generates its phenomenal propulsion from a displacement of 5.2 liters. It produces a power output of 448 kW / 610 HP at 8,250 RPM and a maximum torque of 560 NM at 6,500 RPM. The new ìIniezione Diretta Stratificataî combines direct and indirect injection ñachieving an increase in power and torque compared with the Gallardo and a decrease in fuel consumption and emissions.
With its power-to-weight ratio of just 2.33 kilograms per HP, the Lamborghini Hurac·n achieves absolutely breathtaking performance. The top speed of more than 325 km/h and the acceleration figures ñ zero to 100 km/h in 3.2 seconds, zero to 200 km/h in 9.9 seconds ñ offer an indication of its dynamics. Thanks in part to the Stop & Start technology, ECE average fuel consumption has dropped to 12.5 liters per 100 km (290 g CO2 per km).
The power generated by the ten-cylinder is delivered to the road via the new 7-speed dual-clutch transmission ìLamborghini Doppia Frizioneî (LDF) and an all-wheel drive that also features a new hydraulic multi-plate clutch. Three different driving modes, spanning from road to race track, can be selected using a drive select switch in the steering wheel. The system is called ANIMA (Italian for Soul) ñ ìAdaptive Network Intelligent Managementî, and impacts the engine, the transmission, the all-wheel drive and the ESC handling system as well as other dynamic systems.
The wheels of the Lamborghini Hurac·n measure 20 inches in diameter, with the standard-fit carbon-ceramic brake system delivering exceptional stopping power. As an option, Lamborghini offers its new luxury super sports car with the Lamborghini Dynamic Steering, variable steering system and MagneRide electromagnetic damper control. Both of these features are also integrated into ANIMA.
