To help with balance and performance, the engine is set smack bang in the middle. The new Huracan’s V10 has the direct fuel injection and also the multi-point fuel injection. It has the power to combine both of these systems to increase efficiently. And it also has the ever-popular start-stop system.
The new Lamborghini Huracan can reach speeds of 202mph(325km/h).And it has the blistering power to accelerate from 0-62mph(100km/h) in just 3.2 seconds and from 0-124mph(200km/h) in an impressive 9.9 seconds. The Huracan has a weight of 1,422kg, which represents a power to weight ratio of 2.33kg per horsepower. This model has the new Lamborghini magnetically controlled suspension system, which utilises magneto rheological fluid to quickly change how the suspension acts. This ensures performance and usability. The Huracan shares various components with the yet to be released latest generation Audi R8 allowing both cars to benefit from the Volkswagen group’s sports car technology.
The new Huracan’s interior has various personalised options for more comfort inside the car. It features a huge choice for full electric control and heating of the sports seats in addition to the normal lengthwise alignment and electric backrest. If you need satellite navigation you’ll have to reach into your pocket as it is an optional extra.
There are many aspects of the new Huracan that are technologically advanced. The car benefits from full LED lighting, which creates higher contrast at night. It also has the optional ‘’Lamborghini Dynamic Steering’’ to add to the standard power steering.
