Detailed Review

The Italian speedster Lamborghini Huracan is raging and burning the roads of USA since 2014. For Lamborghini, the Huracan is the successor of Gallardo and is performing well up to the company's expectations. The 2017 model of the Huracan has its place in the first generation of the Huracan line-up and offers a new rear-wheel drivetrain configuration.

Supplying the power to the blazing beast is a 5.2 L V10 engine, which produces either 580 hp or 610hp of power depending upon its tuning. The powerful engine is mated to a 7-speed automated manual transmission system to bring the best out of the Huracan.  

From years, Audi has been giving a hard time to Lamborghini's supercars with its most successful R8. If we look closely, the Audi R8 is actually based on the Lamborghini Gallardo platform. Apart from R8, the Huracan also have to compete with the British-made McLaren 570S.

Key Features

  • The "entry-level" rear-wheel-drive coupe variant (hence the "-2" in the model name) that's also offered as a convertible (i.e., the Spyder). It's the leanest and sharpest variant currently available. Here, the V10 engine produces 571 horsepower and 398 pound-feet of torque. Steel brakes and 19-inch wheels are standard
  • Lamborghini makes the V10 a bit more powerful with all-wheel drive, and here it cranks out 602 hp and 413 lb-ft of torque. Carbon-ceramic brakes and 20-inch wheels are part of the deal
  •  has unique aircraft-inspired cabin and exterior treatments and comes with a smattering of would-be options as standard. Only 250 will be made, making this model the choice of collectors only.

The Huracan LP 580-2 is the only trim to have an RWD drivetrain. Some of the key highlights of the LP 580-2 include steel brakes and 19-inch wheels. Coming to the LP 610 variant, it employs the same V10 engine present in the base trim but the engine is tuned differently to produce extra power and torque. Carbon ceramic brakes along with 20-inch wheels come as standard in the LP 610. The most expensive Huracan trim, LP 610-4 Avio is different from the 610 in the way that it gets an aircraft-inspired cockpit and LP 610’s optional features as standard.
