When Gallardo stepped down last year, the choice of a worthy successor came down to the Huracan, although the 2016 model still needs some variations in order to truly qualify. There is nothing like some stiff competition to move things along, and luckily (for us), Lamborghini is no exception. Whereas they could afford to take their time with the Gallardo, things are far more serious nowadays, so the development is faster than ever.
2016 Lamborghini Huracan Release Date
The 2016 Lamborghini Huracan is expected to hit the market this spring, so make sure to get your hopes up…
Price for 2016 Lamborghini Huracan
Even though the launch is a few short months away, Lamborghini is still reluctant to disclose the exact price.
To be fair, the actual price of an individual model will depend on a lot of things and it is seriously doubtful that two of these will fetch the exact same price. Having said that, the base model should go for $250,000 plus additional expenses.
Exterior of Lamborghini Huracan
The 2016 Lamborghini Huracan is going to feature many familiar elements from its predecessor, including the full LED illumination and the overall body appearance. Needless to say, the body is lighter and more aerodynamic than ever, although the real goodies are on the inside.
All that aluminum and carbon fibers have done their end of the job splendidly, as the new chassis is roughly 40% stronger than it used to be. And the numbers get more impressive as we go: 50% plus downforce, more than 200 lbs in lost weight and superior handling that refuses to be quantified.
The lid on the hood has been updated and it now features a pair of buttresses and vents, which add more to the practicality than they ever will to the aesthetics.
Lamborghini Huracan Interior
The 2016 Lamborghini Huracan offers lots of indoor space, as well as numerous goodies carried over from the earlier models.
The redesigned dashboard and the central console are only the tip of the iceberg. For any information, there is the 12.3-inch TFT display that should cover any infotainment or navigation needs.
The Nappa leather is of the highest quality, of course, and Alcantara is also an option, so it is down to personal preferences, which go beyond the choice of upholstery.
The cherry on top is the Lamborghini signature Dynamic Steering variable system in combination with MagneRide damper control, which makes driving a smooth and relaxing experience – something any sensible driver would consider a worthy investment.
Lamborghini Huracan 2016 Engine
The hood of the 2016 Lamborghini Huracan is hiding a monster: the 5.2 L V-10, capable of producing 620 hp and 413 lb-ft of torque.
It features an LDF 7-speed dual clutch transmission as well as the all-wheel drive configuration. The three driving modes being offered are Strada, Sport and Corsa; each of those will affect performance and experience in a meaningful way.
The 2016 Huracan can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in under 3.4 seconds, reaching 124 mph 6.8 seconds later and topping it off at 201 mph. The 19 miles per gallon makes for an impressive fuel efficiency, for its class.
