When Lamborghini decided to retire the Gallardo, the exotic carmaker was taking a big risk. The Gallardo was the company’s most popular car by far. In fact, the Gallardo was the best selling Lamborghini model ever selling 14000 units over its life of 11-years. The new replacement car has big shoes to fill.
That Gallardo replacement is the Lamborghini Huracan LP 610-4. The car uses a 5.2L V10 engine that produces 610hp. It can reach a top speed of 325 km/h and race from a stop to 100 km/h in 3.2 seconds. The Huracan is an all-wheel drive car and looks good to boot. It looks like a baby Aventador, which is the high-end Lamborghini car.
Ahead of the Huracan official world debut at the Geneva Motor Show next month, Lamborghini is sending the car on a worldwide tour. The car is being shown to VIP buyers allowing them to get up close with the car and pre-order if they want. So far, 700 of those VIPs have ordered the car. Considering that Lamborghini only sold 2121 cars in 2013 700 pre-orders is a big deal. The worldwide Huracan touch will last until the end of the month.
