Lamborghini Huracan racks up 700 orders ahead of a Geneva debutThu, 13 Feb 2014
The new Lamborghini Huracan (pictured) secures 700 orders before a public debut
The new Lamborghini Huracan – the long-awaited replacement for the Lamborghini Gallardo – was revealed just before Christmas and has been doing a tour of private reveals to Lamborghini faithful around the world. Those private presentations look like they’ve been quite a success, with Lamborghini reporting 700 secured orders for the Huracan already – half the average annual orders of the Gallardo in just a month – before it’s even been publicly revealed.
With styling that owes more than a passing nod to the Aventador, 602bhp from its 5.2 litre V10 and 4WD, the Huracan is an appealing mid-engined supercar from Lamborghini, especially has Lamborghini seem to have worked hard to increase the quality of construction and materials used.
At a price expected to be around £175,000, the Lamborghini Huracan is taking on the McLaren 12C and the Ferrari 458, but its dramatic styling, V10 engine and 4WD obviously offer appeal in some areas the competition don’t offer.
It does seem likely the Lamborghini Huracan will exceed even the sales record of the Gallardo, which would make the Huracan the most successful car in Lamborghini’s history.
