A brand new Lamborghini Huracan has been crashed recently in the Targa New Zealand Rally.
If you though that it is almost impossible to see another Lamborghini Huracan crash this year, think again, because another version of the model has been ruined recently, during the Targa Rally, in New Zealand. According to the local automotive media, the Italian supercar in question was being driven by Tony Quinn, a 5-time event winner, who lost control of the wheel at about 200 km/h (124 mph). The good news is that Quinn, together with his co-driver, Naomi Tilett, escaped uninjured, the bad news is that the Huracan didn’t. However, the supercar is fixable.
The Lamborghini Huracan has been officially presented to the public for the first time just earlier this year, during the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. This is coming as the official replacement of the Gallardo and it has a 5.2 liter V10 engine under its hood, the same one from its predecessor, which has been upgraded. The unit is now capable of producing no less than 602 HP (449 kW) and it has a peak torque of 560 Nm (413 lb-ft), which is enough to allow it to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.2 seconds and to reach a top speed of 325 km/h (202 mph).
