Orders for the newest Italian supercar, the Lamborghini Huracan, have just reached 1,500, as Gallardo’s replacement becomes more popular.
A couple of months ago, Lamborghini has announced that the newly unveiled Huracan has received 700 orders and now, with the Beijing Motor Show still taking place as we speak, the company has admitted that orders for its newest model have more than doubled. According to the company’s officials, the Lamborghini Huracan orders have just reached the 1,500-unit mark and the supercar seems to become more popular with each passing day.
As you may recall, the Lamborghini Huracan has been officially unveiled a few months ago. This is the successor of the Gallardo and it has received an evolutionary design which some say that is too conservative for a Lamborghini. The Huracan resembles its larger brother, the Aventador, in some parts, but this is still a brand new supercar, riding on a brand new platform, which will eventually be shared with the upcoming generation of the Audi R8. Power is being provided by a 5.2 liter V10 engine, which has been updated and it’s now good for 610 HP (448 kW) and 560 Nm (413 lb-ft) of torque. The unit is mated to a seven-speed dual clutch transmission, which is sending power to the AWD. The 0 to 100 km/h acceleration takes 3.2 seconds and top speed stands at 325 km/h (202 mph).
