To be brutally honest, learning about a car’s technical details is the most mind-numbingly boring part of our job as motoring reporters. But Lamborghini has found a way to make this exciting, using awesome animation and superb music. We wish all press releases were like this!
If you are not distracted by the music and visual effects, in this clip you will learn about the technical details of the Lamborghini Huracan such as its aluminum and carbon fiber construction, advanced steering system, aluminum axles, and of course its magnificent V10 engine.
And in case you need a recap, here are the headlines of Lamborghini Huracan technology features:
The newly conceived hybrid chassis of car unites carbon-fiber and aluminum components, resulting in low dry weight of 1,422 kilograms. The new V10 engine in the Huracan generates 448 kW / 610 hp at 8,250 rpm and a maximum torque of 560 Nm at 6,500 rpm. The new “Iniezione Diretta Stratificata” combines direct and indirect injection – achieving an increase in power and torque compared with the Gallardo and a decrease in fuel consumption and emissions. The power generated by the ten-cylinder is delivered to the road via the new 7-speed dual-clutch transmission “Lamborghini Doppia Frizione” (LDF) and an all-wheel drive.
With its power-to-weight ratio of just 2.33 kilograms per hp, the Lamborghini Huracan achieves absolutely breathtaking performance. The top speed of more than 325 km/h and the acceleration figures – zero to 100 km/h in 3.2 seconds, zero to 200 km/h in 9.9 seconds – offer an indication of its dynamics. Thanks in part to the Stop & Start technology, ECE average fuel consumption has dropped to 12.5 liters per 100 km (290 g CO2 per km).
