The new 2017 Lamborghini Huracan is more than just an Audi R8, it is its own carbon-fiber animal. Some of the highlights that make the Huracan stand tall among the rest include fantastic noises, exotic styling, a sophisticated all-wheel-drive system, and a powerful output that offers it’s a ferocious acceleration. The Lamborghini Huracan release date should be expected sometime in mid-2017 probably as a 2018 year model.
For starters, the Lamborghini Huracan is a combination of what you’d call clever engineering, design sophistication, reliability, and capability. And just like president Obama dropping the mic after the White Correspondents’ Dinner, hands down, the newest 2017 Lamborghini Huracan is the ultimate expression of beauty and elegance, sophistication and performance, and overall refinement.
It’s heavily related to the Audi R8, no doubt, but it offers lots of unique features of its own. Its construction is basically an aluminum space frame with carbon fiber structures making up the bulkhead and central spine. The exterior has received modest changes relative to the existing model as the vehicle is still remarkable and still will even for several light years to come. The Lamborghini Huracan interior is something to write home about as always. The functionality and design is impeccable. It comes with several technological updates that are meant to keep it in tandem with modern times.
Performance remains unaltered for the new model and therefore we should expect the same track attitude from both the Lamborghini Huracan 2017 LP 610-4 Spyder and the LP 580-2 models. The Huracan LP 580-2 should be expected to come with the 5.2L V10 engine responsible of putting out an impressive 580 horsepower @8,000 rpm and 398 pounds-ft. of torque @6,500 rpm. The Huracan LP 610-4 Spyder, on the hand, should be expected to come with a tweaked version of the same engine but rated at 610 horsepower @ 8,250 rpm and 412 pounds-feet of torque @ 6,500 rpm.
Exterior Lamborghini Huracan colors: Grigio Nimbus Metallic, Bianco Monocerus, Nero Noctis, Marrone Alcestis Ad Personam Metallic, Giallo Horus Matte, Nero Nemesis Matte, Blue Caleum Ad Personam Metallic, Marrone Apus Matte, Verde Mantis, Rosso Mars Metallic, Giallo Inti Pearl Effect, Bianco Icarus Metallic, and Grigio Lynx Metallic. Of course, slight changes can be expected on its release date.
2017 Lamborghini Huracan Review of Trims
Two trims are offered for the 2017 Lamborghini Huracan: LP610-4 Spyder and the LP580-2. The Huracan LP 580-2 is a two door coupe that gets its power distributed to the rear wheels. Pundits argue that in the same way the Superveloce version brought adjustability and incisiveness to the Aventador, so has the LP 580-2 brought new levels of involvement to the Huracan.
The 2017 Lamborghini Huracan LP 610-4 Spyder, on the other hand, is a four wheel drive derivative. It is identical to the coupe from the waist down and the only differences seem to emanate from the rear haunches, engine lid, and the soft-top. Another highlight that sets the LP 610-4 apart is its new soft-top that was given utmost attention by its designers.
