Lamborghini recently presented its expanded Huracán model range at the 14th Beijing International Motorshow. Three models made their debut in China. The Lamborghini Huracán LP 580-2 is the two-wheel drive version of the V10 coupé. Specifically designed and engineered for its rear-wheel drive set-up, the Huracán LP 580-2 combines new looks with an enhanced Lamborghini driving experience package.

Alongside the two-wheel drive version, Lamborghini is showing the Huracán LP 610-4 Avio: produced in a run of only 250, this special edition’s name, colors and materials pay tribute to the world of aviation and aeronautics.

Also displayed is the open top version of the Huracán LP 610-4, or Spyder, which combines the power and performance of the coupé with an open-air driving experience.

The Huracán LP 610-4 made 2015 the most successful year in history for deliveries of V10-engined Lamborghini models. In its first full year on the market, a total of 2,242 Huracán units were delivered to customers. In the first 18 months following its market introduction, Huracán deliveries were 70% higher than those of its predecessor, the Gallardo, in the same period after market introduction.

The Huracán LP 580-2 has been engineered and tuned for an essential driving experience: its naturally aspirated V10 5.2L engine sends 580 hp to the rear axle.

The Huracán LP 610-4 Avio has an aspirated 610 hp, 5.2L V10 engine; 7-speed gearbox with double clutch; hybrid chassis in aluminum and carbon fiber; and breathtaking performance: 0 to 62 mph in a mere 3.2 seconds and a maximum speed of more than 201 mph.

Driven by the same V10 engine, the Huracán LP 610-4 Spyder accelerates from 0 to 62 mph in 3.4 seconds, with a top speed of 201 mph.

The most distinctive feature of the Huracán Spyder is its new soft top. The roof is available in three different colors: black, brown and red. Even with the roof up, the lines of the Spyder differ significantly from those of the coupé. The new hidden automatic pop-up safety bars do not spoil the open car’s low silhouette.

The new electrohydraulic, lightweight soft top opens via a button positioned on the central tunnel in just 17 seconds up to a driving speed of 31 mph. Whether the soft top is up or down, the driver can also electronically open the rear window, which functions as a windshield when closed and when open, as an amplifier of the unique engine sound of the naturally aspirated V10.

All the Huracán models include new 2016 model year technical features including ‘cylinder on demand’ in combination with ‘stop start’, and a new electronically controlled all-wheel drive set-up for further improved driving behavior.
