SANT'AGATA BOLOGNESE, Italy — The 2014 Lamborghini Huracan LP 610-4, the highly anticipated replacement for the Lamborghini Gallardo, was revealed ahead of a debut at the 2014 Geneva Auto Show.
The Huracan's 610-horsepower 5.2-liter V10 is linked to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and will launch the supercar from zero to 62 mph in 3.2 seconds. The Huracan has a top speed of 201 mph.
The engine, which features direct injection and stop-start technology, is an improvement over the Gallardo's V10. Lamborghini said the new engine has more power and torque with lower fuel consumption and emissions.
The 2014 Lamborghini Gallardo coupe with a six-speed manual transmission returns 12 mpg in city driving and 20 mpg on the highway, according to the EPA. The EPA has not announced fuel economy numbers for the Huracan.
Named for a famous fighting bull that fought in Spain in 1879, the Huracan will go on sale in the spring. Pricing has not been announced.
Lamborghini said the Gallardo successor "has been developed from scratch down to the very last detail, and, like the Gallardo and most other Lamborghini models, derives its name from the world of bullfighting."
It is named for the fighting bull Huracan known for "his outstanding courage and strong sense of attack."
The styling of the Huracan does not deviate dramatically from the Gallardo. The chassis uses carbon fiber and aluminum to cut weight.
Exterior cues include side windows that "come together to create a hexagonal form inserted like a glass jewel in the car's profile," the automaker said. The cabin gets a 12.3-inch color instrument panel that can be configured in different setups.
The Huracan will be previewed in more than 130 private events for "qualified prospects" in 60 cities throughout the world.
