The 600bhp V10-engined Huracán goes on sale in the UK in Autumn next year. See new pictures of the latest Lamborghini in our exclusive studio shoot.
2 January 2014

The Lamborghini Huracán will come to the UK in autumn next year following a debut at the Geneva motor show in March.

The 600bhp V10-engined supercar is the spiritual successor to the Lamborghini Gallardo and takes its name from the legendary fighting bulls of Spain. While the car will be available in four-wheel-drive guise only at launch, a rear-wheel-drive version will go on sale in 2015. A Spyder version is also in the works.

Lamborghini designers have placed a particular emphasis on providing an impression of width, as seen in the added flare of the wheel arches, more defined shoulder line down the flanks and large cooling ducts towards the rear. The distinctive internal LED headlight and tail-light graphics are borrowed from the Aventador.

Previously tipped to be called Cabrera, the model has been spotted testing in various guises in the run up to its launch. The Huracán is intended to lead a new supercar revival from Lamborghini with the Italian firm fighting in the fiercly-competitive supercar sector with more power and performance, new underpinnings and a new high-quality interior.

The Huracán joins the more powerful Aventador in what is described as the youngest Lamborghini line-up since the manufacturer's future was secured following its purchase by Audi in 1998.

The Huracán will face competition from the likes of the McLaren 12C, the Ferrari 458 and latterly the new Audi R8, with which the new Lamborghini shares its underpinnings. Does the Huracán have what it takes to take the supercar crown? To find out, click through our exclusive studio gallery above.

While it's definitely a stunning car, this press car is completely the wrong colour for a Lambo, (especially that yellow interior!) Great scoop for Autocar getting the first studio pics - probably worth releasing in a screensaver format.

The interior shots make me wonder where the Sat Nav is going? hopefully not inside the speedo like the 458?

When the Huracan featured in Autocar last week Matt Saunders' summary was more or less slating the car off before they've even driven it. And one of the damning comments was the use of a N/A engine and its torque characteristics, which I suspect was made to try and praise the turbo engine in the MP4-12C. He seemed to forget the 458's engine is also N/A but is even more highly strung than the Lambo's!

I'd treat Saunders comments with the contempt they deserve.
This is just typical of the pathetic journalistic standards Autocar has fallen to.
They simply do not get the point that they are there to inform, not push their personal opinions which are not worth a damn.

I am a great admirer of McLaren, but the MP4 12C just looks a mess from every angle.
The Huracan seems to have got everything right. Modern clean design with just a touch of detail retro from the 60's.(Muira, Marzal)!

    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again

    Off-road estate is now bigger, more spacious and available with torque-vectoring all-wheel drive, but is it enough to make its German rivals anxious?
