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.
