Official Lamborghini Huracan Configurator Launched

Just a few days after the incredible 2015 Lamborghini Huracan LP610-4 was launched, LamboCARS came out with this online configurator. Featuring all the colour options and unique styling details you could ever wish for, whenever Lamborghini launched the official configurator for the car, we knew it’d have a hard time matching it.
The Lamborghini Huracan is the official replacement of the Gallardo. The model in question has been officially unveiled just a couple of weeks ago and it hasn’t been tested by the automotive media just yet. The supercar is getting an updated 5.2 liter V10 engine under its hood, which is producing 610 HP (448 kW) and 560 Nm (413 lb-ft) of torque. The 0 to 100 km/h acceleration is made in 3.2 seconds and top speed achieved is 325 km/h (202 mph).
Like its Gallardo predecessor, the Huracan wields a 5.2-litre, naturally aspirated V10, driving all four wheels. The standard transmission is a new seven-speed dual-clutcher, marshalling 601bhp and 413lb ft. Yes, we’re saying good riddance to the clunky E-gear auto, but also a fond farewell to the open-gate manual option with three pedals in the footwell.
The V10 creates 41bhp and 15lb ft more than the most potent Gallardo’s engine did. It’s enough to fire the Huracan to 62mph in a claimed 3.2sec (0.2sec faster than a 458, but 0.1sec slower than a 12C). The top speed is a claimed 202mph – matching a 458’s v-max, but a handful of mph slower than a McLaren 12C.
The Lamborghini Huracan is set to shake the supercar industry when the car begins deliveries. The Gallardo was a very successful car that fought with the Ferrari F430, Audi R8 and Porsche 911 models but began to show its age when the Ferrari 458 and McLaren 12C shifted the bar to a level the Gallardo could not reach.
As a reminder the Lamborghini Huracán receives a new 5.2-liter V10 engine uprated and heavily updated from the engine of Gallardo’s. It produces a total of 610 PS, or 602 hp at 8,250 rpm and 560 Nm of torque at a high 6,500 rpm. Consequently, the brand new Huracán can sprint from a standstill to 100 km/h in just 3.2 seconds, from 0-200 km/h in just 9.9 seconds and a top speed in excess of 325 km/h

Lambo will likely announce at the Geneva International Motor Show in March, when it plans to debut the car. The Huracán is scheduled to reach customers this spring as a 2015 model.
It's still a bit of a gas-guzzler, returning around 22 mpg. But stop-and-start technology has brought CO2 emissions down to around 290 g/km.
The model is being built at Lamborghini's HQ in Sant'Agata Bolognese, Northern Italy, on a revamped production line.
We've got an edited version of the clip above that shows the best bits as the men go all Grand Theft Auto in the carpark and in between the unwanted background music, there is some superb engine noise from the Huracan's 610-horsepower V10.
