Lamborghini Huracan has received 700 orders in a month, public debut next month

Lamborghini Huracan made its online debut before Christmas and has already obtained 700 orders during a, as yet unfinished, month-long private preview tour worldwide for VIP clients.

Not a bad start for the heir to the best selling Lamborghini to date, the Gallardo.

As a reminder the Gallardo was in production for 10 years and during that time a total of 14,022 units were built, making it the most successful model in company’s history.

The Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4 is powered by a 602bhp 5.2-litre normally-aspirated V10 engine linked to a 7-speed dual clutch transmission, taking the new bull from 0-62mph in 3.2 seconds on to a top speed of 202mph.

The name Huracan is derived from the world of bullfighting like most Lamborghini cars and the new model was developed from scratch and thanks to extensive use of carbon fibre, aluminium and new hybrid chassis has a dry weight of 1,422kg.

The Huracan will make its public debut next month in Geneva.
