Lamborghini's Hexgaon Project was to tease the all new Huracan, and here's the fourth video of the series featuring the Gallardo replacement.
In the film, the two men that were featured in the previous three videos finally get to the room where Lamborghini keeps the Huracán and take it for a spin around the factory.
The Huracán's powertrain is really interesting. It consists of a 5.2-liter V10 engine that produces 602hp (610PS – hence the name LP610) at 8,250 rpm and 560 Nm (413 lb-ft) of torque at 6,500 rpm. The powerplant features the new “Iniezione Diretta Stratificata” (IDS), a technology that combines direct and indirect gasoline injections, resulting in more power and torque with lower fuel consumption and emissions compared with the Gallardo V10 engine.
The Huracán sprints from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.2 seconds and to 200 km/h (124 mph) in 9.9 seconds. Top speed is over 325 km/h (202 mph), while average fuel economy is 12.5 l/100 km (18.8 mpg US), thanks to the Stop & Start technology. The engine is Euro 6-compliant and emits 290 g of CO2 per kilometer.
Technology has come on leaps and bounds over the past few decades, but there is just one that is going to change the face of the earth within the next one, driverless cars. It may still seem like a thing of fantasy and science-fiction now, but within so many big companies pushing what’s possible. There’s Google, Intel, Uber, Volvo, Audi, Tesla and a whole host of other world-dominators. Read more
Just a few years ago, the majority of cars were manuals. Automatic gearboxes were seriously expensive and a luxury only the wealthy could afford. Over time, as with so many other things, prices came down, and automatic cars went mainstream, especially in the US. Today, most people drive an automatic, something that was unthinkable forty years ago, just like it was unthinkable that most people would have airbags. But it happened, nonetheless. Read more
It’s a sad fact that car accidents are very common all around the world, and one of the leading causes of death, even in developed nations. It’s also an unfortunate fact that the large majority of traffic collisions are caused by human error in some way. While most people will stick to road laws and drive carefully, there’s no such thing as a perfect driver. Here are some of the most common causes of car accidents, and how you can avoid them.
