The Lamborghini Huracán (Spanish for "hurricane"; [uɾaˈkan]) is a sports car built by Lamborghini, replacing Lamborghini's sales leader and most produced car, the Gallardo. The Huracán made its auto show debut at the March 2014 Geneva Auto Show, and was released in the second quarter of 2014. The name of the Huracan LP 610-4 comes from the fact that this car has 610 horsepower and 4 wheel drive. The Huracán was named "The Supercar of the Year 2014" by car magazine Top Gear.
The Huracán's name (huracán being the Spanish word for hurricane) is inspired by a Spanish fighting bull. The use of names from historical Spanish fighting bulls have been the traditional naming scheme of most Lamborghini car models. Huracán was a bull known for its courage that fought in 1879. Also Huracan is the Mayan god of wind, storm and fire.
Changes from Gallardo included full LED illumination, a 12.3 inch full-colour TFT instrument panel, Fine Nappa leather and Alcantara interior upholstery, redesigned dashboard and central tunnel, Iniezione Diretta Stratificata (IDS, essentially an adapted version of parent Audi's Fuel Stratified Injection) direct and indirect gasoline injections, engine Stop & Start technology, EU6 emissions regulation compliance, Lamborghini Doppia Frizione (LDF) 7-speed dual-clutch transmission with 3 modes (STRADA, SPORT and CORSA), 20 inch wheels, carbon-ceramic brake system, optional Lamborghini Dynamic Steering variable steering system and MagneRide electromagnetic damper control.
The vehicle was unveiled at the March 2014 Geneva Motor Show, and deliveries began in the second quarter of 2014. The Huracán is comparable to the McLaren 650S and the Ferrari 458 Speciale (as well as its successor, the 488 GTB).
The price of the Huracán with extra options added reaches to over US$320,000, or £200,000. The base price for the Huracán in the United States is US$241,945, and around £180,720 in the UK. Extra options that increase the price of the car include interior enhancements, special paint schemes, improved suspension, and a lifting system, as well as multiple components optionally available in carbon fiber, rather than aluminium.  Taiwan models went on sale for NT$15,080,000.
In early 2015, the Huracán appeared on the motoring magazine Top Gear. It got a neutral review from Richard Hammond who said that it was too tame to be a "proper Lamborghini." However, it got around the Top Gear test track in 1:15.8 which is faster than any other Lamborghini to go around the track to date, including the Aventador.
The Huracán LP 610-4 Polizia is the official police car version of the Lamborghini specifically produced for the Italian State Police, after the two Gallardos used by the Polizia Stradale were destroyed in car crashes. This model sports various features not included in the civilian 610-4 Coupe, such as blue Polizia body colour, white stripes and lettering following the Huracán's dynamic design language, a video system positioned in the centre of the cabin with a camera fitted next to the rear view mirror, a computer, recording equipment behind the seats, a Proof Video Data System, gun holster, police radio equipment, a Paletta (the traditional hand-held stop sign used to advise motorists and traffic offenders to pull over), a removable screen, a refrigeration system at the luggage compartment in the front of the vehicle, a defibrillator, and a police beacon with blue LEDs around the base and white LED signals on the front, sides and rear of the light's aluminium shell.
Avio is the first limited edition of Huracán, bringing new colours, upholstery, exterior decals and interior logos inspired by the Air Force and featuring a tricolor cockade in Red, White and Green . On the center console there is a plaque informing of limited number from 250 examples offered.
A convertible variant of the Huracán LP 610-4 was revealed at the Frankfurt Motor Show on 14 September 2015. The 5.2-litre naturally-aspirated V10 engine is the same as seen in the coupé, and it develops 610 PS (449 kW; 602 hp). 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) takes 3.4 seconds and the top speed is 323 km/h (201 mph). UK deliveries will begin in early 2016. It has a 7-speed Lamborghini Doppia Frizione (LDF) dual-clutch transmission. Its CO2 emission is about 280 g/km.
The Huracán LP 580-2 is a lower cost derivative of the Huracán 610-4 that differs mostly in having an engine tuned only to 580 PS and only driving the rear wheels. It has the same 5.2-liter V-10 engine as the 610-4, except tuned to 572 hp (580 PS; 427 kW) and 533 N·m (393 lb·ft). Lamborghini claims it will do 0–100 km/h (0–62 mph) in 3.4 seconds and 0–200 km/h (0–124 mph) in 10.1 seconds. The top speed is claimed to be as high as 320 km/h (199 mph). It also features slight visual differences to the LP610-4 variant of the car - with a different front fascia and a larger air vent at the rear of the car. The seven-speed dual-clutch transmission is the same as used in the 610-4. The base level 580-2 costs US$201,100, about US$40,000 less than the base level 610-4.
A convertible variant of the Huracán LP 580-2 was revealed at Los Angeles on 16 November 2016. The 5.2-litre naturally-aspirated V10 engine is the same as seen in the coupé, and it develops 580 PS (427 kW; 572 hp). 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) takes 3.6 seconds and the top speed is 320 km/h (199 mph).
A performance variant of the Huracán, called the Performante, was leaked in October 2016, taking a hot lap around the Nürburgring Nordschleife track. The car would later be shown in its full production form at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show.
The Huracán Performante appears to have an extensive change in body design. The biggest changes come from the front and rear bumpers. Carbon fibre is used for the bumpers skirts, and the new rear spoiler. The position of the exhausts have changed, just a bit above the rear diffuser. The interior has also changed with a new seat design and a new digital speedometer (similar to that of the Aventador SV's speedometer).
The Performante's 5.2-liter V10 will now put out 631 hp (471 kW; 640 PS) at 8000 rpm and 443 lb·ft (601 N·m) of torque at 6500 rpm. The weight has also decreased by 40 kg (88 lb), thanks to the forged aluminium and forged carbon fibre body (first used in the Sesto Elemento) and hollow parts. There are also forged carbon fibre parts used on the new rear spoiler, front splitter, and rear diffuser, and these all have active individual aerodynamic elements on them to help the car during movement. The vehicle is capable of doing 0-62 mph (0–100 km/h) in 2.9 seconds, 62-124 mph (100–200 km/h) in 6 seconds and with a top speed at limited around 202 mph (325 km/h). And theorical at 218 mph (351 km/h).
The car has been stiffened by 10% with new springs, roll bars, and radial & axial arm brushings. The magneto-rheological suspension has been reworked to give a driver a serious track experience. The Lamborghini Dynamic Steering has been re-calibrated. The Huracán now also has Lamborghini's new ALA (Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva) system, which is said to be 80% lighter than regular sports car hydraulic systems. According to Lamborghini, ALA is also said to provide 750% more downforce than the regular Huracán. The price of the car is set at US$274,390.
In October 2016, the Performante set a lap time of 6:52.01 on the Nürburgring Nordschliefe, with Marco Mapelli behind the wheel, making it the world's fastest production car around the track. This lap was also made on Marco Mapelli's first attempt. However, some critics have stated complaints around the car's lap time, from the official video being sped up to make the lap believable, to the speeds displayed in the video being false or that it did not use road tires. However, Lamborghini was able to prove that the lap the Performante did was fully legitimate exactly a week after the lap around the Nordschliefe when they revealed the data to car website, Road & Track. Máté Petrany of R&T had met with lead engineer of Lamborghini, Maurizio Reggiani, to ask about the lap. It was then revealed by Reggiani that the Performante's active aerodynamic system called Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva is what gives the car the greatest improvement in lap time. It is said by Lamborghini that on ALA's most aggressive setting, 750% more downforce is created compared to the standard LP 610-4. What is more important is the spoilers snapping into their lowest-drag setting when the Performante is aimed forward, which results in the removal of acceleration impediment that big aero causes.
The Huracán maintains the 5.2 L naturally aspirated Audi/Lamborghini V10 engine from the Gallardo, tuned for 610 PS (449 kW; 602 hp). To ensure its balance and performance, the car is mid-engined. The V10 has both direct fuel injection and multi-point fuel injection. It combines the benefits of both of these systems; it is the first time this combination is used in a V10. To increase its efficiency the Huracán's engine also includes a start-stop system.

The Huracán has electronically controlled all-wheel drive, which aims to increase the traction on various surfaces and the overall performance of the car. The car has a 7-speed dual clutch transmission, Lamborghini's new 'Doppia Frizione' (Dual Clutch) gearbox. The transmission performs differently depending on the mode the driver has selected. The Huracán will only be available with an automatic transmission; a manual will not be offered.
The Huracán features various interior options for more comfort inside the car. It features a choice for full electric control and heating of the sport seats in addition to the standard lengthwise alignment and electric backrest. The car also has an optional navigation system and leather upholstering. The Huracán is one of the first sports cars moving infotainment out of the center stack: Lamborghini Infotainment System. The result: a display that lets the driver decide what they want to see. It is the first vehicle to use the 12.3 inch TFT virtual cockpit from parent company Audi, which is available with high-definition (1440 x 540) 3D computer graphics, Bluetooth, Google Earth GPS navigation and Multi Media Interface-like menu and dashboard controls, all powered by Nvidia Tegra 3.
Various aspects of the Huracán are technologically advanced. The car has full LED headlamps, which ensures higher contrast in night conditions. Also, the Huracán has optional "Lamborghini Dynamic Steering" (LDS) to add to the standard power steering. The Dynamic Steering changes the steering performance from normal, comfortable steering to a racing feeling. The main control for changing the car's performance according to driving conditions is the mode selector ANIMA (Adaptive Network Intelligent Management). ANIMA controls the engine, the transmission, LDS, the all-wheel drive, magnetorheological suspension, and the electronic stability control. The Lamborghini Piattaforma Inerziale (LPI) carries out precise measurements of the vehicle movements using on board sensors (3 accelerometers and 3 gyroscopes) linked to ANIMA via high-speed FlexRay CAN bus. The driver can select street, sport, or race mode to alter how systems like the engine or transmission respond while driving. Depending on what mode is selected, even engine sound is different.
The Huracán's chassis is assembled by Lamborghini's parent company Audi in Neckarsulm, Germany. It is transported to the Lamborghini headquarters in Sant'Agata Bolognese, Italy, where the final assembly occurs.
Within the first month of the Huracán LP 610-4 preview period, 700 orders of the vehicle were obtained. Before the official launch, Lamborghini registered more than 1,000 orders of the Huracán LP 610-4.

The Huracán LP 610-4 Coupé (in Midas yellow body colour) appeared in Forza Horizon 2 as the "hero car", where the car was featured in the box art cover for both the Xbox One and Xbox 360 editions of the game.
At PAX East 2016, the Blizzard game "Overwatch" collaborated with Uber to perform "Uberwatch", which took event goers and VIP's on short rides through the area surrounding the BCEC, in cars themed after as well as driven by stunt performers cosplaying as various characters from the game. Huracáns and Aventadors were wrapped in liveries themed after the character "Tracer", with 3 cars (two Huracans and one Aventador) being driven on the street, while the remaining Aventador was on display inside the convention.
The Lamborghini Huracán GT3, developed in collaboration with Dallara, features a V10 5.2L gasoline engine and has a weight of 1230 kg. It began to compete in 2015. Team Lazarus won the 2016 International GT Open with drivers Thomas Biagi and Fabrizio Crestani. Also, Barwell Motorsport claimed four wins in the 2016 British GT Championship, Grasser Racing Team won a race at the 2016 ADAC GT Masters, and Paul Miller Racing got a win at the 2016 WeatherTech SportsCar Championship.
