The Lamborghini Huracán (Spanish for "hurricane"; [uɾaˈkan]) is a sports car built by Italian automotive manufacturer Lamborghini replacing the previous V10 flagship, the Gallardo. The Huracán made its worldwide debut at the 2014 Geneva Auto Show, and was released in the second quarter of 2014. The LP 610-4 designation comes from the fact that this car has 610 metric horsepower and 4 wheel drive, while LP stands for "Longitudinale Posteriore", which refers to the longitudinal mid-rear engine position. The Huracán was named "The Supercar of the Year 2014" by automotive magazine Top Gear.
The Huracán's name (huracán being the Spanish word for hurricane) is inspired by a Spanish fighting bull. Names from historical Spanish fighting bulls has 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 price of the Huracán with extra options added reaches to over US$320,000, or £200,000. The base price for the Huracán amounts to US$241,945, and around £180,720. 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.
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 the course of patrol duty. This model sports various features specifically made for the car, 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 police 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 (for use in the vehicle's role in transporting organs for transplantation), 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.
Unveiled at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, the Avio is the first limited edition of Huracán, bringing new colours, upholstery, exterior decals and interior logos inspired by fighter jets and featuring a tricolore cockade in Red, White and Green. On the centre console there is a plaque indicating the limited number from 250 examples offered.
Lamborghini produced a tailor made Huracán LP 580-2 and donated it to Pope Francis before the general audience in the presence of the top management of the company. The exclusive and personalized car, signed by the Pontiff, will be auctioned out by Sotheby's and the proceeds will be delivered directly to the Holy See which will allocate the charitable sum for the reconstruction of the Nineveh Plain through the Foundation of Papal Law "Aiuto alla Chiesa che Soffre".
The 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). It has the same 7-speed Lamborghini Doppia Frizione (LDF) dual-clutch transmission as that of the coupé. The Spyder has a dry weight of 1,542 kg (3,400 lb) which is 120 kg (265 lb) more than the coupé due to chassis reinforcing components. The Spyder has a CO2 emission of about 280 g/km.
Unveiled at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, the Huracán LP 580-2 is a lower cost derivative of the Huracán LP 610-4 that differs mostly in having the 5.2 L V10 engine detuned to 580 PS (572 hp; 427 kW) and 393 lb⋅ft (533 N⋅m) along with having a rear wheel drive drivetrain instead of the all-wheel drive drivetrain found in the standard Huracán. Lamborghini claims the car will accelerate from 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 standard variant of the car - with a different front fascia and larger air vents at the rear of the car. The seven-speed dual-clutch transmission is the same as used in the LP 610-4. The base level LP 580-2 costs US$201,100, about US$40,000 less than the base level LP 610-4.
A convertible variant of the Huracán LP 580-2 was revealed at the Los Angeles Auto Show 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 62 mph (100 km/h) takes 3.6 seconds and the top speed is 199 mph (320 km/h).
The Huracán Performante underwent various exterior changes with the most noticeable being the front and rear bumpers. Carbon fibre is used for the bumpers and the side skirts. An adjustable carbon fibre rear wing has been added to increase downforce. The position of the exhaust has also been changed, and is now just a bit above the rear diffuser. The interior has also underwent changes, now sporting new seats and a new digital speedometer (similar to that of the Aventador SV's speedometer).
The Performante's 5.2-liter V10 has been tuned to produce 631 hp (471 kW; 640 PS) at 8,000 rpm and 443 lb⋅ft (601 N⋅m) of torque at 6,500 rpm. The weight has also decreased by 40 kg (88 lb), thanks to the forged aluminium and forged carbon fibre body components (first used in the Sesto Elemento). All the new aero components on the car have active aerodynamic capability and help keep the car stable at high speeds. The vehicle is capable of accelerating from 0–62 mph (0–100 km/h) in 2.9 seconds and 62–124 mph (100–200 km/h) in 6 seconds. The Performante has a theoretical top speed of 218 mph (351 km/h).
The car has been stiffened by 10% with new springs, roll bars, and radial & axial arm bushings. The magnetorheological suspension has been reworked to give a driver a serious track experience. The Lamborghini Dynamic Steering has been re-calibrated. The Performante now 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, a prototype of the Performante set a lap time of 6:52.01 on the Nürburgring Nordschleife, with Marco Mapelli behind the wheel, making it one of 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 Nordschleife 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. 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 Huracan Performante's lap time was beaten by the Porsche 911 GT2 RS which set a lap time of 6:47.3 in September 2017.
As the Lamborghini Huracán LP640-4 Performante is lighter than the Lamborghini Huracán LP610-4 by 40 kg, it gives the Lamborghini Huracán LP640-4 Performante a power to weight ratio of 2.36 kg (5.20 lb) per horsepower.
The Lamborghini Huracán Performante Spyder was unveiled at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show. It takes much of the styling inspiration from the coupé and the outgoing LP 610-4 Spyder. The spyder is identical to the coupé from performance and technological standpoint, but the acceleration time from 0–60 mph (0–97 km/h) has risen by one-tenth of a second and stands at 3.1 seconds while the 0–124 mph (0–200 km/h) has risen by four-tenths of a second and stands at 9.3 seconds. Due to the loss of the roof, the Spyder weighs 125 kg (276 lb) more than the coupé due to chassis reinforcing components. Top speed remains the same as well and stands at 202 mph (325 km/h). Deliveries of the Spyder will begin in Q4 of 2018.
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.
For the 2016 Marvel Studios film Doctor Strange, Lamborghini gave Marvel Studios 6 grey Lamborghini Huracáns, 2 for stunts, 2 for special effects, and 2 "hero ones". The Huracáns were featured in the car crash scene in that movie.
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.
Introduced in 2015, The Lamborghini Huracán GT3 was developed in collaboration with Dallara. It features the 5.2 L V10 gasoline engine of the standard car and has a weight of 1,230 kg (2,712 lb). 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.
On January 28, 2018 on the first race of the 2018 WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, the number 11 Lamborghini Huracan GT3 of GRT Grasser Racing Team finished 1st at the 2018 24 Hours of Daytona in the GTD class. It was the first time that Lamborghini has won a 24-hour race in history.
