The Huracan can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.2 seconds, 0 to 200 km/h in 9.9 seconds and has a top speed of 325 km/h. Lamborghini has added Start/Stop technology to Huracan, resulting in a reduced fuel consumption of 12.5 liters per 100 kilometer while emitting 290 g/km of CO2.
The powerful 10 cylinder engine comes mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission complemented by an all wheel drive system featuring a new multi plate clutch. The car can be driven in three different modes which can be selected via a switch on the steering wheel.
