The brand new 2015 Lamborghini Huracan doesn’t stand on the shoulders of its predecessors. Instead it rises above them on its own merits. Lamborghinis of the past had a reputation for being speedsters on straightaways, but slow and difficult to control on the corners. The newest model is still one of the fastest things on wheels on a straight road, but also maintains that speed through the turns. This shouldn’t be surprising, since this speedster has sleek tight lines and is so low that it is practically glued to the pavement. The smooth curved chasse is highlighted by sharp lines surrounding the low grill, headlights, and rear air intake. The result is a car that draws eyes to the sharp looking hood even when flashing down the highway at full speed.
The 2015 Lamborghini Huracan is ranked as the 4th best exotic sports car by Car and Driver for a reason. The 7-speed dual clutch transmission that can be used in manual or automatic controls a DOHC 40-valve V-10 engine. That adds up 602 horsepower and a 413 lb torque and a top of line zero to sixty acceleration of 2.5 seconds. Or, if you really want to see this car purr, you can take it from zero to 100 in 5.7 seconds and zero to 150 in 13.3 seconds. At those speeds, the 4-wheel drive anti-lock brake system is critical and while the 2015 Lamborghini Huracan can’t stop on a dime, it can decelerate from seventy to zero in an excellent distance of just under 150 feet.
The interior of this car is as much of a luxury as the exterior. A four speaker CD/DVD player comes with iPod, USB, Bluetooth audio, and media-card inputs as well as a pair of LCD monitors. Leather seats are set back to give both driver and passenger a surprising amount of legroom for a two door sports car. An outside temperate monitor, tilting and telescoping leather steering wheel, driver foot rest, full cloth headliner, and leather dashboard are the final pieces that make for the most comfortable ride possible.
Additional standard features include power windows, power locks, remote keyless entry, dual zone automatic air conditioning, power adjustable and recline seats, valet function, and perimeter alarm. The car is designed for maximum convenience.
A car like this seems like it would have abysmal fuel mileage, but the 2015 Lamborghini Huracan actually has some of the best fuel mileage in its class. The 21.1 gallon tank gets 20 mpg on the highway and, given that it is a sports car, a surprisingly good 14 mpg in city driving. The ability to drive roughly 400 miles on a tank is comparable to many sedans with smaller fuel tanks and means the car won’t need to constantly be refueled.
It also sports a wide range of safety features that protect passengers even when traveling at top speeds. Front, side, and side head airbags protect both driver and passenger in case of a collision, while side impact beams decrease the damage in a collision. Finally, electronic stability control, sideline traction control and low tire pressure warnings decrease the chances of collisions from ever occurring.
You couldn’t ask for finer in an exotic sports car, but if you want a little more luxury, the 2015 Lamborghini Huracan can provide. Forged wheels, leather sports seats, colored stitching, red brake calipers, and a built-in navigation system are all available as options. Speed, style, and comfort simply define this street hugging beauty and if you are in the market for an exotic sports car, you should visit a Lamborghini dealer today.
