Lambo’s design chief discusses the stunning yet subtle Huracán supercar DNA

Fear not Lamborghini lovers, the Italian automaker still has its head on straight. The Huracán has been out for three months now and is still under the magnifying glass. I don’t see how it is even possible to dislike any part of the Huracan, but some “Lamborghini Purists” say the new raging bull is too simple.

Lamborghini’s head of design, Filippo Perini, explains that the Huracan was designed to be pure, simplistic, and functional. For example, the subtly hidden intakes and scoops not only enhance aerodynamics but also lend to sleeker look. The full-size Lambo, the Aventador, has such visual drama that Lamborghini wanted to make sure the Huracán would not be confused with its older brother at first glance.

A car that will do 0 to 60 mph in 3.2 seconds and reach a top speed of 202 mph is pretty extreme. I think Lamborghini has gone about making the all-wheel drive menace in all the right ways. Yes it is sleeker than other models but it makes up for being less aggressive by being physically smaller. It’s this diminutive stature makes it an easier car to drive. It also manages to be faster than its predecessor, the Gallardo, while using the same V10 engine.

All gripes aside, the Huracán has certainly proven itself as a Lamborghini for the everyday Lambo man … if there is such a thing. There have already been 1,000 orders received so far and it looks like Lamborghini wants to blow the previous Gallardo sales out of the water. At least 14,022 Huracáns will need to be sold in order to beat the Gallardo’s all-time record.
