The 2015 Lamborghini Huracan is certainly one of the most anticipated vehicles of the coming year. Complete with the latest technology and carbon fiber auto parts that permeate the spoilers, lip, bumpers, grilles, hood, truck and other areas, this promises to be one of the best from Lamborghini.

However, there is a great deal about this vehicle that you may not know, such as these 18 facts.

Huracan is Spanish for “Hurricane”: It is pronounced “ooo-rah-khan”.

The Huracan differs from the Aventador in terms of Construction: Although its chassis is the classic hybrid of aluminum and carbon fiber, it does not have the full carbon fiber passenger cell like the Aventador.

Most Technically Advanced Lamborghini Ever: From new dash controls to throttle, transmission response, stability and noise control, the Huracan has technology built through and through.

Huracan Engine Optimizes Fuel Delivery: With port and direct injection, the engine gains additional power and performance.

Aerodynamic is the Key to the Huracan: This vehicle is over 8% aerodynamically efficient over the Gallardo and has 3% less drag as well. What’s most interesting is that the downforce which keeps the vehicle solid to the ground is up by over 50%.

Huracan is Faster than it Looks: Actually, it looks better in person than in photos, but the Huracan can go from 0 to 60 mph is a mere 3.2 seconds and reach speeds of 202 mph. In fact, it can go from 0 to 124 mph in under 10 seconds.

Audi R8 Gearbox Included: The seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox is an Audi design specially made for Lamborghini.

Electronic Steering Control: This allows an alteration of performance depending upon the speed. At lower speeds, the steering is quicker for better turns and slower at higher speeds for better stability.

New Controls on the Steering Wheel Spokes: The turn signals or windshield wipers controls are now on the steering wheel spokes similar to many Ferraris models. This was done to accommodate the new shift paddles which are larger. In addition, the controls for the radio are now found on the central control panel.

Large Carbon-Ceramic Brakes: At 62 mph, the larger 15” front and 14” rear brakes will stop the car in 105’.

Brand New Interior: The all-new interior allows for more room inside the vehicle while offering plenty of features, including new quarter windows for checking blind spots.

No Manual Transmission Option: Lamborghini reports that only 2% of its vehicles over the last decade sold with manual transmission, so that option is being dropped for the Huracan.

The Huracan is More Expensive than the Gallardo: It is $62,000 more expensive with a suggested price of $270,000.

New All-Wheel Drive: A computer-controlled system for driving all the wheels is in place, allowing it to change the power settings according to the road conditions.

New Special Editions Announced: In an unusual move, Lamborghini announced future editions for the Huracan, including a Super Trofeo Stradale and a rear-wheel drive model as well.

It’s Bigger than the Gallardo: Although not by much as the Huracan is 2.4” longer in the wheelbase and 1” wider as well.

Advanced Hi-Tech Digital Dash: Even more sophisticated than the Aventador, this vehicle uses a 12.3” screen that is reconfigurable.

All in all, the Huracan promises to be one of the most exciting Lamborghini vehicles ever made.
