Priced at $428,000 plus on-roads, the Huracan remains out of bounds for most mortals, but it is also around $27,000 more affordable than its predecessor.
Australian buyers will also benefit from a richer standard feature set than in overseas markets, where many of our local features are listed as optional extras.
The Huracan is powered by a 448kW and 560Nm 5.2 litre V10 engine, mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch auto and an all-wheel-drive layout - all packed into a carbon-fibre and aluminium architecture.
With a dry weight of 1422kg, this all adds up to a power-to-weight ratio of just 2.33kg-per-hp, promising a 3.2 second run to 100km/h.
The Huracan also boasts 0-200km/h sprint time of 9.9 seconds, with a top speed of 325km/h.
Fuel consumption, for those that care, is listed at 12.5 l/100km.
Standard features with the Huracan in Australia include 20-inch alloy wheels, sports seats wrapped in Nappa leather, leather trim throughout, six-speaker audio with Bluetooth/iPod/USB connectivity, and a digital instrument display.
Lamborghini sold more than 14,000 Gallardos over its 10-year lifetime. To put that in perspective, the exact number - 14,022 - accounts for half of all vehicle sales since the company was founded in 1963.
It’s no surprise, of course, that the company expects the Huracan to far outstrip that already impressive number. Around 40 orders have been registered in Australia so far - with a wait time of around 12 to 18 months.
