Lamborghini Huracan Avio in tuning Luethen Motorsport
Administrator World Garage
Almost three years ago at Geneva motor show, Lamborghini presented its model Huracan Avio as an exhibit. model was presented in limited edition, released in honor of Italian air force. total of 250 copies were created, each of which was markedly different from factory model. However, this did not prevent owner of one of them to seek help from masters of Luethen Motorsport, who turned an already rare model into unique exhibit.
In German workshop Huracan Avio got new body kit. It includes new composite front splitter, new side flaps, rear fender and side splitters. Naturally, all new parts were made of carbon fiber. final part in kit is new set of custom forged ROC Schmiederader FL discs with dimensions of 20 inches in front and 21 inches in back.
Huracán LP610-4. great name for car that has such great predecessor. last couple of years he pulled last effort, but at time he became fateful model for Lamborghini. 40 years since Foundation of company until presentation of compact V10 Lamborghini sold an average of 250 cars per year. But as soon as stage effectively came Gallardo, Lamborghini began to sell in year 2000 machines. In just 10 years of production has collected more than 14 000 Gallardo. Lamborghini can indulge as much as you want with deafeningly expensive and rare hypercar, but it is sales volumes that do not allow it to sink into Oblivion, like TVR.
Two clutch is instant switching. Lamborghini says Huracán accelerates to hundred in 3.2 s. it's devilishly fast: seven tenths faster than Gallardo, and exactly between 458 (3.4) and 12C (3.1). It's safe to say that owners of Huracán not give your friends on Ferrari and McLaren to race around drive-thru. To two hundred, he accelerates for 10 seconds, and maximum speed – 325 km/h. Ferrari is also 325. But that was just coincidence.
What is the difference
Unlike McLaren 12C and Aventador, Huracán has not received carbon fiber monocoque. Instead, there is "hybrid chassis": spatial frame made of carbon and aluminum. Lamborghini, as you may remember, loves carbon fiber. In Sesto Elemento based on Gallardo black material is used in wide variety of forms. So wait for him here. But this car won't be as light as Sesto, which weighs less than ton. Dry weight of Huracán is 1422 kg, so curb will be about 1500 kg. Maybe little less.
Salon we approve. Mix of Volkswagen buttons in violence of Italian design for Lamborghini have become habitual. brightest-after theatrical and frankly super starter button under red cover, as in fighter-selector at bottom of steering wheel, controlling three dynamic modes. As in Aventador, you can switch to Strada, Sport and Corsa. Judging by older brother of “Urakan " with V12, last regime will require steel will and heavy drugs. It changes box's pickup, rigor of stabilization, torque distribution, and most interestingly, V10's sound. So, there are valves in exhaust system, which can be locked in "loud" mode by removing fuse. And it also means that engineers have invested in making Huracán sound beautiful. Remember how Gallardo sang! Carbon-ceramic brakes are standard. Adaptive magnetorheological suspension, as in Corvette, R8 and latest generation of Ferrari, is offered as an option.
Appearance we will not comment. Just look at him! Huracán Gallardo aesthetics professes chopped with thin blades Aventador, but remains unique. This is undoubtedly Lambo: three-curtain poop is very similar to Aventador Roadster, y-shaped motif that is so much loved, and huge air intakes behind side Windows are taken from Sesto Elemento. But sharp elements of corporate design become in this form not only brighter, but also softer. Nicely done. And although Huracán is larger than Gallardo, it looks compact. Sinister. Beautiful.
But "Gayardo" was product of simple, innocent times. In 2003, little “Lambo” and all competitors-it was that Ferrari 360, which at that time turned off four years. Huracán need to take position in conflict zone of supercars. This is Ferrari 458, which is two generations younger than 360th, and also just an excellent Ferrari. Another rival is incredibly fast McLaren 4-12C, improving every year. And there is Audi R8, which of sports car caliber 911 Carrera has grown into pure supercar (in latest version Plus – with 550-horsepower V10) and everything else has access to warehouse of spare parts Lambo. Add to this 560-horsepower Porsche 911 Turbo S and changed worldview of BMW i8 (and if so, then future Mercedes-Benz GT, and outgoing SLS). Now it is clear that “Urakan” will have to be tighter than “Gayardo”? It'll be harder for him to convince fat cats.
The rest of model remained unchanged: stock Huracan Avio and so different in its thematic color scheme and number of other nuances. standard 10-cylinder monster with volume of 5.2 liters also remained untouched: in stock configuration, it produces 601 HP of power and 560 Nm of torque at maximum speed of 325 km/h. Acceleration from place to 100 km/h takes only 3.2 seconds.
