The exotic styling of the Huracan hides thoroughly modern and exotic underpinnings as well. The frame is a hybrid aluminum/carbon fiber affair that promises both huge amounts of rigidity and lightness. In fact, Lamborghini claims that the car is significantly lighter than the already incredibly stiff Gallardo that it replaces, benefitting both acceleration and fuel economy, though the latter is obviously not a huge concern to most owners.
The Huracan can be changed from street, to sport to track mode with the push of a button, changing everything from the speed of up and downshifts to the amount of torque that's sent to each different wheel. Optional electronically controlled magnetic shock absorbers can further change the behavior of the car with simple electronic adjustments.
Stopping is handled by enormous 6-piston caliper disc brakes in front and 4-piston caliper disc brakes at the rear with anti-lock brakes at all four corners. Dual stage front and side airbags are standard and the Huracan does have traction control and stability control. However, both can be turned off at the driver's request.
For 2020, Lamborghini has increased the range of personalized options for the Huracan, which includes wheels, upholstery options, multiple color alternatives and style packs. The Huracan interior comes with a blend of leather and Alcantara, buyers also have the option to add lightweight materials to the interior.
A Spyder convertible maintains almost all of the styling and performance of the Huracan but with a clever folding hard-top that raises and lowers in only 15 seconds. With such extroverted styling, it seems almost a shame to not be seen in the Huracan and the Spyder version gleefully fixes this shortcoming. ;
