I’m sure you will agree with me that the new baby Lamborghini makes the old one look prehistoric. Now that the Lamborghini Gallardo is all grown up, the Lamborghini Huracan has replaced it and with more power and styling that follows the big brother; the Lamborghini Aventador.
Like all the Lamborghinis since the Countach, the Huracan features the Italian brand’s aggressive styling with angular shapes. Compared to the Gallardo, the Huracan’s hood flows smoother into the windshied and follows the styling cues taken from the Aventador with wide upper door sections that channels air into the engine compartment through the C-Pillar scoop just aft of the quarter window.
Around the back, the Huracan’s rear glass flows from the top of the roof into the rear deck. A body-colored panel breaks up the rear vents between the taillights. While horizontal taillights remain, they now wrap around the side and feature a single outward pointing arrow-shaped LED with three upper sections instead of the Gallardo’s three arrow-shaped lighting elements. Dual exhaust tips poke out of each corner of the lower diffuser that is arched at the top where it meets the rear fascia.
Inside, the Huracan has a more angular look, which is most apparent in the instrument cluster hood and vents. The Gallardo’s four-gauge instrument cluster has been replaced with a configurable information screen. The steering wheel features more buttons and the center stack and console are narrower, similar to the one found in the McLaren 12C.

610 horsepower and 560 Nm (413 lb-ft) of twist sent to all four wheels via the automaker’s first ever dual-clutch transmission equals lots of fun and sideways hooning if you’re brave enough to grab the bull by its horns. But the DMC Huracan Affari does even better than that with its 620 HP. Those extra 10 ponies were squeezed from new engine management electronics and a freer-flowing exhaust system.
But the icing on the cake isn’t the added get-up-and-go. It’s that venomous green paint job and the carbon fiber bits and bobs which make the exterior of the Huracan way more aggressive than that of the standard model. There’s also a new body kit and a re-engineered deck lid that houses an adjustable rear wing, while a set of 20 and 21-inch forged alloy wheels round off the DMC Affari body kit nicely.
