The 2018 Lamborghini Huracan is a sports car built by the Italian company Lamborghini, replacing the legendary Gallardo, one of the most successful cars in the history of the company. As is the tradition in the Lamborghini brand, the name Huracán came from the legendary bull of life pardoned in the Plaza Real Maestranza of Seville. Lamborghini launched in August 2014 a version destined to the competition of the Hurricane. The Huracan Super Trofeo has more 9cv than the standard version, rear-wheel drive and a set of special aerodynamic appendages. This car was specially manufactured with the help of Dallara for the monochrome trophy organized by Lamborghini, the Lamborghini Blancpain Series with tests on three continents (Asia, Europe, and North America)
Lamborghini applied for a patent on the name Huracán on 19 April 2012. Like other models of Lamborghini, the name comes from bullfighting. Huracán is a Spanish bull breed. In June 2013 it became known that the Lamborghini Gallardo would be followed and in August of 2013, the first prototypes were photographed.
The 2018 Lamborghini Huracán has a chassis made of aluminum and carbon fiber. The wheels attached to this have Pirelli tires and are connected to a magnetorheological suspension. They have hydraulic brakes with for six calipers and four rear. The chassis can be adjusted in three modes: Strada, sport, and Corso. Strada is the most suitable for daily use, in sports control is sharper and the ESP partly goes out, while in Corsa the ESP goes out completely.

The LP 610-4 was presented first, again with an atmospheric 5.2-liter V10 engine. The block now delivers 610 hp and a torque of 560 Nm, the same as in the new Audi R8. The V10 is electrically injected with direct injection and the cylinders are rotated at an angle of 90 °.

The five starting points for the rear-wheel-drive were: handling, balance in driving behavior, directness of the steering, feedback in the steering wheel and oversteer. As was the case with his predecessor, the two-wheel drive Huracán is less powerful, now the block delivers 580 hp and 540 Nm.
