The Lamborghini Huracán is a sports car built by the Italian carmaker Lamborghini, and was available for sale in mid-2014. The Huracán was unveiled in the 2014 Geneva Auto Show, and translates into Spanish, meaning 'hurricane'. The Huracán is the replacement for the iconic Lamborghini Gallardo.

The Huracán is powered by a 5.2 litre Lamborghini V10, which was also used in the Gallardo, and produces 610bhp. Unlike the Gallardo, this car also features a stop-start system for fuel-efficiency. The Huracán is also a mid-engined two-door. It has a top speed of over 202 mph and does 0-60mph in 3.0 seconds, despite several cars doing 0-60mph in 2.7 seconds. It also features an AWD system.

In 2017, the Huracán Performante set a new lap record at the Nurburgring of 6:52.01 seconds, beating the hybrid powered Porsche 918.
