Lamborghini celebrate with new model

Decrease Font Size Increase Font Size Text Size Print This Page









September 25th 2014 was a landmark day for one of Italy’s leading car manufacturers. To commemorate their 50th anniversary, Lamborghini launched a new supercar and named it the Huracan. 

So for half a century, Lamborghini have been making fast and amazingly good-looking cars. Let’s take a close-up look at the Huracan.

tgThe body is made of aluminium and carbon fibre, which makes it lighter than the last Lamborghini. 0-60mph takes 2.5 seconds (better than a Koinigsegg Agera R) and it’s got 375 HP (horse power) giving it a top speed of 205 mph. It comes in two different models, one being the soft top (convertible) and the other being the hard top (not a convertible).

This car is included in BBC’s Top Gear’s new DVD, Perfect Road Trip 2. It plays an important role being driven by presenter Richard Hammond and features alongside the new McLaren 650S driven by Jeremy Clarkson.

So conclusion time: overall it is a brilliant car, it looks nice and goes like a rocket. The price is reasonable too, just a mere £241,945!

    Good article boys. (I believe Harrison helped you get started.)

    You’ve got me thinking, as you all laugh at my blue Citroen Picasso appearing in all the films we make, it’s time for a change and, yes, following your article, I’m going for the Huracan. There’s only one obstacle and that’s where you two come in. Money.

    I need you to start fund raising, big time. If you can raise £241,000 I’ll look to finding the £945. Let me know what plans you have for this when I see you next Wednesday.

    On a slightly more serious note, I hope that you two make more regular car-related contributions to the YJA website. Who knows, by Easter you may, like Harrison, become YJA Correspondents?

    Great article boys. I love Lambos, for me they have always opitomised the ‘Super Car’.

    Bill, I’ll chuck in a few quid to help you out with your new purchase, just one ask though, can I get a ride to work in it please!?

    Look forward to a few more car articles from you boys, we don’t get that many on the website so who knows a few more pieces from you and you guys could be the next Clarkson and Hammond.
