LAMBORGHINI AVENTADOR VS HURACAN

Lamborghini has become synonymous with exotic supercars, but the most eye-catching models currently are the Lamborghini Aventador vs Huracan . Both of them are supercars in their capacities and their presence puts the rest of the sports cars, within their ranks, to shame.

The Aventador has been engineered to revolutionize the concept of performance and establish a new benchmark in the segment of super sports cars. As Lamborghini puts it, the innovation in the Aventador takes the house of the raging bulls to yet another unexplored territory.

There has never been an era in Lamborghini’s past when two of its models (Huracan and Aventador) were so close. The two Lambos are extremely close in terms of performance and this will evidently be illustrated in the dissections below. If you have never been behind the wheel of a Lamborghini on an open stretch of road, check out the various models of Lamborghini for rent on 777Exotics.com.  Discover for yourself why some people refer to these as supercars.

Lamborghini Huracan

Huracan was made to replace Lamborghini’s sales leader and most produced car, the Gallardo. It has adopted a 2-door coupe and a 2-door spyder body style.

Technical specifications

Engine

Huracan maintains a 5.2 L naturally aspirated Audi/Lamborghini V10 engine from Gallardo, turned for 602 hp (449 kW), and a torque of 560 Nm (413 lb-ft) with a top speed of 212 mph (314 km/hr.). It combines the benefits of both direct fuel injection and multi-port fuel injection to increase efficiency. Just like the Aventador, the Huracan opted for a mid-engine design for balance and better performance.

Performance

With a dry weight of 1422 kg (3135 lb.), the Huracan has a power to weight ratio of 2.36 kg per horsepower. It does 0 – 60 mph (97 km/h) with 2.5s, 0 – 300km/h (180 mph) at 27.6s and can brake from 100 km/h – 0 in under 30 meters.

The Huracan has optional “Lamborghini Dynamic Steering” that changes the steering performance from normal, comfortable steering to a racing feeling. With this, the vehicle is able to adapt to any suitable driving mode. The main control for changing the car’s performance according to driving conditions is the mode selector ANIMA (Adaptive Network Intelligent Management). this controls the engine, the transmission, LDS, the All-Wheel Drive, the suspension and the electronic stability control.

The Lamborghini Piattaforma Inerziale (LPI) carries out precise measurements of the vehicle movements using on board sensors (3 accelerometers and 3 gyroscopes)

Transmission System

The car has a 7 speed dual clutch transmission, the ‘Doppia Frizione’ gearbox. Huracane will only be available with an automatic transmission with no manual option.

Suspension

It is equipped with magnetically controlled suspension system, utilizing magnetorheological dampers to swiftly change how the suspension acts. What else can one get with this apart from superior driving performance, comfort and sophisticated road handling should the vehicle be subjected to extreme road conditions.

 

Interior

Features a choice for full electric control and heating of the sports seats, in addition to the standard lengthwise alignment and electric backrest.

The infotainment system features a 12.3 inch TFT virtual cockpit available with HD 3D computer graphics, Bluetooth, google earth GPS navigation system and a multimedia interface-like menu and dashboards controls powered by Nvidia Tegra

Exterior

The car has full LED headlamps which provides higher contrasts in night conditions.

It has a wheelbase, length, width and height of 2620 mm, 4459 mm, 1924 mm, and 1165 mm respectively. The chassis is made from Aluminum and carbon fiber hybrid with its body from Aluminum and synthetic materials. The external mirrors are electrically operated, heated and foldable. The rear fixed spoiler has been integrated into the body; completely paneled underbody.

Safety

The Huracan come standard with driver, passenger and side airbags. They are equipped with passive side protection system featuring a front and rear specific collapsible areas. The active safety system on the other hand is largely made up of electronic stability control (ABS and TCS integrated).

 

Lamborghini Aventador

The Aventador just like the Huracan is a mid-engine sports car. It is available in 2-door coupe and 2-door road star body styles. At its launch in 2011, the company announced the Aventador as the successor to the aging Murcielago.

Engine

The Aventador LP700-4 series features the new 6.5 L V12 engine with a maximum power and torque of 690 bhp (510 kW) and 689Nm (508 lb-ft) at 5500 rpm respectively, and can attain a top speed of 354 km/h (220 mph). This is Lamborghini’s fourth in-house engine and a second V12 design. It has 17.2 L/km combined fuel consumption.

Performance

The Aventador has a power to weight ratio of 2.254 kg per horsepower. It does 0 – 97 km/h (60 mph) in 2.9 seconds and can brake from 60 mph – 0 in 30 meters.

Transmission

It uses a single clutch seven speed semi-automatic transmission capable of accomplishing gearshifts in 50 milliseconds. Absolute brilliance. Just like the Huracan, its AWD is electronically controlled, offering traction and handling capabilities based on their fourth generation technology.

Steering and Suspension

Aventador is equipped with push rod magneto-rheological active front and rear suspension with horizontal dampers and springs. This suspension type takes the double wishbone fully independent geometry. Its steering system is hydraulically assisted with the LDS technology.

Interior

A close look at the Aventador shows how much of it is inspired by modern aircraft right from the extensive use of planar surfaces and sharp creases to the innovative and interactive TFT LCD display. A second TFT display at the center of the instrument panel is devoted to multimedia and navigation functions. Visibility is surprisingly good, given how low and wide it is and the cabin is easy to understand and operate. Boot space is impressive, but the storage opportunities are a bit clumsy as is evident from the miniscule glove compartment.

Exterior

The chassis, engine bonnet, rear air inlets and the spoiler are made from carbon fiber but other panels are from Aluminum and synthetic materials. The exterior mirrors, just like the Huracan, are electrically operated, heated and foldable. The Aventador makes extensive use of planar surfaces and sharp creases which are in line with the company’s styling. Another notable aerodynamic feature is the rear electronically operated spoiler with three positions completely paneled underbody. The wheels are equipped with 20 inch and 21 inch DIONE silver forged aluminum alloy front and rear rims respectively. It has a wheelbase, length, width and height of 2700mm, 4780 mm, 2030 mm, and 1136 mm respectively.

Safety

Come standard with driver, passenger and side airbags with knee airbags only available for specific markets. The Aventador and the Huracan contain similar active and passive safety systems, both adopting the side protection systems and electronic stability controls (ABS and TSC integrated).
