Lamborghini celebrated its 50th anniversary last year and the luxury car brand is showing no signs of taking its foot off the pedal, as it prepares to launch another new model to add to its supercar range. The Lamborghini Huracán, will be officially presented at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2014; however, there has been a sneak preview of the car in the United States.

Lamborghini put the new model through its paces in front of the cameras, with the car demonstrating its speed and handling skills in a video which was released recently. The Huracán is theoretically seen as a challenger to the ever-popular Lamborghini Gallardo Spider model, which has been so successful for the company. The new car is typically built for speed and it clocks in at over 202 miles per hour, taking just an impressive three seconds to reach 60 miles per hour from a standing start.

The interior of the car has been updated and is in the mould of a jetfighter pilot, while the exterior is sleek with smooth contours, and is typically classy. The model will undoubtedly be the latest in a long line of stunning cars that Lamborghini has produced and should sit nicely alongside the aforementioned Gallardo and the Adventador and is hoped to raise the bar, with the Italian manufacturer hoping that this new model will help them continue to compete with other rivals such as Ferrari and Aston Martin.

The Huracán will be on sale from 2015, so supercar aficionados will have to wait a while before having the chance to compare it with earlier models. In the meantime, the Lamborghini loving public will have to content themselves with the superb earlier models which are still on sale.
