The new Lamborghini replaces the company's iconic Gallardo, which was the most successful Lambo ever. While there is no price published yet, some of the auto press say the Huracan is expected to start at more than $250,000.

Lamborghini, whose logo is a charging bull, said the name "Huracan" is also the name of a Spanish fighting bull that fought in 1879 and is known for its "outstanding courage and strong sense of attack."
The car is "redefining the benchmark for luxury super sports cars in this segment," the company added.
But to do that, they'll have to overcome fierce competition from Ferrari, McLaren, Bugatti, Pagani and other supercar makers who are all raising the bar in design and performance.
Last year, Lamborghini sold an impressive 2,083 cars and now that it's under Volkswagen's Audi unit, Lamborghini has refined its interiors, rolled out new technologies and made the cars more reliable.
