With its new ‘IDS’ 5.2-litre V10 engine, backing up the styling ought not to be an issue. IDS stands for Iniezione Diretta Stratificata, a mixture of direct and indirect fuel injection. So while it’s identical to the Gallardo’s engine in size, ten-cylinder layout and natural aspiration, its power and torque figures are much higher while fuel consumption and CO2 emission figures decrease.
Peak outputs of 602bhp at 8250rpm and 413lb ft at 6500rpm represent rises of 50bhp and 15lb ft over the regular Gallardo LP560-4, yielding an improvement in performance, though the Huracan’s 202mph-plus top speed and 3.5sec 0-60 time aren’t vastly superior to before. They’re still pretty scintillating numbers, of course, as is a 9.9sec 0-124mph time. The engine is EU6 compliant and Lamborghini claims 290g/km CO2 emissions and 22.6mpg fuel economy.
The engine drives all four wheels via another acronym, LDF. Lamborghini Doppia Frizione is the exceedingly glamorous name for a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox, the first time such a transmission has been used in a Lambo. Simply amazing!
