Witness the successor to Lamborghini's Gallardo, whose 10-year lifespan saw the most production of any single model — with 14,022 cars built — from the Italian exotic-car maker. Dubbed the Huracán LP 610-4, the new baby Lambo slots beneath the Aventador to take on the Ferrari 458 Italia and Aston Martin DB9.
The Huracán takes its name from a Spanish bull, not an epic windstorm or University of Miami sports. Lamborghini says it will combine performance with drivability; the brand will unveil the car in more than 130 private events worldwide beginning in January, followed by a public unveiling at the Geneva International Motor Show in March 2014.
