Lamborghini on Designing the Huracán LP 610-4
lamborghini | March 13, 2014
The stunning Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4 was first unveiled at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show and there have already been more than 1,000 Huracáns ordered (you can configure yours now, if you’d like). In this video, Lamborghini’s Head of Design, Filippo Perini, explains how the company approached the design of the new supercar. The designers began with the iconic designs of Lamborghini’s past to create a car with a totally different approach.
The car follows a solid, mono-body design with sweeping surfaces and precise lines. Combining daily usability with state-of-the-art performance. In order to make the car more approachable, the vents necessary for cooling and aerodynamics are hidden as much as possible. The car also carries a hexagon design theme throughout, which can be seen from the front headlights to the rear grille and that is also carried over to the interior. Lamborghini’s overall goal with the design was to make a car that was not intimidating to the everyday driver but without compromising the auto maker’s legendary performance.
