Lamborghini Huracan’s V10 engine is closely related to Audi’s TFSI V8 engine blocks. A lot of technologies are shared in common, such as hollow camshafts for weight reduction, 36MnVS4 lathe steel handrails, pistons machined by Kolben Schmidt with a special piston head design carved with a special vortex groove to create. spin to increase the saturation of the air in the combustion chamber, etc. Even a 90-degree cylinder angle is a shared factor with Audi’s V8 engine (the optimal cylinder angle of the V10 must is 72 degrees, 90 degrees is the optimal angle of the V8 engine.However, related to Audi, Lamborghini Huracan is also one of the few supercars that still retain the auto-loaded V10 engine. With the Audi R8 brothers, this is good news for fans of high-performance cars in general and Lamborghini fans in particular, although this joy will not last long. u again before the trend of electrochemical things
In addition to the new engine, the 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox is also an important component that helps the rear-wheel drive Lamborghini Huracan accelerate very quickly, to 100 km / h in just 3.4 seconds and reach a maximum speed of 320 km / h. How many times can you blink per second? Huracan’s seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox can shift gears in just 0.1 seconds, faster than the blink of an eye. Lamborghi calls this gearbox “Lamborghini Doppia Frizione” and it is the main weapon that makes the Huracan capable of impressive acceleration, not inferior to that of rivals possessing turbocharged engines.
Unfortunately, Lamborghini has abandoned the manual transmission option on the Huracan. According to them, only about 2% of all Lamborghini cars sold are equipped with a manual number and that makes it impossible for them to continue offering the manual option.
For those who love the new technology, the Carbon Forged Composite of Lamborghini is also what they love. What is forged composite? It is carbon fiber but it is manufactured in a different way than traditional carbon fiber we often see. In addition to the visual differences, the properties of the Forged Composite carbon fiber and the traditional type also differ significantly.
The first difference is that traditional carbon fiber is an anisotropic material, that is, it has extremely high stiffness and fatigue in the direction of the arrangement of carbon molecules, but it is very brittle and brittle in the direction of rest. An example of carbon fiber anisotropy is F1, where carbon-fiber racing cars often break in an accident. In contrast, Forged Composite carbon fiber is an isotropic material, meaning that all its physical properties are maintained in all directions, simply because the carbon molecules are in an unordered arrangement. at all.
The next difference is in the manufacturing process. Traditional carbon fiber is produced by experienced craftsmen. They will arrange carbon fiber pieces into molds in layers, one layer at a time and shape the pieces of carbon fiber and place them in a vacuum bag. The last, and most time-consuming, step is to steam those carbon-fiber parts in an autoclave with a certain temperature and pressure over a period of up to 24 hours.
Because the process of processing carbon fiber components, as well as the process of producing carbon fiber pieces, is very time-consuming and laborious, the cost of carbon fiber is not cheap at all. . What is special about the Forged Composite carbon fiber that Lamborghini has patented is that the process of making Forged Composite parts is hundreds of times faster than using traditional carbon fiber.
Forged Composite fabrications are simple: engineers simply shred carbon cloth into small pieces and pour them into a closed mold, then heat them at around 160 degrees Celsius and under 100 times greater pressure. barometric pressure. After only 3 minutes, the Forged Composite made of carbon fiber has formed and just a few simple steps, it is ready to be used.
Three minutes compared to tens of hours is a huge difference, and the faster, easier production will make Forged Composite cheaper than traditional carbon fiber. It sounds simple, but it took 8 years for Lamborghini and Boing to optimize the manufacturing of the Forged Composite and it took some time before the Forged Composite windows and reinforcement bars were installed on the Boeing 787s. Dreamliner.
With such a significant amount of technology, how does the Lamborghini Huracan RWD bring about the experience? It is difficult to describe that experience in words, really hard! Sitting in the car, you will feel uncomfortable with the extremely low seating position compared to the road surface. The next shock comes when you try to accelerate the Huracan. This car needs 3.4 seconds to reach the 100 km / h mark, not the fastest supercar I have ever tried but it is enough for those who are not familiar with the super car to build a face!
The next jump until you step on the brake pedal fully. Although not equipped with ceramic-carbon brakes, Huracan’s braking ability is also very respectable, enough to cover the internal organs in all forward! To be honest, braking ability comes more from the tire set than what the disc is made of.
The most impressive thing for me in my brief experience with Lamborghini Huracan is its pô. McLaren 720s or Ferrari 488 GTB can’t have a terrifying scream like the 5.2-liter V10 engine block of Lamborghini Huracan! It was a scream of freedom, unrestrained by turbochargers. The owner of the Huracan also modified the titanium exhaust system for this supercar, increasing the ears for the sound of this supercar. Of course, McLaren or Ferrari will accelerate faster, be more flexible when cornering or in short, rhyme the super cars “happy”. Conversely, driving Huracan back “happy ears” more!
At VND 12.8 billion, this 2016 Huracan RWD offers a supercar-like experience to customers who are willing to spend that much money looking for extraordinary experiences. Of course, for less money, they can still buy a new 911 with the same performance. However, you do not buy a Lamborghini because of its performance. You choose it simply because it is a Lamborghini!
