Most people won't ever get a chance to own a Lamborghini Huracán LP610-4, but nearly everyone will get to drive it. Lamborghini has launched an online driving simulator for its latest supercar which doesn't require hundreds of thousands of dollars to use, just an Internet connection. The simulator, accessible by clicking here, won't impress anyone with its mediocre graphics, but they're about what one would expect of a free online game. Controlling a virtual Lamborghini with a keyboard is also a bit tricky.
The real Huracán is motivated not by keystrokes, but by a 5.2-liter V-10 producing 601 horsepower and 480 pound-feet of torque. Coupled to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, it helps the Huracán storm from 0-62 mph in 3.2 seconds, and on to a top speed of over 202 mph. That's partially down to the car's relatively light curb weight of 3,140 pounds. The Huracán features a carbon fiber and aluminum chassis that will also form the basis for the next Audi R8.
Just as it's hard to simulate the real Huracán's performance, it's also hard to replicate the experience of sitting in a Lamborghini. For Huracán drivers, that experience will be a bit more luxurious than before, thanks to niceties like a 12.3-inch digital display and Nappa leather upholstery. The Lamborghini Huracán simulator is available now, while Sant'Agata Bolognese should deliver the first real cars to customers in the coming weeks.
