Despite having been the “best selling Lamborghini of all time,” the company is replacing the 10-year old Gallardo with a new car model aptly dubbed the Huracán* LP610-4, after a Spanish bull who fought in 1879.

The car, which will make its actual debut at the International Auto Show in Geneva in March, will pack an even heftier punch than its predecessor. Although Lamborghini is retaining the usual 5.2 liter V-10 engine, it has ramped up the power up to 610 hp, and increased the torque to 413 lb per foot allowing the Huracán to hit the pavement at 60 mph on just 3.2 seconds, maxing out at a top speed of 201 mph with a newly designed 7
