The Huracan replaces the V10-powered Gallardo model, the company’s best-selling model, which went out of production after 10 years, the New York Times reported.

The new 3,135-pound Lamborghini features a 610-horsepower 5.2-liter V10 and top speeds of 201 miles per hour. To help it stop, the car has carbon-ceramic brakes.

There is a growing demand for such high-performance cars.

"Extreme (cars are) growing in volume and price," PwC Autofacts analyst Michael Gartside told the Wall Street Journal. "People want more exclusivity. Something others don't have."

The Huracan’s interior has fine Nappa leather and a 12.3-inch infotainment screen.

As with most Lamborghinis, the car is named after a famous bull. Huracan was a Spanish fighting bull that fought in Alicante in August 1879. Huracan is also Spanish for hurricane.
