BMW i8 vs. Lamborghini Huracan
The BMW i8 is first introduced as the BMW Concept Vision Efficient Dynamics, and it is a plug-in hybrid electric sports car.
This hybrid i8 has an electric motor located in the front axle powering the front wheels rated 96 kW (129 hp) and 250 N·m (184 lb·ft) and a turbocharged 1.5-liter 3-cylinder gasoline engine driving rear wheels rated 164 kW ( 220 hp) and 300 N·m (221 lb·ft) of torque. Also has a lithium-ion battery pack that allows an all-electric range of 35 km (22 mi) and all four wheels provide regenerative braking. Good news is that the location of the battery pack in the energy tunnel gives the vehicle a low centre of gravity, enhancing its dynamics.
The BMW i8 can go from 0–100 km/h (0–62 mph) in 4.4 seconds and has a top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph).
The Lamborghini Huracan is a sports car, replacing Lamborghini’s sales leader and most produced car, the Gallardo. The name – Huracan LP 610-4 comes from the fact that this car has 610 horsepower and 4 wheel drive. This car was named “The Supercar of the Year 2014”.
It has many changes that include: full LED illumination, a 12.3 inch full-colour TFT instrument panel, Fine Nappa leather and Alcantara interior upholstery, redesigned dashboard and central tunnel, Iniezione Diretta Stratificata (IDS, essentially an adapted version of parent Audi’s Fuel Stratified Injection) direct and indirect gasoline injections.
The Huracan also has engine Stop & Start technology, EU6 emissions regulation compliance, Lamborghini Doppia Frizione (LDF) 7-speed dual-clutch transmission with 3 modes (STRADA, SPORT and CORSA), 20 inch wheels, carbon-ceramic brake system, optional Lamborghini Dynamic Steering variable steering system and MagneRide electromagnetic damper control.
