Lamborghini Gallardo vs Huracan: How do they size up?
Bear with me, but I don't remember seeing anyone comparing the outside dimensions of the Gallardo vs the Huracan. I find that odd, considering the Huracan was the HIGHLY anticipated replacement to the Gallardo, but I suppose enthusiasts and journalists alike had better questions to ask regarding the two than whether or not the Huracan is much bigger or much smaller than the baby-Lambo it replaced. No matter, I'll just answer that question for myself today.
Disclaimer: As always, the numbers were sourced from Edmunds.
Huracan: 175.6 inches (or 4,460 mm) long.
Gallardo: 171.1 inches (or 4,345 mm) long.
Have to be honest here, I wasn't expecting that much of a difference between the two. If any difference at all truthfully. You learn something new every day though, and I definitely just did.
Huracan: 75.8 inches (or 1,925 mm) wide.
Gallardo: 74.8 inches (or 1,899 mm) wide.
Now this is what I was expecting, an inch difference at most. It's sort of odd that they're exactly an inch off but I'm not going to make a mountain out of a molehill here. More likely than not there just wasn't a good reason to make the Huracan wider than that.
Huracan: 45.9 inches (or 1,165 mm) tall.
Gallardo: 45.9 inches (or 1,165 mm) tall.
Far stranger than the one-inch difference in width, is the fact that the Huracan and Gallardo aren't different whatsover in height. Not sure what kind of difference I was expecting, but I sure wasn't anticipating them to be exactly the same.
Huracan: 103.2 inches (or 2,621 mm) long.
Gallardo: 100.8 inches (2,560 mm) long.
Lastly, we have this little gem of a stat. Even if I am a little startled by how much longer the Huracan's wheelbase is, I'm more intrigued by the shortness of the Gallardo's wheelbase. It just seems so short when compared to its successor, but I digress.....
What have we learned then? Well, we learned that the Gallardo is shorter in wheelbase and overall length, the same height, and an inch narrower. The upshot of that is the difference in size between a Huracan and a Gallardo in the real world probably isn't noticeable unless you have the two side-by-side, that's all there is to it!
