THE cheapest Australian-delivered Lamborghini money can buy has arrived in showrooms – but it may be a long wait to get behind the wheel of one.

The Italian go-fast brand said today its order books for the $428,000 Huracan LP 610-4 – a replacement for the previous entry-level Gallardo two-seat sportscar – had already stretched out to about 12 to 18 months even as the vehicle joined Australian showrooms.

Automobili Lamborghini said the Huracan would arrive in dealer-partner showrooms in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane later this month as part of its national roll-out.

However, the 325km/h all-wheel-drive supercar has already landed in Western Australia, where the Perth-based dealership is believed to have already found buyers for the state’s entire allocation for the next year, with build orders – not delivery dates – pushed out to mid-2015.

First deliveries of the carbon fibre and aluminium-framed Huracan in Australia are expected to start in November, Lamborghini said, with about 40 cars allocated nationally for our market over the first 12 months.

The limited supply of the the 448kW/560Nm naturally aspirated 5.2-litre V10-engined supercar reflects the global demand for the freshest Lamborghini that sits beneath the $761,500 Aventador LP700-4 and even higher priced $795,000 Aventador LP700-4 Roadster.

However, the Huracan is proving a strong pull to buyers, with the brand already banking a backlog 2500 orders worldwide despite expanded production capacity at Lamborghini’s Sant’Agata plant in Bologna, Italy.

The latest performance vehicle to join the Raging Bull stable was unveiled earlier this year at the Geneva motor show.

Named after a famous Spanish fighting bull from the 1800s, the 1422kg Huracan’s normally aspirated 5.2-litre V10 punches out 43kW more power 20Nm more torque over the engine used in the Gallardo. It’s enough to push the supercar from rest to 100km/h in 3.2 seconds.

Drive is sent to all four wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.

The loss of the bread-and-butter Gallardo, which was priced from just below $400,000 and became Lamborghini’s best-selling model, has hurt the marque’s sales so far this year, with just seven sales for the first seven months of this year, and all believed to be tied in to the Aventador range.

In contrast, the supercar-maker had sold 27 cars for the first seven months of 2013, on the way to pushing year-end sales out to 47.
