It's barely been two months since Lamborghini revealed the new Huracan. The latest ten-cylinder Raging Bull hasn't even had its public debut yet, scheduled to take place next month at the Geneva Motor Show (the same show where McLaren will reveal its new 650S and Ferrari the revised California T). But the Bolognese automaker has already managed to take a whopping 700 orders for the new supercar.

Not that the customers are waving their checkbooks sight unseen, mind you. Over the course of the past month, Lamborghini has been carting pre-production Huracans around the world for VIP clients, 700 of whom have put down their deposits.

To put that number into perspective, consider that in 2012 (the last full year of production), the factory in Sant'Agata built just over 1,200 Gallardos. Assuming Huracan production continues at the same pace, that means Lamborghini already has over half a year's worth of production spoken for. So if you want to get yours anytime in the coming year, you'd better get your deposit in lickety-split.

LAMBORGHINI HURACÁN AN IMMEDIATE SUCCESS: 700 ORDERS IN A MONTH
Candidate for 'star of the show' at Geneva Motor Show

Sant'Agata Bolognese, Italy, 12 February 2014 - The Lamborghini Huracán has already obtained 700 orders during a, as yet unfinished, month-long private preview tour worldwide for VIP clients. An excellent start for the heir to the best selling Lamborghini to date, the Gallardo.

The Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4 is powered by a 610-horsepower 5.2-litre normally-aspirated V10 engine, which allows it to reach a top speed of 325 km/h and accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.2 seconds, placing it at the top of its segment.

A candidate for 'star of the show' at Geneva Motor Show, it will be the first vehicle to be revealed at the exhibition, during a press conference given by President and CEO Stephan Winkelmann, scheduled for 8 a.m. on Tuesday March 4th, 2014.

The presentation will contain innovative elements -- not just the video of the supercar shot over the last few days in Los Angeles, but also the reveal.

      I heard it is because of our "Bullish" market, that sales are doing so good.

      700 units is not that great result considering the fact that Lexus sold 500 units in even less time of a car wich cost like 3 Huracan.

      Honest to God, I saw one on I-75 between Tampa and Orlando this weekend. It was pure black and hauling ass the other way. My wife probably thought I was going to jump out my window after it.

        That was most likely an Aventador. Reading this article would tell you that. "PRE-SOLD", as in they haven't even been released to the public yet.

        You mean on I-4? That's the interstate that connects Tampa and Orlando.

      As much as I love the Aventador, this car is over $100,000 less expensive and is probably a better performer on the track. I'd take this car in coupe form and the Aventador in Spyder form... since it's more of a cruiser. Kind of how if I was buying Porsche I'd get the GT3 and a Turbo S Convertible and use them for two totally different purposes.

      They would sell even more if more people could afford it.

      The Huracan is going for 285K loaded up with the options. If you wait and buy one off the show room floor, then you will pay around 30k over sticker. When the Aventador came out you paid around 50k over sticker if you bought off the show room floor.

      I think this Huracan is such a beautiful car, my dream car.
