Just a year after Lamborghini unveiled its Huracan supercar at the Geneva Motor Show, the 2,000th model will be delivered this week - to a Hong Kong customer.

The white “raging bull”, with the serial number 2000, was on display on Friday when the Italian company opened its new 26,000 sq ft service centre in Kwai Chung.

The carmaker says the new centre, which has 45 work bays and can accommodate 60 cars in the ground-floor space, was set up to enhance the quality and efficiency of its services. Its old service centre, in Wong Chuk Hang, was roughly the same size but was on multiple levels.

“Communication among technicians are streamlined, and time taken for the transportation of parts and equipment is accelerated,” said Albert Wong, director of Lamborghini Hong Kong.

The Huracan LP610-4, which costsHK$3.998 million (including tax), is the smaller of Lamborghini’s two models. Production began in the second quarter of last year, when it replaced the best-selling Gallardo, of which more than 14,000 were built during a 10-year run.

The Huracan is powered by a 5,204cc, V10 engine with an output of 610 horsepower. It can sprint from zero to 100km/h in 3.2 seconds and has a top speed of 325km/h.

Hong Kong is a small city but an important market for Lamborghini. A spokesman said 130 Huracans had been sold in Hong Kong, of which 65 had been delivered to customers so far.

In recognition of the city’s significance to Lamborghini, the company produced a special edition of eight Gallardo HK20s in 2012 to celebrate the 20th anniversary of its local dealership, Kingsway Motors.

Last year, it opened a pop-up museum for four months in Causeway Bay, featuring a rotating display of classic models and a photo exhibition.
