Lamborghini Huracan Unloads 700 Units in First Month

In the event anyone was worried about how the new Lamborghini Huracan would fare in the fierce market, they have sold 700 units in the first month. That is correct, the Lamborghini Gallardo replacement is running over competition and completely surpassing projections—even before the official reveal! The Huracan will take the stage at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show next month. 

To put things into perspective, total sales for Lamborghini were 2,121 units last year. That makes the sale of 700 Lamborghini Huracan cars in one month a total shock. The brand spared no expense in quietly drumming up anticipation for the Huracan, which certainly had large shoes to fill from the long-reigning Gallardo. Because the Gallardo was king for so long, the replacement will likely be worth much more down the road, making it an ideal collector car to scoop up.

 The powerful Huracan houses a heftier version of the 5.2-liter V10 from the Gallardo. The mid-mounted engine kicks out 610 horses, nailing the 0-60 mile per hour sprint in just 3.2 seconds. While it is automated transmission only, the Huracan is AWD with a top speed exceeding 200 miles per hour.

The company has been privately showing VIP clients the Lamborghini Huracan at exclusive parties all over the world. The world must wait until March to get close to the Huracan in Geneva, with pricing for the U.S. market coming later.

Canon Firmware Update for EOS-1Dx

Canon released an important update to the firmware on it's EOS-1DX Body today. Addressed are the following improvements:

  1. Auto focusing performance under low-light conditions has been enhanced when performing focusing before shooting in AI Servo AF mode. The enhancement comes from the improvement in tracking capability for the first image in the low-light conditions.
  2. The number of release parameters settings for the "AI Servo AF 2nd image priority" AF function has been increased to enable improved AF tracking in low light or maintain consistent high frames rates during continuous shooting.
  3. The number of parameters for acceleration/deceleration tracking in the AF Configuration Tool will has been increased.
  4. Exposure compensation can be performed when using manual exposure and ISO Auto.
  5. The minimum shutter speed limit for ISO Auto has been increased with shutter speeds up to 1/8000.
  6. A new function to keep the exposure constant by altering the ISO or shutter speed in manual exposure, when the aperture value changes when zooming or changing lenses has been added.
  7. A new option has been added to orientation linked AF point to enable only the AF point to switch as you change orientation rather than both AF point/ AF area settings
  8. A new option to continue to use the previously manually selected AF point as the initial starting AF point when switching to 61-point automatic selection has been added.
  9. New customization of the Exposure metering and AF controls has been added for more flexibility.
  10. The number of possibilities for controls to switch between one-shot AF and AI Servo AF using custom controls has been increased.
  11. A function has been added to allow the playback and review of protected images only.
  12. A phenomenon has been fixed in which the white balance may be disturbed by the timing of the shutter release when the drive mode is single shooting and a flash (E-TTL)is used
