Lamborghini produce the 20,000th Huracán

Already the most sold Lamborghini model in the company’s history, the 20,000th Huracán celebrates a significant milestone.

The Huracán's success has endured for eight years, an attraction maintained over time thanks to a wide range of versions: 12 road and three racing versions.

Since 2014 the Lamborghini Huracán has set many records. But for the passionate brand it’s beloved status around the world and it’s place as the most-produced Lamborghini is arguably the most cherished.

The 20,000th Huracán has just rolled off the Sant’Agata production line, an STO model in glorious Grigio Acheso Matt, prepared for a client in the Principality of Monaco.

The Huracán Super Trofeo Omologata (STO) is the pinnacle of Huracán performance in a road car with racing spirit, it heads an extended family of Huracán models that have delivered aspirated performance with characterized dynamic handling and driving emotion since its 2014 launch.

 

“At its unveiling we said that with the Huracán, Lamborghini is writing the next chapter in its great history,” says Automobili Lamborghini Chairman and CEO Stephan Winkelmann. “The Huracán has delivered an evolution of design, technological know-how, driving adventures, track records and sales records since its launch. It was designed as a car to provide super sports emotion in every environment, from daily driving to thrilling performance on track.

Every iteration of the Huracán has stayed true to that Lamborghini philosophy, while in motorsport the Huracán is not only the protagonist of the Lamborghini one-make Super Trofeo series but has proved its dominance in GT3 series throughout the world.”

 

The first Huracán coupé (LP 610-4) debuted at the 2014 Geneva motor show with four-wheel drive, 610 hp, acceleration from 0-100 km/h of 3.2 secs and a top speed of 325 km/h. Since then 71% of customers have chosen the coupé versions and 29% the open-air derivatives.

Understandably the USA is the largest market with more than 32% of all Huracán versions delivered in the last eight years, followed by the UK and Greater China. This solid success continues also today: Huracán models largely contributed to the 2021 sales record with a strong increase sales up to 2,586 units, due partly to the impetus from the very positive customer response to the Huracán STO.

Innovations the Huracán introduced to the brand include the ANIMA drive mode selection, on-board gyroscope LPI system, dual fuel injection and LEDs lights throughout the car: an industry first in the super sports segment.

For a more analogue and edgy experience the RWD variant also proved a popular option featuring the same 5.2-litre V10 as the 610-4 but with power reduced to 580 hp and torque of 533 Nm. Thanks to the absence of four-wheel drive, Lamborghini's engineers have achieved a weight saving of 33 kg compared to the Huracán coupé, at just 1,389 kg and top speed of 320 km/h.

 

In 2016 the 640 hp Huracán Performante stormed into markets and upped the ante again with Lamborghini’s patented ALA active aerodynamic innovations, it took the Nordschleife Nürburgring lap record for production cars and won awards around the world. Outputting 640 hp at 8,000 rpm, producing 600 Nm of torque at 6,500 rpm, accelerating from 0-100 km/h in 3.1 seconds and 0-200 km/h in 9.3 seconds the Performante models set a new benchmark for the brand.

The Performante lead to the two most focussed Lamborghini models. The Huracán EVO ‘evolution’ in 2019 and the breath taking Huracán STO.

The EVO retained the Performante’s 640 hp and combined with rear-wheel steering, torque vectoring and LDVI with predictive logic. The EVO Spyder adopted the next-generation vehicle dynamic control and aerodynamics developed for the coupé, with the 5.2-liter naturally aspirated Lamborghini V10 engine uprated for a higher power output and incorporating Titanium intake valves.

While the STO represents Lamborghini Squadra Corse at its heart. Launched in 2021 delivered Lamborghini’s motorsport experience and know-how in a homologated road car. With its 640 hp naturally aspirated V10 engine generating 565 Nm at 6,500 rpm, the rear-wheel drive Huracán STO delivers exhilarating acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.0 seconds, from 0 to 200 km/h in 9.0 seconds, and a top speed of 310 km/h.

Beyond the 20,000th Huracán the nameplate continues to evolve as 2022 sees the Huracán Tecnica, designed and engineered for the best of both worlds

The Tecnica’s moniker embodies the advanced evolution of the Huracan’s technical prowess and is as much a Huracán externally as it is under the hood, with its new looks accenting improved aerodynamics for heightened performance, stability and ease of use, particularly on a circuit. 

Taking its engine from the Huracán STO, with an increase of 30 CV over the Huracán EVO rear-wheel drive (RWD), the powertrain delivers 565 Nm of torque at maximum 6,500 rpm and improved acceleration of 0-100 km/h in 3.2 seconds.

 

With a rich legacy of aggressive performance, styling, innovation and motorsport success the Huracán has cemented itself as a legendary model in the fabric of supercars. After 20,000 units produced, it continues to get better and better.
