The 10,000th Huracan has just rolled off the assembly line, just shy of four years since it was introduced in 2014. The milestone unit, a Huracan Performante, which pays homage to Lamborghini’s GT3 victory in the 2018 Daytona 24 hours race, will call Canada its new home.
The V10 model will wear the same Verde Mantis (green) color as the winning #11 Huracán GT3 that took top class honours in January’s world-famous endurance competition at the Daytona International Speedway.Lamborghini achieved a record year in 2017 with 3,815 cars delivered to customers worldwide, including 2,642 Huracán units (an increase of more than 10%) leaving the factory in Sant’Agata Bolognese, Italy.
There are currently six different variants to Lamborghini’s V10 model – the Huracán Performante that holds records at eight different circuits around the world, the recently unveiled Performante Spyder and the four-wheel and two-wheel drive versions in both coupé and Spyder configurations.
While the sales figures for the Huracan has clearly been encouraging, we have absolutely no doubt that these figures will soon be eclipsed by the all-new Lamborghini Urus – the world’s first Super SUV.
There’s also little doubt that the Urus will live up to that name – with its 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 oozing 650 hp and 850 Nm. It’s blistering pace allows 0 to 100 km/h to be done in just 3.6 seconds, onward to a staggering 305 km/h top speed. This is a 2.2-ton SUV, mind you.
