And its mid-life refresh is still to come.
The Huracan has been a phenomenal success for Lamborghini. Launched in 2014, the baby Lambo remains the Italian automaker’s best-selling car. Given that, until recently, there was only one other model, the Aventador, in the lineup this shouldn't come as too much of a surprise. The new Urus SUV will likely change that sales balance. But still, Lamborghini has just announced a Huracan milestone: 10,000 examples built in only four years.
The 10,000th Huracan has rolled off the assembly line, destined for a Canadian customer, and paying homage to Lamborghini’s GT3 victory in the 2018 Daytona 24 Hours race with the same Verde Mantis (aka green) paint as the winning car. Lamborghini built a record number of Huracans last year with a grand total of 2,642 units, a 12 percent increase over 2016. A total of 3,815 Lamborghinis were built in 2017, and the Huracan made up nearly 70 percent of that output. Just last week at Geneva, the Huracan Performante Spyder was unveiled, and it looked ridiculously cool in the show car’s matte blue paint.
All told, there are six Huracan derivatives, including the Performante coupe, four-wheel and rear-wheel drive coupe, and the Spyder. The Huracan Super Trofeo also, obviously, races in GT3. Considering the Huracan is only four years old, it still has plenty of life left in it. Its Gallardo predecessor was on the market for a decade. What’s next for the Huracan? A mid-life refresh, though Lamborghini has not made any comment on that nor provided a launch timeframe.
