Building A Lamborghini Huracan From A Hyundai Elantra Is A Terrible Idea

Offbeat / Comments

Why are people turning Hyundais into Lambos?

Most people who can't afford a Lamborghini are okay with it. They simply keep on driving their affordable sedan, working their butts off until the day said Lambo is within reach.

Others use a body kit, even if it comes at the expense of their dignity. We've seen at least one decent replica, but most are utterly terrifying and should be killed with fire.

If you are hellbent on replicating a Lambo, at least start with something semi-decent and not a Hyundai Elantra. There's nothing wrong with the Elantra, but it has absolutely nothing in common with a Huracan. We suppose both have exterior lights, but that's about it.

Oddly, this is not the first Lambo-inspired Elantra. Elantra drivers, are you okay?

This unholy creation first surfaced on the Motos Maroc Facebook page, though it's unclear who it belongs to.

The front still features the standard previous-generation Elantra headlights, but the rest is obviously Huracan-inspired. It has gaping air intakes to cool the massive 1.8-liter naturally aspirated inline-four. The badge is also Lambo-like, but instead of a bull, it depicts a horse. This Hyundai appears to be an equal opportunity offender, borrowing from Lamborghini and Ford.

From the rear, we can see only a portion of a spoiler, but the rear business is down below. The lower bumper boasts a diffuser to suck this 148 horsepower monster closer to the ground.

Our favorite design upgrades are the dramatic side skirts, which direct airflow to nowhere. If anything, they likely increase drag.

The owner was likely inspired by the recent introduction of the Huracan STO. Out of the many STO exterior options available, the most famous is the orange paint used to great effect when paired with Blu Laufey Arancio Vanto. The Elambo also uses orange within the front air intake, on the brake calipers, and rear diffuser.

While we'd like to buy this car and burn it to the ground, we respect the owner's commitment to this project. As far as we can tell, there are no standard body kits for turning an Elantra into an Elambo, which means this was done by hand. That's at least something to be proud of.
