Upgrades don’t come cheap, especially when they are made to topple other supercars.
The Lamborghini Huracan has been out since 2014. Now that initial sales surge of people rushing to get their Gallardo replacement has subsided, the automaker needs to give customers something else to spend their money on. We showed you evidence of this not long ago when our spy photographers spied what may be the Superleggera version of the Huracan testing on the Nurburgring. But as it turns out Lamborghini has much more in store for its "entry level" supercar than just a more powerful special edition.
We know this because we have just gotten an exclusive look into Lamborghini’s next move. Rather than a lightened and souped-up version of the baby Lambo, the Italian supercar maker will give owners the option to purchase an aero kit for the paltry sum of €19,850 ($22,428). So what does the base price of a brand new Subaru Impreza get a Huracan owner? Carbon fiber lipstick and a large fixed rear wing in the back, from the look of things. The carbon fiber on the lip of the front end and sides should help to divert air around the car to reduce lift and could even create downforce at the front. The rear wing should help to push the Huracan’s rear into the pavement and allow for cornering at higher speeds.
We think this is a great idea. It gives the Huracan a sinister look, which is central to everything from the company. It also should help squeeze better lap times out of the car. With the bone stock Huracan already able to beat competitors like the Audi R8 V10 Plus and the Porsche 911 Turbo S around the racetrack, this added aerodynamic ability will further cement the Huracan’s dominance. An added benefit is that now owners won't have to go to tuners like Liberty Walk or Mansory to get the badass treatment on their Huracans. No further details were released to us about the body kit, so we’ll have to wait until Lamborghini makes an official release to learn more. A special thanks to Lee K and the Supercar Advocates for tipping us off about this new kit!
