Don't expect the Huracan to get a special final edition like the Aventador Ultimae.
After being on sale for ten years, the current-generation Lamborghini Aventador's lifecycle is coming to an end. Fittingly, Lamborghini's most successful V12-powered supercar is getting the send-off it deserves with the Aventador Ultimae. Limited to just 350 units, the Aventador Ultimae marks the end of an era as Lamborghini's last naturally-aspirated V12 supercar.
Its replacement will use an electrified version of Lamborghini's hallowed V12 when it arrives in 2023. But what about the V10-powered Huracan? Lamborghini's "entry-level" model will also be replaced with a new hybrid supercar. But don't get your hopes up about the Huracan getting a special final edition like its scissor-doored big brother.
"The V12 is so defining for Lamborghini that we received massive requests to do something special at the end of the [Aventador's] life cycle," Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann told Autocar. "I think this is unique, for sure, and then we will see what we do for other cars." His comments suggest the Huracan will have a more muted send-off than the Aventador.
Introduced in 2014, the Huracan launched as a replacement for the Gallardo. Since then, it's become Lamborghini's best-selling supercar of all time in terms of lifetime sales with over 15,000 units sold, surpassing the Gallardo. We would argue, then, that it deserves a special send-off. At this rate, though, it's only a matter of time before the Huracan gets overtaken by the Urus super SUV to become Lamborghini's all-time best-seller.
This means the Huracan STO could be the swansong for the Lamborghini's V10-powered supercar. And what a glorious swansong it is. The Huracan STO is effectively a homologated version of the Huracan ST Evo racer, making it a true race car for the road. It's powered by the same 630-hp 5.2-liter V10 as the Huracan Performante, but it only weighs 2,952 pounds, enabling it to sprint to 62 mph in three seconds and top out at 193 mph.
Due to arrive in 2024, the Huracan's successor will be a plug-in hybrid, and Winkelmann has hinted it could use a hybrid V6 like the Ferrari 296 GTB.
