Meet The Rally-Ready Lamborgini Huracan With LS Power

Video / Comments

It looks like a Mad Max Batmobile.

Lamborghini is one of the most-famous and most-loved supercar manufacturers on the face of the earth, continually stunning the car community with vehicles that seem to defy the laws of physics. Cars like the Lamborghini Sian are truly awe-inspiring, but few people ever get to exploit these cars to the fullest of their capabilities.

These people have never met the guys from B Is For Build. Owner of the channel Chris Steinbacher has been working on a Lamborghini Huracan so off the beaten path, that he's literally taking it off the beaten path. Introducing the Off-Road Huracan.

We've seen 900-plus-hp Huracans, and even a Lamborghini covered in underwear, but it's a rare treat to see one fully prepped for off-road rally racing. Named the 'Jumpacan', this salvaged Huracan has been rebuilt and transformed from road racer to dirt muncher.

The build started with a complete strip down, after which SE Motors in California gave the car a full 3D scan to develop special bracing parts and a completely custom suspension setup to hold those 35-inch front and 37-inch rear tires in place. Unfortunately, the original motor has been dumped in favor of an LS V8 (of course) which sends power to a Graziano transaxle. Braking is taken care of by a set of Mustang GT500 rotors and pads.

The exterior of this thing looks like a futuristic Baja racer or maybe a Mad Max extra, though it's still missing a windshield. In the video, Steinbacker is seen buttoning up a few last details like the exhaust system, and fine-tuning the brake system.

After sorting out these niggles, the Jumpacan heads out on the road for its first test run. It looks great moving under its own power, especially when doing massive burnouts. The car was built to compete in the Mint 400 off-road race, but Covid put a stop to those plans, which gives Steinbacher plenty of time to finish the few remaining issues.
