It's a Lamborghini built for off road, need we say more?
Lamborghinis are best known for sticking to the roads of Miami and the tracks of Italy. Machines like the Lamborghini Aventador and Huracan are built to go fast, corner well, and thrill their occupants. And let's not forget the most important element: it's supposed to look good and make you feel good.
The B Is For Build Lamborghini Huracan might be an unholy Frankenstein's monster built from the ashes of a once-great vehicle, but to many, it is even greater than the original. We recently covered the B is for build team putting the final touches on this crazy machine, and now we get the chance to finally see it in action. We're happy to report that it absolutely rips.
Owner Chris Steinbacher and his team have been hard at work rebuilding and modifying this previously wrecked Huracan, calling it the 'Jumpacan', and it seems it finally paid off. We've seen some incredible Lambo builds, but most of them focus on outright speed or improved looks. This rally-spec Huracan takes a different approach. With a modified space frame chassis and a big ol' LS V8 in the back, this thing is more American than Italian, and looks and sounds like a true Baja racer. The car features 35-inch front, and 37-inch rear tires, and a braking system borrowed from a Ford Mustang Shelby GT500.
The car was built to compete in the Mint 400 series, a race known for hosting all sorts of wild and wonderful machines. In the video Steinbacher takes the car out for its first shakedown passes, and it performs flawlessly but notes that the car requires more ground clearance, a decent skid plate to protect the car's guts, and more travel in the suspension system. We believe that the most important thing is that it didn't completely fall apart at the first sign of a bump. The Jumpacan has come a long way, and we can't wait to see how this build progresses before it makes its racing debut.
