One of the First Lamborghini Huracan with Aero Kit Spotted in Newport Beach

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 18, 2016

The Lamborghini Huracan, the predecessor of the famous Lamborghini Gallardo, is Lamborghini’s contribution to the supercar world. This “entry-level” supercar carries behind its cockpit a 5.2-liter V10 with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission that’s powerful enough to release 571 horsepower on its rear wheels or 602 horsepower on all-wheel drive. It can go to up to 202 mph tops and can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in less than three seconds. This supercar has been out in the market since 2014 and all the hype about this Gallardo replacement has started to wane, so what better thing to do than to introduce a few upgrades to make this already powerful car even better.

Just recently, Lamborghini gave Huracan owners an option to purchase an aero kit that includes some carbon fiber on the front lip and side skirts as well as a large fixed rear wing out back. The former aids the Huracan to minimize lift by diverting air around the car and create downforce out front while the latter helps push the rear portion of the Huracan to the pavement allowing cornering at high speeds.

This aero kit helps the Huracan achieve better lap times than it already did in the past, cementing its dominance on the race track. The aero kit is readily available at the nearest Lamborghini dealerships so owners do not have to go to auto tuners to get their Huracans done. The entirety of the kit is one of the greatest ideas from the Italian automaker. It gives the Huracan a sinister and edgier look – which is basically how Lamborghinis are supposed to look.

Just recently, we found a pleasant surprise at the Newport Beach dealership in California. The 2016 Huracan fitted with the $22,500 aero kit is one of the first of its kind and in the area, too. True enough, it had carbon fiber extended front lip and side skirts, and an elongated rear diffuser to allow high-speed cornering. The said Lambo also had some pretty sick paint job done featuring white and red stripes. Its clear engine cover shows off its sport exhaust going extremely fine with its carbon fiber 5.2-liter V10 engine bay and LED lighting. All in all, this particular 2016 Huracan with aero kit looks especially menacing and powerful. This thing would probably eat up all of its competition.

The upgrade costs nothing compared to the almost $300,000 price of the whole vehicle and is most likely a fair deal for Huracan owners. We’re also excited to see how this thing performs on the road and how it would fair with other supercars. Let us know when you see one and don’t forget to catch it in action!
