Lamborghini has been saying for a long time that it is aiming to boost up the production of its supercars, but only recently the Italian sports car producer has made the 8,000th Huracan. This is highly commendable as it took Lamborghini only 3 years to reach this milestone. The Italian automaker sure is in a rush to roll them out, and when the Urus joins the line-up, one might chance upon a Wild Bull on every corner globally.
The aforementioned 8,000th vehicle is a Huracan Spyder that is sporting a Grigio Lynx gray. It will be delivered to a customer based in the United Kingdom. The Italian automaker is now celebrating the 8,000th unit of the Huracan that is rolled out of the assembly line in Sant'Agata Bolognese, just 3 years after the Huracan's introduction, another milestone in the 54-year-old history of the Italian automaker. Interested Huracan consumers will be offered a range of choices when deciding on which version of the super car to purchase.
The LP 610-4 is a unit that a daring driver can take on every season with its impressive all-wheel system and hardtop. Drivers who prefer a conventional vehicle can choose the 580-2 rear wheel drive. Moreover, if you are the person who opts to drop the top for an open-air experience at high speed, then the Spyder models will be the perfect pick for such. Sitting at the top of the tier is the superb Huracan Performante.
It sports a 5.2 L V10 that produces 630hp (470 kW) of power and 443 lb-ft (600 Newton-Meters) of torque. Its seven-speed dual clutch gearbox delivers the power to an all-wheel drive system. Furthermore, the Huracan utilizes the new Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva (ALA) active aerodynamic system to maximize grip. Previous spy shots revealed that a droptop alternative will be possibly rolled out soon.
At this point in time, the Huracan is more than halfway to overtaking the 14,022 units of the Gallardo released, which puts the Huracan as the Italian automaker's most prolific sports car ever. Even before, the Huracan is already considered a success by the Italian super car producer's standards, as Lamborghini successfully made an astounding 4,099 units of the Murcielago. Around 2016, the Italian automaker also celebrated the 5,000th Aventador released from Sant'Agata Bolognese, but it has not come close to eclipsing the Huracan's achievement yet.
Lamborghini sports car will be on its way to becoming a common sight on the streets as the Italian marque expects the upcoming Urus performance crossover to amplify the firm's yearly production volume. The CUV will be offered with a biturbo V8 that will produce 650hp (485 kW) of power, and will bear a price tag of around $200,000. A plug-in hybrid vehicle will join the ranks soon. Since the launch of the Huracan, Lamborghini has observed a continued rise in the number of sports car it has released globally: in 2014, it sold 2,530 cars; in 2015, it sold 3,245 cars and last year, it sold 3,457 cars.
