Lamborghini is celebrating a milestone, since the 10,000th Huracan has rolled off the assembly line. The 10,000th model was a Huracán Performante model, painted in Verde Mantis, which is the same color as the winning #11 Huracán GT3 that took top class honors in January’s endurance competition at the Daytona International Speedway.
Lamborghini also says that 2017 was a record year with 3,815 cars being delivered worldwide, which included 2,642 Huracan models. The Huracan originally launched in 2014 and is now available in six versions. It will still be a few years until the replacement for the Huracan arrives, but Maurizio Reggiani, Lamborghini’s chief technical officer recently gave Car and Driver a few details about the next-generation.
The big news is that the next-generation Huracan will continue to be powered by a naturally aspirated V-10 engine.
“I think in the field where the Huracán is, the effect of having two cylinders more than all the other competitors will be a big difference,” Reggiani revealed. “When we made the Gallardo with the first V-10, people thought we were crazy because of packaging, the weight, the cost, everything. And it was a storming success. For me I need to say thanks to the Gallardo engine, and it is clear that this is part of my vision for the DNA of the super-sports-car field of Lamborghini.”
