Looking Back At 10 Years Of the Lamborghini Huracan

BY Sean Loo

Damn, has it already been 10 years since the Lamborghini Huracan was launched? Time really flies.

Ever since its grand unveiling at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, the Lamborghini Huracán has been nothing short of a revelation in the world of super sports cars.

Named after a renowned bull, the Huracán embodies courage and versatility, evolving to conquer not just paved roads but also snow, dirt, and sand with its Sterrato variant.

It was also the pioneer model to showcase significant technological advancements like the digital dashboard in the Huracán LP 610-4, the active aerodynamics of the ALA system in the Huracán Performante, and the F1-derived CCM-R brakes in the Huracán STO.

A Decade of Dominance

2014 Huracán LP 610-4: Introduced at Geneva, this model came roaring into the scene with a V10 engine, pushing out 610 CV at 8250 rpm, paired with the Lamborghini LDF dual-clutch system and a four-wheel drive. It boasted an innovative digital dashboard, setting a new standard in the brand's tech offerings.

2016 Huracán LP 580-2: A playful twist, this rear-wheel-drive version offered a slightly detuned engine for those preferring a fun, yet potent driving experience without pushing to the extremes.

2016 Huracán Performante: Ushering in a focus on sports performance, this model featured enhanced aerodynamics and a lighter body thanks to extensive use of Forged Composite. It not only looked different but was engineered to act differently, setting a lap record at the Nürburgring in its debut year.

2019 Huracán EVO: With an upgraded V10 engine and aesthetics to match, the EVO variant brought about comprehensive enhancements including an all-new front end for improved downforce and a state-of-the-art infotainment system.

2020 Huracán EVO RWD: Reiterating the 'fun to drive' ethos, this model focused on delivering a pure, exhilarating rear-wheel-drive experience with a bespoke traction control system designed to enhance oversteering dynamics.

2021 Huracán STO: Directly inspired by its racetrack brethren, the STO was a street-legal race car that combined extreme performance with innovative technology, including a unique "cofango" that merged the front hood and fender into a single carbon fiber piece.

2022 Huracán Tecnica: This version bridged lifestyle, enjoyment, and performance, providing a harmonious balance of design and function, focusing on a refined aerodynamic design and rear-wheel steering.

2023 Huracán Sterrato: This model broke new ground by adapting the super sports car concept for off-road environments, equipped with a raised ride height and rugged tyres to tackle unconventional terrains.

Through each iteration, the Huracán has not only captured the imagination of car enthusiasts but also cemented Lamborghini’s reputation for groundbreaking innovation in the supercar domain.

Sadly, the Huracan’s production is coming to an end. But, with 10 years of production, I’m sure we’ll keep seeing them ply our roads for generations to come.
