In terms of Huracán performance in a road car, it is undeniable that at the top of the totem pole is the Huracán Super Trofeo Omologata. And the Omologata leads an extended family of Huracán models that has continued to give aspirated performance with dynamic handling and exemplary driving experience since it was launched back in 2014.

Automobili Lamborghini Chairman and CEO Stephen Winkelmann shared, “At its unveiling we said that with the Huracán, Lamborghini is writing the next chapter in its great history. The Huracán has delivered an evolution of design, technological know-how, driving adventures, track records and sales records since its launch. It was designed as a car to provide super sports emotion in every environment, from daily driving to thrilling performance on track. Every iteration of the Huracán has stayed true to that Lamborghini philosophy, while in motorsport the Huracán is not only the protagonist of the Lamborghini one-make Super Trofeo series but has proved its dominance in GT3 series throughout the world.”

Eight Successful Years

For eight exciting years, the Huracán has maintained their successes year after year thanks mainly to the wide range of versions that they have released throughout the years. So far, they have twelve road and three racing versions released.

The continued success of the Huracán is undeniable it formed a huge part of Lamborghini’s 2021 sales, selling 2,586 units, mainly due to the positive response of Lamborghini clients to the Huracán STO.
