• Meet the Roofless Huracan EVO Aperta That Lamborghini Wouldn’t Build

One-off creation shows one way to customize a Huracan Evo

LISTEN 04:57

There are people who aren’t satisfied with just a Huracan Evo; they want more or at the very least, something that’ll serve as a physical manifestation of their status. The drive to be different is the reason the Lamborghini Huracan Evo Aperta exists. It’s a one-off, Huracan Evo-based creation that’s without a roof, windows, or a windshield. It also has a V-10 engine with more power than the Huracan Evo’s “standard” V-10 unit. In other words, it’s a Lamborghini Huracan Evo unlike any other, or as some people like to say, “it’s a one-of-a-kind, roofless monster on four wheels.”

Was this a Lamborghini Huracan Evo before its transformation?

It’s true. This Lamborghini started its life as a Huracan Evo, and as you know about the Huracan Evo, it has a roof, pillars, windows, and a windshield. It’s also powered by a 5.2-liter V-10 engine that produces 630 horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque. It’s capable of accelerating from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.6 seconds and it can hit a top speed of 202 mph.

I’m mentioning all of that because the Lamborghini Huracan Evo Aperta is a completely different animal altogether. Sure, its roots can still be traced to the Huracan Evo, but this one-off creation from Daily Driven Exotics is a next-level creation that makes the Huracan Evo look like a purring kitty by comparison.

Let’s start with the obvious. The roof is gone. Since Daily Driven Exotics’ objective was to turn the supercar into a bonafide speedster, that part of the Huracan Evo had to go. With no more roof, the windows were ditched, too. Same with the pillars and, of course, the windshield. No self-respecting speedster would have a windshield, after all.

From there, the transformation turned to the Italian supercar’s colors. We’re not sure if Daily Driven Exotics is a fan of high-visibility traffic jackets, but we’re assuming that they are. How else would you explain the almost fluorescent-looking yellow exterior paint of this roofless Huracan Evo. Officially, it’s called the 3M Fluorescent Satin Yellow paint with a layer of Gloss Lamination 2 vinyl over it.

Aerodynamic bits were also thrown in, specifically the Vorsteiner Vincenzo Edizione Aero front fenders with the integrated vents and the side blades from the same manufacturer.

Speaking of Vorsteiner, the aftermarket wheels manufacturer also sent over a set of its raunchy V-FF 109 wheels wrapped in Gladiator XComp Performance tires.

Is there an engine upgrade, too?

Yes, there is, and it’s a rowdy one. We already mentioned what the kind of power the Lamborghini Huracan Evo’s 5.2-liter V-10 engine is capable of producing, but, apparently, 630 horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque still isn’t enough for Daily Driven Exotics.

So instead of keeping the engine stock, they sourced a supercharger from VF Engineering, added it to the powertrain, and tweaked a few more bits. The result is an output of 810 horsepower, which is 180 ponies more than the standard the output from the V-10 unit powering the “standard” Huracan Evo. Torque figures weren’t given, but we’re assuming that with all that extra power, somewhere north of 500 pound-feet of torque is a reasonable guesstimate on where that figure lies. In addition, a Fi Valved Sport Exhaust + Sport Cats was also installed to amplify the sound of the engine because why not, right?

Performance figures weren’t announced but expect this face smasher of a supercar to hit 0 to 60 mph in the low two seconds and hit a top speed comfortably north of 202 mph.

Unfortunately, you’re not going to get your hands on the Lamborghini Huracan Evo Aperta. No one is. This is a one-off creation that’ll remain with Daily Driver Exotics. Fortunately, DDE has promised to take the car on trips across North America so if you happen to see it in the flesh, try to keep your faces clean.

It’s not unusual for us to have our eyes wide open and our mouths agape in astonishment so count this episode as just the latest on a long history of them. The Lamborghini Huracan Evo Aperta is an extraordinary build that, best we know, was not sanctioned by Lamborghini. That bit of note should add another layer of aura to what is already one of the most extraordinary speedsters we’ve seen in recent memory, or at least since the Lamborghini Aventador J — the other one-off raging bull speedster that Lamborghini did build.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read full bio
