The Lamborghini Huracan is still a relatively new supercar, having only made its debut at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. In the year that has passed, there have only been a handful of tuning firms that have taken stabs at creating programs for the supercar.

The latest to do so is xXx Performance, a German tuning firm who is no stranger to developing racy performance programs for some of Sant’Agata’s finest. Remember the work it did on a 2005 Lamborghini Gallardo back in 2013? That program came with twin-turbo upgrades that took the output of the Gallardo to as much as 1,200 horsepower.

Ok, before I get too carried away, this new program for the Huracan doesn’t have that level of power enhancement. What it does have is a series of modifications to the supercar’s exterior, engine, and wheels, all of which combine to create a pretty impressive tuning kit that owners of the Huracan should keep a close eye on. So what if it the tuned up Huracan can’t produce 1,200 horsepower; it’s still good for 690 horsepower. That’s 80 ponies more than the 610-horsepower from the stock model. Given the small number of performance upgrades for the Huracan, xXx Performance’s kit for the newest Lamborghini is as appealing as they come.

Exterior

xXx Performance’s modification on the Lamborghini Huracan is largely defined by two things: the impressive engine upgrade and the Chrome Lime Matte foil body wrap. The latter, in particular, fits in with the boisterous and charismatic character of the Huracan. You might even say that it brings out a spunkier and more aggressive side to the newest Lamborghini supercar. Either way, the matte foil body wrap works on the Huracan.

The other notable exterior upgrade is the new set of fancy wheels. For this program, xXx Performance opted for a bespoke set of 20- and 21-inch Oxford 4 one-piece forged alloy wheels with a specially milled front polish finish added in for good measure. The wheels are then wrapped in 245/30R20 and 325/25R21 low profile tires.

Interior

Note: Standard Lamborghini Huracan pictured here.

There doesn’t appear to be any interior modifications on the Lamborghini Huracan so anybody who avails of this tuning kit should expect the cabin of the Lamborghini supercar to retain its standard configuration. That’s not entirely a bad thing since the Huracan’s interior already looks spot-on gorgeous.

Drivetrain

xXx Performance gave the supercar’s performance makeup a new air intake and an ECU remap

xXx Performance is no stranger to performance upgrades and it certainly knows where to find the sweet spots of Lamborghinis. That much is evident with the modifications the German tuner made on the Huracan’s 5.2-liter V-10 engine. Not content with the 610-horsepower and 473-pound-feet of torque output of the newest Lamborghini, xXx Performance gave the supercar’s performance makeup a new air intake and an ECU remap to push the Huracan’s output up to 690 horsepower and 480 pound-feet of torque. The German tuner also installed a new sound flap control stainless steel sport exhaust to help reduce back pressure while retaining the Huracan’s standard seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and four-wheel-drive system.

xXx Performance didn’t elaborate on the performance improvements brought about by these modifications. That said, I fully expect this modified Huracan to be able to sprint from 0 to 60 mph in under three seconds to go with a top speed of around 205 mph.

Safety

A far less conspicuous improvement, although no less important is the modification made to the car’s suspension setup. For this particular program, xXx Performance installed a set of H&R lowering springs to drop the Huracan’s ride height closer to the ground by 0.98 inches. That may not seem like a big deal, but that relatively small drop in height plays a big role in helping the supercar hug the ground more tightly.

Pricing

No word yet on how much this program is going to cost. xXx Performance traditionally doesn’t release pricing figures, opting instead to rely on the age-old method of “contact us for pricing inquiries.”

One of the first tuners to get its hands on the Lamborghini Huracan is Wheelsandmore, considered as one of the most highly regarded aftermarket shops for supercars and luxury cars in Europe.

Wheelsandmore is known for its tendency to let loose with its performance modifications. It’s no different with the Huracan as the German tuner prepared not one, not two, but three power upgrades. The first stage, as the company wants to call it, only brings the output up to 640 horsepower since the only additions are a carbon-frame air filter and a hand-made, stainless steel exhaust system. Things get really serious though with the addition of a compressor kit with a reinforced clutch and a differential lock. That’s the next stage kit and it packs a walloping 777 horsepower. If that’s not enough, Wheelsandmore can also tweak the engine even further to generate a ridiculous output of 850 horsepower.

Oh, and the program also includes a new set of 20- and 21-inch, race-inspired FIWE wheels.

DMC Tuning typically falls under the same “more power!” category as Wheelsandmore. Unfortunately, it’s first stab at the Lamborghini Huracan came with a noticeable absence: it didn’t have any performance upgrades.

While it’s safe to assume that such a program will arrive sooner than later, the tuning firm’s “Affari” program only consists of aerodynamic upgrades that do give the Huracan a more aggressive appearance. The new front lip, for instance, carries both cosmetic and aerodynamic improvements to the supercar. The Same thing can be said for the new rear wing, base spoiler, and redesigned diffuser, all of which can be found in the rear section of the Huracan.

The other upgrade included in the Affari program is the new set of wheels on the Lambo supercar that’s made up of 20- and 21-inch forged allow wheels.

Conclusion

As far as tuning kits go, xXx Performance’s program for the Lamborghini Huracan isn’t the most bombastic in the market. That title still belongs to Wheelsandmore. But for what xXx Performance is offering, I think it’s one of the more complete programs that’s out in the market today.

Rest assured, the Huracan will be the beneficiary of more tuning kits down the road. For now though, xXx Performance’s program ranks right up there as one of my first choices if I was in the market for an aftermarket kit for the newest Lamborghini supercar.

Press Release

The word “Huracán” that means “Hurricane” in English, perfectly describes the character of the new entry-level Lamborghini. In full battle cry, the sound of its 5.2-liter V10 dispensing 610 hp to all four wheels through the 7-speed dual-clutch transmission certainly mimics the fury of a fully-fledged hurricane.

Now the storm is whipped up even more by xXx Performance from Bochum, Germany, with an engine upgrade that consist of a new air intake, a sound flap control stainless steel sport exhaust to reduce backpressure, and an ECU remap. Thus massaged, the screaming V10’s output rises to 690 hp, accompanied by 650 Nm of torque.

When the xXx Performance Huracán is moving rapidly, all you will catch is a green flash as it blows by. But when it is at rest, you have the chance to appreciate the Chrome Lime Matt foil body wrap perfectly applied to the cars crisp lines.

Complementing this bright body colour is a bespoke set of Oxforged 4 one-piece forged alloy wheels made to measure for xXx Performance by OXIGIN. Sized 9x20 and 12.5x21 inch, and wrapped in 245/30R20 and 325/25R21 low profile tyres, these low-weight, high-strength wheels feature a specially milled front polish finish that adds to their exclusive appearance.

Last by not least another xXx Performance exclusive is a set of H&R lowering springs that drops the ride height by 25 mm.
