It’s almost been two years since Lamborghini unveiled the Huracán supercar. Seems like it was only yesterday, right? But yeah, the Huracán has been a part of our lives since making its debut at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. In that time, it’s been one of the most heavily tuned supercars in the business today. That isn’t a surprise because as one of the last holdouts of the naturally aspirated engines, the prospects of adding a turbocharger or a supercharger into the mix has been too good an opportunity for these tuners to pass up.

We’ve already seen a handful of them, and now comes O.CT Tuning with another one. The Austrian tuner’s kit is as you’d expect it to be for a Huracán program. It does away with any cosmetic and aerodynamic upgrades and instead focuses on the supercar’s 5.2-liter V-10 engine. Yep, there’s a supercharger involved here too and there’s a healthy amount of added horsepower that comes with it.

I’m not going to spoil how much it is, but the name of the program does give it away a little bit. In any case, O.CT Tuning’s latest program follows a long line of projects it has built for some of the finest sports cars and supercars in the land. It’s nice to see that with everything it has done in the past, O.CT hasn’t lost its touch in developing these impressive kits.

Exterior

The only exterior change of significance to the Lamborghini Huracán is the new set of 20- and 21-inch sporty rims on the front and rear, respectively. There are also some decals on the car, specifically the pair of “supercharged 800” graphics on the hood and sides of the car. Other than these items, this is strictly a standard Huracán sans any aftermarket work on its cosmetics and aerodynamic characteristics.

Interior

Just like the exterior, the Huracán’s cabin was left alone. There are no fancy leather or Alcantara trims, nor are there any splashes of carbon fiber spread throughout the cabin. Some people might be disappointed with the absence of any interior modifications, but in my mind, the Huracán already possesses one of the most refined interiors of any of today’s supercar. It’s perfectly okay for it remain the way it is.

Drivetrain

You knew at some point that an aftermarket company would start playing with the Huracán’s 5.2-liter V-10 engine, thinking of ways on how to add a supercharger into the mix and see where that takes the Italian supercar. It’s nice to see O.CT Tuning venture into this world with the confidence of a tuner that has years of experience building action-packed kits. The kit itself is relatively simple compared to other programs we’ve seen in the past. The most substantial element is the meaty supercharger unit, or as the Germans call it, a “compressor kit. The kit comes with its own software upgrade designed to optimize the relationship between the supercharger and the V-10 engine.

By and large, the new setup works just like O.CT planned it. With the new supercharger now squarely in the mix, the Huracán’s output increased to a stout 805 horsepower and 597 pound-feet of torque. That equates to a significant increase of 203 ponies and 184 pound-feet of twist over the supercar’s standard output of 602 ponies and 413 pound-feet of torque.

With the new supercharger now squarely in the mix, the Huracán’s output increased to a stout 805 horsepower and 597 pound-feet of torque.

The other notable addition is a sport exhaust system that weighs 44 pounds less than the standard unit. That may not seem like a lot for a car that weighs over 3,000 pounds, but it’s enough weight savings to help the Huracán sprint from 0 to 62 mph in just 2.5 seconds to go with a 0 to 124 mph time of 8.3 seconds. Top speed is still a mystery, but with this kind of engine upgrade, it should clear 215 mph without batting an eyelash.

As an added treat, owners of the Audi R8 V10 are also eligible to receive this tuning kit for the German supercar, thanks mainly to the R8 and the Huracán sharing the same engine. It’s unclear if the supercharger kit will net the same increase in power, but according to O.CT, the kit would have "similar values." Take that for what it’s worth.

Pricing

O.CT didn’t reveal the pricing details for this particular program so anybody who’s interested should contact the tuner directly, especially if purchasing the kit happens outside of Europe. You’ve got to be mindful of the shipping costs and accompanying taxes.

Competition

There have been no shortages of programs for the Lamborghini Huracán in recent months. In fact, the Huracán has been one of the most heavily tuned supercars in the past few years, a distinction that can be considered as a feather in the cap of the Lamborghini. Back in December 2015, Wheelsandmore had its own say at the Huracán, and just like O.CT Tuning, it relied on a multi-stage compressor kit to add more power to the car’s powerful V-10, resulting in an output of as much as 850 horsepower from Wheelsandmore’s Stage III engine kit. Those who opted for for something a little less mental also had the option of getting the Stage I kit that was good for 640 horsepower or the Stage II kit that brought the power levels up to 777 ponies.

Supposing a Stage III kit was installed into the Huracán, that would give Wheelsandmore’s program a small but distinct advantage over O.CT’s tuning kit. I’m sure it’s still going to be a competitive race between the two Lambos so choosing between one or the other would be out of preference to the performance upgrade and the wheel options.

Speaking of those wheels, Wheelsandmore also has a variety of 20- and 21-inch, race-inspired FIWE wheels on offer for the Huracán. Performance numbers were not announced at the time of the program’s debut, but with that kind of engine upgrade, a sprint time to 62 mph in 2.4 seconds is as good a guess as any. Likewise, a top speed of somewhere around 217 mph would also be in line with my estimates.

Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4 N-Largo by Novitec Torado

Another program for the Lamborghini Huracán that just made its debut was N-Largo kit b Novitec Torado. Straight from the same tuning firm as Novitec Ross and Novitec Tridente, this program is packed with the kind of stuff that Novitec Rosso and Novitec Tridente are both known for. The result is a kit that includes a comprehensive aerodynamic program, a suspension kit, a set of wheels, and most importantly, an engine program.

That program is also made up of a supercharger conversion that helps increase the Huracán’s output to an incredible 860 horsepower and 708 pound-feet of torque, almost 250 ponies and 295 pound-feet of torque more than the Lamborghini supercar’s standard output.

Novitec Torado didn’t say how the drastic performance increase will affect the Huracán’s performance times, but an educated guess would probably put the supercar’s 0-to-62 mph sprint time at about 2.6 seconds to go with a top speed of about 220 mph. These figures are also close to what O.CT Tuning was able to get out of its own program for the Huracán. In other words, why don’t all three kits just line up against one another and have a nice race. I’d pay to see that.

Conclusion

O.CT Tuning’s program for the Lamborghini Huracán is yet another example of the what the possibilities are if you slap on a supercharger into the car’s 5.2-liter V-10 engine. I can’t say that it’s the best kit I’ve seen because other tuners offer more power than the Austrian tuning firm. But that’s not to say that O.CT’s program is inferior. It just boils down to which of these kits you like the best because it really is too close to call which of them can be considered the best.
