Lamborghini Just Built Its 20,000th Huracan; First Lamborghini Model To Achieve This Incredible Milestone!
Lamborghini announced the Huracan for the first time back in 2014 and it only needed eight years to build its 20,000th example. We are talking about an STO model finished in Grigio Acheso Matt and built for a client in the Principality of Monaco.
During its eight years of history, the Huracan saw twelve road and three racing versions. Since 2014, 71-percent of customers have chosen the coupé versions and 29-percent opted for the open-air derivatives. As expected, the market with the highest sales is the U.S., followed by the U.K. and Greater China.
Lamborghini Has a Synthetically Explosive Plan for the Future
Lamborghini has a big year ahead of it. There’s a V-12 hybrid Aventador on the way, an update to the Lamborghini Urus, and at least two more cars. Beyond this, 2023 will see the launch of the Urus Hybrid, and by 2025, the company’s entire lineup will be hybridized with the first electric Lamborghini set to arrive sometime between then and 2030. From that point on, it’s expected that Lamborghini will only produce electric cars, but new word from within hints that this might not be the case after all.
Celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the Lamborghini Jalpa With These Awesome Pictures
We love celebrating car birthdays and this year is the Lamborghini Jalpa’s 40th anniversary. The car that was once considered the entry-level Lamborghini has now become 40 years old, having been produced between 1981 and 1988. With only 410 units produced, it certainly is rare and prices have started to reflect that. Here’s a brief overview of the 1980s “Baby Lambo”.
Lamborghini the First to Implement Innovative, Yet Strange Geo-Localization System
It goes without saying that technology evolves at a rapid pace. This is also true for the automotive industry, which is one of the most competitive in the world. With this in mind, it’s getting increasingly difficult to pioneer something that no one else has, but Lamborghini may have just achieved a revolution in-car connectivity, as they are equipping every version of their bestseller – the Lamborghini Huracan – with an innovative GPS system called “what3words.”

Lamborghini’s V-12 Super Hybrid - Infused With Sian DNA and Prepped for a Summer Debut
A few months ago, Lamborghini made it very clear that it will not give up on the V-12 engine. In fact, not one but two Lamborghini V-12 models are set to debut in the near future, one of which was the Ultimae. We also know what the other one is going to be. The Lamborghini Aventador is officially a decade old and a successor is due. As we mentioned a while back, the Aventador successor will feature a V-12 hybrid powertrain, based on the Sian. Moreover, according to CEO Stephan Winkelmann, it will debut later this year.
The Huracan Could Be The Most Emotional Lamborghini Ever Built
The Lamborghini Huracan STO never got the reveal it deserved thanks to the COVID pandemic. It’s been nearly a year, and the STO has finally made its way to its natural habitat – the race track. The days of delayed test drives are over, and – according to Lamborghini – the feedback was “positive all-around” thanks to the STO’s delivery of absolute performance and the way it evokes emotion.
This isn’t really surprising, though, as the STO is, arguably, the best Huracan ever built. Lamborghini’s tried and true 5.2-liter V-10 pumps out 631 horsepower and 417 pound-feet of torque. With that kind of power, you’ll get to 62 mph (100 km/h) in three-seconds flat when you put the hammer down. If you keep going, it takes just nine seconds for the sprint from 0 to 124 mph! That said, the STO is a bit slower than the Performante, with a top speed of 190 mph vs. 202 mph, but the STO is designed to rip corners apart with a vengeance anyway. The first year of STO production is already sold out, but you can still pay up $327,838 to get in on the next production year.
Volkswagen AG Maybe Have to Reconsider Selling Lamborghini As The Original Offer Grows Substantially
They say that every man has his price, and for the right amount of money, anybody will do anything. That concept is truly being put to the test as one consortium’s desire to purchase Lamborghini from Volkswagen AG is taking some pretty wild twists as it evolves into what could be the biggest automotive deal of the century.
Lamborghini Just Isn’t For Sale, Shoots Down $9.2 Billion Deal
Lamborghini is a very interesting manufacturer at the moment. This is due to its refusal to give up the big normally-aspirated V-12, in times of downsizing and hybridization. Even AMG – a company largely defined by its handmade V-8 engines, has switched to turbocharged inline-fours. And although we know that Lamborghini’s future vehicles will feature hybrid tech, they are not willing to give up their V-12 flagships.
A Big Money Offer Could Seal The Fate Of Lamborghini Once and For All
Lamborghini has kind of been in the news a lot lately. Back in March, we learned that a brand-new engine could push the Urus PHEV up to 800 horsepower and in April news broke that the Aventador’s successor could end up with an electrified V-12. The latter piece of news ended up making a lot of sense after Lamborghinis reveal of its roadmap to 2025 that includes mass hybridization followed by electrification sometime after 2025. A new report from Autocar, however, details something huge that could change the company forever!
Lamborghini’s Roadmap to 2025 and Beyond - What You Need to Know
Brands like Lamborghini, Ferrari, and even Bugatti, are so enriched with a strong history of fuel-born power that the transition to electrification naturally hangs in the balance between desire (or lack thereof) and necessity. One could even argue that exotic car makers are fighting emissions regulators left and right, continuing to pledge new ICE-powered cars while promising a future of electrification. Ferrari ,for example, is still looking to keep its V-12 around for a little longer, so much so, in fact, that it’s trying to get even more than 830 horsepower out of it. Meanwhile, Lamborghini is looking to launch two new V-12 models in 2021, and even after that,its new cars will be hybridized for at least a few more years.

Lamborghini and Bugatti’s Future in Electrification Hangs In The Balance Between Desire and Necessity
The automotive scene is constantly evolving since the dawn of cars. However, it wouldn’t be wrong to say that at the moment, we are in the midst of a paradigm shift from internal combustion engines to electric-powered vehicles.
TopGear recently spoke to Stephan Winkelmann, the head of Lamborghini and Bugatti, who didn’t give out any details other than saying that the brands will try to keep the combustion engine for as long as possible. Well, at least there’s hope.
