Owning A Lamborghini Huracan Is Not That Expensive – Or Is It?

There are many petrolheads out there who might be able to stretch to a supercar, especially a used one, but refrain from doing so due to the maintenance and insurance costs this would entail.

However, the costs aren’t that scary when it comes to a Lamborghini Huracan – or at least that’s what a YouTuber who owns one claims.

Bought in 2016 with just 1,000 miles (1,609km) on the odo, the Italian supercar now has 23,000 miles (37,015km). During this time, it went through a few oil changes, which cost anywhere between $500 and $1,500 each depending on where they’re done, so taking it to a mechanic rather than an authorized dealer is more economical, and, as he says, you’d still keep your warranty.

Driving the Huracan on a daily basis, combined with the occasional track days and having fun on twisty roads will eat those tires quite fast, so how much does a new set cost? Well, that’ll be $1,700 then, which, for their size, is actually quite reasonable.

It wasn’t all smooth sailing, though, as the Huracan had an issue with the right front brake pad. This turned out to be quite expensive, as the carbon ceramic disc had to be changed, and it burned a $6,000 hole in his pocket. Moreover, since it was in the shop, it also got an oil change, fluid flush and its brake pads changed on all four corners. Thus, in the end, he was faced with a $9,000 bill; and that’s kinda scary…

So, how much did the owner of this Huracan had to pay after owning the car for a year and a half? Well, you can find out the answer by watching the video that follows.

    good thing I played this video at 2x speed.

    Uhm… Tires cost about the same, no matter what car you drive if you go for performance 20″ or 21″ (actually I’m quite envious of him, he got a much better price for his PSSs than I did). Same goes for brakes if you have carbon ceramics, and for the oil. The only variable price is the cost of labor at the dealer/service.

    BUT, that’s why you get service plans, cause everything is cheaper if you do that. Also, those brakes should have been covered by warranty.

      Sorry, disagree. Tires do not cost the same…it depends on who you get them from…and the markup…which can be huge.

      Carbon ceramic are expensive no matter what…that I agree. It’s also interesting that they are virtually useless for most driving conditions except extreme track use.

      Also I checked and the recommended oil..5w-30LL. Castrol sells 4 liters for approx. $50 US.
      It would seem $500.00 oil changes are a rip-off cause its a Lamborghini.

        I was talking about similar sized tires, like the ones high performance cars use. 20″ and 20″ with 245-255 fronts and 285-305 rears. It’s up to you to get the best price, and Internet will help you a lot 🙂

        With the oil is the same story, but dealers will happily rip you off adding insane labor prices.

    • Vassilis

      I’d guess the wider rear tyres are more expensive than the narrower fronts.

      • europeon

        Not by much, and not all the time

  • GobbleUp

    Worth it.

  • CLICKED ON THE ARTICLE, SAW WHO IT WAS THEN CLICKED BACK. SNEAKY HOW CARSCOOPS DOESN’T SHOW YOU IN THE HEADLINE WHO. FUNNY HOW THE PEOPLE WHO WHINE ABOUT DOUG KNOW BEFORE CLICKING HE’S THE REVIEWER AS HE’S ALWAYS PICTURED BUT MOST OTHER REVIEWERS WE MIGHT WANT TO AVOID ARE NOT SHOWN. INTERESTING.

    • Bo Hanan

      I love your comment.
      But Doug does have an awkwardly-annoying charm. Compared to the young lady in this video who only makes you hate her because she owns the car. And her voice doesn’t help either.

      • YEAH, I HAVE TO BE IN THE MOOD TO WATCH DOUG. SOMETIMES HE’S SO WOUND UP ON SOME KIND OF CAFFEINE HIGH IT’S HARD TO WATCH. I ALWAYS EXIT WHEN HE GETS TO THE “DOUG SCORE”. LIKE I SAID YOU KNOW BEFORE YOU CLICK HE’S REVIEWING SINCE HE IS ALWAYS PICTURED BUT MOST OF THE TIME YOU DON’T KNOW UNTIL YOU SCROLL DOWN TO THE VIDEO. I GUESS WE ALL HAVE PRESENTERS WE WILL AND WILL NOT WATCH.

    Please no porker videos. Must be nice to have a rich daddy.

  • Wandering_Spirit

    Except for the carboceramic brakes etc the rest is relatively affordable.

  • Bo Hanan

    Why does this young lady keep popping up on Carscoops? There are so many better Youtube Auto Bloggers out there.

    • jsz00

      Most of them are immature and terrible. More informative if you just read Lamborghini’s owners manual.

  • Six_Tymes

    “Auto Up shift” whooopEEE

    i wonder if he can talk any faster? i think if he had more words said per minute his videos would be more fun. another detail he may want to work on, his voice pitch, should be higher. i love listening to chalk screeching on a black board. 10 minutes in, i need a rest…

    rich douche is rich douche

    Tracking any car is much more expensive than if you don’t. And if something is ever going to fail, then it’s going to fail much faster than if you drive it normally. $1700 for Lamborghini tires doesn’t seem that unreasonable. He’s putting a lot of miles on this thing. He should just go to his mechanic now and dump the contents of his wallet onto the table.

  • nastinupe

    So not too much more than a Porsche 911. Moral of the story is, don’t get Ceramic breaks. That would have saved him over $6000. The cost to repair regular breaks would have been around $1,500.

    How can anyone watch this dude?
